3 romantic destinations to take your Valentine

written by Webjet Australia January 29, 2015

Looking for a unique and exciting way to celebrate the most romantic day of the year? With Valentine's Day just around the corner, now is the time to start planning a loved-up trip abroad with your partner.

If celebrating in Saint Valentine's birthplace isn't quite your idea of a romantic adventure, here are three other destinations where you and your loved one can enjoy each other's company.

Verona, Italy

Perhaps the most famous story of love and loss, Romeo and Juliet is a timeless tale of two star-crossed lovers. While your relationship might not mirror the feud between the Capulets and Montagues, their home is a great place to celebrate love and life.

Verona, in the north of Italy, is filled with romantic and historic tourist spots. Those with a love for all things Shakespeare can visit Juliet's balcony and leave a personalised poem or letter dedicated to loved ones.

Alternatively, you can wander the gorgeous river banks hand-in-hand with your special someone or explore some of the Roman ruins scattered throughout this stunning city.

Love, Canada

For something a little off the beaten track, how about a trip to snowy central Canada?

A tiny village in the province of Saskatchewan, Love is home to fewer than 80 people most of the year, yet it comes alive on the most romantic day. Around 600 people visit the remote location annually to take part in the love-filled festivities.

This year, the 44th annual Valentine's Festival will feature a steak dinner, winter activities, fireworks and the crowning of the King and Queen of Valentines. 

There is also an option for couples who can't make the trip, as the Love post office offers a special service. Romantics from across the world will request their mail is sent via the tiny village, which then uses a stamp featuring a teddy bear holding a heart to forward the letter on to their loved on.

Seoul, South Korea

Women who want to spoil their man will do well to head to South Korea for the Valentine's holiday. February 14 in Seoul is dedicated to giving gifts of chocolate to the men in your life, making it a great destination for those a little more alternative than most.

Then, if you are willing to extend your trip for a month or longer, South Koreans celebrate a different romance-fuelled holiday on the 14th of every month. How about White Day in March, where men return the favour by giving gifts to women, or June 14th, which is lovingly known as Kiss Day.

These destinations are just a few of the exciting locations where you and your special someone can truly celebrate your relationship in style. Now is the time to get planning, as February 14 will be here before you know it!
