Florence is rightly viewed as one of Italy’s most atmospheric and beautiful cities and offers visitors a spectacular array of Renaissance art and architecture a vibrant centre and of course, local delicacies like olive oil, meat dishes and Chianti wine! And even better, the sun still shines in February!
Not your first choice I hear you say? Well it should definitely be up there in your list of options. Regarded as ‘The Paris of Eastern Europe’, Budapest offers everything you need to get lost in the warm Valentine’s atmosphere. Lined with pretty cobbled streets, incredible Gothic architecture and countless thermal springs, there’s plenty of opportunity to take all of those photos you’re just dying to share on Facebook!
Valentine’s Day aside, Reykjavik is at the top of my travel bucket list for 2014. From the Blue Lagoon Spa, the picturesque glacial landscape and of course, the Northern Lights, I can’t think of anywhere I’d rather be hand-in-hand with my better half. There’s also a great nightlife for you to enjoy in the evening and some of the freshest seafood in Europe, so grab your camera and a very good pair of gloves and head on out to Iceland.
You didn’t think you could read a blog post about romantic Valentine’s Day destinations and not see Paris in there, did you? Cliché? Maybe, but if you’re looking for the idealistic location to getaway together on February 14th it really, truly doesn’t get any better. Sure you can do the usual night time Eiffel Tower trip or sail the Seine by candlelight, but if you really want to impress them book a table at Le Bilboquet Restaurant and Jazz Club which recreates the jazz scene that flourished in Paris in the early 20th century. Iconic. Unique. Perfect.
