The capital of romance for lovers around the world has to be Paris. Finding sheer romance in the French capital can be as simple as strolling hand in hand through a park or sharing dinner for two by candlelight. But to really say I Love You in the City of Light, surprise your special someone with a twilight dinner cruise along the River Seine to send your spirits soaring.
Venice has cast a spell over lovers since the heady days of Casanova. The Italian city’s gilded Gothic arches and hidden laneways create a bewitching world of romance, best appreciated from a cruise along the Grand Canal. Take a private gondola ride with your beloved while your gondolier serenades you, and create memories to cherish.
With the grandeur of Central Park, dinner cruises on the harbor and Empire State panoramas, New York City is pure romance. Share a romantic mid-air rendezvous with your partner over Manhattan on a private New York helicopter tour for two.
The thundering cascades of Niagara Falls spell romance and possibly a wedding for many lovers. Prepare to say "I Do" on an evening flight over the Falls, customized with limo transport or champagne and chocolates.
With replicas of Europe’s most romantic sights, how can Vegas fail to sparkle? Pretend you’re in Venice at the Venetian, stroll under the Eiffel Tower and be wowed by the Sphinx. Better yet, take a twilight flight over the Grand Canyon for a glimpse of Mother Nature at her finest.
And for more ultimate romantic experiences? Share a horse-drawn sleigh ride through the snow-covered forests surrounding Salzburg, ride in a private horse and carriage through the sultry streets of Seville, indulge in a cocktail cruise and fireside luau in Hawaii, or sip champagne on one of the world’s most celebrated beaches at Whitehaven in Australia’s Whitsunday Islands.
