Say “Yes” in Europe: Top ‘Marry Me’ Locations


9 Picks for the Best “Will You Marry Me” Locations in Europe


When it comes to popping the question … You know, the big one … it’s all about location, location, location.  Now, Monograms Local Hosts® are weighing in on their favorite, “will you marry me” spots and activities.  From landmarks to legendary views, these proposal-worthy places will ensure a “yes.”


Horse & Carriage Ride
 – Departing from the Eiffel Tower, couples will experience the romantic ambiance of the City of Love on rides that last from 30 minutes to 2 hours and 30 minutes (giving the asker plenty of time to build up nerve to pop the question).

Eiffel Tower – Every night, every hour (on the hour) this iconic landmark is covered in golden lights and sparkles for five, full minutes, lighting up the city and the desire to experience a lifetime of love.  Is anyplace on earth more romantic?

Trevi Fountain – 
Don’t all romantic roads lead to the Trevi Fountain?  According to legend, if you toss a coin over your shoulder and into the fountain, you will return to Rome.  Throw a second coin if you’re in search of love and a third if you’re hoping to get married.  For all of those third coin-contenders, the newly restored marble at the base of the Trevi Fountain is a perfect place to say, “I will.”

Fontana Dell’Acqua Paola – If Trevi Fountain seems too cliché a choice, another beautiful and historic, white marble Roman fountain can be found perched on top of Janiculum Hill.  This fountain actually served as inspiration for Trevi Fountain.

St. Mark’s Campanile –
St. Mark’s Campanile is open until 9 PM in the summer and 7 PM in the spring and fall.  Twilight views over Venice promise a romantic proposal.

Ca’ d’Oro – For a proposal fit for a queen (or king) Ca’ d’Oro is a palace on the Grand Canal.  Known as the “golden house,” this palace offers a floral Gothic-style background for the perfect “will you…”  Local Hosts recommend getting engaged on the balcony.

For a couple of casually beautiful, outdoor locales, Nice’s Local Hosts recommend Castle Hill (offering a view of the bay) and Promenade Des Anglais (a palm tree-lined promenade that sets the stage for a beautiful proposal).

San Miniato al Monte – 
Standing atop one of the highest points in the city, this 1,000-year-old basilica is considered to be one of the most scenic churches in Italy.  Its marble façade creates a picturesque spot to pop the question.
