Some may see this as the cliché choice, but Paris encompasses everything you need for the perfect romantic holiday. Journey to the top of the Eiffel Tower for a breathtaking view or take an evening stroll in the gardens below and watch it sparkle. Cruise the River Seine, take in the beauty of the candle lit Notre Dame and get cosy with a glass of vino in one of many pretty French restaurants.

Amsterdam, Holland

With a village-like charm and a vast network of sleepy, scenic canals, Amsterdam wins for laidback, understated romance. Drift along the tree-lined canal in a rowing boat, hire a bicycle built for two, discover hidden gems at the local marketplace, and lose yourself in the cobbled streets lined with quirky shops.

With sumptuous pizza and pasta dishes, gorgeous wine and scrumptious deserts, Italian food is all about sharing – perfect for a romantic meal. And with a beautiful backdrop like Rome, you may never want to leave. Wander the historic paths of the Roman Forum, make a wish at the Trevi Fountain and take in an enchanting view of the city above the Piazza de Popolo serenaded by a busking guitarist.

One of the lesser known European capital cities, this hidden Swiss gem is always picture-postcard ready. Bern is a captivating city surrounded by snow-capped mountains and vast gardens – a complete breath of fresh air compared with other crowded, bustling capitals in Europe. Wander the streets of Old Town, enjoy the natural beauty of the Mountain Park and splash out on Swiss chocolate and handmade treasures at the local shops.
