Enjoy a Parisian romance

Strolling through Paris, arm-in-arm is just the stuff that dreams are made of, and you can make that your reality. Head to the City of Romance with your partner and go for a cruise on the Seine River, shop or just have a date at a café or rooftop bar.

Go on a gondola ride in Venice

It's been the most popular backdrop for romance in movies and books and you can add that to your Valentine's Day travel memory, too. Take a gondola ride in Venice.

This is a city of canals with close to 400 bridges making for a picture-perfect scene. Don't forget to spend a few moments under the Bridge of Sighs.
