When it comes to a romantic European escape or a once-in-a-lifetime honeymoon, our travel experts have more than a few unique ideas up our sleeves.
Below are a pick of some of our favourite romantic European holiday ideas for when one destination just isn’t quite enough – and for when boutique is definitely best.
Culture, history & beach - Greece
Mixing the history of Athens with the breathtaking, picture perfect island of Crete, is never going to disappoint. Take in the majestic Acropolis and explore this ancient city before heading for our favourite Greek hideaway, Domes of Elounda. Affordable luxury at its best.
Italian Lakes & Sardinian Sand
City, lakes and beach – the ultimate combination right? We certainly think so. Italy is without a doubt the classic destination for a spot of romance, and this is the way to do it. Begin by exploring Rome; hop across for fine food and finer beaches in Sardinia before heading for the banks of Lake Como.
Buzzing Barcelona and Ibiza
For lovers wanting designer accommodation in the heart of a cool city followed by some stylish party time on the white Isle, this is perfect. Start in buzzing Barcelona before hopping over to Ibiza to explore the pristine beaches, and of course the notorious night life.
Classic Italy – Venice, Florence, Rome
A classic slice of all things Italian is a hard thing to beat. With all the cultural big hitters in one trip, this is the ultimate way to experience the best of Italy. Begin on the canals of Venice, head for the rolling hills beyond Florence and end with a few nights in Rome. Perfect.
Dalmation Island Hopping in Croatia
Dubrovnik to Korcula, Hvar to Split, island hopping around Croatia can make for the perfect way to soak up the best of all worlds. Add in a trip over to Montenegro and the new Aman Hotel at the end of your trip to really make it a European escape like no other.
