Here are some of the best places for an engagement proposal at the moment:
Die-hard romantics know Paris is the city for all things love. Whether you are going on a romantic getaway, a honeymoon vacation, or to pop the ‘will you marry me’ question; you can’t go wrong in Paris.
There are many places to propose in this city, but the Eiffel Tower takes the top spot. You can book a room in a hotel close to the Eiffel Tower, set a dinner date, and pop the question.

Can there be a list of perfect spots for an engagement proposal without Venice? With its Gothic architecture, hidden bridges, breathtaking waters, and beautiful gondola-filled canals, Venice is one of the best cities for love. We would recommend proposing at St Mark’s Square, the entrance of the San Giorgio Maggiore church, or Doge’s palace, where the renowned heartthrob Giacomo Casanova was locked.
