From the French Riviera to Italy’s Amalfi Coast, Paris, Barcelona, and Rome, this is a romantic journey crossed three superlative countries. Think chocolate tasting, Catalan dining, Michelangelo’s frescos, colorful houses on the coast and wine chateaux in the mountains. The pace is relaxed – three days each in five destinations – and there’s always a new place to walk hand in hand.
Paris – Romance in the City of Lights
Aromas float through Parisian neighborhoods, coffee, chocolate, and the sultry scent of a French evening. Footsteps echo off the cobbles. Small doors tempt you into bistros and bars. The sound of a street musician greets you at a corner, an acoustic guitar that fades as you keep walking hand in hand. Paris is the most romantic of all cities and there’s no better introduction than walking without a plan, especially when your hotel is in such a central arrondissement. Today you’re greeted at the airport and transferred privately to the hotel. The rest of the day is free to explore on your own.

The romance flows in Europe’s great cities. You will stroll along the River Seine, Parisian neighborhoods, and the cobbles of Ancient Rome. In Barcelona, you will experience the food, the architecture, the atmosphere of centuries past. It wouldn’t be a romantic vacation in Europe without time on the Mediterranean. Lounge on the promenades of the French Riviera, where al fresco terraces look out onto lulling yachts. Gaze into the water from the cliffs of Sorrento, where colorful houses meet the sunset. This itinerary has been handcrafted for those seeking romance in old-world Europe. With three days each in five different destinations, you have time to take it slow and explore at the pace that romance deserves.
Your hotels are centrally located, close to legendary sights but tucked away, often on cobbled streets. Travel from Paris to Nice by high-speed train, crossing most of France in just five hours, a beautiful journey for a picnic and a view. Rome to Naples is also by train, a window onto landscapes you would miss by flying. The other destinations are connected by direct flights. Local guides lead the discovery in each destination, introducing you to their cities and taking you out to nearby wonders – the Palace of Fontainebleau, Cannes, Montserrat, Pompeii and so many other places that await your discovery.
Start with three days in Paris. Go chocolate tasting in Saint-Germain, soak up the iconic sights, dine in local bistros and take a day trip to Fontainebleau. In Nice, you spend the evenings lounging on the French Riviera, with a day in Cannes and a day in mountain vineyards. Barcelona is another city for romantic dining. Indulge in the food and the architecture, hear the choir singing in Montserrat, and find more promenades to walk. You’re surrounded by legends in Rome – The Colosseum, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain – and have a day dedicated to Vatican City and its art. Tour Naples on route to your final stop, the cliffside town of Sorrento. Sunset colors reflect off the Mediterranean, and you settle into a final three nights of amorous luxury, just the two of you in one of Europe’s grandest destinations.
