With Valentine's Day quickly approaching, it's time to shine a spotlight on some of the most romantic places on the planet. If visiting these places isn't in your budget today, they are worth adding to your "must visit" list. If you're lucky enough to afford a romantic getaway for this coming holiday, consider any of the following trips.
Santorini, Greece – This picturesque city was built upon volcanic ashes and features impressive landscapes, such as jagged cliffs and volcanic rock that has been carved out by the ocean. Many people claim that Santorini is one of the most beautiful cities in the world because of the cliff-side villages and breathtaking beaches. The city also boasts fine wineries and luxury hotels that are built out of cave rocks. One trip to Santorini and you may be planning to relocate your whole life there.
Santa Barbara, California – Many people think that you have to leave the United States to find a romantic spot, but if you've ever visited Santa Barbara then you know they're wrong. This is the perfect unique beach town and puts an emphasis on delicious Mediterranean food and luxury spa services. If eating and relaxing isn't enough for a romantic getaway, consider a private hot air balloon ride so you can take in the gorgeous scenery the city has to offer.
Quebec City, Canada – Many people feel that Paris, France is the romance city of the world, but in our opinion they're wrong. There's no need to leave North America to find French-inspired culture. Quebec City is famous for their romantic horse drawn carriages and quaint cafés. This city is truly a lovers' paradise because there's no wrong time of the year to visit. Each season features something different to do with the one you love. In the summer, you can hold hands at an outdoor wine café and in the winter, you can sit by the fire at a top French restaurant.
Tuscany, Italy – Tuscany proves that Italians speak the language of love. Rent one of the quaint and cozy Villas in Tuscany, Italy to truly get into the culture. Staying in a villa gives you the opportunity to live like a true Italian and use the home as a base from which to see the surrounding countryside and cities. There's nothing more romantic than cracking open a bottle of wine from one of the vineyards you visited that day and cooking up a storm with the one you love beside you.
Use Valentine's Day as an excuse to book a romantic getaway to any one of these amazing places. You and your significant other won't regret it!
