Make this a date idea a themed night by renting movies to enjoy with dinner. You can pick out some travel-themed rom-coms like The Holiday, Under the Tuscan Sun, Eat Pray Love, French Kiss, or Roman Holiday. Or watch food-themed movies like Ratatouille, Chocolat, Chef, The Hundred Foot Journey, or Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
