Planning a trip with your partner? You’ll want to head somewhere that gets the sparks flying and brings you closer together as a couple. We all have different tastes and ideas of fun, but here are just a few romantic trip ideas you could plan in 2018.



Not only is the capital of Dublin a vibrant place to visit as a couple – and sampling Guinness together at the Storehouse is one to tick off the bucket list – but it also offers stunning scenery nearby too.


Wicklow National Park, for example, is a good example of a destination to plan a trip to – plus it’s only an hour drive from Dublin. Enjoy rolling moors, fields of stunning heather and trails that get the heart pumping. And, it’s the location where Holly meets Gerry in the romance P.S. I Love You: we’re not sure how much more romantic you can get. Visit between August and September when the heather is in bloom.



When in Rome, enjoy the romantic vibe on every cobbled street and intimate al fresco dining setting. Visit the Spanish Steps and marvel at the view over the city before moving onto Rome’s largest park with a boating lake to enjoy together. Share a pizza, enjoy the strong coffee and bask in the glow of the Trevi fountain once nighttime arrives.



This cheeky but whimsical city is the perfect destination for the loved-up couple. While less romantic elements of Amsterdam may spring to mind, there is so much more to enjoy with fairy lit bridges, bustling cafes where you can snuggle in the corner, and tandem bikes to ride along the canals. Plus, it’s only an hour away by plane if you’re flying from the UK.



This coastal town in southwestern Italy is a lover’s paradise. With bustling marinas to explore, sunkissed squares lined with cafes where you can sample real Italian coffee and 14th century architecture to explore hand in hand, it’s the perfect destination for a romantic getaway in 2018. Plan a visit to i Giardini Di Cataldo with its beautiful lemon grove farm to walk through before stopping at the bar to sample limoncello, home brewed coffee and gelato. You might just order a few bottles to arrive at the same time you return home to remind you of your romantic trip.



For the chic couple, Madrid is the perfect destination for a romantic getaway. This fashionable city offers plenty of things for the adventurous couple – sample tapas at small restaurants around the Austrias neighbourhood, take a romantic stroll around Retiro Park and marvel at the stunning gardens in the sunshine. You could even grab some lunch to take along for a small picnic by the boating lake.


Wherever you find yourself this year, having your partner along for the ride should always keep the love alive. So, choose one of these destinations for guaranteed romance and enjoy your time together.
