Valentine's day is coming up! Here is a lovely guest post from Catherine Moraru for those looking for a romantic holiday!
Head off on a romantic break to Europe this Valentine’s Day
Heading off on a short break for Valentine’s Day is an excellent gift idea, and with so many budget travel offers around at the moment it might not be as expensive as you first think.
The question is, however, with so much choice, where do you go?
Paris is, obviously, the first choice for a romantic getaway for many people, and for good reason. With iconic sights such as the Eiffel Tower and the Notre Dame cathedral, and countless fabulous restaurants and hotels, you’ll never be short of something to do. The Eiffel Tower tends to be rather busy around Valentine’s Day, but the atmosphere is sure to be amazing. If you’d prefer to experience Paris from another angle, then head to the banks of the river Seine and hop aboard a riverboat. It’s well worth waiting and boarding one that’s heading to the Île de la Cité in order to grab a little slice of romance in the middle of the river. This manicured island is crossed by the Pont Neuf bridge and is renowned as one of the most romantic spots in the city.

For something a little more out of the ordinary, head to Istanbul. Although Turkey may not immediately spring to mind as a top romantic destination, a 45-minute ferry ride from Istanbul takes you out to a cluster of nine islands that prove to be hidden gems. Sitting in the Sea of Marmara, the Princes’ Islands are perfectly idyllic due to the fact that – apart from service vehicles – all motorised transport is banned. The only way to experience the island of your choice is by foot, bicycle, or in a horse and cart, allowing you to get away from the hassles of everyday life and spend some uninterrupted quality time with your other half. The islands also boast their own rich history and culture, ensuring that there’s always something new for you to discover. If you can’t find the time to escape to Europe this year, isme.com has some fantastic Valentine’s Day gift ideas, making it easy to find the perfect gift for your partner.
