The proclaimed ‘Most Romantic City’ in the World may surprise you. Actually, no. It won’t. (Hint: It’s in France.)
The folks at WeLoveDates.com have compiled a cute, interactive map of the world’s Most Romantic Cities – from Canada down south, across the Atlantic and all the way around the world.
No. 1 on this list shouldn’t surprise you, nor should Canada’s lone entry. (Although, we’d argue they missed a few in the Great White North!)
Here they are, from 25th to first:
25) San Diego
Helplessly Californian. Effortlessly cool.
A limerick or two. And some love.
Australia’s cultural capital is the getaway that brings you right back home.
22) Los Angeles
‘Fly me to the moon, let me play among the stars…’
21) Cape Town
Says Lonely Planet, “The Mother City, home to soaring Table Mountain, golden beaches and bountiful vineyards, is an old pro at capturing people’s hearts.”
Morocco’s exciting maze of markets and the medina.
19) Charleston, South Carolina
Southern comfort. Southern hospitality. Table for two, please.
India’s Pink City.
17) New York City
The scene of probably every romantic comedy you’ve ever loved. It’s well-known and overplayed, but for a good reason.
Perhaps Great Britain’s most gorgeous city, it’s tucked away way up north – but it’s certainly not hiding.
15) San Sebastian, Spain
Seafood, sun, and the Spanish earth.
14) Bath, England
As soothing as the activity that shares its name.
13) Wellington, New Zealand
It’s home, a world away.
Take San Francisco. Add Europe on top. Voila.
France crossed the Atlantic and made a home here.
Gothic and gorgeous, this Czech capital has been a favourite of travellers for a long, long time.
The center of Tuscany. The heart of Europe.
King’s Landing is enchanting and classical.
One of Europe’s backpacker favourites, it’s tremendously exciting and very, very beautiful.
6) Buenos Aires
The name Buenos Aires translates to “Good Airs” in English. Breathe them in…
When you say, “I’d love to visit Old Europe,” Bruges is what you’re talking about.
I say Japan, you think Tokyo? Maybe you should add Kyoto to the tip of your tongue.
Canals, fedoras, no cars. It’s unapologetically vintage, intentionally Italian.
Australia’s capital. One of the world’s most enchanting harbours. A big, big city – but a small one, too.
Well, of course.
