Walk hand in hand through the best of Italy and Spain on a handcrafted getaway designed just for two. Exquisite destinations set the scene, from historic cities to artisanal towns to Mediterranean villages of color and cobbles. Celebrations revolve around new experiences such as tapas hopping, Chianti vineyards, and driving a vintage Fiat 500. There’s also plenty of space and time for romance to thrive in Florence, Cinque Terre, Lake Como, Madrid, and Seville.
Florence – Landing in Tuscany
When you touch down in Florence, domes will set the scene for your vacation. So many churches and cathedrals stand proud across the city, and their summits glow in the afternoon light. Beneath them, you will find piazzas, places where local people take a stroll or congregate on terraces. You can smell the espressos down narrow lanes and sense the inimitability on a first walk through Florence’s old urban core. This is a city built upon the beauty of the Renaissance, and it’s a particularly inspiring place to be from late afternoon to sunset. At this time of day, you don’t need a guide. You can go out exploring, just the two of you in Italy’s most romantic city.

Romance thrives easily in Italy and Spain. Watch the sunset from a village as the light clings to Mediterranean cliffs. Hop between tapas bars in Seville’s lively old quarter. Laze an afternoon away at a waterside Lake Como café or a Tuscan vineyard or a Moorish alcazar. There will also be candlelit dinners and many other classical scenes, but when the destinations are so exquisite, you don’t always need something extra special. Just toast to two and walk hand in hand through places that seem to come from a dream.
This handcrafted tour will take you to the most romantic destinations in Italy and Spain. These two countries are dotted with unique experiences, so there’s always a memorable way to go out exploring. The first stop will be Florence, a city of the Renaissance and a gateway to the rest of Tuscany. Next, you will travel to Vernazza, a quiet village on the Cinque Terre, perched just above the Mediterranean. Then, visit Bellagio and a lakeside hotel on Lake Como, where there is a possibility for adventure, but the experience mostly concerns romantic downtime. Those three stops in Italy will include a few treats as you travel between them, such as a visit to Da Vinci’s The Last Supper in Milan and 12th-century Pisa.
Fly from Milan to Madrid and the Spanish capital will be the next place you walk hand in hand with your loved one. Stop to try chocolate and churros, sip wines on the Plaza Mayor, find yourself at an Egyptian temple, and spend most of day ten in nearby Segovia. Then, take the train to Seville, a city with much passion and amorous energy. You’ll sense it on the streets of the old quarter, feel it during a flamenco performance, and taste it while you go tapas hopping. Whether it’s a languid morning or a full day of exploring, the experience for two will always be authentic.
