5 European Destinations for a Romantic Getaway this Valentine's DayInsuraTrip Travel Insurance have put together their top 5 European destinations for love, romance, sight-seeing and that well-deserved, relaxing couples break for Valentine's Day.







(1) Sorrento, Italy

When you think of romance and Italy, Venice and Rome come to mind instantly but what about Sorrento for a change of pace? Sorrento is surrounded with picturesque scenery, quaint cobbled streets, colourful flowers and even views of the famous Mount Vesuvius in Naples. Whether you’re looking to relax, sight-see or eat good food, Sorrento has it all. The beautiful towns of Positano and Amalfi are within easy reach too for a romantic holiday destination.


(2) Porto, Portugal

Portugal’s second city is the perfect spot for couples seeking a little romance this February. The gentle pace of this city captures you and eases you into a different way of life while you’re there.

Characterised by winding streets, vibrant street art and port wine bars in abundance, Porto is a unique and quirky city and the perfect place to relax, enjoy local wines and indulge your taste buds with local delicacies such as a Francesinha, a meat filled sandwich covered in melted cheese.


(3) Reykjavik, Iceland

Reykjavik has huge potential to be named as one of the most romantic destinations on earth, especially if you’re visiting between the months of September to April.

During these months the famous Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) are most present in the sky, making for great viewing pleasure and as it can reach temperatures as low as -12, it’s the perfect weather for snuggling. While you’re in town why not take a trip to the Blue Lagoon to relax and warm up in a toasty geothermal hot tub!


(4) Santorini, Greece

Santorini is one of Greece’s top hot spots for romance. White washed buildings, heavenly sunsets and views for miles of the Aegean Sea, it’s no wonder this destination attracts over 1.5 million tourists every year.

While you’re in town, head to Kamari Village to visit the world famous open-air cinema or enjoy a wine tasting experience at Santo Wines which also offers spectacular views of the whole island, day or night.

The perfect spot for a valentine’s break. 


(5) Valletta, Malta

Though Valletta may be the smallest European Capital City, don’t be fooled. There’s plenty to do and see during a romantic getaway.

Dripping in military history, take a trip to the National War Museum which overlooks the Grand Harbour. A tour here even takes you below the streets to view war shelters and original fighter control rooms where WWII operations were planned. For something a little more light-hearted, as the European Capital of Culture, you won’t have to look far to find a festival, theatre or Live music act to keep you entertained.

Also, whilst in town, pay a visit to Café Minas for some tasty, authentic Maltese food or The Rootz for something a little more special if you’re celebrating.

Whichever destination you choose to visit this year for a romantic getaway, it’s important not to forget to buy your travel insurance. Our InsuraTrip Travel Insurance policies offer 4 different levels of cover and can include up to £7,500 protection from cancellation, up to £750 for missed departure, up to £3,000 for lost or damaged baggage, up to £10,000,000 for emergency medical expenses and much more.
