If you are looking to try something new with your partner and think flamenco could be fun, look no further than Seville.

The city is widely renowned for its flamenco dancing as well as its stunning Alcázar castle complex.

Additionally, for all you history buffs, the Gothic Catedral de Sevilla is the burial site of famous explorer Christopher Columbus.

Perhaps one of the most romantic places in the city is the Plaza de España. If you visit during the day, there is the opportunity to rent a boat and view the plaza from an entirely different perspective.

Plaza de España is also stunning in the evening because the building is aglow with an endless supply of lights, providing the ultimate tender ambience.

Just a 30-minute train ride from Madrid, the city of Toledo is a small medieval town situated on the top of a hill that is rich with rustic charm.

With its winding cobbled streets, ancient walls, and historic architecture, a trip to Toledo feels as though you have taken a step back in time.

If anything, getting completely and delightfully lost in the streets is the ideal way to experience this romantic city.

Explore the top of Monasterio San Juan de Los Reyes, wander through the Baños Arabes de Tenerias, and watch the sunset over the city with a nice bottle of wine at the end of the day.

Toledo is as rich in history as it is in romance.
