Best Places to Spend Valentine's Day in Italy
Explore these beautiful cities, amazing food and just indulge in the best life has to offer. You'll want to make Italy a your personal Valentine's Day getaway.
The capital of the Roman Empire, and modern Italy, is a combination of old and new with a romantic flair. Love is in the air both in the ancient sites, like the Roman Forum, and the more recent Trevi Fountain featured in Federico Fellini's movies. It's said that if you want to know, whether your partner truly loves you, visit the Boca de la Verita, or the Mouth of Truth next to the church Santa Maria de Cosmedin.
Float in a gondola, on the calm waters of the Grand Canale, and you'll understand why Venice is such a romantic destination. There are many other surprises on land as well: plenty of meandering cobblestone streets, leading to hidden squares with a renaissance flair, perfect for stealing a kiss.
The play "Romeo and Juliet" is based on the real, yet tragic story of two lovers living here in 1303. So, in Verona, you'll find Juliet's actual house and that famous balcony from the play. But Verona has much more to offer. The roman amphitheater, the Arena, and Castelvecchio Bridge will quench your thirst for exploration, while the local, delicious cuisine will settle your actual appetite.
The birthplace of the Renaissance doesn't disappoint either the lovers nor the art lovers. Take your partner to visit the magnificent Florence Dome, the Uffizi Gallery, and the Vecchio Palace. For some fashion inspiration, visit the famous designer houses of Gucci and Cavalli.
