When speaking of a romantic destination for a weekend, there are at least two cities that stand out quickly: Paris and Venice. But in reality, many destinations are available to you if you want to offer a romantic getaway. 

With the proliferation of low-cost air links but also Smartbox type gifts, planning a romantic city-trip has never been easier. Finally, the hard part is knowing where you want to go! To help you, here are our 7 favorite destinations for a break for two.

Prague, a European jewel

Romantic weekend in Prague


This city is one of the most beautiful in Europe with its historic center listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and its many exceptional monuments. From the church of Notre-Dame du Tyn to the astronomical clock passing by the bridge Saint-Charles or the castle, the discoveries to do to two are not lacking. And to end your stay in Prague in style, a dinner cruise on the Vltava will leave you with an unforgettable memory.

Dubrovnik, further but so beautiful

Old city of Dubrovnik


Dubrovnik, Croatia, offers an exceptional setting for a romantic weekend. Its Mediterranean charm is undeniable and a morning walk on the ramparts allows to have a breathtaking view. Hotels and restaurants are plentiful and affordable and it is a perfect city to pick a beautiful jewel of seashells, pearls or corals.

Florence, as romantic as Venice

Ponte Vecchio in Florence


A little less famous than Venice but more affordable (though), Florence is a perfect city for a romantic weekend. It is full of fabulous buildings, works of art and its city center alone is worth a romantic weekend. Il Duomo, the Ponte Vecchio, the Galleria degli Uffizi museum, and the Boboli gardens are just some of the sites to discover for two, on foot or by horse-drawn carriage.

Lisbon, the most fashionable

Weekend idea for couples: Lisbon


The Portuguese capital is an easily accessible destination for a weekend for two without breaking the bank. Trams from another era, colorful facades, cobbled streets, beaches nearby will leave you with unforgettable memories. 

It is absolutely necessary to take advantage of it to taste at two pasteis de nata, a succulent local pastry.

Annecy, without going beyond the borders

Old town of Annecy


The Venice of the Alps is a destination of choice for a romantic weekend in France. Channels, a castle, a lake, the mountains nearby make Annecy a very pleasant city to discover for two.

Amsterdam, not only for a trip with friends

Colorful houses in Amsterdam


Leaving for a weekend in Amsterdam is a change of scenery guaranteed at a lower cost. And do not think that a city-break on the spot is a simple moment of debauchery! 

With its astonishing architecture, its canals, its colorful houses, its many cultural attractions, Amsterdam will make you want to return regularly!

Budapest, the other pearl of the Danube

Szechenyi Baths in Budapest


Along the Danube, the Hungarian capital is one of the most beautiful cities in Europe (with Prague, mentioned earlier). Born from the meeting of Buda and Pest, it is home to many monuments including the Hungarian parliament, the largest in Europe but also the Szechenyi Lanchid bridge, the fishermen’s bastion or the Palace of Budavar. Many baths are scattered in the city and this millenary city is full of wonders.
