Traveling around the world is fun, but exploring it with the person you love makes it even better. A trip with your partner is the best way to take a break from your everyday routine. When my partner and I brought up the idea of a trip for the first time, I put together a list of the most romantic destinations I hoped to go with him. We already managed to explore some of these, and hopefully soon, we’ll travel to more. These places are perfect for a weekend getaway, a honeymoon, or simply a little bit of time away.
Cinque Terre, Italy
Cinque Terre is a beautiful place. Hidden between the mountains and the Mediterranean Sea on the Northern coast of Italy, this place is truly unique. Everything about this place spells romance: the food, the wine, the sea, the colorful houses, and the mountains. Cinque Terre will leave you speechless.
The Maldives are located between India and Sri Lanka, and are known as one of the most romantic island groups in the world. The white sand and the crystal clear blue sea are sure to make you feel as if you’re inside a painting. Whether you’re snorkeling together or just relaxing on the beach with a cocktail, The Maldives are the definition of a romantic destination.
Big Sur, California
You don’t have to get out of the U.S. to have the perfect romantic getaway! This 90-mile-long highway between Carmel by the Sea and Hearst Castle is one of the world’s most unforgettable coastlines. The classic drive through Big Sur is the perfect romantic ride, having mountains on one side and rocky cliffs and beautiful beaches on the other.
Bora Bora, French Polynesia
The blue and green shades of water in Bora Bora are the first thing you see when you land, and trust me, it’s love at first sight. The overwater bungalows, the white beaches, and thousands of tropical fish make Bora Bora a piece of paradise on earth.
Considering its famous blue-domed churches, white buildings, and magnificent cliff-side views, it’s no wonder Santorini draws couples from all across the globe. Walking on the beautiful trails, eating amazing food, and sipping luxurious wine, make this destination one for the books.
Italy has a lot to offer to all you love birds out there! Having art, history, food, and wine all at your fingerprints makes Rome a top runner in the list of most romantic destinations around the world. The city offers a cinematic background with its very recognizable landmarks such as the Pantheon, the Colosseum, or the Roman Forum, and many others.
Northern Lights, Iceland
Iceland is one of the best countries to witness the magical thing that is the Northern Lights. This incredible natural event is best seen during the colder months, between November and January. Just a heads up, it’s freezing during that time! Make sure you’re dressed well.
How can you make a list of the most romantic places without mentioning Paris? Probably the most obvious destination, there is no denying Paris is truly the city of love. Sitting at a cafe, strolling along the Seine or just admiring the amazing culture are just some of the romantic things you can do. And that’s without mentioning the Eiffel Tower at night time.
Of course, this is just the tip of the iceberg. There are so many other destinations in the world for you to explore. But let me check all the boxes on this list before I make a new one. Hopefully, it won’t take long.
