Whether it’s a holiday for two or a short break from the couple’s daily routine, nothing beats a trip to a romantic destination. Explore new horizons, strengthen your ties with your partner and make unforgettable memories. To help you make your choice, here is a short list of the best places to visit as a couple.
Venice: the city of lovers
Although it sounds cliché, Venice is still the city that is known as the most romantic city in the world – not without reason. Already certified as an ideal place to spend a honeymoon, the city of water is not lacking in charm for a short getaway for couples. For a visit to Venice it is out of the question to miss the inevitable gondola ride. Just imagine enjoying the picturesque landscape, the old town and the sound of the gondolier singing in the background. Why not continue the program by following in the footsteps of the famous Casanova? Make a short detour to Calle Delle Do Spade – where he used to see his conquests – then visit the prison that held him: the Doge’s Palace. But in a city like Venice, spending time walking around is enough to discover the city through its many museums, cobbled squares and churches.
Bora Bora: paradisiacal Polynesia for two
For couples who prefer to travel to a more tranquil and sunny romantic travel destination Bora Bora is the place to be. In the Leeward Archipelago, a marvel of Polynesian lagoon awaits you with turquoise waters, a sandy shoreline mixed with lush nature. For water-loving couples, many snorkeling sites are accessible, and would be perfect to complete a romantic catamaran ride overlooking the setting sun. Finish the day with a cultural immersion at the Tiki village in the west of Moorea. The natives will be able to show you a few snippets of their culture through music, songs, dances, how to wear the tiare flower – the local emblem – but also a unique opportunity to taste the real local food. The best time to bring your half is between mid-April and mid-October.
A romantic getaway in Rio de Janeiro
Less well known destination for lovers, Rio de Janeiro is rather a vacation setting for a couple looking to discover a new place. In Rio, it is not only the famous sites like Copacabana or Ipenama and the Chris the Redeemer that are interesting. For the more sporty duos, the ascent to Sugar Loaf Mountain can be done by climbing with different levels of difficulty. Less hardened couples can simply enjoy a ride in the cable car. The best way to reach the top of Mont Pain de Sucre is at the end of the day to enjoy the setting sun with your beloved one and a breathtaking view of the city lighting up. Also plan a romantic pedal boat ride along the Rodrigo de Freitas lagoon for sunny days.
