romantic city

Europe’s most romantic city?

Posted on Updated on

20130410-193251.jpgThis week I have been in Paris with my family – including two teenagers – so not at all romantic, but great fun. Paris is often sold as the most romantic destination in Europe, whether this is true or not remains to be seen (depending on a couple only trip in the future), but certainly there are signs that it may well be!

I am aware that the idea of locking a padlock onto a bridge to show your love for someone is not a new one – and I have no idea where it started (I have certainly seen it in various parts of the world). However the locks on the Pont de l’Archevêché which lies very close to Notre-Dame are the most I have seen yet – and perhaps prove the French claim that theirs is the most romantic city?
