Romantic musts: Visit the Giardini Botanici Hanbury, one of the largest and most well-known gardens in Italy boasting more than 6,000 plant species. With sweeping views of the countryside and Mediterranean Sea from its cliff-side trails, what’s not to love? Speaking of love, The Lover’s Walk is another activity you can’t miss. This one kilometer pathway connecting the coastal towns of Riomaggiore and Manarola provides panoramic views sure to woo your partner. It is rumored that this pathway, which was first built in the 1920s, made it much easier for the local townspeople to meet and secretly fall in love.
Bali is one of the most serene yet exotic destinations guaranteed to leave a lasting impression on all those who visit. From mighty mountains speckled with ancient wonders to jaw-dropping beaches, this peaceful Indonesian Island is perfect for a romantic getaway.
Romantic musts: One late afternoon head to Uluwatu Temple, a temple constructed in the 11th century to protect the island from evil spirits, and watch the sunset above the Indian Ocean. Be sure to dress conservatively or grab a sarong for free at the entrance. Beware of the adorable yet conniving monkeys who love to steal purses, cameras and sunglasses. As the sun goes down, you’ll love watching a traditional Kecak Fire Dance performed by Balinese locals. Another must-see is the Tirta Gangga, a former palace where you can take a dip in the palace pools and feel like true royalty. Dry off and visit the palace’s restaurant for a delicious meal with a fabulous view.
Founded as the first city of the 13th (and final) U.S. colony, the quaint beauty of Savannah dates back to 1733. The historic district of this unbelievably charming city is renowned as one of America’s largest historic landmarks.
Romantic musts: Walk Savannah’s historic squares, as they will simply take your breath away. Be sure to visit some of the restored churches and temples like the Lutheran Church of the Ascension from 1741 and Temple Mickeve Israel, the third-largest in the U.S. Get a feel for the entire city via private carriage tour in horse and buggy. Before the day is done, stop by Lulu’s chocolate bar and get some confectionery treats for your sweets.
This city isn’t deemed “The City of Love” for nothing. Paris is quite loveable between the French language (je te aime – does it get more beautiful than that?), the charming side streets, the dainty delicacies and top attractions.
Romantic musts: You cannot visit Paris without a trip to the iconic Eiffel Tower. To avoid the crowds at the top of the tower, set up a romantic picnic for two on the grassy area in front during the day. Indulge in a nice bottle of Bordeaux, some delectable sandwiches on a fresh baguette and mouthwatering macarons (French meringue-based treats shaped like mini hamburgers that are beyond delicious). Climb to the top of the tower at night and gaze out at the beautiful lights across the city of Paris. Though it may be corny, you also won’t want to miss the Pont des Arts, a pedestrian bridge across the Seine River filled with thousands of love locks. Write your names on the lock, attach it to the bridge and toss away the key as a symbol of your unbreakable bond.
