Explore the romantic traditions of Valentine’s Day

Hosted by Karine Hagen

In celebration of the most romantic day of the year, join us as we uncover the origins of Valentine’s Day traditions and explore some of the world’s most alluring destinations and experiences. Traveling to Greece, we learn of a modern-day love story that shook Greek society when it took an unexpected turn in the shadow of the Acropolis. In Italy, we visit the Perugina School of Chocolate to learn how to make Baci, Italy’s original chocolate “kiss,” invented on Valentine’s Day in 1922. Moving on to Austria, we get a glimpse at a different kind of school: Vienna’s famed Tanzschule Elmayer, where we are taught the steps of the iconic Viennese waltz.
