28th November, 2016
When it comes down to romance, Italy is the perfect backdrop and is a beckon for lovers of all ages. Fabulous food, fine wine, culture, atmosphere and history, makes Italy the perfect romantic haven. We have picked our 5 favourite romantic activities to do whilst you are holidaying in Italy with your soul mate.

1 – Stay Somewhere Luxurious

If you are making your way around Italy, it is worth having at least one luxurious experience. Try looking for luxury villas in Italy. Having a private villa all to yourself sounds amazing, doesn’t it? Imagine after a busy day, you could just go back and relax and spend some quality alone time together.


2 – Visit Venice

Venice is supposedly the most romantic city on Earth. Even those who hate clichés won’t be able to deny the romance in this unique and captivating place. Pack a map and escape the crowds to explore the quiet and picturesque canal sides and lanes to wander hand in hand. Take a gondola ride through the canals of Venice. Be sure to pick a quieter time, as you wouldn’t want to get stuck in a ‘gondola jam’ – it may kill the romantic vibe. Pack a bottle of your favourite vino and some glasses, so you can sit back and relax; just check if this is okay with your gondolier first. The golden glow of a late afternoon in Venice is breath-taking. The sunset can be a marvel of pink skies. If you are thinking about popping the question, this would be the most perfect time.

3 – Visit the Amalfi Coast and Take a boat ride

The Amalfi Coast is the perfect example of a luxurious Mediterranean landscape. It has so much beauty, with its coastal mountains that plunge into the crystal sea. You can cruise around the island and see Italy at a different angle. Beautiful villas, mountains and vineyards can all be viewed while riding along the water with the one you love.

4 – Visit Lake Como

Lake Como offers stunning views of villas and acres of quaint towns that are sprawled alongside the beautiful lakeside. If you are looking to escape reality, this is the perfect place to cut out the rest of the world as it is full of peace and serenity.

5 – Take Cooking Classes

Taking a cooking class in Italy together is the perfect romantic activity. Learn to cook with authentic and local produce, which you will dying to make when you return. You can reminisce about your trip way after you have returned by cooking some of these rustic Italian dishes you learnt in your class. Italy really does have so much to offer. You can plan your trip thoroughly or just go with the flow. As long as you both have a fantastic time, and appreciate the beauty around you, it will be one of the best trips you ever make.
