Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse for a romantic short break away with a loved one. Take a look at our top 3 romantic destinations across Italy!
The home of Romeo and Juliet, you can’t find a more romantic city over Valentine’s day than Verona – the city hosts a 4 day Valentine’s Festival! The luxurious designer shops and boutiques on Via Mazzini, the world famous Amphitheatre and a visit to Juliet’s Balcony make for the perfect weekend away at this time of year.
This dramatic town in the heart of the Amalfi Coast is an unforgettable destination – the colourful buildings and streets built up the mountainside make this the perfect picturesque holiday spot, not to mention the stunning local seafood restaurants. Its location in the south of Italy means you’re likely to even catch a bit of winter sun on your trip! Don’t miss taking a special boat ride out along the Amalfi Coast – there’s no better way to get to know this area than from the sea.
A must-see for any culture vultures, you can pack more into a short break in Florence than in so many other cities – visit Michelangelo’s famous ‘Davide’ in the Galleria dell’Accademia, marvel at Botticelli’s ‘The Birth of Venus’ in the Uffizi, and don’t forget to stop by the beautiful jewellery shops on the Ponte Vecchio. Any lovers of good food will also be in heaven in Florence – the morning market sells delicious local produce, and don’t forget to sample a classic Bistecca alla Fiorentina during your stay! Our Cooking short breaks in Tuscany guide you around Florence’s culinary hotspots, as well as teaching you the secrets to the local cuisine.
