A gondola ride and a bottle of wine

A romantic holiday in Venice is incomplete without the gondola ride. It might be expensive, but it is one of the most romantic things that you can do with your special someone. And it might be the reason why you have planned to go to Venice in the first place. And there's no better way to experience the ride than with a good bottle of wine. Go make a toast with your loved one as the gondola floats through the city's backstreet canals.

Best panoramic view of the city of bridges

If you want a different perspective of the city, then head to St Marks Square. There you will find the Campanile bell tower, which is now of the most popular attractions of the city. For a minimal fee, you can go to the top of the bell tower and enjoy the view of the canals and the roofs of Venice. It is recommended to go around sunset to experience something special with your loved one.

Have dinner near the Rialto Bridge

The most famous bridge in Venice is the Rialto Bridge, and there are lots of restaurants near its location. While it might get crowded in the area, it is one of the most romantic places in the city. There you can sample authentic Italian pasta and a glass of wine as you and your partner look out at the gondolas floating along the Grand Canal and going under the Rialto Bridge.

Take a stroll around the city

After the dinner near the Rialto Bridge, the most romantic way to spend the evening is to take a stroll around the city. You don't need to have a map to enjoy the sights that Venice has to offer. There are lots of landmarks around the city that you are never too far from a main waterway or a plaza. The city is also a safe place to take a walk at night. Make sure that you take your eyes off your partner from time to time to see the old warehouses, palaces, and merchants' homes that have been abandoned for a long time.

As you can see, Venice has a lot to offer to couples. It is the best place to rekindle lost love or start a new one. Whether it is the gondola ride or the Rialto Bridge, there is something about the City of Bridges that makes people fall in love all over again.
