List the first three adjectives that come to your mind when you think of Italians: I am sure “romantic” is going to be one of them. Why? Because Italy is not just the world’s capital of food, but also love!! Italians are great lovers and know how to be romantic! That’s just a fact: Romeo and Giulietta, Dante and Beatrice… it is not a coincidence that even nowadays many choose our country for engagements or marriages in our beautiful cities or villas in the countryside. Now we don’t want to go that far, but what about a romantic week holiday during Valentines days in Italy?
All you need to do is decide one or more destinations for your romantic trip and add some original Valentine’s day surprise on top! First, you have to choose which city better fits your need: a magnificent and chaotic Rome, a small and mysterious Florence, a cosmopolitan and lively Milan? But after all wherever you will be is going to be magical! Just relax and enjoy the great Italian atmosphere!
What do Italians do for Valentine’s day? They go for walks in parks (check out Giardino di Boboli if you are in Florence) or enjoy the sunset in one of the city’s best spots (reach Giardino degli Aranci in Rome) or an Aperitivo in some classy bars (Milan will offer you plenty of good ones). The youngest ones will look for a bridge or a lamppost to tie a chain and a padlock as an indelible trace of their love.
Thinking about a special Valentine’s gift? Go for something original! Here are some Valentine’s day ideas: a day at an Italian SPA, relaxing and enjoying thermal waters, a day-out in one of the many stunning Italian little villages or, least but not last, one of our food tours for two! These can be a great idea to spend some time together and get to know another culture!
If you want to act like a local, rent a vespa and bring your lady for a panoramic ride! Don’t forget chocolate and flowers! They are still a must!
