Did you know that there are over 100 ways to say “I love you” in Italian? In some parts of Europe, it’s said that a visit to Italy can save even the biggest relationship crises. Previous visitors can all agree that most Italian cities are so breathtaking, it can make even the coldest of hearts and the hardest of heads forget any negative feelings or thoughts.

From the romantic canals of Venice to the magnificence of the Italian capital, Rome, there’s something for every couple, be they young or old, adventurous or laidback. Here’s our guide to the most romantic getaways in Italy.

Tuscany is the backdrop that’s served as the inspiration for many a famous Italian artist. The city’s natural beauty holds great appeal for those who wish to escape their fast-paced, urban lives for a while. Montepulciano is an excellent choice for couples with its Medieval and Renaissance vibe and simple way of living. This quaint little town is home to the production of the finest Italian wines, including Montalcino, Montepulciano, and Nobile di Montepulciano, a robust red which has a great following both locally and abroad. Check into a hotel with an excellent view of the hills of Val d’Orcia and immerse yourself in a countryside atmosphere that cannot be found anywhere else. Montepulciano evokes thoughts of an age long past, when things were less complicated. Be sure to check out a real Tuscan cantina or wine cellar and enjoy free tastings of delicious liquor. You’ll be drunk in love in no time.

Norcia is a small town located southeast of Umbria, and is surrounded by the Sibyline mountains. If you and your partner are fond of exploring and have a taste for the medieval, there’s no shortage of things to see here. Take a walk at night and experience the city at its most mysterious and alluring – the atmosphere definitely changes as soon as the sun goes down. You may opt to stay at a sixteenth century Umbrian palace and feel like a true king or queen. Norcia is also home to some of the most excellent food this side of Italy: indulge in sausages, capocollo, black truffle, salami and hams made from wild boar and domestic swine in a local norcineria, as well as cheese and local produce. The best part is the distinct lack of crowds here, as you would find in the other, more populous cities in the country. Discover its untouched beauty and bask in the peacefulness of your surroundings – you and your partner won’t have anything else to focus on but each other, and isn’t that what a honeymoon is all about?

The beauty of the Amalfi Coast is known far and wide. Richard Wagner has even described it as “the closest place from earth to heaven”. Connected by one of the most scenic roads in Italy, there’s nothing but bright blue sea and sky as far as the eye can see, adorned with fruit trees and vineyards. The glamorous seaside resorts are an excellent retreat for those who can afford the privilege, but there is also a smattering of lower-priced accommodations for those looking to honeymoon at a beautiful place on a budget. Visit a town called Ravello, a tranquil resort that sits high up on the mountains and boasts of breathtaking views of the Mediterranean Sea.

Venice is always at the top of any must-see destination lists. As the floating jewel of Italy, it has a well-deserved reputation for being one of the most romantic destinations in the world, with the canals that crisscross the city and the gondolas that traverse them. Such famous people as Vivaldi, Ernest Hemingway, Wagner and Lord Byron have all fallen for Venice’s elegant charms, and so will you. Beautiful by day, it is absolutely awe-inspiring by night. Have dinner by candlelight at any of the excellent restaurants serving delicious Venetian food, then cap off your night with a romantic stroll down towards the Accademia Bridge over the Grand Canal.

Rome is an obvious choice for the chic, cultured couple looking for something a little more exciting. Packed with history, take a guidebook along with your adventures or book a guided tour of the city with a reputable Roman insider. It’s an excellent shopping spot and the food can’t be beat, whether you’re dining at a five-star restaurant or having gelato at a local haunt. The city also boasts an excellent nightlife and indeed comes alive as soon as the sun disappears in the horizon. There’s no shortage of places to party at, so take your partner and your dancing shoes and groove the night away.
