Valentine's Day Holidays in Italy
Italians are famously passionate. Can you kindle (or relight) the flame between you and your loved one this Valentine's Day by taking a winter vacation to this country of flamboyance and beauty? Why not give it a try. Here are just a few suggestions of places you could could jet off to this February 14th:
The watery world of Venice oozes romance from every pore. It is hard to imagine a more romantic city than this magical one, of mists and canals, moonlight and music. Grab a gondola and explore the city with your loved one cuddled by your side, and if romance does not blossom, then you only have yourselves to blame. Venice is a city of many moods – but you can make the most of its indescribable charms no matter what the weather. End the days with a good meal and a good bottle of wine – you can't go wrong.
This rocky section of the Italian Riviera is beautiful beyond compare. Five achingly picturesque villages tumble their way down rocky, verdant hillsides. Take the train here to explore, or better still, walk the Sentiero Azzurro (Azure Trail) between the villages. The views are stunning and other than a bit of a gradient and some steep steps in one section, it is a fairly easy walk – one section is even wheelchair accessible, so can be enjoyed by all. That section, appropriately enough, is called the Love Walk.
In a city as brimming with art and culture as this one, it should be easy for you to find some lovely spot, a quiet corner in which to relax with your loved one. In summer, Florence can be very busy with tourists thronging the streets, but in the winter the pace is a lot less frenetic and the atmosphere is somewhat more relaxed. Visit the Uffizi Gallery and visit the shops as you cross the Ponte Vecchio. Indulge yourselves amid the beauty and history of this glorious city.
Why not take a road trip down the romantic Amalfi Coast, south of Naples? The beautiful road twists and turns along the cliffs, the azure ocean stretching out beside you. It may be cold and crisp on the seashore at this time of year, but you will avoid the summer crowds, which is surely a bonus as you will encounter no traffic jams and be able to enjoy your drive as the road dives and squirms its way along through olive groves and pretty white walled villages. Hole up in one of the gorgeous little villages around these parts, somewhere with a view of the sea, and while away the hours with good food and good company.
For some serious relaxation, white sand beaches, secluded coves and almost unbelievable cerulean seas, head to this fantasy island and all your dreams may just come true. This has been a resort since the time of the Roman Republic, so you will be visiting in a time honoured fashion. Visit the Blue Grotto and the Roman Villas, or simply relax and move at the slow island pace, wandering hand in hand in the scenic surroundings.
