Flamenco Dance Workshop Seville TwoFlamenco Workshop in Seville

Now flamenco is, along with the tango, probably the most romantic form of dancing there is, full of soulful expression, heartbreak and longing, tied in with irresistible rhythms. Another reason we love this experience is that Seville is without doubt one of Europe’s most beautiful cities, and the lesson takes place in an atmospheric courtyard. You have a professional instructor to tell you about the origins, passions and techniques of flamenco dancing, before you try out some moves on the dancefloor. Seriously addictive.

Bubble Hotel FranceOvernight stay in a French ‘Bubble Hotel’

Many couples choose to go away for Valentine’s Day – it’s always good for a relationship to escape your routine and spend some alone time alone together once in awhile. This is a truly unique hotel stay though – in the countryside just outside Marseilles there is a small resort where you sleep overnight in a giant plastic bubble. Sounds a bit weird but wait until you try it. The bubbles are supremely comfortable, and transparent at the top, so you have stunning views of the night sky. Jump in the jacuzzi and pop the cork on a bottle of champagne, and bubble your way to ecstasy.

Romantic Flight with Hot Air Balloon over Vilnius Oldtown for TwoHot Air Balloon Ride over Vilnius Old Town

The Lithuanian capital is one of Europe’s most attractive, and its Old Town is a masterpiece, an architectural mix of Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque and Neoclassical styles. Thousands of sightseers wander its streets every year, but very few see it from above. A hot air balloon is probably one of the most elegant and romantic forms of travel there is, and this journey takes you over most of the city’s most famous landmarks such as the Town Hall Square and the Presidential Palace for dramatic bird’s-eye views.
