Valentine’s Day is a perfect reason for a long weekend. But where to, exactly? Most likely, so far, you’ve visited Venice and enjoyed the gondolas rides. You’ve also probably have experienced an impromptu picnic on the banks of the Seine, at sunset. Still, there are plenty of romantic places to escape for a city break in mid-February or anytime you fancy a getaway for two.
The Amalfi Coast, Italy
Here you have many picturesque towns, worth seeing – and believe me, it’s really hard to find a place that’s not romantic. The best choice is to stay in Positano, where you’ll enjoy some fairytale sunsets. It’s an absolutely gorgeous place, with colorful houses built on the mountains, which seem to ascent from the sea.
The Southern Spain is an ideal choice at any time of the year. Seville awaits you with an amazing architecture, small, cozy restaurants serving the best tapas, charming roof terraces, from where you can admire the city’s panorama. For accommodation, look for an old castle and you will feel like in a picturesque story.
Prague, the Czech Republic
A town with the most marvelous bridges, with its charming roofs with red tiles, ancient castles and Gothic architecture. It’s one of the places where you have to go at least once, together with the one you love. Take a ride by boat on the Vlatva River and admire the old town. As far for a dinner in two, the choice will not be easy: there are plenty of restaurants worth trying.
It is one of the most beautiful European cities, with small, narrow streets and many exceptional restaurants, pubs and cafes. It’s the place where you’ll enjoy a traditional beer along with mussels and French fries. And, furthermore, Bruges is full of sweet surprises: the famous Belgian chocolate can be found at each street corner. Taste the pralines filled with basil, ginger or lime – you can choose from dozens of flavors!
The Madeira archipelago is sophisticated and charming. And, what’s more, here you can enjoy pleasant temperatures and sunny spring days. For accommodation, opt for Funchal, a town on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. It is famous for its port, gardens, and for the… exceptional wine. Honestly, you don’t need anything else for a vacation in two!
