  • The most romantic Valentine’s Day destinations for 2012



    Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and if you want to surprise your other half with something truly special, then it’s about time you started planning. As Valentine’s Day has become really popular even in countries and cultures where the holiday doesn’t actually exist, more and more people will be on the lookout for some romantic spots where they can celebrate.

    Chocolate and flowers are nice gestures of affection, but nothing is better at showing that you can then a trip out of town. Whether you’re thinking of a short weekend getaway or maybe a week-long holiday, here are some of the most romantic Valentine’s Day destinations for 2012.

    Tuscany, Italy

    The Tuscan countryside might not be at its best in February, but just because the weather is still a bit chilly it doesn’t mean that all the romanticism is gone. Tuscany is not only a pretty destination for those who like the outdoors, but also a place where you can cultivate your taste for fine art and cuisine. What is more romantic than admiring renaissance art in Florence and then heading to a restaurant to enjoy the pasta offerings of Italy?

    If the essence of romance consists in lounging on a beach for you and your beloved, then February is a great time of the year to retreat to the sunny shores of the Maldives. Rent a water bungalow, go snorkeling, surfing and enjoy Maldivean cuisine.

    As expensive as the Maldives tend to be, everything you get is the epitome of luxury. If you really want to pamper yourself and your better half, you can’t do better than the Maldives.

    Monte Carlo

    Does the dangerously glamorous atmosphere of casinos and the probability of glimpsing someone rich and famous sound romantic to you? If yes, then Monte Carlo is a great Valentine’s Day destination, even if you are not intending to squander your life savings on gambling. Don your ritziest evening clothes, invest in a good bottle of wine, and take your partner by the arm for a stroll in some of the most sophisticated places on the planet.

    Cruises are becoming more and more popular for couples who want to enjoy each other’s company without doing anything out of the ordinary.

    Enjoy the sun on deck, swim in the pool, or have dinner in the ballroom, all decked out in your Sunday best. Caribbean island hopping with days of sailing in the sun in between is romantic enough to satisfy even the biggest saps among us.

    Paris, France

    Of course that Paris is one of the most romantic destinations for Valentine’s Day, but so it is for most of the year.Luxury Paris is not difficult to achieve, seeing as there are plenty of boutique hotels and upscale restaurants to fill a weekend, but for an equally romantic and much cheaper alternative you could walk around Paris on the cheap.Visit the free attractions, get your meals from ethnic restaurants or produce markets – it’s Paris, and it will be romantic whatever you do!
