Venice is one of the most romantic cities to visit, and to spend Valentine’s Day with a loved one in this city is an opportunity not to be missed.
Situated in Veneto in north-east Italy it is home to 100 small islands in a lagoon where it is possible to peruse the city in a gondola. By hiring a gondola or taking a tour in a boat the most can be made of this road-free city.
Around the piazzas and streets you will find Osteria and Ristorante serving some of the most fine Italian cuisine to tempt those taste buds. Of course, being in the heart of the Prosecco wine-making region, an aperitif is a must, and is served from around ten in the morning. Accompanied with the best cicchetti; little nibbles; this really is all you need until your evening meal which is usually served from eight or nine pm, taking you late into the evening.
Places to see
A great hotel will offer you flowers and chocolate and your hotel will be complemented by some stunning scenery such as St Mark’s Square, San Giorgio Maggiore and some fantastic sunsets. A truly romantic break away is not complete without a visit to the Accademia Bridge where it is believed Greg Wise proposed to Emma Thompson. Proposal or no proposal, in any case, the views from here are stunning and best shared as a loving couple creating memories forever.
