This year the boyfriend and I are spending Valentine’s Day at home (probably accompanied by Netflix and popcorn). I think it’s nice to cuddle up at home once in a while. But if you’re dreaming of a more adventurous date abroad, I can really recommend the most romantic city in the world… Venice! Yep, that’s right. This Italian city has everything to capture your heart. On Valentine’s Day or any other day of the year.
♥ Small streets to get lost in. Just drop your city guide and phone in the water (kidding, just kidding!) and get lost in the city. Venice is one of the few cities in the world where you can really go anywhere and still stumble upon a nice place. Perfect for romantic evening walks. And people like me, who are born without any sense of direction.
♥ Spaghetti. Insert: Lady and the Tramp flashback. Add: a cheesy but oh so romantic Italian ballad. Et voilà: the dinner date of your dreams. Who ordered a poetic setting?
♥ History. Pretend to be the main character of an ancient love story. Venice breathes history. Definitely make a stop at Piazza San Marco and St. Mark’s Basilica. Don’t forget your Venetian mask by the way. Tradition is everything.
♥ No cars allowed. Go on a magical gondola ride instead.
