Forget Paris: Amsterdam just might be Europe’s most romantic city break | The Independent

14995099068-b71c3f0eb6-kAsked to name a romantic city, you might pick Paris, Venice, Rome or possibly even Milan. But don’t overlook the Dutch capital, which is poetic enough that I have spent the past few years holed up there writing novels. And while you might associate it with a rather spicier type of “amour”, Amsterdam more than holds its own when it comes to boutique hotels, romantic restaurants and canal-side strolls – not to forget its flowers. Valentine’s Day falls on a Tuesday this year, so I say consider turning it into an extended, or even a lost weekend, in a hotel in Amsterdam.
