6. Orange Tree Garden Aventine Hill
The Orange Garden on Aventine Hill is the perfect place for a bottle of Italian wine, a picnic supper and a ring. This is a perfect place to have a tranquil moment with your lover, away from the troubles of the city streets.
7. Neuschwanstein Castle
Located in the small village of Hohenschwangau near Füssen, this castle is surrounded by dense forest, hiking trails and is one of the most popular destinations along Germany’s ‘Romantic Road’. If you want the full effect, take your partner to the arienbrücke bridge, just a 15-minute walk away, the 1845 bridge is built right between two sheer cliffs, and it’s where you’ll find the most spectacular view of the castle.
Santorini is well known for being the place with the most beautiful sunsets and the most envy-inducing Instagram shots. With only 470 permanent residents, Imerovigli is known for its peaceful tranquillity and its quintessential Greek white and blue-domed buildings – you’re almost spoilt for choice on places to propose! We’d recommend Skaros Rock;, after a mildly challenging walk to a peak you’ll be rewarded with the perfect sunset/rise depending on when you go.
9. Lake of Love
Tucked away at the southern end of Bruges is the beautiful area known as “Minnewater”. The centre piece is the “Lake of Love” and” Lovers bridge”. It’s a great place to be with someone you love! A very tranquil location within the confines of the city. So serene and peaceful. A wonderful place to relax with families or loved ones.
10. Grotta Palazzese
Polignano A Mare, Italy
Nestled on the Valle d’Itria is Polignano A Mare, a tiny town surrounded by rocky cliff coastlines that are entwined with winding, cobbled streets stuffed with restaurants, bars and other delights. The shining star is without a doubt the world-famous Grotta Palazzese; carved out of limestone rocks with a view of the Adriatic, this restaurant offers an unparalleled dining experience. Dimly lit tables add to the ambience; a storybook way to ask for someone’s hand in marriage and come on, who could say no when you pop the question here?
11. Northern Lights
You’ll be hard-pressed to find anything more memorable than proposing under the Northern Lights in Iceland. The best time to see the Northern Lights is from September to April when there are clear skies.
12. Mljet Island
Mljet Island could arguably one of the least known Croatian islands; much of the island is covered in forests and fields, occasionally dotted with the odd fishing village here and there. Just down from Kortia village is Saplunara, where the beaches of Velika, Mala Saplunara and Blace are surrounded by dense, lush forest. This secluded patch of paradise is easy to enjoy all by yourself, even in the most tourist-heavy months – so wait for the perfect moment and ask the all-important question, ‘Beer?’
