Stuck for ideas on what to surprise your sweetheart with this Valentine’s Day? We’ve got you covered. We polled our travel advisors, narrowed it down, and here is the top 10 destinations they would travel to with their sweetheart!


  1. Venice! The waterways, the gondolas, the food, the beautiful alleys/streets……need we say more?!?
  1. Quebec City – European charm, restaurants with an intimate atmosphere and beautiful historic streets covered in snow all add to Québec City’s romantic reputation, but romance is in the eye of the beholder and there are plenty of romantic winter activities for couples to do in Québec City that also add a sense of adventure and fun.
  1. Victoria- Victoria is a Canadian Stunner! Victoria is considered one of Canada’s most romantic cities, thanks to its picturesque downtown area. It’s dotted with Victorian buildings and the nearby harbour is home to most of the city’s most iconic sights. The city is navigable on foot, allowing for intimate strolls by the city’s charming landmarks.
  1. Dublin Ireland – Dublin is a city that’s as intimate as a village and as friendly as an Irish pub. Framed by mountains, centred on a river and edged by a beautiful bay, the city’s streets and alleys are filled with vibrant art and historic buildings, hip cafés and traditional pubs.. Walk the streets and you’ll feel the energy of over 1,000 years of history, as echoes of the Vikings mix with buzzing boutiques, cobbled streets reverberate with the sounds of buskers, and 18th century parks play host to festivals, film and food markets. And did you know that St. Valentine is buried in Dublin? It’s true! St. Valentine, the patron saint of love, was executed in Rome and buried there in the 3rd century. His body was later exhumed and taken to Dublin.
  1. Monte Carlo – For a dose of romantic Hollywood glamour on the French Riviera, look no farther than Monte Carlo. Its extravagant hotels, stunning coastal views, and some of the best restaurants and spas in the Mediterranean make Monaco a staple on our list for romantic destinations. Fly in via helicopter (just a seven-minute ride from the airport) for the most memorable views and to really ‘wow’ your sweetheart.
  1. Barcelona, Spain – Barcelona is a Cosmopolitan couple’s dream with seaside cafes through the winding Barri Gòtic.  Climbing Gaudi’s surreal Sagrada Familia or the vibrant Parc Guell (both offer great city views). Stop by one of the city’s famous markets, La Boqueria or Santa Caterina, for fresh foods and great coffee. You’ll fall in love with this city—and each other—every time.
  1. FLORENCE – A trip to Florence is a necessity for a pair of fashion or art lovers. Venture together to see masterpieces like Michelangelo’s David, or the homes of Gucci and Ferragamo. Almost every hotel here boasts marble fireplaces, classical sculptures, paintings, and frescoes. Great wine, food, and so much more!
  1. Montreal – With a diverse landscape consisting of historical sites, beautiful parks, scenic views, and cozy restaurants and bars, Montreal is one of the most romantic cities in the world. AND we are so lucky that it is just a train ride/car ride away.
  1. Paris – Paris is a given on every list of romantic destinations. However touristy, the staples never disappoint. Lovebirds can explore the endless corridors of the Louvre and picnic with fresh crepes on the lawn by the Eiffel Tower (or with a bottle of wine, at night, when it’s a twinkling glow). Take the metro up to the cobblestone streets of Montmartre and see the view from Sacre Coeur, spend a day marveling at the Latin Quarter’s architecture, or take a stroll through the Tuileries Garden dotted with bronzed sculptures and fountains. Paris is never short on beauty, history, or diversions for even the most discerning couple. Also – The Eiffel Tower is the perfect place for a proposal!
  1. South Africa in luxury tents – What an amazing destination to share with your partner.  The luxurious tents are very romantic and it is a very relaxed stay doing game drives in the morning and afternoon. Great wine, luxury tents, and seeing the Big Five? Yes, please.
