Five Romantic Escapes for Valentine’s Day

As Valentine’s Day nears, consider an intimate escape to these idyllic spots for lovers.


Follow in the footsteps of Casanova while exploring the historic treasures, museums, fine restaurants and many pleasures of Venice. Take a leisurely Gondola ride for two along the city’s canals, take in the Renaissance architecture, and cross the charming bridges.

For a romantic dinner, consider the two Michelin-starred Glam Enrico Bartolini located at the Palazzo Venart Luxury Hotel, which is also a lovely spot to stay with a view of the Grand Canal. The contemporary tasting menus feature “Cicchetti” finger foods as a starter, with all the flavorful courses made with the finest seasonal ingredients.

Alternatively, savour the dishes outdoors at the one Michelin-starred Wistèria nestled among the flowers that give the restaurant its name. You’ll find it along the quiet side canal of Rio de la Frescada. Chef Valerio Dallamano treats dinners to contemporary dishes inspired by Venice’s gastronomic traditions on six- or eight-course tasting menus.

Fly in comfort by booking a private jet to Venice Marco Polo Airport and get to Venice by car or yacht across the lagoon.


As the setting for Romeo and Juliet, Verona has deep classical ties to romance. Verona is only an hour away from Venice by road or train for those who want to extend their romantic escape.

The Verona in Love festival takes place around Valentine’s Day with public entertainment and special treats. Visit the lovers' market at Piazza dei Signori. Stroll through the cobbled-stoned Piazza Bra near the Roman arena. Cross the restored Roman bridge of Ponte Pietra across the river Adige.

Enjoy the unique dining experience at the two Michelin-starred Casa Perbellini in a small house overlooking Piazza San Zeno. Watch the chefs work in the open-view kitchen under the watchful eye of owner-chef Giancarlo. Savour one of three tasting menus available (fish, meat or vegetarian) and the superb wine list offering an extensive selection of French wines.

Or dine at the classic Michelin-starred Il Desco in the heart of Verona, a family restaurant with a long history in the city which offers a modern spin on traditional Italian dishes inspired by son Matteo Rizzo. The salon-like ambience and fine cuisine make this restaurant a superb choice for a special occasion.

This European historic treasure offers many opportunities for romantic walks, canal boat rides, and cosy corners for lovers to snuggle in. Treat yourself to something decadently sweet at the Markt, and don’t miss Minnewaterbrug (Lovers' Bridge) over Minnewater lake—a perfect romantic setting.

Park Restaurant is ideal for a romantic dinner offering a cosy and intimate atmosphere. Run by two brothers, Axel and Frédéric Bruggeman, the former tea room in a 19th-century townhouse has become a favourite spot for traditional dining in Bruges and its environs. Enjoy the mouth-watering fresh fish and steaks.

Another cosy choice is Restaurant De Stove, located in the heart of Bruges at "Sint-Amandsstraat,” near the Grote Markt and 't Zand. The restaurant’s owners, Debbie and Nico, offer a delicious menu of traditional dishes made with the freshest seasonal ingredients, including seafood and fish from Zeebrugge.

Don’t forget to indulge in some decadent Belgian chocolate!

Fly privately to the local FBO at Oostende Bruges Intl Airport to avoid the crowds.


What could be more romantic than a trip to the lost city of Atlantis? A volcanic eruption in the 16th Century BCE shaped the Santorini we see today, and some say Atlantis was the portion of the island now underwater. Take a boat tour around the caldera, tour Santorini’s wineries and watch the sunset in Oia.

Enjoy a romantic dinner at Selene in Katikies Garden, an 11th-century Venetian monastery converted into a five-star hotel. The restaurant offers a contemporary take on traditional Santorinian and Cycladic cuisine with locally sourced, seasonal ingredients.

Book a private jet directly to the FBO at Santorini Thina Airport.

Enjoy a meal in Paris’ oldest restaurant La Tour d’Argent, which opened in 1582 and is reputed to have been a favourite of English King Henry IV. La Tour d’Argent features Michelin-starred food with views over the Seine. Chef Stéphane Haissant prepares unique dishes and the house's speciality duckling.
