2. Corfu, Greece "We explored our local area of Liapades, and the next day we found the Corfu Trail and followed it to Paleokastritsa- beautiful village."

Lastminute.com reviewer Katie shares, "We explored our local area of Liapades, and the next day we found the Corfu Trail and followed it to Paleokastritsa- beautiful village. Here we ventured around and went to the aquarium- definitely worth a visit. The final day was spent relaxing on Liapades beach. I'd definitely recommend bringing hiking or walking clothes and following the Corfu Trail as it goes around most of the island. Finding some of the small villages, such as Liapades, is also definitely worth a visit as you can fully embrace the Greek culture. De-stressing tips: Hiking. Relaxing on the beach. Sightseeing places: Lakones, Liapades, Paleokastritsa, Palaoikastrites beach, Corfu town. Romantic experience: Relaxing together on Paloikastrites beach with no one else there the whole time."

5. Rye, United States "Rye is a super cute village, super easy to walk around, and super fun to explore."

Lastminute.com reviewer Mariana shares, "Rye is a super cute village, super easy to walk around, and super fun to explore. Mermaid Street is a must see. Great for a weekend escape, and a great walk by the beach in Camber Sands (accessible by bus or walking for about an hour through never ending fields full of baby sheep! ) De-stressing tips: Walking and hiking, chilling in local cafes, walking on the beach and enjoying the quietness of the village on Sunday morning. Sightseeing places: Rye & Camber Sands. Romantic experience: Even though it was super windy, it was a really nice experience to go up the tower at St Mary's church, the view is amazing, and super romantic :). I liked: Walking back from Camber Sands to Rye onr the pedestrian/cycle road (about 1h walk), through never ending fields full of amazingly cute sheep."
