What are the most romantic getaways for couples that are perfect in February or the whole winter? Our recommendations are: Paris, the Maldives, Ostuni, or Kraków. Why did we choose these 4 destinations? Find it all out below!

The Best Places for Couples to Travel in the Winter

So, let’s get down to it, shall we? What are the best destinations for romantic escapes in the second month of the year? Here are our choices:

Paris – The City of Love

First on our list is Paris. Just the fact that it’s called the city of love will make the getaway more romantic, but if you know what to do there, your trip will be perfect.

While Paris is appreciated in the summer, it retains its charm when the winter comes. Its vast gardens still stun with their beauty when nature wakes up in February, and its architecture is even more gripping due to the cozy white coat of snow. Add to that the delicious wine, and you get a truly memorable experience.

What to do on your romantic getaway in Paris?

  • Sip on champagne on the top of the Eiffel Tower.
  • Go on a romantic walk through the streets of Montmartre.
  • Have a romantic dinner with a view of the Eiffel Tower.
  • Visit one of the many vine bars.
  • Take a night cruise on the Seine.

The Maldives

The next point on our list of the best romantic getaways in February is the Maldives. They will be the perfect place if you prefer summer over winter, as the temperatures there reach about 30℃ (86℉) at the time.

What to do in the Maldives?

  • Enjoy a romantic dinner on a ferry.
  • Organize a beach dinner.
  • Have an all-inclusive time in one of the luxury resorts.
  • Find a secluded beach and enjoy it – just the two of you.

Ostuni (Italy)

This charming town in Italy is one of the best places to travel to as a couple. Known for all the buildings being all white, this Ostuni will make you feel as if you were in a romantic movie.

The town offers several luxury hotels and marvelous walking tours, but what’s most important is: the delicious cuisine. If you visit this Southern Italian wonderland, you’re bound to have the time of your life, enjoying the views during the day and having a romantic dinner at night. What exactly should you see and do?

  • Stroll through the streets or replay your favorite scenes from romantic movies.
  • Taste the delicious Ostuni friselle.
  • Enjoy a romantic, Italian-style dinner.


When planning a trip just for the two of you, remember about Kraków – one of the most beautiful cities in Eastern Europe. There are many romantic sites in this city, so what’s worth your attention? Here are our suggestions!

  • Visit Bernatek Footbridge (Kładka Ojca Bernatka), which is characterized by hundreds of padlocks with couples’ initials on them. Perhaps you will even pin your own padlock there?
  • Stroll through the Botanical Garden and admire the beauty of flowers and trees from all over the world.
  • Admire the view from one of the 5 mounds – we highly recommend the Kościuszko Mound, surrounded by an old Austrian fort!
  • Embark on a romantic tour of the city in a horse cab – you’ll find them in the Old Town.
