Everyone sees Paris as the city of love, but France’s iconic capital isn’t the only incredible international destination that promises romance and a whirlwind city break. Here are some of the best destinations for couples who are looking for a holiday in a dynamic city.
When in Rome – do as the Romans do. And one thing the Romans do magnificently is romance.
Live out your dreams of Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck falling in love in Italy’s beautiful capital, with iconic landmarks around every corner. You can live ‘la dolce vita’, exploring the historic ruins, sharing Italy’s famous culinary delights from pasta to gelato together or visiting iconic landmarks like the Trevi Fountain, Piazza Navona and the Spanish Steps.
New Orleans, USA
Perhaps best visited in February when Mardi Gras takes over the city, New Orleans fuses an abundance of cultures together, inspired by the French, Spanish, Caribbean and African influences of its founders and residents.

Quebec City, Canada
European history and charm take a trip across the Atlantic to Canada, where cobblestone streets are more common than poutine places. Infused with French culture, romance is in every corner of the city, with horse-drawn carriage rides available to tour Old Quebec and indulge in art, culture and of course, delicious food.
Enjoyed by famous lovers Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, Dubrovnik’s medieval walled city and views onto tranquil, clear blue water is perfect for romance seekers looking for sunshine.
