Nothing beats going on holiday and the excitement that comes with travelling to a part of the world to which you’ve never been before. Once you step off the plane, endless opportunities and undiscovered sights lay before you – and what’s even better is to have your partner by your side when you do it, taking in all those emotions with you.
A romantic trip is a great way to celebrate your love for one another while sharing an adventure. Maybe you’ve bought the flowers and the found the perfect card for your anniversary but you’re still struggling for inspiration to make the occasion extra-special.
Well, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! With so many incredible destinations around the world, it can be hard to narrow down which one is best for you and your significant other – so here’s a guide to some of the most romantic getaways available.
The Amalfi Coast, Italy
The Amalfi Coast is as picturesque as it comes. Its seaside towns have masses of charm and offer visitors an authentic Italian experience. You could take a boat ride to explore other areas of the country and spend your days lounging next to the turquoise sea.
Or wander through the cobbled streets of Positano, checking out the street vendors and small boutique stores. You could even plan a day trip to the historic Pompei (around two hours away), or visit bustling Naples (2.5 hours away).
Many don’t consider Prague as a romantic destination but the city can offer many delightful experiences for couples that make it a fantastic option.
Those who like the opera could book tickets for the Prague National Theatre, or perhaps you’d rather take a tour around the Viniční altán wineries and have a refreshing glass of crisp white wine amongst the lush greenery.
It’s easy to see why the white domed buildings against the rich blue colour of the Mediterranean Sea is one of Greece’s most recognisable sights.
Here you can spend the day scuba diving or exploring the island’s many hidden beaches. One particularly worth a visit is Elafonisi, on the east of the island, with its pink-hued sand.
In the evening, stroll down to a restaurant with a coastal view and watch the sunset while dining. Santorini is definitely worth considering if you want a dash of adventure in your getaway.
Maybe you want to experience a romantic getaway on the slopes instead of the beach. In that case, Gstaad ski resort in Switzerland is worth a look.
Gstaad is a cosy little resort in the deep valleys of the Pennine Alps. It offers couples an exhilarating ski experience with pistes for all abilities. Spend the days hitting the slopes and then soothe your aching muscles in the many hotel spas.
For foodies, you could arrange a cheese-tasting excursion or get creative together and make your own pottery.
These are just a few of the many romantic places that could be chosen as a honeymoon or just an intimate couple’s trip. So what are you waiting for? Book your plane tickets, pack your bags, and grab your loved one to make some memories that will last a lifetime.
