Our off-the-beaten-track round-up of some of the world’s best streets
20: Florence, Italy
A loved one. A room. A view. A window seat for two. Watch the sun go down with a glass of Chianti while declaring undying love seems the only possible course. Surrounded by wooded, rolling, emerald-green hills, with a Unesco-listed medieval centre, the drop-dead-gorgeous city of Florence straddles the Arno River. It looks like it has sprung from a medieval illuminated manuscript. Propose here, and you’ll be up the aisle before you know it.
