Quoting laurellm

Could anyone let me know any romantic european cities for couples on a weekend break?

Prague - castles, cathedrals, cobbled streets and colourful houses are found there.
Krakow - Europe's largest medieval town square.
Venice - a taste of beauty in all its forms: people, food, architecture, art, gondola rides, history and landscape.
Paris - It’s a city filled with hedonistic pleasures; wine, food, fashion, art, architecture and music.

I think Paris is good city for romantic breaks

I would say Ghent in Belgium. I went there on the recommendation of a couple of people on this forum in February for my girlfriend’s 30th birthday and it was beautiful.

It has lots to see and do, beautiful architecture and plenty of museums and nice bars and restaurants and it is not too touristy and is only a couple of hours from London on the Eurostar.

You should try Rome obviously, or maybe Lyon, Brussels, Venice, Amsterdam... Many Western european capitals can be romantic and extremely fascinating!

It really depends on what you would like to see and do, if climate/food are important to you, etc.
In my humble opinion, i can't picture any european city as a good break for a couple, even those cities who are said to be romantic such as Paris, Venice, Barcelona or Prague (just to name a few). I have been to those cities and if it's true you can fully enjoy them with your partner it is also true that there are millions of people living and working there, so leading their daily existences in a fast-paced reality that you'll be confronted with.

This is why i would go for a small town or a place close to the nature instead (be it an island, a mountain, a lake...). I think an escape to a mediterranean island or an alpine mountain retreat could be great experiences to live with a lover.

Rome, Venice or Sienna definitely!
The food, wine and scenery are stunning in each of these places. I have travelled to each one during the winter with my husband and they are all lovely and quiet out of season.

Venice dosen’t really need any introduction: wines, music, painting, world class dining all that endeavoring to add spice to your romantic evening.

Try any of the European countries. They all are romantic countries.
