How do you define "romantic"? This word stirs up all kinds of images and for each one of us it's a different story. From scenes of breathtaking vistas, to a solo moment on a beach, or sipping red wine in a piazza. Maybe it's being serenaded on a Venetian gondola or joyful moments on a bike ride with your family.
