But hey, who are we to judge when Spain is one of the most visited countries on the planet, and if you’ve been you know that if cupid strikes in Spain you’ll lose your mind faster than you can say olé!
3. New York City
The Big Apple is neither a state nor a country, but it definitely deserves a spot on our list because not only is it so densely populated that it’s bigger than most countries around the globe, but it just screams sex, luxury and romance wherever you turn, especially for people who associate it with the likes of Samantha Jones from Sex and the City.

You’ll fall in love with everyone, from bartenders and shop keepers to gondoliers and passers-by.
Anyone who’s ever been to France can attest to the fact that it is the single most romantic country in the world.
