That's Amore! An Italian valentine

Let's face it - Italy would be the perfect place to spend Valentine's Day. A country that inspires romance with its natural beauty, enchanting villages and fine food, wine and chocolate. But you don't have to be in Italy to be inspired by its romanticism. Here are some ways that you can celebrate Valentine's Day where ever you are "Italian style".

  • Create an Italian themed dinner accompanied by a bottle of fine Italian wine and Dean Martin singing "That's Amore".
  • Dine at a local traditional Italian restaurant. Learn a couple of romantic phrases in Italian. Celebrate with Baci Perugina - small, chocolate-covered hazelnuts that includes a romantic poetic quote in its wrapper.
  • Watch a romantic Italian film. In Italian of course.
  • Or like the Italians, profess your love with a padlock.
