Fancy a break to Paris, darling? Or perhaps we can sail down a Venetian canal in a gondola made for two? Thanks to budget flights and well-publicised hotel deals, any fool can whisk their partner off to one of the world's great romantic capitals on Valentine's Day. But a break in a more unsung destination will not only mean that you seriously impress with your initiative, but it will also mean less-crowded streets, lower prices and restaurants where you can actually get a table.
