Forget expensive rings, necklaces or cars! Sometimes, the right present can be made of small details. Like kissing your loved one while visiting these romantic places. Legend says that people who kiss here will live as one forever!
“The City of Lights” has many romantic places. One of them is the world-famous Eiffel Tower, where you can take an elevator to the third level and kiss while the city sparkles at your feet. We recommend going there after the sun goes down and the French capital starts to light up. Or go to the Rodin Museum. There, you can re-create the ambiance depicted in the 19th-century sculpture “The Kiss” and then take a romantic stroll in the museum’s rose garden.
The renowned Santa Monica Pier needs no introduction. More than a place to have fun with your family and friends it can also be a romantic venue if you know how to make the most of it. Hop on the Ferris wheel and, once you’re up, enjoy the panoramic views of Los Angeles and the ocean. What could be more romantic than kissing your loved one surrounded by such a view? Lovers Point at Pacific Grove, that’s what! Best enjoyed at sunrise. Facing East, this is one of the few places on the West Coast where you can admire the sun rising over the water.
Venice and Verona, Italy
Another recommended place is the Bridge of Sighs in Venice. An Italian superstition says that if one kisses his / her sweetheart on a gondola at sunset under this 17th-century bridge they will be guaranteed eternal love. If you like adding some history in the mix head over to Verona, more precisely under Juliet’s balcony.
New York City, USA
The “Big Apple” is one of the world’s most visited destinations, be it summer or winter. In a city full of skyscrapers, there’s no better place to enjoy New York than the Empire State Building. Whether you’re going up on the 86th floor or enjoy the entire ride to 102th, your sweetheart will surely be impressed. If you’d like as few people as possible around you, go there late in the evening. The iconic skyscraper is open until 2 AM for those who want to enjoy New York from above and kiss while doing this (last elevator goes up at 1:15 AM).
This city in the center of Mexico might not sound as exotic as Cancun or Puerto Vallarta, but it features one of the most romantic places on Earth called “Alley of the kiss”. Legend has it that two lovers living on opposite sides of this alley once perished there side-by-side. According to locals, their ghosts have been seen ever since kissing on the balconies. Nowadays it is believed that lovers who kiss on the third step will be rewarded with many years of happiness.
