Holiday! Holiday! Holiday! I am convinced that I am not the only one who always thinks of escaping and leaving at least for a weekend in a corner of Europe. Especially since lately, due to the pandemic, we have been kept more in houses or at most close to the city where we live. Precisely for this reason, I thought of proposing 5 romantic cities in Europe, 5 places that you can visit at very affordable prices and which are very pleasant in terms of tourist attractions and landscapes.
