08. Giethoorn, Netherlands
When you are talking about romantic getaways in Europe, how can Netherlandbe left behind. This country offers some of the most romantic place in Europe. There is a village in the Dutch province of Overijssel known as Giethoorn. This village in the country is famously known as the “Small Venice of the North” or “Little Venice”. But the most curious thing about this place is that it used to be a pedestrian precinct; that is to say, in the old town there were no roads, only a cycling path, although all transport was done by water over the many canals.
