The remaining 13 percent opted for Seville, Spain and Budapest, Hungary.

Moreover, it was confirmed that Valentine’s Day is very important to the Greeks. Over 52 percent of those questioned said they prefer to travel to a European city with their other half while 30 percent would rather spend the day either at a spa in a luxurious hotel or enjoy a romantic dinner in a restaurant.
