I'm kinda partial to
interlaken switzerland - Google Search

living here one winter was grandly romantic (Only residents of a 12 unit Chalet, with our choice if any of the units !! falling snow, chiming church bells, donging cattle and sheep bells, weather changing (below our view) many times / hour, ski slope ~ 2 meters out the door) Diablerets tourisme - hiver, winter 3200m / été, summer 1200m


I have been VERY fortunate to end up in several lodges being the only guests and given free reign. Last time was a hot springs lodge in Colorado. I was impressed, even had free access to kitchen and refrigerator. :0

Castro Street, San Francisco.

I'm packing my leather duds and taking along my knee pads.

May sound crazy but Niagara falls in the dead of winter is really cool. You need a room with view though. LOL

On our Honeymoon, my wife and I went from Guatemala to Uruguay on the bus (it took 4 months). It doesn't get any more romantic than that.

I camped at Lake Bled a few months ago. What a delightful area.

The Loire Valley in France with the numerous chateaux is seriously romantic.

Actually, PARIS is really very romantic ...

... sipping a cup of cafe au lait at the Cafe Deux Magots on The Left Bank

... climbing the steps of Montmartre

... strolling along the Seine River and admiring the Notre Dame Cathedral

tres, tres romantique!!!!!

HansE, It's ambiance and festive atmosphere and music and coziness...and twinkle lights. Twinkle lights are for kissing

I agree with what some of the posters said. It's not the place but the person you're with who makes the trip / moment romantic. I have so many romantic moments with my husband: driving down the Pacific Highway from San Francisco to Carmel, wrapping my arms around his waist while we're cruising down Bermuda on a rented 50-cc motorbike (for those who know bikes, this is about as lame a bike as you can get, but I still find it romantic!), sitting in my own backyard with him beside me, etc..etc..

Take the Ferrari for a picnic in the Tuscan hills with a bottle of local wine, some fresh baked bread and some antipasta.
