1. VENICE honeymoon in Italy: top romantic destination
If the shape of the red gondola seat reminds you of a heart then you are on the right track. Venice is among the most researched romantic Italy honeymoon destinations on Google. Sip your morning coffee at Caffè Florian overlooking St Mark’s square. Admire the façades of Venetian palazzos while your gondola elegantly glides on the Grand Canal and the singer performs a moonlight serenade. Pamper your palate on a cicchetti tour tasting local snacks accompanied by local wine. History buffs will be more than satisfied touring Doge’s Palace or looking for Palladian traces in local architecture. Hidden corners for cosy, romantic walks, the colorful houses of Burano and let’s not forget – the Carnival! It definitely puts Venice among the best cities in Italy for a honeymoon. And there is more! Venture to the countryside and visit the Prosecco land or say hello to Romeo and Juliette’s Verona. Stop at the famous balcony and remember to rub Juliette’s bronze statue to keep your luck in love!
2. AMALFI COAST: the best place to stay in Italy for honeymoon
Can it get any more romantic if a great love story brings fruit in the form of an enchanting botanical garden? A landscape masterpiece, La Mortella Gardens are a must-see location on your Ischia honeymoon in Italy. Lady Susan Walton, together with a famous designer, created this wonderful botanical park as an expression of love for her husband. The charming Island of Ischia is also home to the majestic Aragonese castle and is often referred to as the “green Island”, perfect for nature lovers. Positano is another destination on the Amalfi coast that doesn’t need any introduction. The entire coast is packed with plenty of activities to create lifetime memories. Foodies enjoying their Positano honeymoon can select between lemon tours with limoncello tastings, cooking classes (what better way to cement your love than over food!) or a day at a local farm where you will learn the secrets of mozzarella making. A beautiful hike awaits you on the Path of Gods and don’t forget to stop at Queen Joan’s Baths to take a plunge!
3. THE ART CITIES: Best honeymoon locations in Italy
Surprisingly Art Cities are very popular with honeymooners and it makes perfect sense why. Every corner, every stone will tell us stories of generations past. We have already mentioned Venice but Florence and Rome can be proudly listed among top Italian romantic destinations. An iconic movie location (think Fellini’s “La Dolce vita” and its most famous scene) loved by many cinematographers, Trevi fountain enchants travelers from all over the world, day and night. While enjoying your Rome stay, toss a coin in the Trevi Fountain for luck. Take a vespa sidecar tour to discover Rome from a fun and unique perspective! From Rome it’s just a little over an hour via a fast-train and you are in the cradle of Renaissance. Make your Florence honeymoon special and take a romantic stroll in Boboli Gardens or enjoy a beautiful sunset with a panoramic view from Piazzale Michelangelo. Pick your glass of Chianti from the “wine window” and stop in the Oltrarno artisan district for authentic shopping. If you feel like it, climbing the 414 steps of Giotto’s Bell Tower will provide some fun exercise before you visit the majestic Santa Maria del Fiore Cathedral.
4. DOLOMITES: a winter wonderland honeymoon in Italy
Winter enthusiasts don’t need to worry! Italy honeymoon destinations offer a variety of activities for all seasons. Nature lovers and cross-country skiing fans can select between the elegant Olympic town of Cortina d’Ampezzo, snowshoeing hikes with stunning views of Tre Cime di Lavaredo and winter tobogganing in Val Gardena. Spice up your romance with a day at a SPA with a candle light dinner in Sudtirol. Take a stroll at seasonal Christmas markets in Val Pusteria while sipping mulled wine and tasting local canederli dumplings. If winter is not your thing, a summer honeymoon in the Dolomites can be equally memorable. Just think about panoramic pics at Lake Misurina or a romantic dinner in a mountain lodge – these are just a fewthings to do in Italy for a honeymoon.
