Whether you’re planning a romantic trip with your better half, a far-off tropical proposal, a dream honeymoon, or even your destination wedding, one thing to always consider is the photo opportunities! Keeping physical proof (even if just in your phone) of your most special moments will make the memories last forever and live on for future generations. So, you better make sure those photos are breathtaking! To help you in this quest, we’ve compiled a list of the most Instagrammable destinations in the world – perfect for romance travel!
1 – Paris, France
We had to start with a classic: the European capital of sophistication, Paris. Nothing beats the iconic couple photo standing on a bridge with the Eiffel Tower in the distance. You know the one. You’ve probably seen it all over your Instagram feed. And even in countless movies! It makes for beautiful momentos. But the city of love has many more photography locations to offer. Some that you may not have thought of. From quaint and colorful little pâtisseries all over the city to beautiful riverside landscapes and out-of-this-world verdant gardens, Paris is the best when it comes to capturing romance. The city hotels in Paris are stunning, considering that many at one time in history were petite palaces for the local aristocracy. Many with original architectural elements and even some original and gorgeous elevators!
So, pop a bottle of champagne, strike a pose, and tap the camera shutter in the glamorous city of lights.
2 – Alps
There’s nothing more majestic than nature. And nothing will inspire more wonder in a photo than the glory of the sun rising behind a grand Alpine mountain. Witnessing the immensity of the Alps is a bucket list must, and when there, snapping a few photos is mandatory.
Trust us; nothing screams romance like a cozy, warm fireplace and under-blanket cuddles while surrounded by a mountain of white. And the best part: some of Europe’s most beautiful countries are home to the spectacular mountain range. If you love wine, pasta, and a vibrant culture, head to the Dolomites in Italy. The Swiss Alps offer unmatched landscapes and colorfully picturesque small towns. And if you dream of romantic France, make sure to visit the French Alps for a completely different experience of the glamorous country.
This destination is especially unique in that it offers year-round activities for all levels of outdoor adventure.
