Some places in the world radiate an air of passion and romance. Got your Valentine’s getaway sorted? No? Luckily, we’ve put this list together, including some of the most famous romantic cities of all time, just waiting for you and your beloved this year.
Earlier, I asked the guys ‘n’ girls at GoneDigging HQ. So, without further delay, here’s their pick of the world’s best spots for a romantic trip.
In at number one, we have Venice – a crumbling city of glory, reflected in its crisscross canals and breathtaking architecture, not to mention the cafes with their sumptuously dark hot chocolates. To visit, you’ve got St Mark’s Square and Basilica, the Rialto Bridge and, of course, the Grand Canal – all of which are free to visit. And would could more romantic than a gondola ride down a canal, or a walk over narrow bridges, getting lost through narrow lanes, and ending up at monumental squares? If you don’t fall in love with this fascinating city of fairytale canals, cobbled backstreets and winding bridges, there’s something wrong with you.
