Planning to pop the question on a dreamy trip away? Here are some of the best spots in Europe for the perfect proposal.
The famous Plaza de España is one of the most beautiful spots in all of Seville. Movies like Lawrence of Arabia and Star Wars have featured the plaza as a filming location. Spectacular archways, dazzling architecture and a gorgeous fountain make it the perfect spot to get down on one knee.
The London Eye offers captivating views of the English capital. Book the very special “Cupid’s Capsule” and you'll be served a bottle of Pommery Brut Royal champagne and a box of luxury truffles as you and your partner take in the glowing scenery.
Yep, Venice is a well known tourist hot-spot, but you can still find some intimate alone-time with a gondola ride down the famous Grand Canal. Let the song of the gondolier serenade you and your significant other as you pop the question in the heart of Italy.
Stunning views of the city’s skyline can be seen from atop Vienna’s Giant Ferris Wheel. The attraction, located in the Vienna Prater funfair, was even used by James Bond during 1987’s The Living Daylights. A cultural landmark in Austria, the Giant Ferris Wheel would be an ideal spot to capture the moment from the privacy of your own cabin.
The gold standard and a time-held classic. Although it has become a bit of a romantic cliché, you can’t go wrong with a proposal either on, near or around the iconic Eiffel Tower in Paris. A night-time proposal will capture the essence of the City of Light as it shimmers and glows - the perfect backdrop for your big moment.
This famous landmark located in Old Prague offers a brilliant view of the glittering Royal Palace and the Vltava River. Prague is a beautiful city and one of Europe’s most popular destinations for a romantic trip away. If you'd prefer a little bit of privacy for your proposal, the castle gardens located nearby are the ideal spot to share a cherished moment away from the busy tourist crowds.
Want to experience your own fairytale moment? Built in the 10th century, the captivating Schwerin Castle is one of the most dazzling castles anywhere on the continent.

Nothing says class and glamour quite like a proposal on top of a stunning European castle. São Jorge Castle, originally built in the 8th Century in the centre of Lisbon, offers exceptional views of the sunny Portuguse capital. There’s tons of fun activities like dancing, theatre and music around the hilly paradise of Santa Maria Maior too to help celebrate your magic moment.
Florence is one of the most picturesque cities in all of Italy and a proposal here is sure to go down a treat. Hire a hot air balloon and take in the wonderful rolling hills and steep valleys before popping the question and (hopefully) popping some champagne afterwards.
Fancy a mountain retreat? Book a day trip to the striking Montserrat Mountain in Barcelona for the perfect wedding proposal in front of some breathtaking scenery. The multi-peak mountain range presents some of the most beautiful views in all of Catalunya and features relaxing walks in the countryside, as well as the historic Montserrat Monastery.
