Romantic Weekends Away in Europe
With spring in the air a romantic weekend is just the thing to blow away those winter blues. Whether you are celebrating an event or just want to chill out somewhere a little different take a look at these ideas for a romantic getaway in Europe.
The Eternal City is a magnificent place to explore and has lots of romantic places. You can walk through the ancient Forum and spend time in the Coliseum. Or you can recreate a movie moment on the Spanish Steps and go shopping on the Via Corsi. Enjoy a meal on the Piazza Navona and marvel at the treasures of the Vatican. But if you plan to return you’ll need to throw a coin in the Trevi Fountain just like the tradition.
Edinburgh is one of the best places in Scotland to spend a weekend. You’ll enjoy the Old Town with its closes and narrow alleys leading up to Edinburgh Castle. Or you can relax in a seafood restaurant and enjoy the city’s famous cuisine. Why not explore Holyrood Palace, once home to Mary Queen of Scots. And for a fabulous view climb up Arthur’s Seat for the sunrise over the Edinburgh skyline.
The South of France is popular all year round but head to Carcassonne with its famous old town for a romantic setting. You can visit the Cathar museums and walk around the ramparts here. Enjoy a glass of wine in a restaurant with delicious local food. Or, take a boat and head down the Canal du Midi to Montpelier and enjoy a day on the water.
Europe is full of romantic destinations for a weekend away. Where will you go to celebrate the coming of spring?
