Paris is no longer the most romantic city in Europe. It's been losing this label step by step in a flood of yellow vests, endless strikes and traffic collapse. But Europe has plenty of cities that could win the title! What are some of these? We could name at least three!
1. Seville - Spain
This lively Spanish city is the cradle of the passionate flamenco and it's associated with names such as Carmen or Don Juan. Its dominant feature is the impressive Seville Cathedral with a minaret and the Alcázar Palace Fortress, which is being used by the royal family to this day. When in Seville, make sure to take an the evening stroll along the amazing semicircular Plaza de España and in the adjacent park with decorative lakes and a water canal. If someone asked you to marry them in such a place, would you be able to say NO?
If you're planning to take this big step in your life and want to impress your partner, book a stay in hotel Alfonso XIII, one of the most luxurious hotels in Spain! Grand Deluxe with breakfast for 2 for 2 for 2 nights: approximately CZK 30.000
2. Porto - Portugal
Portugal's second largest city is renowned for the production of the real port wine. Despite being located in an industrial area, it has an indescribably picturesque historic center called Ribeira, which makes a more romantic impression than the winding Montmartre! It's full of churches, monasteries and other historical monuments of almost all architectural styles. And where to experience the greatest romance? We know! In one of the luxury restaurant on the Cais da Ribeira seafront with an ocean view and a glass of excellent port wine!
We recommend the non-traditional hotel Torel Avantgarde. Deluxe Suite for 2 for 2 nights: approximately CZK 25.OOO
3. Florence - Italy
The atmosphere of Florence in Italy is rich with art, culture and romance. It is the cradle of the renaissance and the Piazza della Signoria square with the Neptune Fountain is considered one of the most beautiful town squares in Europe. The Gothic Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore has gained almost as much international fame as the Notre Dame in Paris. And the unique Ponte Vecchio bridge over the river Arno has no competition in Europe! Florence has already been nicknamed the European capital of art, so why not add the label "the most romantic town" too? Sounds about right, what do you say?
And where to indulge in romance paired with luxury? In the hotel Bernini Palace near Ponte Vecchio. A luxury apartment for two with breakfast for 2 nights: approximatel CZK 49.000
