Ready to make 2016 your most romantic year yet? Why not sneak away with your sweetheart to Italy for a truly memorable Valentine’s Day this year.

The opportunities for romance abound on so many of our Italy Tours and Italy Vacation Packages. Here are some of Italy’s most romantic activities for couples:

Gondola ride

In addition to various boat tours and cruises of Venice’s network of canals, couples can enjoy a classic Venice Gondola Ride Experience. You can cuddle up with your love as you glide along this historic city’s waterways, perhaps even serenaded with traditional Venetian songs by your gondolier. These elegantly handcrafted traditional wooden canal boats have wound their way through the city of Venice for centuries and offer a truly unique perspective of the centuries of architecture that line the canal routes.

Judi W of Orlando, Florida gave Avventure Bellissime five stars in September 2015 after their trip to Venice, saying in her TripAdvisor review of Tours Italy: “We did three small group tours in Venice and two in Florence with this company and all were excellent.” She praised the fluency of our guides in English and said they were very knowledgeable.

Candle-lit meal at a winery

Italy boasts very distinct wine regions, each with its own specialties - but all with renowned international reputations for exceptional winemaking. Consider booking one of our Italy wine tours and vacation experiences where you could enjoy a romantic candle-lit meal at an Italian winery, learning together about fine Italian wines as you reconnect and rekindle your romance.

A recent reviewer on TripAdvisor, hmacdonald_11 of Leamington, Canada says in her October 2015 review that her Small Group Tuscany Day Tour from Rome was, “a great day....Highly recommended and well worth the money.”

Embark on the adventure of a lifetime

Several of our Italy vacation packages offer the adventure of a lifetime with well-planned itineraries that balance scheduled excursions with free time, but one of the most popular is our 8-Day Rome to Venice Essence of Italy Tour. You’ll get to see the renowned sights of Rome, Florence, and Venice together, staying in selected four-star hotels that offer a full American-style buffet breakfast.

Often couples travel to Italy together, to enjoy discovering the best of Italy on a sort of extended double-date vacation. Demedis of Huntingtown, Maryland says in her July 2015 review on TripAdvisor, My husband and I went to Italy with another couple. We booked...the Essence of Italy tour through Avventure Bellissime.” She says the tour guides were all good and that, “We especially enjoyed the tour of Rome with Francesca, who was so energetic and enthusiastic and the tour of Venice with Susan, who had a dry wit and made us laugh.” They praised other staff for their helpfulness and says, “The four of us were very pleased with our selection of tour groups. Thank you, Avventure Bellissime.

Book a quick getaway to Italy

Don’t have time for an extended holiday? Make the most of the time you have with a whirlwind vacation in Italy. Does it get more romantic than being swept away to Europe for a few short days of love, adventure, and beauty? We should highlight that Avventure Bellissime curently has special offers on Italy semi-private vacation packages.

Is it worth booking short trips or excursions with Avventure Bellissime? Our client reviewers think so, earning us a Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor for 2019 and previous years. In September 2015 Ciara4300 of Orlando, Florida gave us top marks on TripAdvisor for a great tour of Rome. She notes that they booked with Avventure Bellissime for tours in Rome and Venice in 2012 and that this next trip was with other relatives. “Everyone in our group of 6 was so impressed and enchanted with [our tour guide]! The tours are everything they advertise!

Just two weeks ago PhilaTravelingFamily of Philadelphia, PA said, “We loved Avventure Bellissime” and explained they had a week in Rome and booked tours through Avventure Bellissime on four days. They say, “we loved touring with Avventure Bellissime and would use them again either in Rome or elsewhere.

Enjoy a romantic hideaway

Italian has several romantic destinations, including some away from the big crowds and big cities. Consider a quiet getaway off the beaten path in charming Riomaggiore, which is home to the pathway called Via dell’ Amore (Way of Love) where lovers have walked together for generations. Another possibility is discovering the secrets of the five villages of the Cinque Terre together.

JackiefromNS said in her October 2015 TripAdvisor review that she and her husband weren’t sure about booking a tour but, “it turned out to be the best decision...it was a fantastic trip!” She says that during their 12-Day Enchanting Italy Trip (which is on special now!) they enjoyed their time in Cinque Terre and, “even managed to hike from Monterossa to Vernazza, and from Vernazza to Corniglia.” They appreciated amazing views from their room in Manorola and say: “We would recommend this tour and we now have several friends who will be following us in taking this wonderful trip.”A taste of Italy at home
