The City of Love is an obvious frontrunner on this list, and whether you’re falling in love with each other or the city itself, the chemistry is undeniably tangible in Paris. Sip a cocktail in a dark speakeasy, catch a sultry jazz show, walk hand-in-hand along the Seine, or cuddle up on a park bench. Parisians have PDA down to an art, and if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em. Check out our Paris Travel Guides for all you need to know about this magical city.

Buenos Aires is the birthplace of tango, the dance form that is literally described as “making love in the vertical position.” Needless to say, this city is serving up passion on a silver platter. BA sizzles from day until night — just don’t expect the nightlife to really get going until after 2:00 AM. And we all know nothing PG happens after 2:00 AM.

Positano, Italy

Welcome to honeymoon central. With pastel-coloured buildings clutching to the cliffside, the views are so incredible that you won’t need to leave your hotel room — and if you’re with your loved one, why would you want to? Just order up a bottle of wine and some delectable Italian eats, and soak in that captivating Mediterranean ambience.

You’ll be seduced by its pulsating energy, old fashioned charm, and spontaneous salsa dance parties on every second block. Make sure to head down to the MalecĂłn at sunset to see all the passion in action.

Couples can get a romantic villa overlooking the jungle with their own private pool for basically the cost of a night in with pizza delivery and Netflix in their hometown (don’t get any ideas, fellas).
