The Ultimate Lovers’ Trip To The World’s 10 Most Romantic Destinations

VeryFirstTo exclusively presents The Ultimate Lovers’ Trip To The World’s 10 Most Romantic Destinations. In a survey conducted amongst VeryFirstTo's opinion-forming members around the globe, it was revealed that Venice is now deemed a more romantic destination than Paris.

The research was conducted by VeryFirstTo on behalf of Hurlingham Travel, in order to establish which destinations should appear in the truly remarkable Valentine’s vacation the travel company has organised.

This exceptional amorous adventure features the locations which have earned a place in the top ten of the most romantic destination league table (listed below in order of popularity): 

Venice, Italy
Paris, France
Santorini, Greece
The Maldives, Republic of The Maldives
Florence, Italy
Kauai, Hawaii, USA
Rome, Italy
Saint Lucia, Caribbean
Koh Samui, Thailand
St Moritz, Switzerland

You will spend a considerable amount of time in Italy, which, thanks to the seductive appeal of Venice, Florence, and Rome, must be acknowledged as the world’s most romantic country, as well as in seven other destinations where love is constantly in the air. They will be staying at the most romantic and luxurious hotels and greeted by the sound of love songs in each with a petal-filled bath surrounded by scented candles on offer. You will also enjoy the finest quality tours at each destination each invariably ending in a candle-lit dinner at the finest restaurant in the area.

The survey asked participants: “Which destination is the most romantic in the world.” Whilst Paris has consistently topped previous surveys, Venice has eclipsed it thanks to its über evocative gondola rides, stirring opera, lavish baroque buildings and dreamy bridges, canals and piazzas. It is no accident that this city is home to Casanova, one of the world’s most famous lovers. Those surveyed were also especially influenced by the iconic monuments, beautiful architecture and mouth watering food of Paris; the exquisite multi-coloured cliffs of Santorini; and the white sands, swaying palms and crystal blue waters of The Maldives.
