Now that vaccinated British tourists no longer have to take a test after arrival in the UK, international travel has become far easier. Which spots are the most romantic in Europe?


Research from WeThrift found that the gorgeous Venice canals in Italy was the world’s most romantic tourist attraction.

The research looked at the amount of Tripadvisor reviews that used the word ‘romantic’ or ‘couples’.

A gondola ride around Venice’s seductive canal system could be the perfect romantic trip abroad.

Couples visiting Venice could also visit the Isola di Murano. The series of islands are linked by Venice’s bridges.

One reviewer said: “The island is absolutely beautiful” while another said it was a “special experience”.
