While many people celebrate their anniversaries over dinner, with flowers, and occasionally with a small trip, we think there is another great way to do it; a dream trip! What better way to celebrate a milestone than by taking the vacation of a lifetime? Whether it's a city you've always dreamed of exploring or a country you visited together long ago, an anniversary is a perfect reason to head out on an adventure. 

Booking a guided vacation means that you don’t have to worry about anything else once you pack your bags. You’re left free to explore the world with your partner, your best friend, and the one you love. Here’s a look at our top vacations that are simply perfect for celebrating an anniversary.

How Do You Want to Celebrate?

You Want: Iconic Romance

Book a Trip to France

When you get right down to it France is the gold standard when it comes to romance. In Paris, the city of lights, it’s incredibly difficult to ignore the romance surrounding you. From the classic Eiffel Tower and charming bridges to the art influence found throughout the city, the French just know how to do romance.


A trip here for your anniversary could include dinner for two by candlelight, brunch served on a patio with a fresh latte, and afternoons spent strolling through well-manicured parks, sophisticated shops, and art museums. As an added bonus, we know of precious few ladies who are unimpressed at the prospect of a trip to France, so there is little chance of disappointing your partner with this destination. We suggest our  “Best of France” vacation to get a taste of everything the country has to offer. You’ll swoon in Paris, enjoy the finest wines in the Bordeaux region, and feel positively luxe in the French Riviera. This 14-day adventure has it all but leaves plenty of space for quiet, romantic encounters as well.

You Want: Captivating Experiences

Book a Trip to Italy

Italy has so, so much to offer. From ancient Rome and the Colosseum to the canals of Venice and the rolling hills of Tuscany. How one country manages to offer so many different experiences is a wonder in itself. An anniversary trip to Italy means that you’ll be creating memories in an infinite number of ways.


You can wine and dine on world-famous dishes and wines in Florence, take in history and culture in Rome, shop like you mean it in fashion-forward Milan, and feel the island breeze kiss your face on the Isle of Capri. There really isn’t a bad time of year to visit Italy, making it an evergreen destination no matter what month your anniversary falls in. To get a taste of everything Italian, we suggest our 14-day “Best of Italy” vacation. You’ll spend time in all of Italy’s top destinations while riding in style through the countryside and along the coast. Of course, you’ll have a stop in Venice, and plenty of time to let a gondolier serenade you as you celebrate your love.

You Want: A Luxury Experience

Book a River Cruise 

What child hasn’t daydreamed about adventures in a castle? Not a single one we’ve ever met. Make your sweetheart’s childhood reverie come to life when you sail along the Rhine River and experience a myriad of iconic castles perched on the banks and cliffs above. 

S.S. Antoinette on the Rhine River

We think there’s no better way to experience this than from a river cruise ship, specifically Uniworld's 9-day Castles Along the Rhine cruise. You’ll sail along the Rhine, splitting France and Germany, and experience castles dating to the 1300s on each side. Along the way, you’ll see famed Marksburg Castle, and visit other sites rich in medieval history. The landscape is so stunning, it’s no wonder it inspired artists and composers like Beethoven! You’ll feel inspired and completely enveloped in romance too as you sip on local wines and enjoy a leisurely pace once traveled by the nobility. This route makes it easy to feel royal, and to treat your spouse to a fairy tale experience unlike any other!
