Venice is a city unlike any other. You can fall in love with Venice just by having a gondola ride. No matter how often you’ve seen it in photos and films, the real thing is more dreamlike than you could imagine, with canals where streets should be and water shimmers everywhere.
The fabulous palaces and churches reflect centuries of history in what was a wealthy trading center between Europe and the Orient. Getting lost in the narrow lanes is a classic part of exploring Venice, but at some point you’ll almost surely end up in Piazza San Marco, where tourists and locals meet for a coffee. Good time to visit Venice is late April through early June.
Paris is one of the most beautiful cities on earth. It can be truly appreciated when you go on a stroll that has one stunning view after another, from the epic Eiffel Tower to the regal Jardin des Tuileries to the petite cafés bursting onto the sidewalks. Beyond the city’s visual appeal, the cultural riches of the French capital are unparalleled. Whether you choose to explore the historic, fashion-conscious, traditional, or unconventional and arty sides of Paris, one thing is certain: the City of Light will always captivate the love you are looking for.
Sintra was once the summer residence of kings and aristocrats, and its late-medieval palace illustrates the royal wealth and power of its time. Sintra’s history is so important that the entire area is a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. The region, along with Queluz, is flooded with palaces and monasteries, but do take time to enjoy the view as well. You can hike up to Pena Palace, just 2 1/2 miles south of Sintra, but it’s more fun to take a horse-drawn carriage. The palace is almost like a Disney fantasy work that completes with a beautiful end. It is a great way to celebrate your love in royalty.
Florence is loved for its architecture, food and art. As once it was said, “Tuscany is the garden of Europe and Florence is the flower in the garden.” – Florence is a delicate beauty – its calm, plain palaces built in local stone are very large. Buildings take on a certain elegance when day breaks and when the sun sets. A walk along the Arno offers views that haven’t much changed in the last 700 years. While navigating Piazza della Signoria, it is always packed with tourists. There’s a reason why everyone seems to be here, as , it’s the heart of the city, and home to the Uffizi – the world’s finest storehouse of Italian Renaissance art.
