In early 2021, Taylor announced that she would no longer be rescheduling concert dates.

When the tickets went on sale for the US show dates, a stage design was unintentionally leaked by Ticketmaster, as well as a scrapped stage for the SoFi Stadium shows. It featured a 360° heart-shaped stage in the middle of the venue. The scrapped stage design was a mix between the 1989 World Tour and Reputation Stadium Tour stages.

Taylor Swift Taps Paramore for European Eras Tour Run

Taylor Swift knows we need more — so she’s giving us just that. The singer has added 14 more shows to the European/U.K. leg of her Eras Tour , and announced that Paramore will provide support throughout the trek.

“Really can’t contain my excitement because… we’re adding 14 new shows to The Eras Tour,” Swift wrote on Twitter Wednesday, July 5. “And I get to travel the world doing shows with @paramore !! Hayley and I have been friends since we were teens in Nashville and now we get to frolic around the UK/Europe next summer??? I’m screaming???”

I’m… pic.twitter.com/kl1aijxR2o — Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) July 5, 2023

Last month, Swift added dozens of shows to her Taylor Swift: The Eras stadium tour — bringing the total count of shows to a whooping 104 nights . She also extended her run at Los Angeles’ So-Fi Stadium with a sixth show scheduled for Aug. 7.

The new addition comes after the singer announced shows in Japan, Australia, Singapore, and Europe earlier this week. (See below for the full tour dates.)

“EXCUSE ME HI I HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY 🙋‍♀️,” she wrote on Instagram. “I can’t wait to see so many of you on The Eras Tour next year at these new international dates!”

She also added more dates to her already-announced Latin America tour. After wrapping her U.S. dates in Los Angeles on Aug. 9, Swift will head to Mexico City for four straight shows at Foro Sol starting Aug. 24. She’ll then stop in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and both Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo in Brazil in November.

Swift first announced the tour last October after she completely took over the Billboard Hot 100 top 10 with Midnights . The added dates, which follow the addition of eight new shows last week, were slotted in “due to unprecedented demand,” according to the singer’s camp.

“Good Morning America, it’s Taylor,” Swift said during the announcement. “I wanted to tell you something that I’ve been so excited about for a really long time and I’ve been planning for ages, and I finally get to tell you I’m going back on tour. The tour is called the ‘Eras’ tour, and it’s a journey through all of my musical eras of my career.”

The tour began on March 17 in Glendale, Arizona and extends through Aug. 9, where the singer will wrap with a fifth night at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles. Swift still has stops left in Detroit, Minneapolis, Cincinnati, Seattle, and Santa Clara.

Fuerza Régida Want You to See Them on Tour — But Don't Fall in Love

Taylor swift teases 'the tortured poets department' during solar eclipse, anitta plots first official north american tour in support of 'funk generation'.

Across the tour, Swift is being supported in select cities by a combination of special guests including Paramore, beabadoobee, Phoebe Bridgers, girl in red, MUNA, HAIM, GAYLE, Gracie Abrams, and OWENN.

The Eras tour follows the cancelation of her planned 2020 Lover Fest tour, which was originally going to see her make stadium stops in Los Angeles, Boston, and New York, along with Brazil, Denmark, Norway, and Poland. “This is an unprecedented pandemic that has changed everyone’s plans and no one knows what the touring landscape is going to look like in the near future,” she wrote in 2021.

Swift last went the road in 2018 for her massive Reputation Stadium Tour , which saw Swift accompanied by the likes of Charli XCX and Camila Cabello across the United States, the United Kingdom, along with Australia, New Zealand, and Japan. The tour was the highest-grossing music tour by a female artist that year.

Since her last tour, Swift has released four albums and two re-releases: Lover , Folklore , Evermore , Midnights , and Taylor’s Version editions of Fearless and Red with additional songs. In total, she’s dropped 90 tracks of new material, not including collaborations with the likes of Haim and Big Red Machine.

Fans have long wondered what music she’ll be performing on the road, with some theorizing that she’d host a residency in Las Vegas or a music festival where she’d perform different “eras” on different nights.

Along with packing her setlist with songs from Reputation in 2018, she surprised each city with an acoustic rendition of fan favorites like “Red,” “Holy Ground,” and “Wildest Dreams.” At select shows, she also brought out special guests. Shawn Mendes, Selena Gomez, Hayley Kiyoko, and Maren Morris were among the artists to be brought out by Swift.

The stadium tour was accompanied by a concert film released on New Year’s Eve that year.

She previously took her 1989 album on the road for 85 dates, where she was accompanied by the likes of Mendes, James Bay, Vance Joy, and Haim. Before then was The Red Tour in 2013 and 2014, and her Speak Now World Tour from 2011 to 2012.

Most Romantic Places in Europe

London is one of the most romantic cities in Europe, indeed the world. It’s a vast city with as much to see as many countries and plenty of romantic things to do.

A great place to start is with a walk along the Thames Path. The short walk between Lambeth Bridge, opposite the Houses of Parliament, and Westminster Bridge. It’s only a short distance further to the London Eye, which has superb views over the city, or continue to Waterloo Bridge, where the winter sunsets are sensational. A little further along the Thames Path, the Oxo Tower Bar, has an outstanding view across the river to St Paul’s Cathedral.

A bridge stretches over a river at sunset.

The suburb of Chelsea is another lovely romantic London spot. The busy King’s Road has many cafes where one can watch the world go by, and some gorgeous streets with brightly painted houses a short walk away. Cheyne Walk is one of the most beautiful streets in London, where everyone from King Henry VIII to three of the Rolling Stones has lived.

The houses are among the grandest in London , and full of blue plaques commemorating the famous names who resided there. The Albert Bridge, across the street from there, is the most beautiful in London. It looks at its best at night, with its twinkling lights reflected in the Thames.

It’s also worth planning a London afternoon tea in advance – some of the best hotels require reservations. The likes of the Savoy, the Ritz and Claridge’s put on an amazing spread with finger sandwiches and cakes. It’s a classic London tradition, not to be missed.

Kyiv (or Kiev as the direct transliteration from Russian) is the capital city of Ukraine, a large country in Eastern Europe.   The city is small enough to walk around in a few days and is full of history.  The river Dnieper runs through the centre of the city which is downstream from Chernobyl and the abandoned city of Pripyat. 

The whole city is energized and developing and has a modern vibe with a hint to its past with romantic corners and beautiful architecture.

One of the best ways to explore the city is to take the funicular railway from the main area of the city to St Michael’s Golden-Domed Monastery.  This lives up to its name with golden domes against a vivid blue building.  In the small park between the railway and the monastery you will find red squirrels racing around and looking for attention, a good place to pause before setting off.

It is just a short walk to the beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Site of  St Sophia’s Cathedral with its green and golden domes and the nearby vivid green and dominating St Andrew’s Church.  From the church grounds, there are panoramic views across the whole city allowing you to see how many domed churches there are across the skyline.

From St Andrews Church, Vozdvyzhens’ka Street is a gentle wander down a cobbled street with cafes and restaurants and small street vendors.  A perfect place to spend time with the one you love. 

Hotel Staro is a decadent location to stay in the quieter end of the city.  It is surrounded by small galleries and little cafes.  The rooms are ornate with high ceilings and heavy furniture and the breakfasts are good.

This city can be visited year-round although spring is the best.  The winters are cold and harsh and the summers can be very warm.

When you want to choose a destination for a romantic escape with your better half, Romania is not the first country you think of. But the truth is that Romania has medieval cities that seem excellent sceneries for a romantic getaway. And one of these cities is Sibiu.

Located at the border of Transylvania, in the heart of Romania, the city is 300 kilometers away from Bucharest. The charm of Sibiu is given by its cobblestone streets, colorful, old buildings and intimate caffes. If you plan a romantic dinner, you can choose one of the modern restaurants with delicious International and Romanian dishes.  And for a romantic stay, try The Council hotel.

A small brick road with an arch over the center of it and brick buildings on either side of it.

On a long walk in the city centre you will discover interesting places to visit. One of the most romantic spots in Sibiu is the Stairs passage. Part of the old fortification system of the city, the Stairs passage has an amazing glow during sunset, especially in summer. After walking through this passage and crossing the Huet piazza, another place for couples will be revealed in front of you: Liars’ Bridge. This important attraction in Sibiu took its name from the lovers that swear eternal love on it. Many of these vows are broken and the bridge became a symbol of them.

Sibiu has other  interesting attractions  for couples and not only, so next time when you choose your romantic place, don’t forget about it!

Lisbon seems as though it was designed to be one of the most romantic cities in Europe and perhaps one of the top honeymoon destinations as well. 

Built on seven hills, Lisbon is a city of dreamy miradouros or viewpoints.  Start with the panoramic view from the top of the Elevador de Santa Justa, the city’s wrought-iron iron vertical street lift.  Stroll up to the hilltop Miradouro de Santa Luzia for a picnic under a bougainvillea-draped trellis overlooking the Tagus River and Alfama, Lisbon’s oldest neighborhood.

Aerial view of a small city at night with a few of the buildings lit from below.

From there, wander hand-in-hand through the twisting, cobblestone streets as you spot colorful tiles and street art.  Above Alfama, on the highest hill in the city, visit São Jorge Castle and savour a sunset glass of wine from the mobile kiosks known as “Wine with a View”. 

Snuggle up at the boutique hotel, the Memmo Alfama, which has cozy rooms facing the river and a rooftop terrace with city views that will make you melt.  Lisbon is a year-round destination, but the best time of year to enjoy that terrace is spring or fall to avoid the summer heat and festival crowds.

Nestled along the turquoise banks of Italy’s soaring Amalfi Coast, it’s no wonder Positano is a hot spot for   romantic interludes   and honeymooners. In fact, it’s hard not to get caught up in a moment, as Mediterranean breezes tickle your sun-kissed skin and the  limoncello  sweetens your lips. It’s one of the most romantic European destinations for couples.

Each turn of a leisurely stroll through this enchanting town carved into the mountainside showcases breathtaking views of the Tyrrhenian Sea. Shops featuring the handiwork of local artisans dot the narrow descent; you’ll find chic linen beach dresses, handmade leather sandals, colorful pottery, and more.

A small cliffside town right on the edge of bright blue water.

Along the way, watch for the iconic dome of The Church of Santa Maria Assunta, aglow with multi-colored majolica tiles.

At the base of Positano, two black-pebble beaches hug the shore. The first and more popular beach is  Grande Spiaggia di Positano.  It welcomes guests with lounge chairs, boutiques, and waterfront restaurants perfect for refreshing afternoon drinks. Here, you can also charter a private boat tour to the island of Capri.

Or instead slip away to the secluded  Spiaggia di Fornillo . Simply pass through the romantic promenade to escape the crowds.

For an elegant overnight, consider booking the suite at Hotel Villa Gabrisa. Once an ancient villa in the historic center of Positano, this charming hotel offers fine dining, a wine bar and cafe, plus a complimentary continental breakfast with your reservation. The spacious suite affords luxury accommodations and a large terrace with a sea view—the perfect setting for a secluded tryst with room service.

Seville is located in the southern region of Andalusia in Spain and is the perfect all year round destination for a romantic break with that someone special. Seville is a compact and relaxed riverside city with beautiful Moorish architecture, UNESCO heritage sites, excellent wining and dining and many gorgeous landscaped parks.

There are so many romantic  things to do in Seville  – start off your day by taking a stroll through the labyrinth of charming narrow streets and alleys of the  El Barrio de Santa Cruz  neighbourhood. You’ll discover many intimate squares, huge orange trees and some of Seville’s most gorgeous buildings. 

A small river cutting through a city with a large palace like building to the right.

Next head over to  Plaza de España  to admire the exquisite tile work and grand architecture, then hire a rowboat for a romantic ride around the square. Plaza de España is also beautifully lit up at night if you want to return for a romantic midnight stroll. 

End your perfect day with a cosy and romantic candlelit dinner at one of Seville’s many  historic tapas bars  for a glass of Spanish wine and some fresh and delicious seafood. Follow up dinner with an intimate traditional  flamenco show  at either Casa del Flamenco or Casa de la Memoria and if you still have energy afterwards, head to  Hotel Doña Maria‘s rooftop bar  for a cocktail with one with the best views of the city and the Cathedral lit up at night.

Your first glimpse of the turreted fortress of Fisherman’s Bastian high on the hill on the Buda side of the city will have you feeling like you have walked into a fairy tale. You will immediately know you have chosen the right spot for your romantic vacation.

One of the most romantic things to do in Budapest is to take a sunset stroll along the Danube, as the city changes from day to night, and the lights on the stunning Parliament building come on. Once you have snapped a romantic sunset selfie head to one of the city’s rooftop bars to drink in more of the view or take a river dinner cruise, the lights never get old.

A large, stone, castle like building with a small plaza in the middle.

When hunger strikes, Budapest is full of quirky and quality restaurants. One we loved was KönyvBár (Bookbar in English) which serves a changing menu inspired by books. To date they have covered everything from Fifty Shades to Harry Potter! The menu changes every two weeks so check and see if this week’s meal suits you.  There are also a bunch of affordable Michelin star restaurants if you want to impress.

Finally, you really should pay a visit to one of the city’s thermal baths we recommend Gellért the pretty Art Nouveau designed complex.  Budapest’s thermal pools are among the most popular in the world and as well as being relaxing the minerals contained in the water are said to provide lots of health benefits. Gellért offer indoor and outdoor mixed bath areas and couple massages too

Looking for a fun, perhaps unexpected city break? One of the most romantic cities in Europe is definitely the capital of Armenia, Yerevan. The ancient city is 2802 years old and is known as “the pink city” because it is mostly built from pink volcanic stone called tuff. This illuminating tuff gives Yerevan a magical and romantic feeling from above or during certain hours of the day.

In addition to the pink tuff, Yerevan has cozy and sometimes hidden side cafes where couples can enjoy their time with each other.

In Armenia’s capital, there is even a park dedicated to couples called ‘Lovers Park’.  You can head there and enjoy your time with your significant other in a beautiful and romantic environment surrounded by an artificial waterfall alongside a charming canal and several sculptures.

Other places that are romantic in Yerevan are the Cascades stairway, a large limestone construction that goes up an incline and the best place for couples to sit and gaze over the city at dusk.  At the Cascades, you’ll find several cafes and romantic restaurants that locals love to get dressed up and enjoy in the evenings.

If you’re wanting to get out of the city and experience some of the lovely nature in Armenia, there are many wonderful day trips from Yerevan , such as Garni Temple or Lake Sevan, that will offer a new romantic setting

The Azores are easily one of the most romantic places to visit in Europe.  The archipelago of nine islands sits in the middle of the Atlantic and is owned by Portugal, but they retain their rustic charm and beauty and are like no other place in Europe.

One of the main things that make the Azores the perfect romantic destination is that Azorean nature is some of the most beautiful on the planet.  Between the natural hot springs and Jurassic ferns, a person can’t help but feel in love with their surroundings and the person that they travel to the islands with.

A small walking path leading up a lush, green garden with pink and white flowers.

The Azores are known for being home to volcanoes, interesting cuisine like cozido das Furnas, and some of the world’s best whale watching.  There are many tours in the Azores but some of the most popular are scuba diving, visiting the different sides of Sao Miguel, or going whale watching.  

The best place to start your romantic journey through the Azores is in Sao Miguel… but be sure to explore the other islands like Pico and Terceira while you’re there.  There are ferries connecting the islands during the high-season and inter-island flights at other times of the year. The Azores are destined to become one of Europe’s hottest destinations and you will see everyone there from honeymooners to solo travelers.

Known as the Eternal City and positively bursting with everything from world-famous monuments to art museums to delightful cobblestone lanes perfect for wandering down hand-in-hand, there’s no doubt that Rome is one of the most romantic cities in Europe .

While exploring Rome with your beloved, be sure to make time for classics like touring the Colosseum, visiting the Vatican Museums (including the phenomenal Sistine Chapel), admiring the Pantheon and munching on gelato in Piazza Navona–but to really up the romance, ditch the crowds and explore the uncrowded side of Rome as well.

Small museums like the Palazzo Doria Pamphilj, the Galleria Spada, and the Villa Farnesina may not have the fame of, say, the Borghese Gallery–but the chance to avoid the crowds and linger among gorgeous art together without having to hurry on makes them incredibly romantic.

Crowds of people walking around a viewpoint looking out over a European city.

For a chance to steal a smooch while admiring the best views of Rome, consider heading to the top of the dome at St. Peter’s Basilica, the top of the Altar of the Fatherland, or the top of the Castel Sant’Angelo.

Rome is an incredibly romantic European city year-round, but you’ll likely enjoy your trip more if you avoid the hot, sticky summer months of July and August (though if you do make it to Rome then, know that there are plenty of beautiful beaches that make great day trips from Rome !). 

If you’d like to have the Eternal City all to yourself, consider a winter trip–Rome boasts mild temperatures and a delightfully uncrowded environment during winter, making it an excellent destination for a Valentine’s Day getaway!

As you wander the banks of the Seine and sip a glass of wine in a cozy café, the City of Lights will weave its spell over the two of you in no time.

Skip long lines at the Louvre for a more intimate experience sighing over Monet’s famous water lilies at the beloved Orangerie or tapestries at the Cluny Museum instead. Or gaze up at Rodin’s famous statue, The Thinker, in the lovely gardens of the Rodin Museum.

Looking for more ideas? Share a picnic just for two in one of the city’s dozens of verdant parks or a cafe au lait and pastry at Le Grenier á Pain. There are so many things to do in Paris . For a memorable stay that won’t break the bank, stay at Hotel Abbatial Saint Germain. It’s conveniently located in the Latin Quarter, just minutes from Ile de la Cité.

St. Petersburg

Submitted by Yulia Dyukova, That’s What She Had

The cultural capital of Russia as its called by the locals, Saint Petersburg, is a less obvious destination when it comes to romantic vacations in Europe. And undeservedly so. With its hundreds of narrow canals, heavily decorated bridges, and pre-revolution era palaces, Saint Petersburg will charm you instantly.

A large water feature with various gold statues throughout it in front of a large palace.

Take a stroll down Nevsky prospect and marvel at beautiful architecture. A word of warning, sometimes what you think must be a palace is actually a supermarket (looking at you, Eliseevsky store). Spend some time on the water: take a boat tour of Neva River and most popular canals. Visit the gorgeous Orthodox churches of which there are over seventy in the city. But do make a special stop at the Church of the Savior on Spilled Blood that you’ve probably seen a thousand times on pictures. It is even more awe-inspiring in real life.

At night, trying some great Russian food for dinner is a must. Instead of going to touristy canteens that feature balalaikas, shapka-ushanka, and vodka bottles as decorations, head to one of the modern Russian restaurants, like Banschiki. Romantic vibes and mind-blowing food with creative twists are guaranteed.

Lastly, if you are traveling to Saint Petersburg during summer months (which you should), stay up till late to experience the famous “white nights” and see the bridges open.

With its blessed climate, charming hilltop villages,  stunning coastal towns  and penchant for lingering over long lunches, Provence is a romantic destination like no other. It’s no wonder why many couples choose the South of France to get wed, honeymoon, or even plan a surprise proposal.

A small city on a hill that is filled with white buildings and houses.

Days can be spent simply enjoying the surroundings, sipping on the region’s renowned  rosé , or swimming at one of the most idyllic beaches you’ve ever laid eyes on. More active couples will enjoy the walking trails through the  calanques  or climbing up Cezanne’s beloved Mont  Sainte – Victoire . Or hop on your bike and discover the winding roads connecting the bucolic villages of the  Luberon . Culture aficionados will be in their element browsing the museums and galleries in the ancient cities of  Aix -en-Provence or Avignon.

And for an authentic slice of Mediterranean life, head straight to  Marseille .

For balmy days and cool nights, visit in Spring and enjoy the blossoming landscapes and uncrowded streets. And for a romantic stay in an idyllic setting book a room at La  Bastide   de   Gordes.

Moscow, Russia doesn’t always bring to mind images of “romance.” However, don’t let the stereotypes fool you – Moscow can be an especially romantic destination for adventurous couples!

While the weather is more comfortable during the summer months in Moscow, visiting Moscow in winter (especially during the Christmas holidays) is absolutely magical and looks as though the city were plucked straight from a fairytale. There are beautiful Christmas lights and markets that are perfect for grabbing a mulled wine or hot chocolate and walking through hand in hand with your partner. (The most famous market is held right in Red Square.)

Gold colored building with a large Christmas tree out front and various Christmas decorations around it.

Need to warm up after a day of enjoying the markets? Head to a Russian Banya and book a private couples room. (Banya Zhivitsa is especially couple’s friendly.) You and your partner can enjoy couples soap massages and the traditional Russian banya experience together. (A banya is similar to a sauna.)

Winter is also a wonderful time of year to see a ballet performed at the famous Bolshoi Theatre – especially if you are lucky enough to get tickets to a performance of The Nutcracker. Be sure to have a romantic dinner at Turandot or Beluga restaurants before you head to your performance.

Where to stay in Moscow: One of the most historic and glamorous hotels in Moscow is the Metropol. (This hotel is also the setting for the best-selling novel “A Gentleman in Moscow.”) Another great option is the Four Seasons Hotel located right on Red Square with some of the most luxurious and romantic hotel bathrooms in the city.

Isle of Skye Scotland

Submitted by Nabiha Khan , Verses By a Voyager

Scotland is extremely captivating and it’s also one of the amazingly beautiful areas in the country is the Isle of Skye. This part of the highlands is very romantic, too. Its green, it has huge mountains, mesmerizing lakes and historical castles beautifully sitting near the lochs.

Large, rocky formations on the side of a grassy hill with dark grey clouds above.

The Isle of Skye presents a complete vibe of a super romantic place that takes you away from the hustle-bustle of everyday life. It’s serene and picturesque and let you have your alone time away from everything. Moreover, Isle of Skye hosts the most romantic place in the UK, the Fairy Pools. There are straight from a storybook and takes to the lands of fairytales. There are many Hollywood as well as Bollywood movies shot in Isle in Skye and that depicts how romantic this place is to form a perfect backdrop for a romantic movie.

The Isle of Skye offers the perfect tranquillity one craves for a romantic, laid-back holiday. As Scotland is very cold, summer is the best time to visit Isle of Skye.

County Kerry, Ireland

Submitted by Dan Bagby , Honeymoon Always

The majestic Irish landscapes, remarkable rich history, charming tradition, and welcoming people make Ireland a wonderful destination for couples looking for romance.  One region to add to the list of romantic destinations, in particular, is County   Kerry:  full of beautiful sites and natural beauty.

A stone castle in the distance with a small path and bridge leading towards it.

Base your stay at Ballyseed Castle Hotel where you will find elegant accommodations, fine dining and 30 acres of private gardens and woodland.  During the days, take a trip to the small town of Dingle for great restaurants and Murphy’s Ice Cream.  Loop around the Dingle Penninsula on the Slea Head Drive, making stops along the way at the various ancient monuments including the beehive huts and stone churches, views of Skellig Michael (where scenes were filled for the most recent Star Wars films) and the beautiful Inch beach.

Killarney National Park with 26,00 acres of woodland, mountains, lakes and the Muckross House where Queen Victoria visited is also worth a visit as well as the Ring of  Kerry  with spectacular sights and quirkiest towns and villages.

Most romantic places in Europe you need to visit with your loved one

Louvre Paris, France

Paris – The Classic Romantic Getaway in Europe

There is no better city to start this list with than the City of Love . 

Lit by a thousand lights, flanked by the gorgeous Eiffel Tower, Paris is where the love of Heloise and Abelard blossomed.

This is the city where Alice B Toklas found love in Gertrude Stein .

Several centuries later, the air of love can still be felt in the French capital – in its picnic spots, boutique cafés, secret gardens , chocolates, the Palace of Versailles – everywhere.

It is no surprise why Paris is dubbed as the most romantic European city by many. A casual, slow-paced ramble on its cobbled streets, past the Art Nouveau edifices, evokes feelings that we read about in the novels. 

It’s also one of the prettiest cities in Europe.

Breathe in l’amour sans fin at The Wall of Love . Cruise along the Seine at sunset , stroll Rue des Barres , catch a movie at Le Champo , and steal a kiss at Pont des Arts !

There’s something romantic to do at every step in Paris. Sundry acts like walking hand-in-hand also feel more beautiful.

View of the Alfama district in Lisbon

Lisbon – A Youthful City to Recapture the Romance

The Portuguese capital is Instagrammable and picture-perfect.

There is a blend of vintage, soft-pastel aesthetic, and modern vibe here.

From the puppy love blooming in its narrow streets to the newlyweds cruising at the sunset, Lisbon teems with all kinds of romance.

The city may lack the luster of the Eiffel Tower, but it is full of relaxing vibes that call for sweet picnic trips , hand-in-hand strolls in the Alfama neighborhood , and photogenic dates at the unlikely Belem Monastery .

The ideal romantic European holidays in Lisbon should always include the picturesque ride in the Bica Funicular . The vintage tram moves through neighborhoods offering sights of petite shops, effervescent Rua da Bica, and vantage point of Miradouro de Santa Catarina.

If you are up for a nerdy-geeky romantic date, never miss Ler Devagar Bookstore , the collectionist’s paradise.

Proposals seldom get more sumptuous than in the ornate setting of Casa do Alentejo .

If you are looking for a complete Lisbon itinerary, click here. Don’t travel to Lisbon without reading our best Lisbon travel tips and our full guide on using public transportation in Lisbon.

With fewer crowds, lower prices, and winter temperatures between 12°C to 20°C ii is also a great place to enjoy the winter sun in Europe. 

Venice Italy

Venice – Queen of the Adriatic and Love

With its lovely canal ways and cobblestone streets, Venice makes a magical destination for romantic European breaks.

The romance here is almost of artistic quality.

Couples can celebrate their love by listening to emotion-evoking operas or watching spellbinding ballets . The fun dates here can be full of cuddlesome rides on a Gondola .

Perhaps, the most classic Venice romance can be experienced on its Vaporetto ride . On this boat bus, couples can explore the untainted nearby islands and street-lining baroque palaces.

Couples out for a quiet and non-touristy date will find their haven at the city’s Dorsoduro district .

The area is famous for its market, museums, and art galleries. However, nothing beats moseying on the Rialto Bridge and Alberoni beach at night , drinking in the scenic views.

Prague, Czech Republic

Prague – All About the Fairy-Tale Love Story

This city may be one of the best romantic places in Europe. It is also one of the cheapest places to travel to in Europe.  

Lovers from across the world come to Prague to cherish their love and lock it for life at the city’s Charles Bridge .

Add to this the folklore charm of its cobbled streets, Gothic buildings, and medieval architecture. Walking the winding alleys of Prague is like walking a sweet romantic legend from a bygone era.

Experience the purest form of love at Vyšehrad Castle , where poets are buried with beautiful poems engraved on their tombstones. Enjoy a breezy date on a sunset Vltava river cruise or recapture the romance by riding a horse-drawn carriage in the Old Town .

If you are inspired by movies like Letters to Juliet, you could chase a serene date at the verdant vineyards of Viniční altán . Add a touch of class to this romantic European holiday by attending an opera at Prague National Theatre .

Schönbrunn Palace, Vienna, Austria

Vienna – All for Musical Romance Since Centuries

The capital of Austria boasts oodles of places, perfect for a romantic date. It has everything from streets that ooze old-school charm to museums, palace gardens, amorous art paintings, candle-light dinners, and operas.

What’s more? A walk through the city is serenaded by the classic pieces of Brahms, Beethoven, and Mozart. Honeymooners can make special memories at the chandelier-lit coffee houses , live royal fantasies at storybook Habsburg Palace , and waltz the night away along the Danube.

Those with a knack for the traditional romance can take the horse carriage sightseeing tour and later watch the sunset on a boat cruising the river.

In a nutshell, when it comes to sparking love, Vienna is undoubtedly one of the most romantic places in Europe.

Santorini Greece

Santorini – Modern Lover’s Romantic Paradise

Greece’s Santorini is a private bolthole for an intimate whirl. The white-washed island is often brimming with couples. It may be one of the most popular honeymoon destinations in Europe.

When it comes to romance, Santorini stands out. What makes it a unique romantic place is the lack of archaic charm seen in other European cities. Unlike Paris and Prague, Santorini is more of a dreamy, seaside getaway with classic Mediterranean charm .

Come here to stay in a cozy, cliff-hugging resort , enjoy dinner on a patio overlooking the Caldera , stroll through streets lined with blue-domed buildings , and watch the sunset at Oia .

When thinking of chasing romance in Santorini, think of relaxing in a pool with sprawling views of the ocean and sunbathing on black sand beaches . Enjoy the simple pleasures of picking matching stones on the coastline. You can spend breezy evenings riding on a scooter , relishing local wine , or sampling Greek cuisine together .

The amount of classic romantic shots that a couple can take in Santorini is abounding. If you were thinking engagement, proposal, or even pre-wedding shoot, then it doesn’t get better than this Greek island.

Budapest Parliament

Budapest – Bolthole for Laid-Back Lovers

Looking to spend a relaxed romantic trip to Europe? Budapest fits your bill perfectly.

Cut in half, Buda and Pest, by the Danube river, the city itself is a marriage of two contrasts. Connecting these two territories are strings of iconic bridges, including the famous love lock bridge , which now caters as a lovely spot for lovers to seal their bond.

The landscape of Budapest looks tailor-made for romance. Tracing the coast are charming promenades and dotting its postcard-perfect districts are romantic diners such as Halászbástya Restaurant .

Much like Lisbon, Budapest also has a vintage funicular that rides you to its eponymous Budapest Castle that sits on a hilltop. Remember to keep your camera fully charged and free of space. The views of the castle are just spectacular, especially after sundown, when several warm lights turn it into a royal paradise.

Add to this the thermal baths in the city, the palatial Metropolitan Ervin Szabo Library , the Hungarian State Opera House , and architecture-soaked squares .

Bruges by night, Belgium

Bruges – Romantic Melting Pot for All Things European

Bruges ( Brugge called by the locals ) is an idyllic concoction of Belgian chocolate, Venice-like canals, Copenhagen’s Painted Ladies, and England’s olde-worlde charm. This medieval city is like a mini-Europe in itself.

But there’s a lot more to this West Flanders capital, which makes it one of the most romantic fairytale European cities.

Romance is felt most at the Lake of Love crowned by the Lover’s Bridge . Both tell the doomed love story of Minna, a girl who died in the arms of her lover.  The scenery at the lake is like a romantic novel that writes itself. Nothing in Brugge is as romantic as walking on the bridge. Also, the lake is home to several swans, the ultimate symbol of love, whom you can feed.

Other romantic things to do in Brugge include taking a carriage ride through the city – the ultimate Disney style! Forget about sharing a drink with two straws and share a hot chocolate . As the sunset approaches, catch a canal cruise ride .

Hold hands as you mosey up the Belfry and walk the surrounding cobble paths.

The river canal in Ljubljana

Ljubljana – The City Named “The Beloved”

Slovenia’s capital is every bit as picturesque as you’d expect it to be. With orange-roofed houses divided by a river canal and a mountainous landscape, it is one of the most romantic cities in Europe.

The name of the city itself translates to the beloved . Now isn’t that beautiful? Apart from Paris, Ljubljana is also affectionately called the City of Love .

Not only will you fall in love with the city, but you will also fall for your loved one all over again. 

There’s a lot a couple can do in this beautiful capital, starting with walking the quiet streets early in the morning. Lovers can also spend time admiring the architecture , riding up to the vantage Ljubljana Castle in a funicular , and then watch the sunset .

Call it a day at a sidewalk café lining the riverfront. Sample delicious local dishes while enjoying the lit river. Unleash your childish side together and go on a scavenger hunt for the city’s famous dragon sculptures. You can rent bikes and tour the city like two buoyant teens newly fallen in love.

However, what truly sets Ljubljana apart from the rest is its hip atmosphere . Despite the old, medieval gems, the city is always shaking its leg on concert nights .

When you are planning your trip, look into the website of the Ljubljana Tourism Board to check the event calendar. It’s also a great winter destination.

The Colosseum in Rome

Rome – The Eternal City; Rome-antic Caput Mundi

If any city could beat Paris in romance, it would be Rome. That’s right! The Italian capital might be the most romantic European city. Plus, it makes a convenient romantic gateway for couples who just cannot decide which one is best for them.

The history buff in the couple might pick Brugge, while the hedonist is thinking of Paris.

In Rome, you get everything – from fine architecture to river cruises – and also mouth-watering cuisine! Gourmets in love will want to travel to Rome mostly for its vibrant, world-famous food scene. Jetsetters would love it for the presence of Via Cola di Rienzo. The art geeks will want to head straight to Vatican City.

Take a stroll in the Villa Borghese Gardens, visit the Teatro dell ‘Opera di Roma, have a picnic In Aventine Hill, and share a candle-lit dinner at a rooftop restaurant!

There’s just so much to do in Rome when you are setting off for romantic European holidays.

Perhaps, the simplest gesture like tossing a coin together into Trevi Fountain and making a wish will be enough for an amorous spark.

When it comes to cherishing love, leave it on Europe to deliver an idyllic romantic vacation. Scattered across the entire continent are cities brimming with beautiful sites, artwork, intimate activities, and fun things to do for couples.

From riding a Disney carriage around medieval buildings to popping open a bottle of delicious wine together, European cities create an intimate whirl in various ways.

The beauty of the continent has always inspired love – in the hearts of honeymooners, writers’ novels, bards’ poems, or painters’ art – Europe’s romance abounds everywhere. It is in the grand palaces, baroque churches, ancient temples, and modern city squares too.

So, create your own love story as you explore the cities on your romantic European holidays. Let your heart take a sweet journey through the most romantic places in Europe’s history and legends.

Curl up in the warmth of the legacy left by the greatest lovers like Heloise and Abelard, and Minna and Stromberg.

Taylor Swift Announced Her 'Lover' Tour Dates & They're Not What You Expected

Ever since Taylor Swift blessed the world with her Lover album on Friday, Aug. 23, fans have been itching for her to release tour dates so they can experience songs from Lover live in person. Every song on the album is so good and fans wish they could hear all the songs in concert. They especially want to dance their hearts out to "Paper Rings," sing "Spelling is fun!" at the top of their lungs to "ME!," and cry to the romantic title track, "Lover." Well, guess what? Fans' dreams are coming true because Taylor Swift just announced some tour dates. Yay! Taylor Swift's Lover Fest tour is coming and fans are not prepared because it will be so different than any of her past tours in one big way.

Taylor Swift made the huge announcement on social media on Tuesday, Sept. 17 . The tour will begin with a European leg next summer on June 20 in Belgium before Swift travels to Germany, Norway, Denmark, Poland, France, Portugal, she'll make a stop in Brazil, and then hit the United States.

In an Instagram post announcing the tour, Swift revealed that she decided to make the tour dates in the summer because that's what her album represents. She wrote, "For me, the Lover album is open fields and sunsets and SUMMER. I want to celebrate the album and perform it live with you in a way that feels authentic to the music."

Swift also announced that for the first time in a long time, she will be playing festivals. She said, "I want to go to some places I haven’t been, and play festivals for the first time in ages... and where we didn’t have festivals, we made some. Introducing, Lover Fest East and West. Details and additional dates coming soon! TaylorSwift.com." You can see Swift's full post below.

View on Instagram

Swift's "Lover Fest West" and "Lover Fest East" dates are her only U.S. tour dates in 2020 (it's unclear if she'll add more, but if she doesn't, fans may have to fight tooth and nail for tickets considering Swift usually tours pretty heavily in the U.S.).

On July 25 and 26, she will perform at SoFi Stadium in Los Angeles, California, and then on July 31 and Aug. 1, Swift will perform at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts. According to Billboard , Swift will make history as " the first woman in history to open an NFL stadium " when she takes the stage at SoFi Stadium on July 25. You can check the full list of tour dates below.

June 20 -- Werchter, Belgium @ Werchter Boutique

June 24 -- Berlin, Germany @ The Waldbühne

June 26 -- Oslo, Norway @ Oslo Sommertid

July 1 -- Roskilde, Denmark @ Roskilde Festival

July 3 -- Gdynia, Poland @ Open'er Festival

July 5 -- Nîmes, France @ Festival de Nîmes

July 9 -- Oeiras, Portugal @ NOS Alive

July 18 -- Sao Paulo, Brazil @ Allianz Parque

July 25 -- Los Angeles, CA @ SoFi Stadium

July 26 -- Los Angeles, CA @ SoFi Stadium

July 31-- Foxborough, MA @ Gillette Stadium

Aug. 1 -- Foxborough, MA @ Gillette Stadium

In case you don't see your city or country in the list of tour dates, don't worry, Swift did say that "additional dates" would be "coming soon," so just be patient. I'm sure Swift will announce more dates in the coming weeks or months. The tour won't start until mid-2020, so you've got plenty of time to prepare to see Swift in concert.

The tickets will go on sale to the general public on Oct. 14. Swifties who are Taylor Swift Tix Verified Fans have a chance to RSVP for Preferred Presale Access starting now.

I'm sure fans are already counting down the days to when Taylor Swift makes a stop in their city on the Lover Fest tour. This tour is going to be so epic and I'm really curious to find out what Taylor Swift has planned for her tour this time around. For her Reputation tour, Swift literally had a giant snake as a prop, so I'm preparing myself for anything.

Wondering about the most romantic cities in Europe?

Love, sweet love! Romance is a global pursuit, but there’s something extra special about it in Europe, where romantic cobbled streets, epic landscapes, and dreamy canals make perfect backdrops for all kinds of love stories.

If love is in the air for you and you’re ready for a sweet escape, consider our list of the most romantic cities in Europe.

Most Romantic Cities in Europe

Paris, france.

Empty green space in front of the Eiffel Tower in Paris during the day.

Naturally, we kick things off with an icon of romance, the city of love itself: Paris ! There’s no place more perfect for taking a lovers’ stroll along tucked-away cobbled streets, whispering sweet nothings into each others’ ears.

Romance can take many forms here . You can go a lovely, more traditional route with a box of Ladurée macarons , a wine and cheese picnic at Champs de Mars , followed by a stroll through Amelie’s Montmartre …or maybe you’d prefer to get a little quirky?

Try picking up a bag of bariolés from Les Bariolés de Maud , then wandering through part of the La Petite Ceinture abandoned railway, and wind things up by shopping for cool gifts to exchange at the Porte de Vanves flea market .

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Bikes along the canal as the sun sets in Amsterdam.

Picturesque canals and bridges, ornate 17th-century homes, and a renowned cultural landscape earn Amsterdam what may seem like a surprising entry onto this list of European romantic getaways.

But if you avoid the heart of the crowded central area and instead venture out a bit, you’ll find a net of alleyways begging to be explored hand-in-hand and a throng of amazing art museums to get lost in.

Going further out to gorgeous historic areas like Zaanse Schans and Edam offer perfect opportunities for couples to immortalize their loved-up getaway with truly memorable photos.

And, of course, you can and should still book an iconic and romantic Amsterdam canal boat cruise for two! Then enjoy an evening meal at Michelin-starred Bougainville , recently named Best Restaurant in the World by TripAdvisor.

Barcelona, Spain

View of the ocean from Park Guell in Barcelona.

Barcelona is a beating Catalonian heart perfect for romance lovers. Start your morning with pan tumaca and milky coffee for two before heading out to enjoy a day in beautiful Parc Guell .

And you must spend time trading kisses as the city unfolds beneath your feet with a Port Vell aerial tram ride . 

In the evening, walk through Barcelona’s prettiest neighborhood, El Born , and grab a low-key dinner at one of the many restaurants nestled into the winding streets.

Rome, Italy

Trevi Fountain during the day in Rome.

Most romantic cities in Europe? Romance in Rome should be a given in that regard–it’s right there in the name! Adventurous lovers should rent a Vespa and spend an afternoon scooting through the streets together.

In the summertime, take in a dreamy evening open-air performance of the Opera di Roma at the historic Caracalla Baths . 

For dinner, wander well outside of the tourist areas and find an out-of-the-way treasure of a pasta restaurant with a table for two, and of course, share gelato for dessert. 

One thing you can’t forget to do is to toss coins into the Trevi Fountain together before you leave–so you can come back and do it all again one day!

Füssen, Germany

Neuschwanstein Castle in Fussen under a grey sky.

The charming Bavarian town of Füssen is the last destination on the southern end of Germany’s Romantic Road , so it is obviously one of the best romantic getaways in Europe! 

For the ultimate in cozy Alpine romance, book a room at one of the accommodations in Füssen’s lovely Old Town –not only will you be in walking distance of all of the best sights and restaurants in the city, you could wake up each morning to a view straight out of an illuminated manuscript.

Then, if you rent a car, Schloss Neuschwanstein –the castle on a cloud that inspired Disneyland’s Sleeping Beauty Castle–is a short drive from Füssen, and a visit there makes for a fairy-tale afternoon. 

Ljubljana, Slovenia

Ljubljana near the water under a blue sky.

Speaking of fairy tales, you’ll certainly feel as though you’ve fallen into one in riverside Ljubljana. Slovenia’s capital is a spectacularly charming city with a historical center and a modern heart.

Known for lush, expansive green spaces, planning European romantic getaways here should literally be a walk in the park!

Ljubljana is also known for beekeeping and honey production , so make sure to grab a jar of the golden sweet treat from a local business to enjoy during romantic breakfasts.

And a fun, unusual couples activity is available in the form of visiting some of the city’s artisans and taking a class with them in anything from printing or weaving to precious metalsmithing. 

Florence, Italy

Arno River going through Florence. Featuring a city skyline.

Rome may argue that romance originated deep in its DNA, but as one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, lovely Tuscan Florence has been making a serious case for its own romantic potential for a long time now, and between the scenery, the culture, and the food, well…there’s excellent reason to hear the Florentines out on this.

For starters, nowhere else in Italy will you find wine windows . Originating during the somewhat less romantic age of the Florentine plague in 1634, wine windows have come to enjoy new life in the 21st century.

There aren’t many that are actually operational, but when you find one on your romantic evening strolls, definitely order a couple of glasses of wine to enjoy al fresco . 

For a sweet couples’ dinner, allow us to suggest the humble panini. Why? Because you can often eat a panino with one hand and hold your partner’s with the other, of course!

Popular TikToker Kacie Rose has several recommendations for great panini in Florence , with her favorite, the family-owned Pino’s, topping the list. 

Vienna, Austria

View from the top of a church with a mosaic roof in Vienna.

If music is the language of love, then with its prodigious classical music pedigree, Vienna is surely a worthy home to the sentiment and one of the most romantic cities in Europe. 

A simple walk through the streets of the city can lead couples past a number of buskers serenading them with Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, and more.

And, of course, music-loving pairs must take in a concert at the beautiful Musikverein –Vienna is home to one of the finest orchestras and opera companies, after all.

But perhaps music is not your be-all, end-all? No problem. Quintessentially romantic options include booking a horse-drawn fiaker ride through the city, visiting the Belvedere Palace’s epic collection of artworks, including Klimt’s The Kiss , or taking a Viennese waltz class together! 

And, of course, to cap off any sweet evening, it’s only right to share a slice of the Hotel Sacher’s iconic torte .

Venice, Italy

People riding in gondolas in Vienna.

There’s Rome, there’s Florence… but there is perhaps no other Italian city more actually synonymous with romance than Venice, the city of canals–this may be one of the best European destinations for couples.

Stay at the beautiful and perfectly central Oltre il Giardino hotel , once home to Alma Mahler, widow of composer Gustav Mahler.

Tucked into the end of a narrow street in the very heart of Venice, this hotel, with its lovely walled garden, is a beautiful retreat from the city. 

A private gondola ride is, of course, the expected thing for lovers to do, but you could go off the beaten path and walk around getting “lost” in the city’s narrow streets.

This gives you the opportunity to find hidden gems in terms of restaurants, gelateria, and shops.

Zurich, Switzerland

Zurich, Switzerland on a cloudy day.

Perhaps finance and business come to mind first when you think of Zurich, but if that’s all you think about, you’re shortchanging a gorgeous cultural capital city that’s surprisingly ripe for romance. 

Wine and cheese are of course romantic essentials, so why not enjoy a cozy fondue dinner for two at any one of Zurich’s excellent fondue restaurants ?

Alternatively, the outdoorsy sort of couple can rent bikes, pack a picnic, and cycle out to the shores of lovely Lake Geneva to while away a gorgeous afternoon. 

A surprisingly romantic idea is to ride the Polybahn funicular up to the Polyterasse . This terrace at a technological university doesn’t sound like a place for lovers at first, but it overlooks Old Town Zurich and has some of the most amazing views in the city.

Budapest, Hungary

Boats on the water going under a bridge in Budabest.

Gorgeous Budapest is another underrated city for lovers, one of the best romantic getaways in Europe–but with no shortage of scenic strolls, candlelit Danube restaurants, and thermal spas, it should be a can’t-miss on any couples’ agenda.

Despite its origins as a convent island housing a princess who refused to marry an earthly husband, Margaret Island –in the middle of the Danube, a quick ferry ride from the city–has become known as a lovers’ retreat, with picturesque ruins, beautiful gardens, and lovely little green niches perfect for stealing kisses in. 

Budapest is great for sybaritic indulgence as well–you can’t go wrong with booking a luxury couples massage at the beautiful Szechenyi Baths .

Follow it up with a gorgeous fine dining experience at the rose-festooned Vintage Garden restaurant and you’ve got the recipe for the most perfectly plush and sensual evening.

Galway, Ireland

Large church in Galway under a dark sky.

Ed Sheeran spun a musical tale about falling in love with a Galway girl, why not go a step further and fall in love with Galway itself?

While also falling further in love in Galway? Nothing could be better when you’re hunting for the most romantic cities in Europe!

Live out your best boho romantic dreams in the city’s Latin Quarter , poking your heads into unusual little stores, watching street performers, and grabbing meals in any number of cool little restaurants.

Or sway together to any number of live folk bands in the city’s pubs!

A ferry journey out to the moodily photogenic Aran Islands and the legendary Cliffs of Moher is also an absolute must.

Here, sweeping views and stunning landscapes form a backdrop that’s perfect for the most epic romantic moment of your life, straight out of Irish cinema.

London, England

Girl opening up a red phone booth in London with a smile.

It may be difficult at first to think of big, busy London as a setting for romance, but… hello? Some of the most notable British romantic comedies are set here! Love, actually, is all around in London , if you know where to look.

Obviously, colorful Notting Hill must be a stop on your love itinerary for a sweet photo opportunity at the famous Blue Door (and if you don’t know why this is a good idea, rent the movie Notting Hill first and spend a quiet romantic night watching it!), followed by a good browse through Portobello Market and drinks at one of the cozy bars in the neighborhood.

If you still want to romance your way through the city but need a nature break, you’ve got options there, too. The Little Venice neighborhood at the juncture of the Grand Union and Regent’s canals, is a wonderfully atmospheric and peaceful area to roam in.

Enjoy people-watching as the narrowboat traffic glides by, or even take a narrowboat cruise yourself!

For a more land-based nature love-in, picnic in Hampstead Heath and read the poetry of John Keats to each other–this area is where the poet lived and spent a couple of summers falling in love with Fanny Brawne.

Final Thoughts: Best Romantic Getaways in Europe

It’s said that love is the food of life and travel is the dessert. With luck, this guide to the most romantic cities in Europe will lead you to the perfect sweet treat of a travel experience. Bon Appetit!

From beautiful cities and cobbled streets to unforgettable sunsets, Europe has so many romantic destinations that are sure to please those in love and looking for love. You’ll find that searching for romantic places in Europe is a little overwhelming, simply because every place is just as pretty as the next!

Looking for romantic destinations to sweep your partner off their feet and create new romantic memories to last a lifetime? Here are the most romantic places in Europe to put on your bucket list.

But if you are serious about your romantic getaway and seeing the most romantic cities and places Europe offers, we did our research and narrowed down the list, so you don’t have to! Now all you have to do is take your pick and plan your trip to the most romantic destinations in Europe.

20 Most Romantic Destinations in Europe

Are you ready to explore the most romantic destinations in Europe for your honeymoon or a much-needed vacation? We’ve listed the best romantic cities in Europe so you can cut back on the overwhelm and start travel planning!

1. Paris, France

lover tour europe

We’re starting the list with Paris, France , not just because it is obviously one of the most romantic places in Europe but also because there’s more to this beautiful city than you could ever imagine.

First, you should see the Eiffel Tower with your other half, one of France’s most famous landmarks. Dubbed the City of Love, Paris is well-known for this towering structure that lovers put in the background while snapping a photo as they kiss.

People don’t call Paris one of the most romantic cities in Europe for no reason. For instance, having a romantic date near the Eiffel Tower is the perfect romantic getaway, especially if you’re planning for a proposal.

There’s also medieval architecture called the Conciergerie. This intriguing building used to be a courthouse and prison during the French Revolution, where Marie Antoinette was detained. Nowadays, the Conciergerie has become a famous museum in Paris.

Of course, your romantic trip in Paris should always include a stroll along the banks of the Seine River. Hand-in-hand with your other half, you’ll enjoy a quiet and peaceful time witnessing the sunset while whispering sweet nothings.

If you like, you can cruise on the river and enjoy the panoramic view of the city while sharing a delicious dinner. Speaking of dinner, Paris is known for its incredible food , so a romantic dinner at a Paris bistrot is a must!

Paris is also considered one of the most popular honeymoon destinations in Europe. Newlyweds visit the Love Lock Bridge to declare their love for each other and the iconic “I Love You” wall for a quick selfie.

If you feel like just hanging out without really doing anything, take a walk along the narrow streets, check out the shops, and sit down at a cafe to chat and people-watch.

2. Venice, Italy

Venice is a romantic city in Italy and a popular destination for lovers and honeymooners.

There is sheer joy in planning a romantic escape in Venice simply because there are plenty of romantic things to do in this charming city. It’s possibly the most romantic city in Europe, and maybe even the world.

Take an iconic gondola ride and cherish the stunning architecture around the Grand Canal. After hopping off the boat, take a walk on the cobbled streets, stopping here and there to check out authentic Italian products and try out Italian gelato in different flavors.

There are also plenty of places in Venice perfect for a chill and laid-back romantic escape with your loved one. You can take a short boat ride to the Island of Burano, a picturesque destination famous for lace making. Or head to the island of Murano, famous for its glass workshops.

Meanwhile, you could have a romantic dinner at Cantino de Spade, a trattoria believed to be where Casanova seduced his lovers. But if you’re looking for a romantic city break, consider going to the secluded Torcello island and enjoying a lazy lunch with your loved one while enjoying the mesmerizing views.

3. Provence

Is there anywhere more romantic than the south of France? Even though we already highlighted Nice, I couldn’t complete this list without adding the gorgeous region of France known for its rolling hills filled with lavender and grapes growing in abundance. Book a boutique hotel or a chateau in the countryside.

We spent our 18th anniversary in Provence and it was absolutely wonderful. We ate so much good food, explored so many beautiful villages, stayed up late listening to music in the town, and spent long days relaxing by the pool. We stayed in the charming town of Cotignac and it was perfect.

4. Scotland

Scotland is a real gem! If you’re looking for something with amazing outdoor adventures and ancient castles, it’s the perfect romantic getaway. This country, filled with legend and lore will be sure to bring a spark to your relationship. Visit the beautiful Isle of Skye and walk through the fairie glen and hike up to the fairie pools to soak up the magic.

Edinburgh is another romantic city in Scotland that will take your breath away. Colorful shops, winding streets, and historic sites will give you plenty to do.

5. The Azores, Portugal

Sao Miguel Azores Hydrangeas

The Azores , a small archipelago of Portuguese islands in the Atlantic Ocean are a stunning destination and one of the most romantic places in Europe if you’re looking for somewhere a little more tropical. Sao Miguel is the largest island with the most to do, but if you want to visit somewhere a little more secluded, pick one of the smaller islands like Faial to explore.

The food in the Azores is incredible and it’s also one of the cheaper romantic getaways in Europe. If you’re lucky enough to visit in the summer, you’ll get to experience the hydrangeas in bloom all over the islands. They can grow bigger than your head. There are hot springs all over the islands where you can soak up the hot water and the romance!

The capital city of Portugal is also one of the most romantic places in Europe, and for a couple of good reasons.

The Alfama is a truly romantic place in Lisbon, giving you amazing city views. It’s also one of the best places in Europe to witness sunrise with your beloved (Alfama translates to the “gate of the sun”).

Lisbon is quite warm as it gets lots of sun throughout the year. Sunbathing is popular here, as you enjoy the city’s warmth next to your significant other. Who knew spending much idle time in such a romantic city could feel this wonderful?

Considering a romantic city break? Visiting some of the most beautiful beaches in Lisbon is always a good idea! With the sun beaming down on the city year-round, you can basically go on a day trip on one of these beaches whenever you like.

Some of the best beaches in Lisbon include the Praia de Carcavelos, which is less than an hour from the city center. Meanwhile, Praia de Conceicao is a beautiful resort town only 45 minutes away by train.

Lisbon gives you access to cheap, simple pleasures in life that turn out to be the most romantic activities you do with your partner. For instance, you could pack a picnic, head to a scenic overlook, and spend some quiet time with each other over cheese and wine. The most recommended place to go is the Miradouro de S. Pedro de Alcântara, where you get the city’s most amazing views.

Capri is a small island in Italy, but it has so many romantic destinations that you won’t run out of places to go with your other half!

Capri is a few hours away from Rome by train. Capri boasts a stunning rugged coastline, clear skies, and pristine blue waters. This beautiful backdrop makes Capri one of the most romantic places in Europe for honeymoon.

Capri offers a slew of romantic destinations for lovers, especially those planning a romantic and intimate proposal.

Taking the boat to La Grotta Azzura (the Blue Grotto) gives you a unique and magical experience in Capri. The grotto is located inside a cave which you reach onboard a wooden rowboat. You see utter darkness as you go inside, but the view changes as you reach the grotto, where you float over the crystalline blue water.

Looking to explore Capri on foot? This tiny island has a number of fantastic hiking and trekking trails. It’s always worth taking the Monte Solaro trail, Capri’s highest point. The hike takes over an hour, but you’ll be rewarded with a swoon-worthy image of this beautiful island at the top.

15. Santorini, Greece

lover tour europe

The natural beauty makes it an effortless inclusion to our list of the best romantic European vacations. Located on the southern Aegean Sea, Santorini has everything you ever dream of for a romantic getaway – the sun, sea and sand, and so much more!

Let’s start your romantic excursion in Santorini with the extraordinary beaches on the island. These beaches have unique geographical features caused by past volcanic eruptions resulting in volcanic sand and rock deposits on the shores. The Red Beach, in particular, is popular due to its red and black pebbles. Other best beach options include Perivolos Beach, Perris Beach, and Ammoudi Beach.

Sunset sailing is also one of the best things couples do in Santorini. Instead of going to a packed location to watch the sky turn orange, you could charter a sailboat and enjoy the view in peace and quiet and in the company of your beloved.

Book an ATV instead of getting a taxi if you want to pump up your adrenaline. The ATV can take you to various romantic destinations on the island, from beaches and lighthouses to archaeological formations.

Relaxing in Santorini is best done with a glass of wine (or two!). Santorini is well known for its wineries, so you can’t afford to miss out on wine tasting during your vacation.

Santorini will always be beautiful by day, but it’s even more magical at night. And the best way to experience the island come sunset is to book a night tour, which includes a night hike, private wine tasting, and an intimate dinner — featuring traditional Greek cuisine with the mesmerizing sunset as your backdrop.

lover tour europe

Whether you are honeymooning, planning to get engaged, or celebrating a milestone in your relationship, Istanbul in Turkey will always remain one of the best romantic places in Europe.

Istanbul is underrated and isn’t as popular an option as Paris or Capri. But Istanbul holds a charm of its own, and the sheer number of romantic destinations makes it worth visiting.

One of the best things to do in Istanbul is to see the European and Asian sides simultaneously, and going onboard a Bosphorus cruise is the best way to do that. This private cruise takes you on a leisurely stroll over the sea strait of the Black Sea, allowing you to see the stunning views of the mosques in Istanbul. Depending on your cruise, you might get one with an inclusive private dinner or Turkish shows featuring belly dancers.

When you get on the ground, go on a city tour and discover the most interesting Turkish products and merch, including art, decor, carpets, and more. These bazaars and shops are worth exploring, whether you want to look around or actually buy something as a keepsake.

Experience the dynamic food scene in Istanbul by visiting the hip neighborhood of Kadikoy, where you can find a slew of quaint little cafes and high-end restaurants. Enjoy authentic Turkish food, drink beer and interact with the friendly locals while you’re there.

You also shouldn’t miss going to Capadoccia and experiencing a thrilling hot air balloon ride. This is a once-in-a-lifetime event best shared with someone special. You may book a hot air balloon ride any season of the year, and the views from above are just as enthralling in the summer as they are in the winter!

Couples who visit Istanbul should experience Turkish bath massages at least once during their stay. These heavenly massages offer a relaxing massage and scrub down, perfect for capping the night before heading to a rooftop candlelit dinner.

Nice also offers some of the best romantic trips in Europe. So if you ever find yourselves exploring this part of France, here are the romantic getaways you should indulge in.

The first romantic destination to explore in Nice is the Promenade des Anglais. Spend a fine afternoon at the promenade to people-watch or perhaps go skating or biking. An endless stretch of hotels, rental condos, and cozy cafes lined up one side, while gorgeous waterfronts with fine sand and the pristine blue sea glisten on the other.

Next, you’d want to hit up the Old Town of Nice, walking through the narrow cobblestone streets and stopping by shops to check out the products. The lively atmosphere combined with the friendly people makes this stroll quite romantic. While there, sit down at a cafe or bar, and watch the sunset with your loved one.

The Saleya Flower Market has always been a distinct feature of the Old Town. Vendors sell different kinds of blooms in all sorts of colors. You could also purchase local products, such as spices, and try a sampling of delicious street foods.

Castle Hill is one of the most romantic destinations in Nice. If you’re up for it, you can hike to the top of the hill and enjoy the astonishing view of the French Riviera. Alternatively, you could take the elevator or the train to get quickly to the lookout.

Amsterdam is a dreamy place that you can easily explore on foot.

You can stroll around the park with lush greens and a fresh breeze or sit down for a cozy chat.

Going to a tulips field is highly recommended if you plan to visit Amsterdam in spring. these fields are located outside the city, so it’s best to come up with a day trip itinerary to make the most of it. The trip to the tulips field is a magical experience, and it’s one of the best romantic destinations in Europe!

You can’t skip going to Jordaan, probably the prettiest neighborhood in Amsterdam. Jordaan boasts pretty courtyard gardens, a number of art galleries, and popular cafes and restaurants. This picture-perfect area is one of the best places to explore, either by day or night.

19. London, England

lover tour europe

London is inarguably one of the most romantic vacations in Europe. The city throbs romance wherever you go, so it’s a fantastic place to spend your honeymoon or a special date with someone you like.

There are plenty of romantic activities you can do in London. The first thing you’d want to do is get aboard a cruise on the Thames. You’ll have the opportunity to appreciate London’s beauty at night while sipping champagne and sharing a delicious and intimate dinner with your beloved.

Since you’re in London, you don’t want to miss out on the chance to visit Kensington Palace. The palace unmatched unparalleled beauty, especially in February. The gardens are stunning and make the perfect backdrop for a pictorial.

Or, if you’re a die-hard plant-lover, visit the Kew Gardens next, where you can find various themed gardens and literally hundreds of flower varieties.

20. Vienna, Austria

lover tour europe

Vienna is the enchanting capital city of Austria, and it’s definitely on our list of the most romantic destinations in Europe.

Vienna is well-known for classical music, and one of its musical geniuses is Mozart. It’s only right to see at least one classical music performance in Vienna with your partner, seeing that it’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience, even for people who aren’t fans of classical music.

For a chill and laid-back stroll, we suggest going to Schönbrunn Palace Gardens, a public area where you can relish the beauty of Vienna. Hand-in-hand, see the beautiful gardens, take photos by the fountains, and aimlessly explore the rest of the gardens.

It’s also quite fascinating that some of Vienna’s wineries are within city limits, so we urge you to include that in your day tour. Viennese are proud of their dry white wines, made from a grape variety that mostly grows in Vienna.

Alternatively, you could visit Schlumberger wine cellars which are three centuries old! Not only will you get a fantastic wine-tasting session, but actually see how champagnes are traditionally made!

You should also experience riding Vienna’s giant Ferris wheel, the Wiener Riesenrad, together. Riding the Ferris wheels affords you a fascinating panoramic view of the city, especially at night. You could also book a private dinner and have a personal waiter attend to you, which will surely sweep your partner off her feet!

Vienna is also one of the most romantic places in Europe in winter. Make a beeline toward the Christmas markets, where everything you see, hear, and smell feels like the holidays! Go Christmas shopping for cakes and decor, and finish the excursion with a cup of hot chocolate in your hands!

European art in two weeks

A two-week tour of europe for lovers of fine art.

For this trip, you can work out the daily sightseeing schedules on your own, depending on what most floats your artistic boat. Most cities have 2.5 full days of sightseeing time budgeted, which should be enough to give the major museums a good once-over.

Days 1 through 3: London: Your first order of business should definitely be the medieval, Renaissance, and baroque masterpieces of the National Gallery. The other great art collection is the Tate Gallery, which covers the British greats as well as international art of the 19th and 20th centuries from impressionism to contemporary works. You may also want to stop by the National Portrait Gallery; it exists more for the historical interest of the subjects, but it has some artistically fine portraits as well (especially by Holbein, Reynolds, and Warhol). No museum buff should miss the Victoria & Albert Museum, which has London's best sculpture collection (Donatello, Giambologna, Bernini) and a fascinating exhibit on artistic fakes and forgeries, in addition to miles of decorative arts. If you're into Christopher Wren's brand of Renaissance architecture, the city's full of it; his greatest hit is St. Paul's. I can't imagine a trip to London without calling on the British Museum, at least briefly, where you can get the best overview of the ancient world's art forms (Greek, Roman, Egyptian, Assyrian, Asian, Indian, and Islamic). On the morning of Day 4, catch an early Eurostar train to Paris.

Days 4 through 6: Paris: You'll want to explore the treasures of the Louvre over a full day at least. Fans of impressionism and French art in general should devote at least two-thirds of a day to the Musée d'Orsay. Paris has so many smaller art museums it's hard to choose from among them and nearly impossible to squeeze them all in. Whole museums are devoted to single artists (Rodin, Picasso, Delacroix, Le Corbusier, Dalí), and others are devoted to eras—the medieval at Thermes de Cluny, the modern in the Pompidou. Two of my favorite, slightly lesser-known art treasures are the Delacroix murals in the church of St-Suplice and Monet's 360° Waterlilies in specially built basement rooms of the Orangerie, off Place de la Concorde. At the end of Day 6, hop on the overnight train to Florence.

Days 7 through 9: Florence: Reserve one entire day for the Uffizi galleries, a living textbook of Renaissance development. The Pitti Palace's Galleria Palantina covers the High Renaissance and baroque eras thoroughly. Michelangelo's David and his unfinished Slaves in the Accademia are a must, and Donatello reigns supreme at the Bargello sculpture museum. Fra' Angelico frescoed his brothers' cells at his monastery of San Marco, and they've set up a fine museum to him there. Florence's churches are so richly decorated I scarcely know where to begin: Giotto in Santa Croce; Ghirlandaio and Masaccio in Santa Maria Novella; Donatello and Michelangelo at San Lorenzo and again in the Museo dell'Opera dell Duomo. Then there's Brunelleschi's architecture from the Duomo to Santo Spirito to the Pazzi chapel at Santa Croce. Florence is one place where you'll run out of time before you run out of art.

Days 10 through 12: Rome: Take the morning train here from Florence on Day 10 and start in on the baroque period with Bernini's sculpture in Piazza Navona, Piazza Barberini, and the Galleria Borghese. The Vatican Museums (home to the Raphael Rooms, the Pinacoteca, and Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel) will take two-thirds of a day. The Capitoline Museums split their collections between ancient sculpture and mosaics and Renaissance and baroque painting. Some smaller museums include the Doria Pamphilij collections and the Galleria Nazionale d'Arte Antica at Palazzo Barberini. Rome's churches are blanketed with art, from Filippino Lippi's frescoes in Santa Maria Sopra Minerva (where you'll also find Michelangelo's Risen Christ ) to the Caravaggios in Santa Maria del Popolo and Michelangelo's Moses in San Pietro in Vincoli. Again, you're unlikely to run out of art to ogle in just three days here. On the evening of Day 12, get on the overnight train for the long haul to Barcelona.

Day 13: Barcelona: You should definitely take in the early works at the Picasso museum and make a survey of Gaudí's whimsical architecture in this Catalonian capital. On this tour, however, Barcelona's more of a way station and a one-day breather before we press on. At the end of the day, hop the overnight train to Madrid, where we'll plunge into its myriad museums.

Days 14 through 16: Madrid: Spain is the land of Picasso, Velàzquez, Goya, El Greco (by adoption), Murillo, and Ribera. You have a day to devote to the Prado and another day to split between the Reina Sofía museum (home of Picasso's Guernica ), the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, and—if you can stand any more art at this point—the Museo Làzaro Galdiano. Day 16 is spent getting back home.

Europe Escape Tour

  • Coach / Bus

Europe Escape

The trip was an absolute great taste of several Western European countries. We jammed a lot of itinerary into a twelve day trip. Overall, the accomodations and meals were favorable. I would like to make a suggestion. On the first day or the trip, we were walked for miles through the side streets of Venice. People were not ready for this level of exertion on the very frist day of the trip. Within days, I saw two women limping and wearing knee braces in order to walk. There were people utilizing canes to walk. I have Lupus and am prone to bouts of fatigue, especially when expoised to too much sun and heat. I would ask that the company appropriates a water taxi for the coach passengers that will drop them off at the dick right next to Piazza San Marco.rather than that grind of a walk throught the side streets. People want to see the Piazza, not the side streets That first miles long walk took its toll on many of the passengers. I even saw one women entering the coach and break into tears because of her pain level. Most of the people on this trip were in their fifties and sixties. I'm sure they were not expecting such a rigorous daily regiment. I'm 6' 6'' and 300+. I was averaging 10,000 to 15, 000 steps a day on on uneven cobblestone, and boy did it ever take its toll on my knees and joints. I'm still recovering from the achy knees. That's the only suggestion I have. Find a way to get the tourist from point A to B without having people on vacation walk for multiple miles. It's a vacation. You're not supposed to return home injured and in pain.

The Great Adventure Tour

  • Christmas & New Year

The Great Adventure

I had an amazing experience on the 14 day tour. After Covid lockdowns, my daughter and I were eager to travel overseas and see places we haven’t been to. Everything on the tour was so well organised and the tour guides Enmanuelle, Phillipe and Oksana were very informative and knowledgeable. They all did an exceptional job. All the hotels we stayed at were very clean, spacious and had a big variety for breakfast. The only suggestion would be to have the option for travellers to return to hotels earlier. Days started early and involved lots of walking and the free time should be an option to return to hotel. A note to travellers would be to be cautious In Amsterdam of dodgy uber drivers asking you to cancel trips and to pay in cash. Also in shops if you don’t see the price for an item don’t tap your card for purchases because you will be in for a big shock when you check your account balance.

Best of Central Europe Tour

Best of Central Europe

This tour had everything I was looking for! Great Eastern European food, great local beer, and a variety of things to do for any type of interest. The hikes were fantastic, and the transportation between stops was well organized. This tour offers a good balance of free time and time with the group, which allows you to come together at the end of the day over dinner to discuss your day.

Essential Britain & Ireland Tour

Essential Britain & Ireland

Very nice itinerary ... jam packed days and evenings. I chose not to do any of the extra evening excursions that were offered so I was able to use the time to explore every overnight stop on my own. The tour guide was amazing... so full of knowledge about all the countries/areas we visited.

What people love about Europe Tours

Thank for MARYSOL AND SE BASTIANO a great deal I finally seen Europe a great deal, I enjoyed Interlaken Switzerland Casino as I invested £10.00 and won £300.00 Swizz Francs . I love Switzerland and France. I think it's quite too much walking for me . You should try to incorporate renting some of GOLF CARTS TOur Like me Rosita did in Florence we rented a Cart tour Cart ride and was able to a lots around Florence. I glad to made a lot of new friends specially from South Africa they are all wonderful and sweet and other countries.
Eva and Rene were amazing tour guides. Disappointed that we didn't see the Eiffel Tower at night. Several times we were dropped in town at night with not enough time to get a meal before being taken to the hotel. Some hotels were out of town with nothing within walking distance. Thank you to Rene for arranging for a group of us to go to the Moulin Rouge.
To be honest, part of what made the trip fantastic was our group of 12- could not have had a better group to travel with- which is clearly luck, but a piece of our group being so cohesive was Nejca, our guide. She was perfect! Available but not pushy. Laid back, but willing to assert herself to make our experience the best. She made each person in the group feel special and appreciated. Thank you, Nejca! The itinerary was quite good as well. Although there were places I could have stayed for a day longer, I think it’s important to not stay too long and feel like time is wasted on a certain place on the tour. Transportation was efficient and Nejca did a great job getting us to our destinations easily and without rushing. Accommodations were very good- with the exception of Prague. Although our apartment was nice, it was clear that the residents of Prague feel that their space is being taken over by tourists- which is clearly true. I would have preferred to have stayed in a hotel in Prague-honestly, I would have paid more for it. Other than that, cannot day enough good things about the trip! Thank you!!

Customizable Itinerary

Madrid – historical introduction the spanish capital.

Arrive in Madrid and the artistic indulgence cascades from townhouse walls. Pastel colors emanate from the Hapsburg Quarter; ancient messages are sculpted into balconies and doorways, while unknown paintings fill the walls of tapas taverns. You're greeted at Madrid Airport and transferred to your hotel in the heart of the city. Freshen up and you're taken through the city on a walking tour, traversing the old Hapsburg and Bourbon quarters before admiring the indulgent baroque style of the Royal Palace. This flexible tour can be shortened or lengthened dependent on your mood after the flight and is a great introduction to the atmosphere of the city.

What's Included:

Madrid – A Day of Fine Art at Museo del Prado - One of the World's Greatest Galleries

Perhaps only the Louvre can rival Museo del Prado for its collection of fine art. Spanning the 12th to 19th centuries the gallery stands unrivaled in its showcase of Spanish artists and the whole morning is dedicated to the Spanish side of the museum. Velazquez welcomes you, one of his bronze statues dominating the promenade entrance and his famous Las Meninas waiting inside. An array of rooms is dedicated to the individualistic brilliance of Spain's most important Golden Age artist. Then, you roam through the imaginative romance of Goya; Museo del Prado containing the greatest collection of his work, including The Third of May . A specialist Spanish art historian accompanies you; the informative tour takes you to the heart of the canvases.

Take a break for lunch and continue the discussions about style and influence, your guide revealing the stories behind lesser-known Spanish artists that flourished under more famous tutors. Spend the afternoon exploring the greatest collection of Italian masters outside Italy and the baroque styles of Rubens and Bosch, Flemish painters who were under Spanish rule at the time. The specialist guide accompanies you all day and will tailor the afternoon towards any distinct interests you have.

Madrid – Two Exceptional Galleries in the Heart of Madrid

The canvases of Goya and Zurbaran gaze from the wall of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts: their thick swishes of color joined by other Spanish masters like Ribera and Murila. Comprehensive commentary comes from your guide, providing context and history to this less-visited collection. Spend the morning here, before indulging in the great Madrid tradition of a long lunch on the Plaza Mayor. While the Royal Academy has structure and direction, the Thyseen-Bornemisza Collection is an ode to the wealth of private collectors. Wander down the resplendent corridors of the 18th century Palacio de Villahermosa, admiring the vibrant shocks and unusual portraits contained in what was one of the world's largest private art collections (the Spanish government bought it in the 90's and made it available to the public). Its highlights span the whole of Europe over eight centuries, offering a sublime snapshot at masterful fine art.

Madrid – An Interactive Art Class and a Journey Through Modern Art

Madrid is calm in the morning light, the streets slowly coming alive with the smells of coffee and chocolate. At this time it barely feels like a capital, more like a giant village for exploring at leisure. Relax, take your time, enjoy the morning, and be guided through the Reina Sofia when you're ready. Spain's premier contemporary art gallery is an astonishing journey through famous names, taking your eye from Picasso to Miro to Dali to Tapies. Like the last two days, a specialist guide helps provide an historical context and helps tie the individual works together, culminating in Picasso's Guernica . Madrid's art scene is almost unparalleled so where better to experiment with brushstrokes? Spend the afternoon on a private art master class, taking inspiration from the Madrid galleries onto the canvas. This art class will be expertly tailored to your own interests, whether that's recreating the Spanish masters or perfecting an unusual personal inclination.

Madrid – Hidden Treasures in an Art Lover's City

The master class of Spanish art continues today with some of Madrid's lesser-known attractions. Goya's frescoes blend across the neoclassical San Antonio de la Florida, cherubs and biblical scenes covering ceilings of enchantment. This is where the artist is buried and there are perhaps no better examples of his work, the paintings curving across domes of resplendence. Continue the day at the Lazaro Galdiano Museum, another lesser-visited Madrid gallery. The museum contains the private collection of Jose Lazaro Galdiano, a man who bought everything from Iberian Celtic sculptures to medieval artistry and carved ivory. Gaze up to sublime baroque painted ceilings then look around to the collection of paintings that include El Greco, Goya's Witches' Sabbath , Bosch, Velazquez, and Zurbaran. Your guide pulls the narrative together from a very diverse collection. The afternoon is free for you to explore Madrid your at leisure, with the opportunity to visit a temporary exhibition dependent on the time of your visit.

Cuenca – Picturesque Journeys Through La Mancha

There's a final Madrid pleasure this morning, the Sorolla Museum containing the sun-dappled vibrancy and dexterity of Joaquin Sorolla y Bastida. Then you leave Madrid, winding into the La Mancha plains and stopping at the surreal timber houses of Chinchon. You're heading back in time, Madrid city giving way to medieval villages and walled towns. Arrive in Cuenca for a long Spanish lunch on the main square, the sounds of the past flickering from cobblestoned corridors. Towering above the valley, Cuenca is one of Spain's most untrammeled towns and a serene place to spend the next two nights. Enjoy the afternoon at leisure, gazing down from the castle ramparts and completely slowing down the pace.

Cuenca – From the 15th to 21st Century in a Single Day

The Cuenca old town feels untouched and unchanged, women still in floral dresses and bakeries emitting idyllic morning smells. Carved wooden ceilings fill the Gothic cathedral while Plateresque portals ensure you're still exploring the 16th century. The town's small museums maintain the archaic musing, works of El Greco hanging amidst the musty smells of yesteryear. But continue the Cuenca tour and Spain's abstract modernism is discovered. The paintings of Saura and the sculptures of Chillida fill a 15th century building that practically crumbles over the gorge. This Museum of Abstract Art seems out of place given the surroundings, yet the remarkable juxtapositions find a strange harmony. Tapies, Zobel, and Munoz are also found here, amongst a rapidly developing collection of over 1,500 works.

Toledo – Gothic Resplendence and Churches Filled with Spanish Masters

Toledo's castle gleams from afar, guiding you towards a city of rich artistic treasure. The spires of a 13th century Mudejar church rise from behind the city walls, a synagogue stands beside the mausoleum of King Ferdinand, and then the monastery of San Juan de Los Reyes stands radiant with its late Gothic decoration. Arrive in Toledo in the mid-morning and spend some time slowly exploring, discovering the rich tapestry of architecture and a rich display of Spanish masters. El Greco's greatest work – the Burial of Count Orgaz - fills the Church of Santo Tome, while Spain's largest Gothic cathedral is stuffed with paintings and sculptures from Valazquez and Titian. Finish the guided tour in the mid-afternoon and enjoy some free time soaking up this fairytale old city.

Toledo - The World of El Greco

Toledo's most famous resident is the focus of today, the life and work of El Greco dotted around the city's fabulous historic buildings. Start outside the city gates, admiring his Spanish renaissance paintings that hang in the Museum of Santa Cruz and the Hospital de Tavera. El Greco, The Greek , achieved his fame when he moved to Toledo and started being commissioned for notable Renaissance churches. His dramatic style struggles to be classified, mixing expressionism with fantasy and marrying disparate ideas. This is best displayed at the El Greco House and Museum, where his early work reveals an eclectic and always evolving style. An El Greco expert is your guide, helping to gradually build a detailed picture of an artist's artist, one that inspired much 20th century expressionism and cubism. Finish the tour at the Convent of St. Domingo, where El Greco's works hang above his burial place.

Cordoba – Exploring Andalusian Architecture and Medieval Europe

A first-class train slices across the La Mancha plains towards Andalusia, endless yellow plains drifting towards the horizon, as you get ready to explore the ancient capital of Islamic Spain. There's a break from classic galleries and museums today, your guided Cordoba tour focusing on the magnificent architecture of what was once the richest city in Europe. The 13th century grand mosque delivers elegant patterns of symmetry, lines stretching around the 16th century cathedral that's built within it. Now the lavish Medina Azahara, ten centuries old yet still symbolic of Cordoba's dedication to artistry. Cordoba's old town has an Eastern exoticism that immediately inspires, the camera snapping away as a local guide provides romantic historical chronicles.

Cordoba – Roman and Arab Art in an Exotic Destination

Cordoba's art presents a narrative of the city's history, starting in the Archaeological Museum with Roman remains and a decadent collection of Arab pieces. It moves forward through the Alcazar and its Roman mosaics to the winding maze of the Jewish quarter, home to synagogues and the delightful ceiling of the Fine Arts Museum. Now the canvases of old Spanish masters join the journey, before the Museo Julio Romero de Torres brings you into a symbolist early 20th century. As always, a local art expert guides you through the day and you visit all of the city's important galleries and museums. When the afternoon sun starts to fade you enjoy another private art class, taken on the terrace of your hotel. Like in Madrid, it's a private lesson that's tailored to your interests.

Malaga – Finishing the Tour in Picasso's Birthplace

Since eying his work at the Reina Sofia, one famous Spanish artist has been notably absent from this itinerary: Pablo Picasso. Take a direct train to Malaga and you're in his birthplace. A local Picasso expert greets you at the station and you start at the house the artist was born in. A few of his belongings are on display and it helps set the scene for the Picasso Museum, home to an astonishing collection of his works. In particular, the museum reveals his early work, allowing you to chart the development of his distinct and highly influential style. After absorbing it all you take lunch at a quaint town square before visiting the final gallery of this trip: the Carmen Thyssen museum. Like this whole vacation, the gallery takes you on a journey through the styles and schools, from the old masters to the flamboyance of 19th century painters and then the surrealist tones of the next generation.

Malaga – Departure

This morning, your transfer meets you at the hotel lobby and takes you to Malaga Airport and your return flight. As you bid farewell you scour through the memories, piecing together the styles and schools that have danced across this vacation.

Trip Highlights

  • All art tours are conducted by specialist art historians, helping provide a context and history to the famous works that fill the walls

Detailed Description

Spain's art ripples across the centuries; a dozen styles and schools fill canvases with vibrant blurs and experimental expressionism. The names ignite the imagination, promising splendor and surrealism: Picasso, Dali, Goya, El Greco, and Velazquez. But these are just the start, the famed sons who forever influenced the world of art. Delve deeper and the country is a treasure chest of galleries and locally renowned artists, their work spreading across cathedral domes, convent walls, and world-famous museums. This art lover's tour magnificently represents the great Spanish painters, while also leading the eye through artistic niches and subtle delights. A specialist art historian guides you through every gallery and museum trip, helping to provide a rich context and history to the works. As you travel from Madrid to Malaga you piece together your own narrative of the country's art heritage and distinct style.

Madrid is one of the world's great art capitals and your base for the first five days. Visit the astonishing collections of renowned galleries like the Prado, Reina Sofia, and Thyseen-Bornemisza Collection. But also discover the city's lesser-known delights, like Goya's frescos in the San Antonio de la Florida and Lazaro Galdiano's collection of Velazquez and Zurbaran. For every world-famous canvas, like Picasso's Guernica , there's a local treasure that unveils artists' early work. Madrid is also where you take your first art master class, with another one being enjoyed later on in Cordoba.

Days six to nine are spent in Cuenca and Toledo, quaint medieval towns that you marvel at in the magnitude of their history. The old mixes with the new here, from a day dedicated to the ethereal work of El Greco, to the late 21st century Spanish work found in Cuenca's Museum of Abstract Art. Cathedrals and churches feature staggeringly elaborate frescos, some of the old masters' finest work found in the Gothic and Renaissance monuments of yesteryear. Like Madrid, expert local guides show you around, combining galleries and museums with evocative medieval architecture.

On day ten you travel by first-class train to Andalusia and the exotic remains of Cordoba. The buildings have a distinctively Eastern feel, grand displays of wealth that present an alternative side to Spain's historical art. The Fine Arts Museum and Museo Julio Romera de Torres feature a more classical side to Andalusia before you complete the vacation in Malaga, birthplace of Picasso. The painter's blossoming style can be read in his early work, on display at the Picasso Museum, and another specialist guide helps to unlock the hidden corners of his art.

Holmes Chapel, English village of Harry Styles' youth, needs fans to be tour guides

Many tourists visit sites such as a bakery where Styles once worked and a Chinese restaurant where he once dined with Taylor Swift. Tourism has been great for local businesses.

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.

Holmes Chapel, the English village of Harry Styles' youth, is looking for superfans to work as tour guides. The village gets a lot of tourists, Harries visiting sites like a bakery where Styles once worked and a Chinese restaurant where he once dined with Taylor Swift. The not-for-profit calling for tour guides says tourism has been great for local business, and now it wants to elevate its offerings.

(Singing) Why don't we leave it at that?

Take a tour of Europe at Staunton Music Festival's SpringFest concert

lover tour europe

STAUNTON — Take a tour of Europe while never leaving Staunton at SpringFest: Baroque Journeys, a Staunton Music Festival weekend concert April 12-14.

Now in its third year, SpringFest offers a three-day celebration of Baroque music, spanning Europe from West to East and culminating with Handel's Italian oratorio  La Resurrezione . All concerts feature period instrument performers. Programs include music for voices, orchestra, and chamber ensembles and feature historical keyboards.

Through this music, and this particular program with its place based music, audiences will be transported to Europe and back in time, too. A new way to travel, if you will. These are masterpieces that have stood the test of time. Vivaldi's "Four Seasons" on Saturday night is known to classical music lovers as a crowd pleaser.

Because Staunton Music Festival plays all music composed prior to 1850 on instruments of that era, via “historic performance,” audiences will actually hear it the way that audiences would have heard it back then, when the composer wrote it. That’s unusual, and it happens here in Staunton.

As opposed to the larger summer festival, SpringFest is all early music — all Baroque. The summer festival's music spans more than 600 years into the present day. Every concert this weekend will be performed on period instruments, by artists trained in historic performance. To learn more, visit: https://www.stauntonmusicfestival.org/period-instruments

Carsten Schmidt, Staunton Music Festival's artistic director, will take audiences on a tour of the continent over the course of the weekend's performances. The weekend will culminate with Handel's Italian oratorio La Resurrezione .

Want to see the next total solar eclipse in 2026? An expert recommends booking travel now.

  • 2026 will be Europe's first total solar eclipse in 27 years.
  • Travelers worldwide will likely head to Spain, Iceland, and Greenland for the event.
  • A hotel expert encouraged travelers to start planning and booking their trips now.

Insider Today

It'll be two decades before the next total solar eclipse hits the US .

Another option: hop on a plane to Europe and turn the 2026 total solar eclipse into a viewing vacation.

Eclipse cartographer Michael Zeiler at GreatAmericanEclipse.com told Space.com that up to 3.7 million people likely traveled for the solar eclipse on Monday.

HotelPlanner's chief communication officer, Philip Ballard, told Business Insider that the eclipse was a major revenue generator for many cities. For places like Austin, Texas, and Rochester, New York, it could have created $1 billion in revenue, Vox reported.

"I would say the total solar eclipse has become a global phenomenon," Ballard said.

Ballard added that the next solar eclipse , which will pass through Iceland, Greenland, and Spain on August 12, 2026, could result in similar tourism and revenue influxes.

And if travelers are considering a trip to Europe for the solar eclipse, Ballard recommends planning your trip now.

Determine your eclipse viewing destination

According to Space.com , 2026 will be Europe's first total solar eclipse in 27 years. Its path will go through Greenland, parts of western Iceland, and northern Spain.

Choosing where to watch the eclipse will be a tough and important decision for travelers.

Iceland and Greenland have some positives. These regions will experience longer totality times, so viewers can watch the eclipse longer. Plus, the sun will be higher in the sky, so finding a spot to watch the eclipse will be less challenging, Space.com reported.

The downside is that these regions are more likely to be cloudy, according to the outlet.

Related stories

While parts of Spain are likely to offer clearer skies, the eclipse's timing will be shorter and closer to the horizon, which means travelers will need to plan and track down a viewing location with unobstructed views of the western horizon, Space.com reported.

Regardless of the destination, according to the outlet, one bonus is that the strongest meteor shower in the Northern Hemisphere will happen the following night, so travelers can pack two events into one trip.

Book flights and hotels far in advance

Ballard encouraged people to book their hotels in their destination of choice as far in advance as possible.

"You should start looking now and booking hotels now because those cities in the path are already going to be at peak season," Ballard said.

Ballard said it's similar to when a Super Bowl city is determined or a Taylor Swift tour date is announced — you immediately see spikes in bookings. He predicts hotel occupancy rates will hit near-record highs, and room prices may double around the solar eclipse date.

Ballard's general rule of thumb is to book international travel at least three months in advance, but since this is such an anticipated event, booking earlier is smart. His advice is to start discussing plans with friends and family. If you decide on a destination, book a refundable room to keep your options open if plans change.

Regarding purchasing a plane ticket, a study from Expedia states that international travel's sweet spot is at least six months in advance.

According to Expedia, travelers who book six months in advance save an average of 10% more than travelers booking within two months or less.

Skip the hassle of planning altogether and book a solar eclipse tour

Another option is to let a tour operator do the work for you. A handful of tour companies have seen the increased interest in the solar eclipse and launched tours designed around the event.

These tours will have predetermined locations to view the eclipse, hotel blocks reserved, and itineraries highlighting both the region and the eclipse.

However, these can sell out quickly. For example, Space and Telescope created an 11-day tour of Spain around viewing the 2026 solar eclipse. The tour has already sold out as of Wednesday, and the waitlist is full.

Other operators, such as Wilderness Travel and Eclipse Traveler, have similar itineraries for the total eclipse in 2026.

The Jonas Brothers Are Facing Fan Backlash After Rescheduling Their European Tour Dates

The Jonas Brothers Are Facing Fan Backlash After Rescheduling Their European Tour Dates

The internet is currently filled with disappointed Jonas Brothers fans.

On Wednesday, April 10, the band announced via X that they are rescheduling the European leg of their tour , noting that upcoming shows are being shifted to later this year. “We appreciate your love and support so much,” the trio wrote. “We know this is a bit inconvenient but we can’t wait to share more about what’s coming.”

The bandmates added that previously purchased tickets will be honored for the new tour dates. A note on the Jonas Brothers’ website says that European concerts are being postponed due to “scheduling conflicts.”

Fans of Joe Jonas , Kevin Jonas and Nick Jonas took to social media to share their grievances about the scheduling change. “I love the jonas brothers but the way they and their team are doing things is not okay,” X user @heyitsjobros wrote . “@jonasbrothers you can’t just reschedule tour dates without giving an explanation. people [are] traveling from different sites to see you and you just postponed shows for MONTHS later? “

X user @Yassmine_ehb added , “I had 9 tickets in 6 countries, You cancel the tour bc you have more exciting projects.Did you think of all of us who put so much money for this ? Hotels and plane are not refundable.”

The band is currently globe-trotting across Latin America , with upcoming shows in Chile, Peru and Colombia. Dubbed The Tour , the concerts showcase the brothers as they perform five albums throughout the evening: 2007’s Jonas Brothers, 2008’s A Little Bit Longer, 2009’s Lines, Vines and Trying Times and 2019’s Happiness Begins. There are also select songs from 2023’s The Album.

“We’ve been burnt out before and then you’re like, ‘I still got 20 more shows on this tour,” he explained. “So we all have our own perspective ways of going about that, and we just make sure that that’s prioritized and also that we think the three of us are communicating as best as we can.”

The singer added that performing “doesn’t feel like work” when it’s in front of the band’s fans. “We’re treating this like the best tour we’ve ever done,” he said. “And I think we intend to make it that experience for fans as well.”

The Best Cities in Europe for Beer Lovers

Posted: March 30, 2023 | Last updated: June 7, 2023

From the iconic brewing nations of Germany, the Czech Republic and Belgium to lesser-known but excellent beer countries, <a href="https://www.travelpulse.com/destinations/europe">Europe</a> is full of great beer cities. What makes a destination a great European beer city? Well, for starters, it should be home to a legacy brewer or two, a few up-and-coming craft breweries and perhaps even have a unique beer style to call its own. The following 25 cities in Europe are all known for their beer culture in some way, shape or form and should be on the radar of any beer lover <a href="https://www.travelpulse.com/gallery/destinations/how-to-stay-safe-when-traveling-in-europe-this-summer.html">traveling to Europe</a>. Pop a top, pour yourself a brew and click on the slideshow to experience a tour of Europe's great beer cities.

Beer in the brewpub

Arguably Europe's most <a href="https://www.travelpulse.com/gallery/destinations/50-reasons-london-is-the-world-s-best-destination.html">enthralling destination</a>, London often gets overlooked when it comes to beer destinations and that's a big mistake. During its brewing heyday in the 1700s & 1800s, this city had more breweries than anywhere else in the world and it even gave birth to three iconic styles of beer: porter, stout and India Pale Ale. Those great beers sit alongside classic ales and new-school craft beers on taps inside the city's sensational pubs, which are worth visiting the city for alone.

If there is one European city that is synonymous with its suds, it's Munich. The capital of Germany's brewing-mad state of Bavaria, Munich is home to iconic beer halls (Hofbrauhaus and Augustiner Stammhaus among many others), leafy beer gardens and the world-famous <a href="http://worldwidescott.com/oktoberfest-munich/">Oktoberfest</a> festival each autumn. The beer culture here runs deep and a sunny afternoon spent in one of the aforementioned beer gardens will be a delight for drinkers and non-drinkers alike.

Beer at Oktoberfest

This is it, the precise spot where the magic started. Pilsen is the birthplace of pilsner beer (the brew took its name from the city from which it sprung forth) and a pilgrimage to the Pilsner Urquell Brewery is a must for all beer lovers passing through this section of <a href="https://www.travelpulse.com/opinions/column/say-hello-to-central-europe.html">Central Europe</a>.

Pilsner Urquell beer

Pilsner may have been invented in Pilsen, but Prague is the place you'll have the most fun drinking it. From rustic restaurants & beer halls to specialist bars like Pivovarský klub Benedict and the famed Letná Park beer garden overlooking the city, the culture of beer is intertwined with Czech capital. And in terms of quality compared to the price you'll pay, Prague just might offer the best deal on the continent.

Charles Bridge in Prague, Czech Republic

Bruges will probably never be considered the "best" place to drink beer in Belgium, but it offers an unrivaled opportunity to quaff quality Belgian suds while being surrounded by one of Europe's most beguiling cityscapes. See the sights of the city before spending an afternoon sipping Belgian ales by a canal or paying a visit to the De Halve Maan brewery for an entertaining and thirst-quenching tour.

To clear up any misconceptions, they most definitely brew great beer in Scandinavia. Head north to Denmark's capital to experience the two of the continent's most revered craft brewers in their hometown (Mikeller and To Øl) before comparing and contrasting them to the city's two most famous big brewers: Carlsberg and Touborg.

Nyhavn, Copenhagen, Denmark

The birthplace of kölsch -an ultra-drinkable ale/lager hybrid-and home to characterful bars that proudly serve this great beer in tiny-yet-just-perfect glasses, Cologne is one of Germany's most underrated beer cities. Visit the Brauerei Päffgen or Fruh Brauhaus to sample the city's famed brew, but be aware that the beer halls' famously brusk waiters will keep bringing you refills of kölsch until you wave them off.

Beer hall in Cologne, Germany

Yes, Dublin is the home of Guinness and no self-respecting beer lover would visit here without raising a pint of the dark stuff in one of the city's fine pubs-many that feature handsome interiors complete with snugs-or visiting the Guinness Storehouse, but it's not the only great beer being poured in this city. A visit to brewpubs from craft outfits like Porterhouse-famed for this Oyster Stout-and Rascals will more than satisfy your curiosity for a taste of the current Irish beer scene.

The capital of Belgium is arguably the best place to sample the country's greatest export. Here, you can choose from hanging out at elite-level beer bars or visiting the breweries themselves, like the legendary Cantillon, which has gained an international reputation for itself with its range of spontaneously-fermented beers. Don't forget to grab an order of some of the city's famed golden-fried <em>frites</em> (fries) after a session of sipping Belgian beers.

Europe's Cosmopolitan Cities: Amsterdam, Brussels & Paris

Bavaria is the undisputed king of brewing in Germany, but Upper Franconia is Bavaria's most prolific beermaking region and this beautiful town beside the Regnitz River should be a must-stop for any beer lover touring the area. Bamberg is renowned for its unique <em>rauchbier</em> ("smoke beer") served up at Schlenkerla brewpub, but it's just the tip of the iceberg as this small town is home to several breweries and just as many tasty styles.

This lively college town lies a short train ride from Brussels and in addition to being home to a host of great bars pouring and popping the top of great Belgian beers, it's home to global beer icon Stella Artois. Visit the Stella brewery to learn all about this iconic brand before heading into the town center to sip a few beers from one of Leuven's other local beermakers Brewery Breda.

Famed for its <em>altbier</em>-a chestnut-colored lager-style beer with a kiss of fruit-this city on the Rhine River is a beer lover's dream. The best part about a beer-centric trip to Dusseldorf? The city's brewing prowess has managed to slip under the radar to many beer lovers, so it still feels a bit like being let in on a secret. Be warned, the locals will probably will ask you if you prefer their <em>altbier</em> to the <em>kölsch</em> being served in neighboring rival Cologne, and well, you know the right answer to that question.

Rheinknie Bridge and Rhine Tower in Dusseldo

From the awesome Indian street food & craft beer mashup Bundobust to the renowned Runaway and world-famous Cloudwater, this city sits near the top of the British craft beer game. Visit to go a bit off the beaten path of Britain and quaff some tasty serious suds along the way. If you're into sports, pair up the beer-sipping with a trip to watch either Manchester United or Manchester City play at their pitches, both located near the city center.

Craft brews.

It's easy to see why folks would think that Italians are all about wine and wine alone, but those that dig deeper will discover a country in love with its beer and the Eternal City is the spot to sample a fine sampling of the nation's best brews. Sure, you'll be able to score Peroni and Moretti bottles all over the city, but you'll leave more in love with one of the up-and-coming <em>birre artigianali</em> (artisan beer) that you sampled in one of Rome's tap rooms. The best spot? That's easily Open Baladin, which features 40 Italian artisan craft beers on draft.

The Colosseum in Rome, Italy

Ghent sits in the "Goldilocks zone" of the Belgian travel world, as it's just right when it comes to the balance of its gorgeous cityscape and popularity. Visit one of the city's many cozy pubs and waterside bars like Het Waterhuis aan de Bierkant to sample beer from across Belgium or visit an esteemed local brewery like Brouwbar or Gruut.

Panorama of Vilnius, Lithuania

This regal city on the Danube is a wellspring of cultured pursuits, historical attractions and sensational food & drink. Walk the grand boulevards before taking in an opera or taking a spin on the famous Wiener Riesenrad Ferris wheel or spend your day exploring the local vineyards, many of which are located within the city limits. Regardless, you’ll be surrounded by safer than average streets wherever you go.

Another victim of geography-this time being overshadowed by neighbors Germany and Belgium-The Netherlands never seems to come up on lists like this, but rest assured that the Dutcch know how to brew great beer. Amsterdam is the best place to sample it all, with great bars like Proeflokaal Arendsnest featuring nothing but Dutch beer and craft brewers in the city like Oedipus, Brouwerij 't IJ or Troost brewing with enough skill to compete with anyone on the continent. Oh, and this is to say nothing of the city's most famous big-name beers that are great for a "when in Rome" order: Heineken and Amstel.

Amsterdam Summer

Partly due to its close proximity to both Germany and the Czech Republic, this Polish city has a rich brewing heritage, which has recently flourished yet again to become Poland's unofficial capital of craft brewing. Kontynuacja is a great brewpub to start your beer-drinking adventure at as they are renowned for their rotating taps and tasty pub grub.

The German capital is bubbling over with craft breweries these days, with a few of them knocking out stellar versions of the city's signature, ever-so-slightly tart Berliner Weisse. Brewbaker, Vagabund, BRLO and American icon Stone Brewing are some of the best beers and taprooms to seek out during your time in this effervescent city.

Magnificent Cities of Central & Eastern Europe featuring Berlin, Prague, Vienna, Budapest, Krakow & Warsaw

Sure wine may be the first thing that springs to mind when you think of France, but here in the northern part of the country, it's all about beer. Lille is located a short hop from Belgium and its citizens enjoy a rich history of brewing and imbibing hops-based beverages. Spend a night or two here sipping local beers and regional craft beer at great bars like Les 3 Brasseurs or La Capsule and you'll leave pleasantly surprised at your off-the-beaten-path beer discovery.

A pint of beer

Bristol is one of the UK's coolest cities, full stop and it sits atop the leaderboard when it comes to brewing and craft beer as well. Fierce & Noble, Wiper & True and Lost and Grounded are three of the most acclaimed craft breweries in the city, each open to the public on select dates for imbibing sessions.

Bristol Harbourside Walk

Sure, this scintillating city on the sea is known for sangria and cava, but the beer flows here, too. Big-time brewer Estrella Damm is about as synonymous with the city as its soccer team, but craft squads like Garage Brewing, Barcelona Beer Company and La Pirata are giving it a run for its money when it comes to brewing in the city. Visit their tap rooms or one of the many bars around the city pouring craft beers to experience this revolution for yourself.
