With Valentine’s Day just a few short weeks away, are you considering a romantic break overseas? Looking forward to whisking your loved one away to another world for a weekend, or longer? If so, then lucky you! Even in these troubled times, the world is a treasure trove of wonderful destinations guaranteed to make Valentine’s Day a special day to remember.
We must start with Paris, city of lovers, and the first choice for many when it comes to planning an intimate Valentine’s Day getaway. After dark, Paris is known as the “City of Lights”, with it’s tree lined boulevards and cafes brilliantly illuminated, making a stroll down the Champs Elysee an enchanting experience. Sharing the view from the Eiffel Tower, or enjoying a candlelit dinner cruise on the river Seine……moments of pure romantic escapism! Dinner and cabaret at the Moulin Rouge is regarded as an unmissable experience, but also consider the Paradis Latin nightclub, considered by the French themselves to have the best cabaret in the city. Paris will provide you with many magical moments to treasure.
The Italians believe they invented love, so a visit to an Italian city for Valentine’s Day has to be a good choice! After the recent floods, Venice is again keen to welcome visitors, and does anything conjure up a more romantic image than a gondola ride through the canals of the city? Considered by the cynics among us to be over hyped and expensive, it is something you simply must do if you are in Venice with a loved one! Away from the canals, Venice has a multitude of places to explore, old palaces, small intimate restaurants, and wonderfully romantic hotels. The Italians do know how to celebrate love so they will make sure your Valentine’s Day will be extra special!
Want to consider something really different? Then it has to be Morocco. Lying at the base of the Atlas Mountains, Marrakech is without doubt one of the most exotic and fascinating cities on the planet, with the added bonus of having excellent weather for Valentine’s Day! It is like going back in time, with bustling souks and markets that don’t appear to have changed in hundreds of years, and snake charmers and street entertainers in the main square, Djemaa el Fna, the focal point of the city. Be sure to take a carriage ride around the pink walls of the city at sunset. This is an absolutely magical experience that will make the 21st century temporarily disappear in a romantic haze! Finally book a table for dinner at the La Foundouk restaurant, where you can eat on the outside terrace and enjoy the sights and sounds of this fabulous city.
Treat yourself and your loved one to a break in any of these great destinations, and you will have memories to cherish for the year ahead!
