2023 Romantic Valentine’s Day Destinations


This Valentine’s Day, whisk your partner away on the perfect city break, with our list of the top romantic Valentine’s Day destinations for 2023

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching - and what better way to show your love and devotion to your partner than by whisking them away for a romantic city break? You’ll certainly be spoilt for choice, but let us narrow it down for you with our list of the most romantic Valentine’s Day destinations for 2023.


Top of our list of romantic Valentines breaks has to be the city of love itself - Paris. The wealth of couples’ activities means that it will be hard for you to narrow it down; from romantic strolls through Montmartre by day, to concerts, cabarets and jazz at night. If the weather allows, a picnic in one of the city’s many gorgeous parks is a lovely, relaxing way to celebrate Valentine’s Day, but if you want to go all-out, a candlelit dinner at one of the many Michelin star restaurants, or a cruise on the Seine taking in all the sights are bound to wow your partner. You could even book a room with a private terrace so you can share a bottle of champagne underneath the stars.


Amsterdam is a fantastic place to celebrate Valentine’s Day. During the day, explore the city on foot or by bike, or book a romantic canal cruise through the picturesque waterways. Take a break to chill out in one of the lush green parks - you can also book your accommodation nearby. If you find yourself nearby, steal a kiss at the legendary Magere Brug (Skinny Bridge), which is rumoured to bless kissing couples with everlasting love. In the evening, take in a show at the spectacular Royal Concertgebouw and be blown away by the impressive acoustics, and when it comes to dining, don’t miss out on a sensuous experience at the Ctaste - a restaurant with a twist. Diners are invited to eat in complete darkness, using their other senses to discover new flavours - an intriguing and rewarding experience for all. Make sure to book in advance to avoid being disappointed.


There are so many romantic spots in London that it would be impossible to fit them all into one break. After a hearty breakfast at your accommodation, spend a romantic day perusing the city’s many museums and art galleries, then grab a bite to eat - London is home to many sky bars and restaurants, all with stunning views over the city. For nature lovers, walking hand-in-hand on Hampstead Heath followed by a tasty fireside roast in a cosy pub could be your dream Valentine’s Day activity. Of course, London’s theatre scene is infamous, so take your pick from the broad range of shows on offer and enjoy an evening of drama, laughter and magic - lots of restaurants offer special pre-theatre deals as well. On a Sunday, wander down Columbia Road Flower Market, whose bustling stalls are bursting with beautiful blooms, or treat your love to an invigorating spa day, the ultimate romantic treat. The world - or the city - is your oyster.


Rome is romantic all year round, but visiting this historic city for Valentine’s Day makes it truly special. In February, Rome’s weather is heading into warmer spring temperatures, ideal for exploring the Eternal City on foot, discovering the many monuments and buildings that give Rome its rich history. The Trevi Fountain, Spanish Steps and the famous St. Peter’s Basilica are all great spots for lovers - and if you choose a hotel near the top attractions, you’ll find it easier to beat the queues. Next, no romantic trip to Rome would be complete without sampling the delicious food, from pastries to pizza and pasta and the world-famous gelato, so enjoy feeding your partner little tidbits and sharing laughter, fond memories, and hopes for the future over a bottle of wine. Finally, make sure to catch the breathtaking sunset views over the city from the ancient Pincian Walk, complete with villas, gardens and fountains, the perfect way to round off a romantic trip. How Rome-antic!
