Given we're fast approaching Valentine's Day we thought we'd ask for your go-to romantic city destination, including four of Europe's undoubted favourites in a hotly contested social media poll.

It was a close run thing but the results are in...

Vienna might have won the day however there's much to love about each of these city break favourites. Here's our guide to these four romance hotspots guaranteed to get you in the good books.

Get tickets to the Ballet in Vienna

Oh, Vienna! As the birthplace of Mozart this is a city with a rich musical history. If classical music is your thing, or if you're just looking to try something new, get some tickets to the opera and take your seat at the city's legendary Wiener Staatsoper - one of the world's leading opera houses. One to tick off the bucket list!

There's a lot to love about Vienna. The city centre, featured on the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage list, is packed full of character with baroque streets, buzzing cafe culture, and a real sense of history.

But what about the food? The Wiener Schnitzel, one of Austria's national dishes, is a must-try and a feature on most restaurant and bar menus, while Buchtein - a delicious sweet bun filled with jam - is found in many of Vienna's best cafes.

When in town book dinner at Amador or Silvio Nickol at Palais Coburg and you won't be disappointed.
