The World's Most Romantic Places

On this Valentine's Day, we celebrate by bringing you an article and image gallery by Kaid Benfield celebrating the world's most romantic walkable urban places.

In an inspired column for the romantic unrbanists of the world, Benfield suggests some walkable places where you might want to celebrate Valentine's Day with someone special.

Benfield discusses the qualities that make for a romantic place, and he focuses on walkability because, as romantic movie settings demonstrate, romantic inspiration is rarely found in, "say, sprawling Tysons Corner, Virginia or on Interstate Highway 610 during a Houston rush hour."

In an extensive gallery of images, Benfield spreads the love to some of his photographer friends.
