Romantic Italy: the right destinations for couples
If you have a strong romantic vein, you cannot miss some beautiful Italian destinations renowned for being the hometowns of love.
Actually, Italy is widely known for representing a perfect destination for lovers, both for those who want to spend a honeymoon or simply a romantic break together. Art cities, islands, beaches, lake towns, abandoned towns and hidden corners, all represent good places to spend a beautiful time with your partner.
Italian romantic spirit is well known everywhere: it may be because of the magic of Italian sunsets, or because Italy has been inspiration and backdrop for love stories in literary works such Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, or just because the country is just so incredibly beautiful, however you want to say it, Italy is truly the country of romantic love. It's, nevertheless, quite hard to come up with a proper list of romantic places to visit, there are just too many and it may really depend on what you would consider romantic: the sea, the Alps, cities, the countryside... But we'll try anyway to give you some good ideas!
Florence gives the opportunity to live very romantic moments. More than just an art city, it inspires love thanks to the beautiful views that can be enjoyed from its Ponte Vecchio, where you'll be able to witness some of the most beautiful sunsets, daintly reflected in the water of the Arno. At night, the atmosphere becomes even more favourable for love: choose a cozy restaurant on one of the lungarno, the streets along the river, and enjoy, beside love and romanticism, some extraordinary food, too.Florence ties with lovers and love goes beyond art and natural beauty, though: it is a true screen of love stories and tales. Ponte Vecchio itself keeps the legend of a Florentine nobleman who was killed with a dagger while he was riding because of a love matter. The chiesa di Dante, Dante's church, is also said to be the place where Dante met Beatrice for the first time and immediately fell in love with her. Love truly becomes, then, the main protagonist of this town!
It was considered the caput mundi during Roman times. Its ruins, ancient monuments and majestic art are still witness to a grandeur that will give lovers the
Amalfi coast and Capri
They are both situated in the region of Campania. The Amalfi coast represents one of the most popular honeymoon destinations in Italy. The views of the beautiful gulf is what enchants lovers the most, and the hotels are first-rate: virtually all of them have amazing terraces overlooking the sea, where you will be able to enjoy the most beautiful- and delicious- candlelight, al lume di candela, dinner of your entire life.
These are only some of the best loved Italian romantic locations, to which many others should be added. However, if you go to Italy these destinations cannot be missed for a holiday in the spirit of love and sentimentalism. A perfect solution could be that of mixing all the destination during your holiday, dividing it in stages in order to live places that are romantic in different ways, but that will give the same charming result.
