Romantic Getaways in Europe

Europe is home to some of the most romantic destinations in the world. There’s Paris for its “je ne sais quoi” appeal and rooftop views across the City of Light; Rome for its resplendent architecture, hidden piazzas and cobblestoned streets and Prague for its pastel-coloured buildings and cruises along the Vltava river. A European city break is ideal for a long-weekend where you can spend a couple of days exploring boutiques and galleries, eating in neighbourhood restaurants and enjoying quality time together.
