Italy has long been regarded as one of the world’s most romantic holiday destinations - and for good reason. Everything about the country exudes romance - from its stunning natural beauty and exceptional culture to the food, wine and the very language itself. So it makes sense that couples choose Italy as their holiday destination for honeymoons and romantic getaways.
The qualities that make Italy a popular romantic destination vary significantly, enabling various styles of holidays - another draw for travellers. So, whether you and your loved one want to explore the country’s most beautiful cities, stay in a vineyard in the countryside, or participate in sports such as skiing or hiking, you’ll have a range of great locations to choose from.
For couples who love to submerge themselves in the hustle and bustle of cities, explore the sights and visit museums, Italy has much to offer. Rome, for instance, is regarded by many as the most beautiful city in the world and is ideal for every type of city activity. With sights like the Trevi Fountain, the Vatican, the Coliseum and the Pantheon, all it takes is a stroll through Rome to feel submerged in the city’s romance. However, if you and your loved one prefer to visit smaller cities, head to Florence or Venice, which are regarded as two of the most romantic cities in Italy. Florence - with its endless array of arts, unique Florentine culture and simply stunning scenery - is sure to conjure feelings of romance, while Venice is considered to stand in a class of its own. Venice asks its visitors to stroll along its canals, perhaps losing their way a little and all the while taking in the sights and sounds of a legendary city of romance.
However, Italy’s unique and beautiful cities aside, the country is also famous for its romantic natural settings. Tuscany, for instance, is renowned for winemaking and invites visitors to join wine tours or to even stay at the vineyards and farms. Some other popular romantic destinations in Italy include the lakes of Como, Garda, Isea, and Maggiore - each offering its own set of natural splendours.
Yet if you and your loved one wish to combine serene natural settings with exciting activities on your holiday, why not head to a mountain resort like Cervinia? Situated at the base of the beautiful Matterhorn Mountain, Cervinia is the ideal destination in which to take in Italy’s natural beauty, while enjoying activities like hiking and skiing.
So, no matter what type of romantic holiday experience you’re after, you can be sure that Italy holidays will deliver in all respects. Wherever you go in the country you can embark on one of the most memorable romantic holidays of your life.
