Note: One of the joys of traveling is meeting other travelers. So it goes with travel blogging and writing that a joy of doing this work is meeting other people who write about travel! We were fortunate to connect with Mary Davis, a freelance writer who offered to write a post on her recent experience about great places to travel for young couples interested in a little bit of romance. Enjoy!

Looking for a romantic getaway? Want a special location for a very special occasion? Europe offers some of the best romantic getaways for young couples on the planet. Here are my top 5 destinations: 

Paris

There is a reason they call Paris the City of Love, and you have to go there to discover why. Stroll with your amour along the Seine River, eat at lovely and elegant restaurants and tour some of the world’s best art museums. For the perfect nightcap, take a trip to the twinkling Eiffel Tower, flickering in the darkness.

Vienna

Vienna is easy to fall in love with. Take a stroll down her narrow streets and admire her seductive Baroque palaces and you will feel the love in the air. Don’t miss the Schonbrunn Palace, and make sure to wander all around the cobblestone streets of the old quarters, where you will find some of the most quaint and romantic cafes, restaurants and coffee shops.

If you’re looking for romance, head to the southernmost region in Italy. Try sunset cruising through the Egadi islands or a helicopter flight over Mount Etna, Europe’s largest active volcano. The food in Sicily is an adventure in itself and your taste buds will be thanking you. You can easily find many affordable lovely villas and holiday apartments in Sicily: located on the beach or in the mountains they can almost guarantee a unique, comfort and unforgettable holiday. 

Santorini

Don’t forget your camera when you visit Santorini, because the photo opportunities are stunning. Spend your vacation lounging on one of the island’s red sand beaches or sipping wine at one of the famous vineyards. Don’t miss the gorgeous sunset at Oia, a unique experience that will cost you nothing. You will get a lovely tan on the white sand beaches and eat some of the best seafood in the Mediterranean. And don’t forget to taste the various varieties of olives and feta cheese!

Crete

Another Greek island, with a totally different landscape and culture than Santorini. From outdoor adventures to leisurely days on the beach, there is something every couple will love. The adventurers can explore the massive palm forests of Lasithi and the beach lovers can spend hours upon hours coming the pristine shores. In the evening, get a romantic table for two at a traditional taverna and enjoy the sea breeze and famous fresh fish cuisine.
