Time for a Romantic Break?


Is it time you took your better half for a romantic break away from the stresses of everyday life and boring old routines? Then you should consider Europe as the destination to visit as there are lots of old cities worth exploring. Coming from Europe or the UK, it is also economical to fly and won’t cost you the earth.

Paris is seriously romantic for anyone in a new relationship, long-time lovers, or married couples, the city is full of suprises and glamour that is sure to captivate even the world-weary amongst you. A moonlight stroll along the River Seine, a trip up the Eiffel Tower, and an afternoon spent in a wine hazed bistro are just some of the options available to fill your weekend.

Paris is the sort of place visitors return to again and again, whether it is because they need to have one more look at the famous monuments, or desperately want to visit that interesting art gallery there was no time for on the last visit, or just want to eat more delicious French food and drink wine.

One of the most popular sights to see whilst in Paris is, of course, The Eiffel Tower. Don’t miss the new restaurant that’s just opened on the first floor where you can enjoy pastries and ice-cream, or Le Jules Verne in the evening with its ‘old time’ feel, elegance, and stunning views of Paris. The views are obviously the main reasons people go up the Tower and really it’s the ideal place to see the city at its best with its wealth of monuments, the famous Trocadero Gardens, the River Seine, and Iena Bridge.

The glamourous Champs Elysees is another sight not to miss out on if you do find yourself in the city one weekend. The whole area is brimming with cafes, art galleries, museums, luxury shopping, and monuments that will keep you busy the whole day. And Notre Dame Cathedral offers a dreamy experience with its stunning French Gothic architecture, sculpture and stained glass windows to admire. There are plenty of places to stay in the city centre if you want to be close to everything, just look up Paris accommodation online.

If you have more than a weekend then how about combining two beautiful cities in one trip? A 5 day trip to Paris and then onto Rome gives you enough time to savour all the sights, and soak up the atmosphere. Rome is a city for those interested in both the ancient and the modern and is, without a doubt, a strong competitor to Paris for romance and glamour. Spend a few days exploring the ancient ruins of The Forum and Coliseum, your lunchtime hanging out in one of many delightful cafes, and shop until you drop.

A visit to Rome isn’t complete without a trip to the famous Trevi Fountain, a major attraction for visitors due to its astounding beauty it dominates the small Trevi Square with its statue of Neptune, god of the sea. The Spanish Steps is also a famous tourist destination with a lively and enchanting atmosphere buzzing with people, designer stores and upmarket bars and restaurants.

Romance is in the air everywhere in Rome, even around the Vatican there are a dazzling collection of palaces and museums displaying attention-grabbing renaissance and religious art treasures. An exceptional spiritual haven, it emanates pomp and glamour and any visit has to include the notable Sistine Chapel.

Spend your time tasting the delicious traditional ice cream at a parlour or drinking coffee in one of the many pavement cafes, stroll hand in hand through its picturesque city parks, or picnic at Palatine Hill and Vila Borghese.
