Jul 23, 2013 —  There's no need for a strike from Cupid's arrow to get in the mood for romance. Every once in a while, even the most frigid guy or gal can heat up to a lukewarm temperature by planning a sentimental evening with their significant other.  

European non-romantics need not worry about spending too much time being gushy and creative. There are multiple enchanting neighborhoods across the continent that offer coupled visitors quiet cafés, candlelit dinners, scenic park views, and other ingredients crucial to an amorous experience.

Long walks on the beach are on the menu in Antibes in the French Riviera. The sandy shores beyond the area’s picturesque ancient walls provide a perfect place to recapture an old flame or start a new one. Meanwhile, Jordaan in Amsterdam offers a unique opportunity for a fairytale day featuring strolls past peaceful canals, novelty boutiques, art studios, and a host of swanky wine bars and cocktail lounges.

Over in Madrid, the cobblestone streets and medieval walls characteristic of La Latina and Lavapiés look like set pieces in the next epic romantic film. As if that wasn’t enough, local restaurants like El Ventorrillo – built on a high plateau amid a network of lush green gardens and parks – supply majestic views asking for sweet conversation.

Not much of a Romeo? Don’t sweat the lovey-dovey stuff anymore. Just head to one of these places and let the ambiance do the work.
