It’s no secret that Victoria has been voted Canada’s most romantic city multiple times, so it’s not a surprise that one of Bachelor in Paradise’s power couples was spotted here over the holidays.
According to their social media accounts, Joe Amabile and Serena Pitt spent a few fun-filled days in the city, stopping at some popular tourist hotspots along the way.
Joe and Serena had a successful courtship on Bachelor in Paradise’s most recent season, sealing the deal with an engagement at the end of it.
Though both are Bachelor veterans – with Joe appearing in season 14 of The Bachelorette, then again in season 5 of Bachelor in Paradise, and Serena starring in Bachelor season 25 – the pair appeared more in love than ever, celebrating their 6 month anniversary of being engaged in the capital city.
Serena’s Instagram stories showed the couple stopping for drinks at the Fairmont Empress, with the signature Empress Gin making an appearance in one of their cocktails.
They then moved onto popular eatery Il Terrazzo, where Serena filmed a quick video of their sumptuous spread with a cameo by Joe.
Joe also posted a photo of the two lovebirds at Butchart Gardens with a backdrop of twinkling lights, and later on a candid snap of downtown’s Don Mee.
Though Joe’s hometown is Chicago, Canadian Serena hails from Toronto, and it’s believed that she was in Victoria to visit family over the holidays.
Were you one of the lucky ones to spot the dynamic duo in their tour across the city?
