It’s Date Night – Italy

A few weeks back, I wrote a guest post for Janine, about making the most of your alumni association.  Here is the post on her Italian date night that she wrote for me, which is part of a series on her blog.

This is a fun year-long series that will be going on for the next year. It all started on September 11th, which was my boyfriend and my two-year anniversary. I wanted to give him something that was a) within my price range and b) something we could do together (not materialistic). When I stumbled “The Passport to Love” on the Dating Diva’s website, I knew it would be perfect. To check out the date night series so far click here.  (Anne’s Note: Putting together everything for a year of dates makes a fantastic wedding gift!)


The boyfriend and my fourth date was to a place that I long to visit…. Italy! First of all Italy has a very temperate climate for majority of the year and secondly they have AMAZING leather markets that I am dying to go and see.

 Date Night – What We Did:

  • Made our own pizza dough and then cooked our favorite types of pizza
  • Drank Italian Prosecco – Oh soooo good!
  • Walked to the local Italian Café for gelato
  • Watched Under The Tuscan Sun


Date Night Italy - pizza

So far I would have to say this has been one of my favorite date nights! It was simple, like most of the dates have been but we always have such an amazing time. Taking time out of our busy lives to make sure we have one date night a month is definitely something I want to continue even after this year of dates is over.


Next month is India!

  1. I love the idea of international date night. It would be not so fun with our five year old around but someday we'll bite the bullet and get a sitter!

    Hi Anne!

  3. I love the idea, simple, fun and cheap! I won by BF's stomach doing homemade pizza, that is a weekly thing at our house now. If you haven't done France already, crepes are a favorite of ours too, super easy and delicious.

  4. Great ideas. I'm no expert on romance but I can see a woman really liking those things.

    Although September 11th is your anniversary? Srsly? lol sorry I would personally just fudge it to Sept 10th or 12th.

  5. I love the idea of a themed date night! And Italian prosecco IS delish… *drool*
