Love Is All Around Europe—Can You Feel It?
Lovers and lovers of love will find that Europe comes alive this winter. From romantic sights to sensual tastes, get your hearts racing together.
Is there a more romantic place to spend Valentine’s Day than in France? They say Paris is for lovers and how could it not be? This glittering city offers more ways to fall than you ever thought possible. Take in the sunrise from a sidewalk café along the Champs-Elysee before a romantic stroll along the River Seine. Or dive into some delightful ice cream at Berthillon at Île Saint-Louis, before stealing a kiss at the Pont des Arts at sunset.
Looking for a romantic urban escape? Lisbon is filled with magic and beauty. Take the ferry across the Tagus from Cais do Sodré to Cachilhas. Head to Santuario de Cristo Rei for picture-perfect views of Lisbon. Share spoonfuls of pasteis de nata at Belém’s Antiga Casa de Pasteis de Belém. Or just snuggle up in the deep leather armchairs of the Solar do Vinho do Porto for a port wine tasting.
There’s a lot more to fall in love with in Europe this winter. Experience one or experience them all. We have wonderful offers throughout Europe to help you start your planning.
