They say that Paris is the most romantic city in the world, but I really want to put out a suggestion for the Italian city of Venice to be the winner in this category! I been to SO many romantic European cities. Europe is apparently a very romantic continent… And the city I remember most to be a sitting-on-a-sidewalk-to-kiss-and-cuddle-kind-of-city, is Venice! The ironic part of me being in Venice was that I was single when I was there. I wasted the Romanticness (pretty sure that´s a word…) on hanging out with friends instead…. sigh.
Romantic Venice… or romantic campground outside of the city. With friends. And Bacardi Breezers. And panties. It was great.
But it was still worth going there! Even though I didn´t have no one to share my cuddles with! But why is it so damn romantic then?! Well, there are canals… a lot of canals. With gondolas in them. Isn´t it romantic going out on a boat with your loved one? I think yes!

I find colors to be romantic too. Not just red. Small old houses with really bright colors. You´ll get an cuteness overload! I promise! You will fall in love with the houses and you will have excess love you desperately feel the need to spread around you! And Venice is full of small, old, colorful, super cute houses.
Aaaaaw! I´m dying! Even looking at it now….
There are also these cute, really tight, alleys, where you could hide with your special one to do… whatever it is you want to do. And even they are colorful as f***.
In love with the alleys of Venice.
And what is more adorable than sharing a meal with your bf or gf? And do I have to tell you that Italy has the best food in the world? I think not! Because they do! OMG, I could kill for that ice cream! And that is why I added “eat Italian icecream” on my Bucketlist. Because everyone deserves Italian icecream, at least once in your life! Mmmm…. Italian icecream…. Can´t think about anything else now….

But as I mentioned, I was there with my new-found friends (see the post “Eurotrip“). And it wasn´t romantic at all. But we had a lot of fun. We enjoyed our time in this beautiful city and continued on, on our road trip trough Europe!
Being ridiculous in the most romantic city in the world.
One day, I will have to go there again, but with my bf Håkan. He hasn´t been. It is such a shame. He is over 30 years old and have never been in Venice?! But I will save him from humiliation! I´m just that good! It has nothing to do with the part that I fucking love Venice! And the rest of Italy as well!
Five out of five stars!
Is there really an even more romantic city out there? Let me now!
