Nothing is more romantic than a glass of fine Italian wine at a local vineyard, right on the shores of one of the most beautiful and charming cities in the globe. You can rent a kayak and go on a sea-going adventure exploring the towns hidden beaches. It’s romantic to just walk through the streets.

3. South of France
