1. Rome, Italy

Starting with one of my favourite romantic destinations ever, Rome. 

Rome is famous for its romance and it’s long been a popular destination for couples all around the world.

I visited Rome on a romantic getaway for my birthday and it was spectacular. 

There are so many amazing things to do in Rome for couples.

Rome oozes romance and there’s nothing quite like enjoying an authentic Italian meal with a glass of prosecco with a view of the Trevi Fountain, or The Colosseum. It’s truly magical. 

Rome has lots of amazing sights to see, but one of my favourite romantic memories is a boat ride at the Borghese Lake. 

It’s only €3 to rent a boat and you can create your very own romantic scene…

Romantic things to do in Rome, Italy 

  • Romantic boat ride at the Borghese Lake 
  • Dinner by the Trevi Fountain 
  • Rent a tandem bike & ride around the gardens of Villa Borghese
  • Ride around Rome in a Vespa

2. Fussen, Bavaria

The charming town of Fussen is nestled in the Bavaria region of Germany and it oozes charm and charisma. 

We visited during the winter months and it was extremely magical

The town was filled with charming lights, a christmassy vibe and there was snow on the ground. 

Fussen town itself is quite small, which gives it an authentic vibe. 

The cobblestone streets have beautiful local restaurants, great bakeries with traditional treats, and it’s home to one of the most romantic castles in the world: Neuschwanstein Castle. 

This castle stands on a rugged hill above the village of Hohenschwangau and is said to be the castle on which the iconic Disney castle is based. 

It’s STUNNING and a romantic horse & carriage ride here with a cup of mulled wine with epic views is what romantic memories are made off.

  • Dine by candlelight in the charming town centre 
  • Visit and wander the grounds of Neuschwanstein Castle

3. Venice, Italy

Venice is one of the most charming cities ever and there is a reason it’s one of the most popular honeymoon destinations in the world.

With so many things to do in Venice, you'll be spoilt for choice.

I think the fact that it’s a water-based city with no vehicles adds to the romantic atmosphere. 

In Venice you can walk hand-in-hand everywhere, or take a romantic gondola ride along the beautiful Venice canals. 

Everything about Venice is romantic, it feels like it’s been built for couples. 

There’s nothing quite like wandering the small streets, getting lost then stumbling upon a wine bar tucked away from the crowds and enjoying a delicious tiramisu with a delicious Italian wine. 

Venice also has very romantic attractions on offer including The Rialto Bridge, countless museums, stunning churches and more. 

Romantic things to do in Venice

  • Dine and listen to live music in St Mark's Square 
  • Private Gondola Ride (you can even pay extra to be serenaded)

Best time to visit for optimal romance? Spring is a perfect time as the crowds are less and the sun is shining.

4. Bruges, Belgium

A fairy-tale medieval town, with picturesque canals, beautiful squares and cobbled streets, Bruges ticks all the boxes when it comes to romantic destinations. 

I actually think it’s one of the most romantic places to visit in Europe, but doesn't get enough credit. 

It’s known as the Venice of the north, so if you’ve already been to Venice, then it’s time to check out Bruges. 

Popular activities in Bruges were made for two and you can learn to make traditional Belgium chocolate in a private class, or even take a private beer sampling class, since Belgium is famous for it’s beer and chocolate! 

You’ll easily get caught up in the romantic charm of a trip to Bruges.

5. Bali, Indonesia

Bali is one of my favourite romantic destinations in the world and it’s absolutely bursting with romantic things to do, so much so, that I’ve compiled a whole post that’s dedicated to them.

The great thing about a romantic trip to Bali is that it will suit all styles of couples, and all budgets. 

Bali can be as cheap or as expensive as you want. 

Couples who love to relax will enjoy the laid back vibes of Ubud & Sideman with their stunning rice terraces, traditional Balinese massages and delicious smoothie bowls. 

More adventurous couples will find fun in romantic sunrise hikes up volcanoes, snorkelling at Nusa Lembongan and much more.

6. Mirissa, Sri Lanka

I personally think that all of Sri Lanka is pretty romantic, which is why it’s a popular romantic destination for honeymooners. 

But, one of my favourite romantic locations is Mirissa. 

Its beautiful beaches, secret beaches, unique sights and the fact that you can dine on the beach under the stars, all make it super romantic. 

This is one of my favourite memories in Mirissa, dining under the stars with a delicious meal and a cocktail in hand. 

You can also swim with turtles, learn to surf or go whale watching.

7. Verona, Italy

“In fair Verona, where we lay our scene, From ancient grudge break to new mutiny, Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean.” 

If you’re wondering what makes Verona one of the most romantic destinations in the world? Romeo & Juliet. 

The story of Romeo and Juliet is set in Verona and on a trip to this romantic city, you can visit Juliet’s Balcony and have your loved one shout romantic words to you,(“Romeo, Romeo, where there art thou Romeo?”) or you can visit the church in which the two were said to be wed. 

If you’re a sucker for romance (like me), then you’ll adore this charming city.

Nicaragua might not be a location you traditionally think of when considering romantic places to visit in the world, but you would be pleasantly surprised. 

I am yet to find a country that produced epic romantic sunsets like Nicaragua, and one of my favourite romantic spots in the country is the charming town of Granada. 

With cute, colorful streets and very unique experiences on offer, this is a romantic destination with a difference. You can witness the awesomeness of seeing an active volcano together, with real lava, a romantic chocolate making class at the Chocolate Museum and much more.

9. Dubrovnik, Croatia

Dubrovnik is one of my favorite romantic city breaks in Europe.

I love Croatia in general and there are lots of amazing spots to visit in the country, but there is a unique charm and romantic vibe to Dubrovnik. 

It’s the home of various spots in Game Of Thrones, including the iconic King’s Landing! 

But Dubronik is a heritage town bursting with culture, and a super dreamy destination for couple travellers!

There are lots of really cool activities in the centre, but one of my favorite things to do is simply “get lost” by wandering down the winding streets and you’ll come across cute, secluded restaurants serving up delicious food in a romantic setting.

Romantic things to do in Dubrovnik, Croatia 

  • Ride the Dubrovnik Cable Car for epic views over the city 
  • Rent a double Kayak and discover the beautiful waters 
  • Explore the quaint paradise island of Lokrum, just a 10 minute boat ride away

Rovaniemi is the heart of Lapland, and the home of Santa Claus, so if you’re looking for the perfect winter romantic destination, then there is nothing quite like Lapland! 

This is seriously one of my favorite places in the world, and I have such fond memories.

There are so many awesome and unique activities for couples. 

Take a private Northern Lights spotting tour and prepare yourself for something epic, or why not go sledding with cute dogs, or visit a reindeer farm!

Lapland is one of the more expensive romantic destinations, but it’s a once in a lifetime experience and totally worth it. 

You can even stay in an igloo!

11. Turin, Italy

Torino is a charming Italian city that often gets overlooked as a romantic destination for couples, and it shouldn’t! 

It’s got everything you would expect from an Italian getaway: fantastic food, awesome sights, breathtaking views (it’s surrounded by the alps) and friendly people.

It actually has one other benefit that many other Italian cities don’t have it, it’s MUCH cheaper than the rest. 

It’s extremely good value, for if you’re on the lookout for a romantic getaway on a budget, then Turin is a great choice

It’s also the chocolate capital of Italy, and what’s more romantic than chocolate!?

If you’re looking for French charm, but don’t want to splash out on Paris, then Rouen is a great choice. 

It’s located in the Normandy region of France which is truly beautiful and everything you would want in a romantic destination. 

Rouen is the perfect blend of new and old and there are lots of stunning gothic churches to see, alongside the famous Joan Of Arc sight.

Dublin is the capital of Ireland, and it’s one of my favourite city break destinations for couples! 

Dublin is bursting with things to do, many of which are extremely romantic, you just have to know where to look. 

It’s a great destination in Ireland to get a dose of Irish atmosphere and charm, and a good base for some pretty cool day trips, including to the Slane Castle (one of Ireland’s most famous castles).

Estonia is a wonderful place to visit, and Tallinn is another fantastic romantic destination in Europe.

Tallinn is bursting with charm and charisma, and the Old Town there is probably one of my favourites in all of Europe. 

It’s got lots of romantic charm and there is so much to discover in Tallinn that you’ll never be bored. From stunning castles, city walls and a charming old town to discover, you’ll fall in love with Tallinn.

Paris is such a special place, and it’s known as “The City Of Love”.

Paris oozes romance from every street and corner and is filled with beautiful sights to see and romantic things to do.

Warsaw was one of the most interesting cities I’ve been to, and it definitely makes the list of romantic destinations around the world for couples! 

Not only is Warsaw cheap, it offers delicious Polish cuisine (which I LOVE!), lots of great cocktail bars, a crazy unique history and so much more. 

It’s a wonderful place to enjoy a few days away together. Of if you're pushed for time (liek we were) then check out how to experience Warsaw in one day.

The final place on my list of romantic destinations around the world is the brilliant capital of Germany, Berlin. 

Berlin is a fantastic city, and it’s absolutely bursting with amazing things to see and do

I’ve visited Berlin twice now, and I still haven’t seen everything. 

I recommend a visit to Berlin during the winter season because of the many many amazing Christmas markets dotted around the city, it adds a really romantic atmosphere!

Ideally you should try to spend at least 2 days in Berlin, making it a great spot for a romantic city break.
