When you are considering a romantic trip either for a honeymoon or for a getaway with your significant other, boyfriend or girlfriend, if you really want that trip to be memorable and one for the record books, you might want to consider making the country you visit as romantic as you hope your time spent together will be. Therefore, if you are looking for the top romantic countries one will likely always top the list and that country is Italy.
There are many reasons why Italy is the top romantic destination in the world. For starters, you have Venice. This unique city, built upon the Adriatic Ocean with its canals, gondola rides, romantic restaurants and cafes as well as it festivals and numerous romantic lodging options, make this city in and of itself, a prime romantic destination.
As romantic countries go, Italy is not just Venice. For an entirely different perspective of Italy, Lake Como is an excellent choice. Positioned very near the border of Switzerland, this lake destination, surrounded by hills and mountains, is a different take on Italy. Filled with quaint and romantic villas and the crown jewel of the area, the often filmed and well know village of Bellalago, Lake Como is another popular romantic destination for good reason.
However, Italy is not tops on the list of romantic counties just for these two locations. For a more remote destination, the island of Capri, Positano on the Amalfi coast is a wonderful location. In addition, the Gulf of Poets or Taormina Sicily are also popular romantic areas that are also quite remote.
For a more populated area, one can do no better than cities like Rome, with its modern and ancient architecture mixed into one amazing and romantic city. Another popular and more populated but still romantic area is Verona.
The bottom line is that if you are looking for one of the worlds most romantic countries, Italy tops almost every list, and it is easy to see why. With so many different places, so many different geographical locations and so much natural and man made beauty to behold, it is a wonder that any other country even comes close to the romance that is inspired and rekindled in a country like Italy.
