1. Love challenges for couples: have the Spaghetti-kiss scene
Number one needs to be our favourite one of the couple challenges straightaway! Don’t we all know how to share Spaghetti in a romantic way?

Go for it! Ignore the eyes from those around you…
2. Sweet couple challenge: Italian nickname

- Tesoro mio: my treasure
- Principino: Little Prince
- Dolcezza: sweetest girl
- Scimmietta: little monkey (her)
3. Adventurous couples, hike Cinque Terre holding hands
Cinque Terre is a real hotspot in Italy where many couples go to find some romance. That is also due to the scenery which makes it a great destination for wedding photoshoots as well. You can make this visit more active by doing, for example, the Cinque Terre hike in between several villages with the most wonderful views. Want to make it extra special? Hold each other’s hands while hiking and do not let go under any circumstances. That’s surely a really fun challenge!
4. A travel couples love song playlist for each other
Doing a road trip in Italy? A playlist with great music is without a doubt a must! Prepare a playlist for each other with love songs or songs you know your partner will like. To point out that this is also a real test to see how well you actually know each other. Want to have romance on full volume with some deeper connection? Add the ones with real, honest and relatable lyrics.

Juliet stands on a balcony and Romeo below in the garden. Romeo and Juliet declare their love and their bond for a lifetime. Thus, time to find that balcony for your romantic serenade!
7. Learn Italian love words from a local
Don’t we all like to learn some new language skills along the trip? The first thing to remember here is to be sure of what you are learning! In this situation learn some Italian words to express your love. For example for waking up, before going to sleep, to compliment or to tease a bit. Lastly, locals will be most likely happy to help you with this!
8. Take a typical leaning tower of Pisa photo
Oh we love these, another fun challenge for couples! The very touristic photos of holding the leaning tower of Pisa. Yes we have to be honest, we did some of those too and it was fun! Generally, it requires real coordination and communication between the two of you to get that shot perfect. Fun and good memories guaranteed!

10. Pick your partners Italian ice cream flavour
Italy is one of the countries where you MUST try the ice cream. They have so many flavours you never heard of before like Tiramisu. Time to do some tasting! Pick your partners ice cream flavour without telling what it will be. Let’s see if you know what your partner loves and if your partner can guess what it is! But also a great opportunity to try something new instead of sticking to those flavours we already love and always pick.
