Everyone in this world has the internal desire to share love with their partners in some romantic destinations or places. When love is in air, there’s a desire to share it with the world, and it’s a big world out there. Whether you want to shout your love from the top of a mountain or while snorkeling with underwater creatures, there are plenty of places across the continents to proclaim your connection. Here’s a selection of some of the most romantic destinations on the planet where you can create enough memories to last a lifetime
- Paris, France
The Eiffel Tower and the Arc de Triomphe, though glorious, have been done to death. The most fascinating location for love to bloom is the heart-achingly picturesque Jardin du Luxembourg, or the Luxembourg Gardens. Great writers such as Balzac, Sartre and Baudelaire have been moved to words here.
- Schönbrunn Palace, Vienna , Austria
Austria small piece of land surrounded by water all around is a lovely destination. Along the Wien River in Vienna stands Schloss Schönbrunn, a 1,441-room imperial building and grounds that date back to the 16th century. With gardens in glorious blooms and exquisite sculptures, the panoramic palace has inspired lovers, painters, poets and writers. Unsurprisingly, Schönbrunn means “beautiful spring.”
- London, Great Britain
Many a romance has been ignited in London, the city on the Thames. A private capsule on the London Eye, the city’s most recognizable modern structure offers, literally, a bird’s-eye view of the city. Say the magic words when you’re up in the air.
- Agra, India
Who hasn’t felt romantic at the Taj Mahal? The monument in white marble is a laudation to love itself. Arrive early to brush aside the tight security, the blazing heat of the stones under a summer sun, and the throngs of tourists and visit the Taj in spring, when a slight haze still drapes the marble mausoleum at dawn. Pause a moment. The love-cries of sarus cranes echo from the fields across the Yamuna, the chains of elephants clank and the bells of camels chime, and you can travel back in time to the Mughal Empire, and dream again of a love that lived forever.
- Verona, Italy
Shakespeare, who told one of the most enduring love stories of all time, found inspiration in Verona. This city in northeastern Italy was the location for his tragedy, Romeo and Juliet. Casa di Guiletta (Juliet’s House), with its telltale balcony, is one of the city’s most visited attractions and the shrine of smitten couples. One spoiler, though: it’s a make-believe story. The story has no connection with the bard, and the balcony was added many years later. But if it is love that brought you to Verona, make time for the city’s many other attractions such as the Arena, the Basilica of St Zeno, and climb the top of the Lamberti tower for great city views. Several airlines fly to Catullo airport, 12 km from the Verona, from major European cities.
