3) Florence, Italy

In Italy, flirting is a pastime and romance is an integral part of its culture from the fine wines to the historic renaissance art and architecture. Florence, is a small, charming city known for its heavenly food, cobble stoned streets and plethora of cultural attractions. Days could be spent exploring the Uffizi, the Duomo and the Boboli Gardens but you can easily spend a day relaxing at a street-side café sipping cappuccinos or bottles of wine while watching passersby.
