Romantic Getaways for Valentine’s Day in Tuscany
With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to think about how to celebrate this special day with your sweet heart. Have you ever dreamed to invite the person you love to celebrate Valentine’s Day in Tuscany?
Even if I think that we should celebrate the love for our partner every day (and not only a day a year), St Valentine’s Day could be a good occasion for those couples that wish, and need, to take some time off from the daily routine.
I would definitely be happy to receive as gift, an unexpected proposal to spend Valentine’s Day in Tuscany.
I wrote this post to suggest four different proposals to live an unforgettable Valentine’s Day in Tuscany. And why not… to declare your love with a unique marriage proposal or to renew your vows.
Four charming ideas to spend Valentine’s Day in Tuscany

Florence, together with Rome and Venice, is the most romantic city of Italy. You should start your romantic day with a kiss at the Piazzale Michelangelo with the city at your feet. Climb down till the Arno River walking inside the hidden Garden of Roses and the suburb of San Niccolò.
