1. Paris

Arguably the most romantic city in the world, Paris is one of the top destinations for couples. Whisk your loved one up to the top of the Eiffel Tower, before enjoying a candlelit meal for two at one of the city's traditional restaurants or perhaps take an evening stroll along the illuminated Champs-Elysees.

Getting there: Fly from a wide selection of regional airports to Paris Charles de Gaulle airport. Or, if the thought of flying puts you on edge, why not take the Eurostar from London St Pancras Station.

2. Venice

Discover the heart of Venice on a romantic city break. Enjoy a gondola ride along the maze of canals and explore the city hand in hand, from the famous Bridge of Sighs to the magnificent Palace of the Doges or perhaps take in an opera at La Fenice.

Getting there: With direct regional flights to Venice, getting there is easy. The only difficult thing will be deciding what to pack!

3. Greek Islands

Small villages clinging to hillsides, secluded bays and crystal clear waters, the picture-postcard Greek Islands are the perfect romantic getaway. Island-hopping is a breeze, although you may struggle to see them all on one holiday! Enjoy romantic walks, snorkel hand in hand between vibrant coral reefs and watch the sun set over the Aegean Sea.

Getting there: Many travellers fly into Athens. However, it is possible to fly from the UK to a wide variety of the islands.
