Here are our top picks for the perfect city breaks couples should consider heading into the summer of 2024.

Florence

Up next is Florence and this is a city that not everybody thinks of when they think of Italy. Usually, people think of Milan and Rome but if you want to be different, Florence is the place to be. 

Florence is home to the Statue of David, which is something everybody needs to see. This magnificent statue is carved out of marble and has been around since the 1500s. Then you have the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, also known as Brunelleschi’s Dome. Here, you can climb 463 stairs before seeing the stunning views of the whole city. The food is very affordable here, although you can expect to spend on your accommodation if you want something nice for you and your partner.

Geneva

Geneva is another city to visit if you want a great getaway with your partner. The only issue with this one is that it is the most expensive city on the list.

Geneva is very different from the other destinations mentioned. It can be a great skiing holiday for you and your partner or you can explore the Old Town and the birthplace of watchmaking. You can also visit the Reformation Wall. These giant statues are spectacular and the reason for this monument is to represent that Geneva was the meeting point for all followers of the Reformation during the 16th and 17th centuries.

Budapest

Budapest is a cold city in February but despite the freezing temperatures, it is still a popular romantic getaway. With thermal baths and wonderful spas to warm you up, it is the place to forget the cold weather back home. If anything, this city will make you enjoy the cold temperatures.

With neo-gothic parliament buildings, dancing through the night in the ruined bars, spectacular castles, a hospital in the rock, and the national gallery, Budapest is the place to be. This city has so much to offer for a short romantic getaway.

London

Fancy something close to home? Then London could be the perfect place for you to live city life without having to do much travelling. They have nightclubs, fancy food and a huge range of activities; they have something for everyone. Don’t let its size put you off; they have great transport links, such as the famous tube. You will not be short of fun when visiting London. If you fancy driving, you can pre-book city centre car parking spots close to wherever you are staying, such as Knightsbridge or Hyde Park parking. The options are endless.

Vienna

Last but not least, Vienna. It is considered to be one of the European capitals of culture. With architecture that seems to be crafted by the gods and enthralling museums, it is easy to understand why.

Vienna is a more relaxing getaway and is more about taking in what’s around you. There are plenty of stunning rooftop bars where you can enjoy a romantic evening with your partner as you both gaze at this truly glorious city.

Final Thoughts

There are so many options for a couple’s city break. Go somewhere you can have some guaranteed fun and that is easily accessible, whether you decide to fly over to Vienna or drive to London. To make the most of it, be sure to book things before, from the city centre car parks to restaurants.
