What to do on Valentine’s Day in Genoa
Article updated to February 2019!
Valentine’s Day is an extra moment for us to celebrate love, OUR LOVE. Valentine’s Day is an excuse to dedicate ourselves to US as a couple. Every moment is the right one to give more attention, an extra kiss, because love must be cultivated day after day. But sometimes between work, commissions and all commitments, in the evening I often realize that I didn’t do enough for US. So Valentine’s Day is an extra excuse to be in love and take time!
But like every year, the time has come when we panic and ask ourselves: what can we do for Valentine’s Day?
Well … But unfortunately we don’t have the possibility to take and leave What to do on Valentine’s Day in Genoa?
Dinner at the bottom of the sea at the Genoa Aquarium
For some years the Aquarium of Genoa has been offering very nice themed events, they are able to take advantage of numerous occasions to organize special offers. On Valentine’s Day a very special Emotional Dinner is organized, which gives the opportunity to celebrate in an exclusive location to say the least!
Appointment at 20 / 20.30 at the entrance of the Aquarium, usually closed at that time, but on Valentine’s Day the doors are open to a limited number of couples (the event is reserved for 80 people per evening) who are lucky to take a guided mini tour among the tanks of the Genoa Aquarium. The destination of the tour is the Cetacean Pavilion where the Dolphins will entertain guests during the aperitif and the whole duration of the dinner, it will seem like having dinner at the bottom of the sea! The tables are placed at a distance from each other in order to guarantee privacy for all couples. New this year: during dinner guests will be accompanied by some musical performances by Soprano Katerina accompanied by the sound of a violin.
The cost of this romantic experience is € 80 per person with mandatory booking. You can choose between the Menù di Terra and the Menù di Mare both very refined and prepared by Chef Salvatore Piazzolla.
Fall in love in Camogli
Camogli is the Symbolic Place of Lovers and Valentine’s Day so why not take advantage of it and go there to feel particularly pampered on Valentine’s Day?
As every year the Association of Traders and Tour Operators of Camogli and the Municipality of Camogli, with the patronage of the Liguria Region and the Chamber of Commerce of Genoa in collaboration with Pro Loco of Camogli organize the 32nd edition of “Innamorati a Camogli”.
In the program there are lots of events every year for this special occasion !!
Hearts and Knots of Love
This year, couples in love can deliver a message of love to the sea! All you have to do is go to the Info Point or to the Art Studio Maria Teresa Micco and each couple will be given a fiery red Heart on which to write their names, a dedication or their promise of love to be linked to the network positioned by the Camogli fishermen’s cooperative in the marina area. Couples will be able to return to Camogli in time and see if the knot resists and their love resists the harshness of the sea.
Every year for Valentine’s Day all the restaurants in the area prepare a menu dedicated to lovers, with a fixed price per couple. This year from 9 to 14 February, here is the list of participating restaurants:
- 120,00€ all inclusive for two people
- 110,00€ all inclusive for two people
- 100,00€ all inclusive for two people
- 90,00€ all inclusive for two people
- 80,00€ all inclusive for two people
For the after dinner we suggest you take a romantic walk on the Camogli promenade, end up watching the stars from the fishermen’s harbor before returning home or staying overnight for the night in this romantic town.
Romantic dinner at home
The last piece of advice we can give you for Valentine’s Day dinner is definitely to take some time for you! It is not necessary to go out to dinner in some dream location, even if Valentine’s Day is an excellent excuse to do so. A romantic dinner at home, by candlelight, prepared by you, your woman or even prepared together, to share the moment of preparation, is the most romantic thing you can do. Let us remember that Valentine’s Day is the party of lovers and must remain the party of Lovers!
Best wishes to all lovers!
