Paris, France

Paris, the capital city of France, is officially known worldwide as the 'city of love'. With an abundance of unique art, mesmerizing architecture and fairytale views, there's plenty of romantic things to do within the city. Express your love by visiting the Eiffel Tower, take a leisurely stroll along the Seine River and visit the wall of love in Square Jehan Rictus Place des Abesses, Montmartre, where you'll find the words 'I Love You' written in 250 different languages.

The best airport to fly to that's closest to the Paris city centre is Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG). It's a 30-40 minute drive away from Paris dependent on traffic, or you can hop on the train on the RER B line which takes around 30 minutes.

Santorini, Greece

The Greek island of Santorini is labelled as one of the most beautiful and romantic destinations on Earth. Consisting of whitewashed cave houses, incredible turquoise views and white sandy beaches, it's the ideal setting for those looking to celebrate love, especially with candle-lit dinners and hand-holding along the beaches. We recommend visiting Kamari beach for romantic walks as well as seeing Akrotiri lighthouse and the ruins of Byzantine Castle if you're looking for a bit of adventure with your loved one.

If you're flying to Santorini from the US, you may need to catch a connecting flight from Munich, Zurich, Doha, Frankfurt or Athens. There are direct routes available if you're flying to Santorini from within Europe. Santorini Airport (JTR) is only a 12-minute drive away from Thera, the capital of Santorini - unfortunately, there is no public transport available between the airport and Thera since the island is very small so we recommend hiring a car or taking a taxi to wherever you need to go.

The Maldives is a must if you're planning to get away for Valentine's Day! Located in the central Indian Ocean, it's known as the world's most romantic archipelago. It's perfect for couples looking for a quiet atmosphere with privacy on private sandy beaches. But it's also great for any couple looking to take part in activities such as diving, canoeing, snorkelling and sailing around the lagoons.

Flying to the Maldives is straightforward - you'll likely be flying to Malé, the densely populated capital of the Maldives, before setting off to one of the other islands in the region. If you're flying from the US, you'll need to make a connecting flight in Doha; if you're flying from the UK you'll likely need to stop over at Dubai or Istanbul although some direct flights are operated by British Airways. Once you land at Velana International Airport (MLE) in Malé, it's a 15 minute drive to Malé, or you can catch domestic flights from the airport to the other surrounding islands.

Venice, Italy

Have you ever wanted to ride glamorous gondolas along the canals in Venice? Why not take your other half and celebrate Valentine's Day in style? Venice is one of the most popular cities to visit for Valentine's Day, simply because of the opportunity to experience a romantic ride along the canals in a gondola but also because of the charming alleyways populated with unique cafes. You can even visit the Campanile de San Marco Tower where you can enjoy a 360-degree view of the entire city.

To reach Venice, you'll need to fly to Venice Marco Polo Airport (VCE). If you're flying from the US, you can fly direct from New York or Atlanta. Once you land at the airport, it's a 20-minute drive to Venice. There is also public transport available with a bus route lasting around 25 minutes.
