1. Dubrovnik, Croatia "The most romantic was probably the boat cruise to Elafiti Islands."

Lastminute.com reviewer Louis Nielen Emile shares, "Weather and food were absolutely brilliant, the beginning of June is a perfect time to go. We visited the Old Town a couple of times, kayaked around Lokrum Island, took a boat cruise to the Elafiti Islands and day trips to Kotor and Mostar. Without a doubt the best vacation of my life so far! Adventurous activities done: See previous response. Sightseeing places: Mosta in Bosnia, Kotor in Montenegro, Elafiti Islands, Dubrovnik Old Town, Uvala Lapad. All of them were special in their own way, but highlight probably has to be the view on the top of the fort in Kotor, as well as Kolocep beach in the Elafiti Islands. Romantic experience: The most romantic was probably the boat cruise to Elafiti Islands. We spent the day swimming in the ocean, having a great seafood lunch and drinking some fantastic wine! I liked: See previous responses."

4. Dublin-IE, Ireland "The Aran Islands are sublime and therefore very romantic."

Lastminute.com reviewer Christidb adds, "The weather was great, much sunnier that usual. The sights were okay, there was nothing too exciting to do. The food was ridiculously expensive. I think it's not worth visiting for more than a couple of days unless all you enjoy is paying for expensive food and shopping. De-stressing tips: Just hang out in nature a lot. Adventurous activities done: Cycling. Anywhere in the Countryside is a great place to cycle really, but the best are probably the Aran Islands and Killarney. Sightseeing places: There's not a lot of Sightseeing to do in Dublin. I did however cycle in Drogheda, Killarney and the Aran Islands, which was great. Wicklow is also amazing, and Cork is cute. Romantic experience: The Aran Islands are sublime and therefore very romantic. I liked: Cycling. And the people were very nice everywhere."

5. Palermo, Italy "We also went to Three islands by boat."

Lastminute.com reviewer adds, "The weather was great. 28 degrees Celsius, sunny. We walked from the train station up the main street near the famous theater. Lovely walking. We had food arranged for lunch, the typical Sicilian street food. We also enjoyed gelato as we walked down the street. Food experience: We tested new food every day. Everything from Caprese to Pizza and Pasta with seafood. The gelato in 10 different places and they all were great. Adventurous activities: We went to Cefalu up to the "Rock", A 30 min heavy trip straight up 280 meters. Great view from there. We also went to Three islands by boat. Salina, Panarea and Stromboli. We walked around the Islands. Romantic experience: Walking around in Cefalu, visiting different trattorias. Eating gambas which pasta and drinking a glass of good rose wine. Friend's experience: The boat trip to the tre Islands. It was great to visit Stromboli and the house that Ingrid Bergman and Roberto Rossellini lived in 1949. I liked: Everything."
