4 Romantic & Budget-Friendly Couple Getaways
I’ve recently come across the fact that when you google ideas for romantic couple getaways you get the typical, glorified tourist destinations. These include expensive destinations like Paris, France or Rome, Italy. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve been to Paris twice (once with a significant other) and to Rome once and absolutely loved both locations; they are romantic, have the perfect candle-lit restaurants, and provide the perfect scenery for a loving vacation. The problem with these locations is that, especially on holidays like Valentine’s Day, they are crowded and thus over-priced. Both these locations, in general, are expensive, with restaurants sometimes costing a small fortune. Thus, I embarked on a mission to discover trending yet rather under-estimated locations, perfect for couples looking for a romantic, budget-friendly getaway. The top four “winners” were Milan & Lake Como (Italy), Budapest (Hungary), Sintra & Cascais (Portugal), and Brugge (Belgium). Some of these locations are paired up because they are near each other and therefore it is worth considering trying to consolidate the trip. Do these locations sound dreamy to you?
