9. Dodge the big cities.

Why it's perfect: A small town is like a treasure chest — without the maps and guides of a big city, you're left to find that perfect cafe or amazing local boutique on your own. And the pace is slow and relaxing, so you and your beloved can have the best time of your lives with a nice bottle of wine and, let's say, a gorgeous Tuscan sunset!

10. And in a pinch, try a staycation!

Why it's perfect: Any chance to revel in your relationship should be embraced! Craft the perfect week full of your favorite things — favorite movies, favorite dinners, favorite songs — and celebrate the things you love, together.
