World's Most Romantic Cities

Slide 4 of 26

Edinburgh, Scotland

Why go: With its cobbled streets, moody old buildings and dramatic scenery, Edinburgh has both history and charm to spare. But it’s very much a modern city, with great nightlife, excellent restaurants and year-round cultural festivals.

Where to stay: A designer B&B in a beautifully restored Victorian house, 94DR offers six rooms with modern interiors, a walled garden and a fantastic glass-enclosed breakfast room with meals prepared by the owners, one of whom is a trained chef. Rooms from around $100;

Where to eat: Located in a Georgian townhouse, Paul Kitching’s 21212 serves a five-course menu featuring playful takes on Scottish classics like fish-and-chips, or corned beef reimagined as a fillet with fried onions, celeriac and macadamia nuts. Every numeral in the restaurant’s name refers to the number of choices diners get for each course.
