11 Best Places to Share a Kiss Around the World

Lock lips in these romantic destinations to keep that exhilarating  feeling going all year long. Your significant other is never going to forget that time you went to Paris to share a kiss under the Eiffel Tower or that special smooch underneath the Golden Gate Bridge.

Here are some of the best destinations in which to pucker up.

Paris: The City of Love

When you think romance, you think Paris. Locking lips at the Eiffel Tower is practically a rite of passage for couples visiting the city. Whether you are under the tower, next to the tower, on top of the tower, it makes little difference, this is the iconic place to kiss.

Leaving Your Heart in San Francisco

The Golden Gate Bridge is the quintessential landmark for planting an endearing smooch. You can cross and kiss in the middle or sail underneath on a dinner cruise with a company such as Hornblower.

A Kiss for Luck

It is sometimes said that kissing under the Coronado Bay Bridge in San Diego, Calif., brings fortune to those on San Diego Bay. This tradition was born from navy soldiers on long deployments — when they returned to San Diego, they would see the beautiful landmark bridge and know they would soon be in the arms of their loved ones.

"An Affair to Remember"

Head to the Empire State Building observation deck, where you can look out at the city in wonder. Look into each other’s eyes. Kiss. Voila, unforgettable memories are made.

The Romantic Sigh

Italian superstition claims that if you kiss your sweetheart on a gondola at sunset while under the Bridge of Sighs, you will be guaranteed eternal love. Why not give it a try?

Juliet’s Balcony in Verona, Italy

Shakespeare’s star-crossed sweethearts declared their undying love on this balcony. Kiss beneath it before parting, hopefully not with such sweet sorrow.

Fountain of Love

Federico Fellini chose the Trevi Fountain for his iconic love scene in “La Dolce Vita” where Marcello and Sylvia wade through the fountain on an evening stroll through Rome. While we don’t recommend jumping into the water, sharing a smooch is sure to make an impression.

The Kissing Bridge, Ontario

It’s the last remaining covered bridge in Ontario, Canada, and is affectionately called the “kissing bridge” (as many of these covered bridges were referred to) since lovers would be out of sight as they crossed. Share a sweet embrace in West Montrose, Ontario, on a romantic date.

Love on the Beach

A perfect crescent of white-sand beach has long been known as a haven for couples and has been dubbed Lover’s Beach. Take a water taxi to this (usually crowded) stretch of sand and whisper sweet nothings in your lover’s ear.

And don’t worry, the commitment doesn’t have to last long, Divorce Beach is right next door.

Hershey Kisses

Take a wild ride and lock lips in a city known for the Hershey Kiss. Hershey Park in Hershey, Penn., is a sweet place for romance.

Here’s Looking at You Kid

Finally, in the 21st century, lovers are lucky enough to be able to recreate the passion in the classic movie “Casablanca” with a kiss at the replicated Rick’s Cafe in Casablanca, Morocco.
