Love is at the top of many people's minds this weekend as they prepare to celebrate Valentine's Day tomorrow. While this holiday is not widely celebrated in Israel, the country boasts wonderful romantic getaways! Israel21c lists 10 places to visit with someone special: 

1. Wohl Rose Garden, Jerusalem

The rose has long been a symbol of love and romance. And Israel is one of the world’s largest producers of flowers, especially roses.

So, where better to head than the Wohl Rose Garden in Jerusalem for a romantic stroll?

A walk along the path, past 15,000 rose bushes representing more than 400 varieties, is one of the most romantic ways to celebrate your love.

2. Stargazing over Mitzpe Ramon

Desert surroundings, a starry sky and the world’s largest natural erosion crater make Mitzpe Ramon the perfect romantic getaway spot.

After watching the sun set behind the sand dunes, head over to astronomer Ira Machefsky – the Starman of Mitzpe Ramon – for a night astronomy tour you won’t soon forget.

Machefsky shows visitors how to find the constellations, identify bright stars, explore celestial marvels and experience the sky’s wonders. He also has a standing offer of a free star tour open to any couple who propose on one.

3. El Mona Gardens, Julis, Western Galilee

The gardens boast a waterfall, fruit trees, countless flowers, mosaic artwork, wooden and stone sculptures and perhaps most importantly, secluded corners for a romantic rendezvous.

A local family has tended to this delightful leafy setting for over three generations and welcomes visitors to stroll around the grounds. There’s a reason northern residents of every ethnicity – Jews, Christians, Druze and Muslims – have turned this garden into one of the top pilgrimage sites for pre-wedding photography.
