Borghese Gallery

See the greats at the Borghese Gallery in Rome

For the couples who are always seeking out the best in historical art, there’s no better place to spend Valentine’s Day than Rome’s Galleria Borghese. Housed in the striking former Villa Borghese Pinciana, this gallery is full of iconic works such as Bernini’s Neptune, Canova’s Venus Victrix, and Caravaggio’s Young Sick Bacchus. Walk through the highly decorated 17th-century rooms, then catch up on each others’ favourite works as you stroll through the picturesque park of Villa Borghese.


Listen to the Valentines classics in Amsterdam

This one’s for the film and music lovers. Every year, Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw (one of the best venues for acoustics in the world), hosts an evening that brings film scores to life. This year at Valentines Classics at the Movies, the Olten Philharmonic Orchestra will be filling your ears with sounds from Forrest Gump, West Side Story, Cinema Paradiso and more. It’s all held in a grand and imposing concert hall that’s been delighting Amsterdammers and visitors since the late 1800s. Grab dinner at the concert hall’s restaurant LIER beforehand, for French-inspired cuisine with a contemporary twist. Tickets can be found here.

Wind down with underground jazz in Zagreb

Cosy candle-lit atmosphere, private booths and live jazz sessions makes Bacchus Jazz Bar one of the best Valentine’s Day ideas in Zagreb. In this cellar bar that’s a favourite of locals, you’ll be treated to Dalmatian wines, low brick ceilings, a homely mix of mismatched furniture and laid back jazz to croon along to. Bacchus Jazz Bar is on the edge of Lower Town’s famous Lenuci’s Horseshoe (Trg Kralja Tomislava 16) – take your time to get there and enjoy a walk through the parks from art’otel Zagreb.

Delve into all forms of love in Berlin

Think the LGBTIQA+ community has never had a place in art? Well, The Second Glance: All Forms of Love is here to challenge everything we thought we knew – or were taught – about art throughout history. This fascinating exhibition at Berlin’s Bode Museum explores existing collections through a new lens, showing that there’s always been artistic and societal engagement with LGBTIQA+ sexualities and identities – they’ve just been overlooked. Celebrating all forms of love through art? What a way to spend Valentine’s Day in Berlin. Book a ticket here.

The rates will be compared net of any taxes, gratuities, or any other fees associated with the room rate; however, if the rate has taxes included, we will verify that the total cost of your Comparison Rate is lower so that prices are compared on a relative basis.

Claims will be denied when the difference between the Comparison Rate and the rate on is less than 1USD, 1EUR or 1GBP or equivalent in the local currency of the hotel.

Comparison Rates applicable to only a portion of the reservation will not be honored.

If your reservation meets these criteria, let us know by submitting the claim form.

Customer Care will verify the rate meets all of these Best Rates Guarantee terms and conditions and contact you via email.
