Welcome to our Valentine's travel addition - a list of the most romantic places to travel in the world!


While most people think of Paris or the Amalfi Coast for the most romantic destionations, we've found some new ones that we fell in love with while traveling as a couple.


From unique glamping spots to charming villages, these destinations are perfect for couples, and make excellent spots for a romantic getaway. Let's dive right in!


The Most Romantic Places to Travel in the World in Europe

Out of all regions of the world, Europe definitely is home to the most romantic places to travel in the world. Full of charming old villages, beautiful views, and iconic monuments, it's impossible not to enjoy a bit of romance in some of these cities.


1. Verona, Italy

Italy is definitely one of the most romantic places to travel in the world. But while most flock to Venice, Rome, and Milan, we have some other recommendations for the couples out there.


Not only is Verona easily accessible from Venice or Milan, but it is the charming destination we've all been waiting for. It's actually known for being the home to the story of Romeo and Juliet, and you can even visit Juliet's balcony!


If that doesn't sell you enough on the idea, head to Castel San Peitro for sunset, where you can have the most romantic view.

2. Ios, Greece

Move over Santorini and Mykonos! While these stunning islands typically steal the spotlight, the island of Milos is the up and coming island destination for romance.


Ios is quieter than the other famous islands, it has adorable villages, and also is home to one of the most romantic hotels in the world.


Soak in a hot tub, lay in a swinging bed, and sip champagne at one of the most romantic hotels in the world - Calilo in Ios.

3. Ayia Napa, Cyprus

When it comes to romantic places to travel in the world, we could easily choose the entire island of Cyprus. Half Greek and half Turkish, this island is full of turquoise waters, charming villages, and the msot delicious food.


But there is a particular area of Cyprus that we really loved, which is Ayia Napa. It's home to the best beaches, and has pleny of opportunities for couples to enjoy some fun in the sun.


Just 45 minutes outside of Ayia Napa, we stayed at an incredibly romantic hotel called Athenio. It's family run, has delicous food, and is beautifully lit at night for a truly romantic evening.

4. Etretat, France

Move over Paris, we found one of the most romantic places in the world, and it's just a few hours west of France's capital.


Etretat is a small coastal town with beautiful gardens, giant cliffs, and a handful of beaches to explore. But what makes it super romantic are the views at sunset from the top of the cliffs.


There is even a secret cave that has a window with views of the beach down below. Head there for sunset and grab a bottle of wine and some cheese for a truly romantic evening with your significant other.

6. La Gomera, the Canary Islands

The Canary Islands are some of the most beautiful and diverse islands in the world! While we love all of them, we particularly choose La Gomera as one of the most romantic places to travel in the world because of its special unique experiences.


We traveled the island by van, and every morning the sunrises were simply magical, with incredible views of El Teide Volcano in Tenerife. We cozied up in the van at night, but were ready to hit the beaches during the day.


THe best part though? There is an exclusive cave inside a resort that you can rent out for lunch or dinner. Your food and drinks are delivered via a cable, so you can enjoy a romantic dinner together. There is even a bed included! Talk about adding a bit of spice to your trip.

7. Lake Bled, Slovenia

Lake Bled truly feels like your stepping into a fairytale, and is one of the most romantic places to travel in the world for the nature lovers out there.


Enjoy the sunrise together overlooking the lake from the incredible Mala Osojnica, rent a bow together, or stay at one of the cozy glamping spots surrounding the lake.

8. The Dolomites, Italy

The Dolomites is one of the most beautiful places to visit in Italy, and is deifinitely one of the most romantic places to travel in the world.


The landscapes are simply stunning, and if you can do the early wake up call, then you'll be able to experience the beauty all by yourselves.


The Dolomites are also home to some of the most romantic hotels in the world, making them an even more enticing destination for a romantic escape. Some of the most impressive ones include Chalet al Foss, Arun Private Spa Villas, Gloriette Guest House, Hubertus, and Naturhotel Leitlho.

9. Lapland, Finland

Lapland may just be the most magical winter wonderland in the world. Imagine blankets of snowier massive forests, reindeer or husky sledding, and the northern lights.


In Lapland you can stay cozy in incredible glass igloos to watch the sky dance with colors, warm up in the saunas, soak in hot tubs, and even visit Santa Clause's village! It truly is one of the most romantic places to travel in the world, and extra magical in the winter time.


10. Lofoten Islands

The Lofoten Islands are some of the most grorgeous islands on Earth, and for us was one of the most romantic destinations in the world. 


Visit in the summer and you'll be able to experience 24 hours of sunlight, charming fishing villages, and some of the most gorgeous hikes we have ever experienced, which are particularly romantic to spend sunset to sunrise (it never gets dark).


Visit in the winter time, and you'll have an incredible shot at seeing the northern lights. Cozy up in a cute red cabin, sip hot chocolate, and enjoy the sky dancing with colors.

11. Tbilisi, Georgia

Tbilisi just may be one of the most underrated capitals in Europe, and it's perfect for a romantic getaway.


Georgia has amazing comfort food and wine, affordable glamping experiences, and quirky architecture. But what we particularly love about Tbilisi is the area of thermal baths right in the city center. 


We spent our anniversary in Tbilisi, and Fede took me to the most famous Spa in town (Orbeliani). There is a special private room that they set up with music, massage beds, and a pool to enjoy, making it a great place for a special romantic occasion.

The Most Romantic Places to Travel in the World: North America

While we personally think Europe is full of many more romantic places to travel in the world, the Americas also have some notable places we believe are perfect for a quick romantic getaway.


12. St Augustine, Florida

So many people flock to Florida for romantic getaways, but this town is so much more than just a quick beach weekend (although it does have a beach too!). 


St Augustine is the oldest registered city in the entire country, and is also one of the most charming. Not only that, but from mid November until January the historic town has "night of lights", when the entire city is draped with lights, making it even more magical for couples to enjoy.


For a super romantic local stay, we recommend Lions and Lanterns, which is run by a local Josie who creates incredibly stunning rooms to rent her guests.

13. Guanajuato, Mexico

Guanajuato may just be one of the most underrated destination in Mexico. While most flock to the beaches of Mexico, this city boasts vibrant colors, and is made of over 1,000 alleys!


Join a callejoneada (a musical walking tour), roam the quaint streets, or even stay in a castle for the night! Like Verona, Guanajuato also features a balcony with a tragic love story, just like Romeo and Juliet.


Guanajuato is the enchanting European city of Mexico, and definitely was one of the most romantic places in the world we've traveled to.
