The summer is finally here so there is no better time to book a romantic getaway for you and that special person. The stresses of everyday life naturally take their toll on relationships, so every now and then we all need to take a nice break to relax, have fun and take in the sights of one of Europe’s finest cities.

Europe is full of places that ooze history and romanticism, which makes it the ideal continent for a love-filled vacation with your partner.

Before you jet off on your romantic getaway, you should both apply for your European Health Insurance Card or renew the card if you already have one.

Here are three places in Europe that are ideal destinations for a romantic break:


The first place that springs to mind when you think of romantic European getaways is Paris and there’s good reason for that. There is so much for couples to do in the French capital, such as visiting the Eiffel Tower followed by a romantic picnic with some of France’s famous wine on a nearby lawn. Paris is a city that needs exploring, so visiting the Arc de Triomphe and the Jardin des Tuileries is a must. While the pair of you are there, it’d also be a real shame not to try some Parisian treats that Laduree has to offer.


Taking a romantic walk down the Italian capital’s cobblestone streets and visiting countless historical sites, such as the Flavian Amphitheatre, is a perfect way to spend a summer’s day in Rome. At night, try some of Rome’s sublime food. The Campo de’ Fiori is full of farmers and fishermen who sell the very best fresh produce.


The capital of England may be a busy city, but that doesn’t take anything away from its charm, making it one of the top choices for couples who are looking for a romantic break. Just walking around London in the sun with your loved one will make you feel as though you’re in a fairytale. From Big Ben to Buckingham Palace, there’s plenty to take in.
