Valentine's Day: An Italian Love Affair | Print |  E-mail
Saturday, 22 January 2011 22:44

When in love, one is showered with flowers and candy, and your ears are filled with the sound of music. It's no wonder then that so many newlyweds flock to Italy for their honeymoon. Valentine's Day is just as special, and travelers come to bacio throughout the boot.

Terni is in the center of Italy, and is appropriately home to the tomb of the Saint of Love. Sweets devotees come for Cioccolentino – a celebration of love, passion and mouth-watering chocolate from February 11-14. Stay for the Milky Way, a competition to create a 200-foot-long chocolate block in less than two hours.

From here, take your Eurail Italy Pass and head four hours to Bologna for an evening of opera at the Teatro Comunale. This is one of Italy's greatest venues, and sings out "romance" with its golden, arched balconies.

We think a fitting end to a romantic trip to Italy is a journey to Verona. Just 90 minutes from Bologna, this star-crossed lover locale pulls out all the stops for Valentine's Day. On February 12-14, the Piazza dei Signori sees red, as heart-shaped lanterns illuminate the streets. Stay for the free concerts, or just have your significant other whisper sweet nothings in your ear. Now that's amore.
