The moment you step foot in a new city, the first thing you do is take a deep breath, embracing the sights, sounds, and smells of your surroundings. This experience can be overwhelming, but it can also be exhilarating. Some cities have a certain je ne sais quoi that draws you in and makes you feel like you’ve found the place you’ve been looking for all along. According to a group of women travelers online, these cities around the world will make your heart skip a beat when you arrive.

1. Prague

You might not expect Prague to be a romantic city, but it’s probably more charming than the most popular European cities. The ancient cobblestone streets, the stunning medieval architecture, and the colorful buildings will fill you with a sense of wonder and awe. A traveler says, “My grandmother has been to over 30 countries in her life. Prague is at the top of her list.”

2. Edinburgh

Edinburgh, where the grey skies and views of the North Sea will make your heart skip a beat…eventually. Don’t worry if you don’t fall in love at first sight – it’ll sneak up on you like a thief in the night, as it did for one forum user. Additionally, Edinburgh offers impressive architecture and indie bookshops to get lost in.

3. San Diego

San Diego is another winner, but the housing prices are so crazy that you might have to sell a kidney. Still, basking in the sun and ocean breeze is worth it. One person confesses making the hard choice and moving to San Diego. Leaving things behind was intense, but ultimately, the city’s beauty made everything worthwhile.

4. Porto
