When it comes to romance, Italy practically invented the concept. Throughout millennia of history, couples have found love and fanned the flames of seasoned relationships in the Italian countryside. Here are just a few things about Italy that will have the most pragmatic couples swooning like newlyweds:
Unmatched Art History
Who could be more romantic than artists? Perhaps to a fault, artists are some of the most hopelessly romantic people in the world. Immerse yourselves in a culture of passion and artistic expression that has inspired the world since before the Renaissance and produced some of the most beautiful pieces in history. After a long day viewing art in person, you’re sure to find the beauty in your significant other shining even more brightly.
The country’s warmer areas, such as the regions surrounding Florence, are known for their wineries. Many of them have been producing authentic flavors for more than a thousand years. Whether you join a tour or simply sample a bottle at a local restaurant, good wine has a way of relaxing a couple and fanning the flames of love.
From rolling hills to pristine beaches and snow-capped mountain ranges, Italy has some of the most inspiring views in the whole world. No matter which city (or cities) you choose to visit, your hotel will more than likely treat you to an Instagram-worthy sunrise or sunset. Before you pull out your camera, enjoy a quiet moment with the person you love.
Boat Rides in Venice
No surprises here. This is the quintessential romantic experience in Italy. However, unlike many popular tourist picks, the boat rides in Venice absolutely exceed expectations. In fact, the whole city is aglow with an undeniable passion. For centuries, Venice has remained one of the most romantic locations on the planet.
Roma Spelled Backward is “Amor”
Since the very beginning, Italy has embraced its fiery passion and perhaps this recognition has become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Every year, millions of couples bring their love to Italy and watch it grow. These experiences have shaped Italy’s culture, making love a recognized necessity right next to food, water and oxygen. Love is at the foundation of Italy’s culture.
