So it got me thinking….where would I take a billionaire if I was organising a date that was full of romance but on a realistic budget?
The walking date: I’d arrange to meet my billionaire in Monterosso, one of the five villages in the Italian Cinque Terre. We’d have a lovely, early breakfast in Monterosso and then walk along the coast through the four other villages of Vernazza, Corneglia, Manarola and finally Riomaggiore. Of course we’d enjoy lots of gelato along the way and finish the day watching the sunset while sipping limoncello
The cycling date: I’d meet my billionaire as he stepped out of his limo with a couple of bikes in the town of Versailles. We’d cycle through the famous Versailles Palace gardens and then enjoy a picnic of fresh baguettes, cheese and wine at the end of the ornamental lake taking in the palace vista
The midnight date: After a casual dinner at one of the cute bars (that had a view of the famed Charles Bridge) on the shore of Vltava River, we’d walk through the old town square as Prague’s medieval astronomical clock struck midnight
The floating date: I’d buy a couple of tickets on the ferry that crosses the Monte Carlo harbour. We’d enjoy a sneaky champagne while enjoying the view of the super yachts and the opulence and glamour of Monte Carlo.
Wish I was crossing Monte Carlo harbour right now!
