Valentine’s Day is just around the corner – what will your day look like? Have you planned your outing yet? Don’t worry – we have your back. We asked local experts which are the most romantic places and neighbourhoods of Paris, Brussels, Rome, Barcelona and London!
These are the most romantic neighbourhoods of the European capitals
London – Notting Hill
Colourful Victorian houses, private gardens, small streets full of charm, numerous cafes, elegant shops, market atmosphere – what more could you ask for?! Notting Hill is, without a doubt, one of the most popular places in London, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t explore it with your loved one!
Paris – the wall “je t’aime” or “i love you” in Montmartre
A space where love comes together in every language. The word “I love you” is written 1000 times in more than 300 languages. Find yours, snap a photo and make a memory – the Je T’aime wall is the place to be.
Rome – Ponte Milvio
Gianicolo, near Trastevere, is absolutely perfect for a date – it offers a beautiful and romantic view of the city. And the second best is Ponte Milvio, also known as the Lovers’ Bridge, where couples and friends leave padlocks with their names and a message. Afterwards, head to Trastevere and grab yourself a romantic dinner – your day is sorted!
Madrid – Arguelles
When you’re in Madrid, a must-do thing is to watch at least one Templo de Debod sunset. Whether you’re alone or with your date – it doesn’t matter. It’s magical. But if you take your date to Templo de Debod for Valentine’s Day, it’s a win-win situation. Not only can you chill in the park – the site is possibly one of the most scenic places in Madrid and a perfect opportunity to snap that cute photo and frame it.
Barcelona - Bunkers de Carmel
You may need to take a little hike, but the views from the top across the whole of Barcelona will reward you infinetly. Pack yourself a picnic basket and head on up for a romantic escape (albeit, with potential crowds).
Brussels – Le petit Sablon
Romantic and noble, the Petit Sablon is a good starting point for a weekend in Brussels. Romantic fountains and gardens mixed in with some French history and artistic pieces – go on a romantic stroll!
Dublin – Howth Harbour and Village
It’s one of the most romantic walks you will ever take – walk to Bog of Frogs Loop (we’re not making this up), enjoy a fantastic scenery and listen to the sound of the waves. Maybe that’s the place where you should ask that special question! ?
