Europe's 7 best romantic escapes

The most romantic things to to in Europe

Travel can accelerate and deepen any relationship. Here are a few ways to make your trip even more romantic:

Take a dinner cruise on the Seine. The sights of Paris glide slowly past as you dine on fine French cuisine and float down the moon-dappled waters of the city's famed river... Full Story

View the sunset on the Greek Island of Santoríni. With the deep green of the crescent caldera at your feet, you watch from the hotel room's private balcony as the fiery sun douses itself in the Mediterranean.

Picnic among the vineyards of Tuscany. Buy some soft sheep's cheese, crusty bread, ripe fruit, perfect olives, savory salami, and a bottle of Chianti. Pull off on the side of the road and spread your blanket amid the landscape that inspired Michelangelo and da Vinci... Full Story

Spend an evening at the opera in Vienna. Indulge in high culture at one of the world's greatest and most elegant opera houses... Full Story

Float along the moonlit canals of Venice on a gondola. This particular brand of romance comes at a price, but you can't beat the setting... Full Story

Have a long, candlelit dinner anywhere. European meals were meant for lingering, with multiple courses drawn out over hours, fine wine, and lots of atmosphere.

Stroll through the city in the evening. After dinner, wander the streets of town without a guidebook in hand. Cross the Charles Bridge in Prague, climb the Gianicolo in Rome for a nighttime panorama of the city, explore the back streets or promenade down the Riva degli Schiavoni in Venice, or walk along the quays of the Seine or through Montmartre in Paris.
