With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, we can’t help but be thinking of all things romance. While Valentine’s Day is often associated with chocolates, champagne, and jewelry, we think more personal, romantic experiences are the proper way to celebrate it. Sure, we’ve already had our fair share of Valentine’s-worthy romantic experiences in Europe, but we don’t plan on stopping anytime soon! This year we’ll be heading to Zermatt, Switzerland, with another couple, to celebrate the weekend before. Long days of stunning mountain views followed by evenings in cozy après-ski bars sounds like the perfect way to make cupid proud.
Valentine’s Day is a great time for a romantic getaway, but we love romantic travel year round, and encourage all couples to travel together. To help you brainstorm your next (or first) romantic adventure, we’ve rounded up the most romantic experiences in Europe from some of our favorite traveling couples. Europe itself is incredibly romantic, so these experiences are the best of the best.
