World's Best Cities for Romance

No. 19 Victoria, Canada
Nicknamed the City of Gardens, Victoria’s immaculate parklands and picture-perfect mountain and ocean vistas may be a ferry (or 25-minute seaplane flight) from Vancouver, but they feel a world away, down to the historic 19th-century ambience. Fueled by a buzzing farm-to-table food scene, lovers will want to visit the Beacon Hill Park rose gardens and the waterfront path along picturesque Dallas Road, just two of the key spots in Canada’s most walkable city.
Don’t Miss: High tea at the grand Fairmont Empress, a 1908 British-inspired landmark with an unrivaled location on the banks of the Inner Harbor.
