Private Terrace Breakfast in Florence, Italy
For couples who are quite private and intimate, then we have the perfect choice for you. Around Ponte Vecchio, Florence’s most famous landmark, there are quite a few private terraces that you can reserve for a meal. You can overlook the beautiful Arno River and many of the hotels that host these terraces will help you to make it a very special moment with flowers, decorations and fantastic service.
You could head for breakfast so you can enjoy the whole day afterwards as an engaged couple or you could save it for the evening and have a special meal as the sun goes down. This will be a peaceful and private proposal that you can enjoy together without interruptions.
Lokrum Island, Croatia
If you are planning on visiting Croatia for your proposal, then going to Lokrum Island is a must for your proposal. Dubrovnik can be a beautiful place to propose, however during the summer months, the city is packed with tourists so the moment won’t be very personal. However, if you take a short boat trip to Lokrum Island, around 15 minutes, you will reach one of the most beautiful islands you will ever see.
The island is an uninhabited nature reserve, helping you to escape from the hustle and bustle of the city to make the moment really special. The unique beaches are beautiful and extend along the entire island, so you can explore the beautiful evergreen scenery before relaxing on the beach. There are also stunning coves with crystal blue seas that you can swim, jump and dive into.
For couples who love the outdoors and being at one with nature, it is definitely worth taking the trip over the Lokrum Island for a unique and wonderful proposal spot.
Charles Bridge in Prague, Czech Republic
One of the most iconic landmarks in Prague is the Charles Bridge, a stunning medieval stone arch bridge that crosses over the Vltava river. No matter what time of day you visit the bridge, it is absolutely beautiful, surrounded by one of a kind architecture and breathtaking scenery. Although, the spot does get quite busy during the day, so the best advice would be to go early in the morning or late at night. You could replicate the beauty of the medieval bridge with a vintage engagement ring, to show you really thought the proposal through.
If your partner is an early riser, suggest you go for an early morning walk to explore the city before other tourists are awake. Do some research and aim to reach the bridge by sunrise for an unbelievable view. You could also head there for sunset, an equally beautiful view, although it might be slightly busier than in the morning. Nevertheless, having some people around to celebrate with isn’t the end of the world!
Sunset in Sorrento, Amalfi Coast Italy
The Amalfi Coast is absolutely stunning no matter where you go, however one of the stand out points is definitely the sunsets. Sorrento is a city of love, with beautiful cobbled streets, authentic shops and some of the best restaurants and wine in the world. If you and your partner love beautiful views, food and drink, then Sorrento is the spot for you.
There are so many amazing spots that you can enjoy the sunset from for your proposal, although Hotel Bellevue Syrene is just breathtaking. The luxury hotel is known for its spectacular terrace with a stunning view over the bay of Sorrento. It is an absolutely charming spot and one of the most luxurious places you can find for your proposal. As soon as you walk into the hotel and reach the terrace, you will just know that this is the right place for you.
Park Guell in Barcelona, Spain
For a city based proposal, Park Guell in Barcelona is a wonderful location. The park was designed by Gaudi and when you enter, you’ll be surrounded by fascinating architecture, sculptures and tiling. When you reach the top of the park, the views are truly breathtaking. This is the best spot for your proposal, as you will have enjoyed the park and you will have an unbelievable backdrop for the special moment.
The food around the park is not particularly good and it is extortionate, so we would advise buying a special picnic when you are in Barcelona itself to take with you to the park. Make sure to buy tickets in advance (they aren’t very expensive) so there won’t be any unnecessary stress or delays on the day!
So, there you have it! These locations are absolutely breathtaking and will create the perfect backdrop for your magical moment. Whether you want something more private or public, you will find the right spot for you. We wish you all the best for your proposal!
