Skip the Chocolates and Flowers and Go Straight for The Heart This Valentine’s Day
Who says romance is dead? Not us! We’re all heart here at talkholiday and because we just love a bit of soppy mush, we’ve put together some of the best Valentines breaks around right now to save you the trouble of searching for that perfect break to surprise your loved ones with.
Now that the shops are packed with red roses, chocolate hearts and all manner of Valentine’s day trinkets, love is surely on your mind. It’s all we can think about this week and we wanted to give you plenty of time to plan and book a naughty weekend away. Sure, it’s a cliche and you don’t need to show someone you love them on one day of the year but it’s a good excuse to spice up your love life and take a few days out to spend quality time together.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve been together for years and you’ve fallen into the comfy zone or if you’ve just started seeing each other and in the heady ‘can’t get enough of each other’ phase. Taking a relaxing break in a beautiful place is another life experience to share and the memories of which will last a lifetime. A lot longer than a box of chocolates, put it that way.
Do we hear wedding bells? If you’re not already hitched, you could always pop the question on your Valentines break? You could be jetting off to some of the world’s most romantic locations to renew your love for each other. Even if you’ve been together for years, why not just add a little bit of sparkle with one of these dream trips.
Here’s a rundown of some of our best romantic city breaks for two this February.
Paris City Breaks
If romance is what you’re after then you really can’t go wrong with Paris. Just imagine a lazy few days, strolling by the River Seine, hand in hand with the man or woman of your dreams. Some of our travel partners are offering lovely trips to the French capital and the prices are sure to tug at your heart strings 😉

Venice City Breaks
One of the most seductive places on earth, Venice is magical at any time of year but it’s especially romantic in the winter months. If you’re looking for the perfect backdrop to your love story, this is the spot. Imagine sneaking a kiss or a cuddle by the banks of the Grand Canal or as you wander through the maze of pretty alleyways? You can’t help but be seduced by this city’s spell.

Verona City Breaks
It doesn’t get much more romantic than this. Verona was the setting for William Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers, Romeo and Juliet. This delightful city is also packed with cultural gems…and beautiful people! You might only have eyes for each other on your trip but do take in some of the wonderful attractions and impressive architecture.

New York City Breaks
Why not set off on your very own affair to remember in the city that never sleeps? New York is becoming more and more affordable and do-able for a mini break these days and the list of romantic movie scenes you can recreate are plenty. Remember there’s always Tiffany’s for picking out a nice piece of jewellery as a memento of your trip? A diamond ring perhaps? 😉

And if you’re looking for something super sexy and ultra luxrious, The Witchery by the Castle in Edinburgh is the last word in opulence.
