6. Paris

Romantic Escape

Parisian culture seems inherently designed for romance, with countless settings tailor-made for those only-in-the-movies-type kisses: Manicured gardens with perfect make-out benches lie around every corner; lamp-lit pedestrian quays along the Seine invite stolen smooches; and majestic plazas and tucked-away squares like Place des Vosges offer storybook backdrops for marriage proposals. A perch atop any of the city's famous bridges (ponts) are also sure to get your heart racing: Linger on the city's oldest bridge, Pont Neuf; check out the animated arts-and-music scene of Pont des Arts; or take in the phenomenal views of the Eiffel Tower from the elaborate Pont Alexandre III. Undoubtedly, for some, the height of romance can be found at the top of the Eiffel Tower itself; coordinate your viewing with one of Paris' lovely sunsets, and the city will blush pink right along with you.
