The most romantic places on earth Paris - France Appropriately nicknamed City of Love, Paris is the romantic destination you've been longing for. When you've climbed the Eiffel Tower and walked the Champs-Elysees, we recommend renting a scooter or vintage Citroen to explore the narrow back streets. Get stuck into the city's highly evolved cafÃ© culture, take a stroll along the River Seine, then have a leisurely picnic in one of the city's many green spaces.

For the most romantic experience, hire a car and travel along the coastline.

If it's a glimpse into the passionate world of tango you want, head to La Boca.
