Whether you’re a young couple that still lives with your parents, or have a house with kids of your own, getting some privacy with a romantic trip is the perfect remedy to get away from it all. There are lots of things which make a great couples destination; sandy beaches, city streets, stunning sunsets and delicious food. You’ll find all of the above on this list, so if you’re looking for a romantic getaway then read on: you’ll be ready to book before you reach the end!
Starting with the most romantic city in the world, Paris is a paradise for loved-up couples with its beautiful public parks, romantic restaurants and tourist attractions that are ideal for taking a kissing selfie. Be cliché and attach a padlock to the lovers’ bridge, love the Louvre and go to the top of the Eiffel Tower for a view of La Ville Lumière (The City of Light for everyone without Google Translate).
There’s more to Cancun than heavenly beaches. If you want to take a break from taking a break, then go explore the Mayan culture by taking a day trip to see Chichen Itza, one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Getting back to relaxing, there are over thirty spa resorts in Cancun to help you unwind and a lively nightlife if you want to loosen up.
The first entry from Italy on the list and it certainly won’t be the last. I can’t think of anything more amorous than a gondola tour of the Venice canals, as long as you haven’t got a chatty gondolier guiding you through them. Venice can be heaving with tourists during the summer, so if you want some quiet time then jump on a short boat ride to neighbouring Burano and Murano, where life seems to stand still.
Wherever there’s a sunset there won’t be a couple too far away. Santorini is famous for having the best sunset in the world with a kaleidoscope of colours that spread across the ocean below and sky above. There are enough picturesque photo locations to fill an album, with the beautiful landscape and ancient architecture making this a truly unique, romantic destination.
Where to start but Ponte Vecchio? The Old Bridge is a romantic hotspot that’s best appreciated when the sun has set and the hustle and bustle on the bridge has died down. Add to this the museums, art galleries and typically tantalising Italian cuisine, Florence is heaven for couples.
