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 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.

You Want: Iconic Romance

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.

Locally-based destination experts will take you well beyond the “must-sees” of each region, offering fresh takes on classic sites, insider knowledge of delightful under-the-radar locales, and VIP access to places only a privileged few will ever experience—such as a private early-morning viewing of the acclaimed art collection of the Kunstkammer Vienna.

"Regal in its opulent 18th-century decor, a floating homage to the former Austrian empress....Besides indulgent dining and an elegant atmosphere, this is one of the prettiest ships out there." - Cruise Critic editors

You Want: An Indulgent Adventure

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 throughout the city, the French 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.
