Romantic Getaways

Destinations: Montréal, Barcelona, Paris, Rome, New Orleans

Activities: Boating, Eat, Hiking, Horseback Riding, Hot Air Ballooning, Museums, Safaris, Shopping, Sightseeing, Sleep, Spas, Wine Tasting

Whether you’re planning your honeymoon or starting to use the phrase “the honeymoon’s over” frequently, a romantic getaway is just the thing to inject some passion into your life.

Leave the kids at home and take a couples cruise, arrange an amorous getaway at a beach or mountain resort, or try a food and wine tour through new territory.

There are many options for couples looking to escape the day-to-day and get better acquainted (or re-acquainted). Paris has always attracted couples interested in sampling life’s finer things, as have most major destinations in Italy: Venice, Florence and Rome (the City of Love). California’s Napa Valley has plenty of romantic appeal thanks to the wealth of that most passion-inducing beverage—wine. Finally, island destinations such as isolated Faafu Atoll in the Maldives, offer beautiful scenery for crowd-weary couples.
