France and romance go together like a kiss and Pont des Arts in Paris. Many have placed love locks on this pedestrian bridge, and so should you. Paris is perfect for romantic getaways and its attractions cater to all tastes. Stroll the Saint-Martin canal or the flowery alleys of the Père Lachaise Cemetery. Have a lunch in a typical French bistro or a dinning cruise on the Seine River. The artsy ones should visit the artists of Montmartre after a visit to the Musée de la Vie Romantique.

For love birds worldwide, Venice needs no introduction. Could it be the idyllic gondola rides or the ephemeral nature of a city that could soon end up submerged? Venice deserve to be the place where you found love. Treat your significant other to an escapade you will both never forget.

Don’t forget to lay back in a waterside wine bar to savor the moment with the special someone. It takes two to enjoy Venice; be sure it is with your better half.
