Florence, Italy

When it comes to postcard-ready architecture, Florence is one of Italy's best offerings. Situated in the nation's north, the city is a place of terracotta rooftops, impressive cathedrals, sun-drenched city squares and incredible bridges. Seriously, you have to check out the Ponte Vecchio bridge if visiting Florence, which features rows of shops suspended over the Arno River. 

Famous for its fashion houses and art collections (be sure to see Michelangelo's David here), Florence is also perfect for couples who just want to relax and eat their way around the city. Of course, Florence's restaurants and trattoria serve the very best in Italian cuisine, while the Mercato Centrale indoor market is fantastic for sampling artisan produce and traditional sweets.
