The Cinque Terre

The Cinque Terre represent one of the best preserved natural and semi-natural areas of the Mediterranean. Historical and geomorphologic reasons have forbidden excessive housing development and the creation of major roadways (which instead are present inland in the Val di Vara). Human activity and especially viticulture, have contributed to create a unique landscape in which development of the typical stone walls is so extensive as to equal that of the famous Great Wall of China.

Sintra

Sintra is a jewel set between the mountains and the sea, waiting to be discovered by all who dare lose themselves in its majestic historical heritage, luxuriant nature, cosmopolitan cultural offer and opulent gastronomy.

 

Sintra exudes a romantic aura that left a deep impression on the soul and work of the writers who, in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, pioneered the Romantic spirit and celebrated subjectivity and the emotion of the human drama. Sintra is truly the capital of Romanticism. It is a place to experience!

Biarritz

This pearl of the Atlantic now surfs on a wave of effervescent youth. Dust cover the ghosts of Napoleon III and Eugenia, put away the Bouncing Basque, that cliché of tennis fame, Biarritz offers itself, and offers us, the tonic blast of a region of unselfconscious luxury, the slightest hint of glam rock. Its mild climate and the beauty of its coastline, its curved inlets, punctuated by rocky outcrops, and the great events that it hosts, make Biarritz a destination of enchantment at any time of year (© tourisme.biarritz).

Florence

The historic centre of Florence contains such a wealth of masterpieces that it is difficult to separate the city from its art works. In 1982 it was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, the motivation being that it encapsulates the whole history of the city, from the ‘Roman quadrilateral’ in the Piazza della Repubblica area to the narrow streets of the medieval city, the splendours of the 16th-century Pitti Palace and the changes wrought at the time when Florence was capital of Italy.

Santorini is considered to be the most sought after place for a romantic getaway in Greece, since there are not many places in the world where you can enjoy exquisitely clear waters while perched on the rim of a massive active volcano in the middle of the sea!


The island has a growing reputation as a “wedding destination” for couples not only from Greece but from all over the world. A trip to Santorini with the other half is a dream for anyone who has seen at least one photo of the island’s famous Caldera and exchanging kisses beneath Santorini’s famous sunset is the ultimate romantic experience!

Amsterdam

Part of the romance of Amsterdam is strolling along the waterways weaving throughout the old city centre. The backdrop of centuries-old stately structures towering (and teetering) over a maze of slowly flowing canals undoubtedly exudes something magical and relaxing.


Maybe you'll explore in the quiet early morning, when soft light bathes the buildings or perhaps you'll take a stroll as the sun if setting and watch the canals gradually take on an orange glow. An evening walk through Amsterdam with your special someone is a must. As you cross the illuminated bridges shimmering in the watery mirrors below, you can't help but feel a little weak in the knees.
