Home of Aphrodite, the Goddess of love, beauty and sexuality – Cyprus is surely a must-pick for those feeling all mushy. In fact, one of the most famous places for worshipping this romantic goddess, as well as being a hugely popular spot in Cyprus, is Paphos. Selected as a European Capital of Culture for 2017, this gorgeous coastal city offers not only sun and sand, but archaeology, history and culture.
Clusters of colourful towns nestled into the Italian Riviera coastline offer the perfect backdrop for a romantic break. There are five towns to choose from or visit them all! Remember to book soon to avoid missing out as Italy is now limiting the number of visitors to this beautiful region this summer.
Relax under the Algarve sun before taking an evening stroll around the largest marina in Portugal, flanked by a host of spectacular restaurants and bars. Visit Vilamoura for a relaxing couples holiday. To make your trip just that extra bit special, try a luxury stay at The Lake Spa Resort.
Perhaps one of the best places to enjoy the sunset in Europe, Santorini is an amazing spot for a couple’s retreat. The white-washed village of Oia on this volcanic island is simply stunning for a romantic sunset.
