No wonder Italy is considered one of the most top destinations for the Honeymoon - there are so many romantic corners that it is almost impossible to make a mistake. I know people who spent their honeymoon in Rome and were absolutely happy with the choice made. However, even if this is subjective, and when we take off our hat to the “Eternal City”, we will miss out on our listing of the best places for a honeymoon in Rome. Then a reasonable question arises, where to go on a honeymoon to Italy? We will offer 7 directions, and the right to make a choice will remain with you.
The amazing landscape of the very classical and picturesque Italy, which the painters and - already in modern times - cinematographers so loved to depict. In some towns, especially in high season, it seems that there are more tourists than Italians themselves. But, definitely, there is a reason why many visitors come back here again and again.
You will surely recognize these landscapes with green hills, with cypresses sticking out like spiers on both sides of the road, leading to another old-fashioned manor. Such places exist and, fortunately, come across with enviable frequency throughout Tuscany. Tuscan cuisine is amazing, the wine is legendary, and there is nothing more romantic than seeing a sweetheart (or sweetheart) sunset in an old, cobbled-up stone square square with a glass of delicious Italian ice cream.
Tuscany landscapes fascinate with its unusual beauty
If peace and love are the two main requirements for a honeymoon, then Tuscany, or rather one of the mountain towns, will fit perfectly into this format. Florence is located very close by, and this is the city from which you can almost certainly not leave indifferent, unless, of course, you have an easy, but internal urge to art. Otherwise, towns such as San Gimignano, Lucca, Montalcino or Pienza will be the perfect choice. Check only that your final travel point has a train station if you do not plan to rent a car. Otherwise Honeymoon in Tuscany threatens to turn into an obstacle course.
Already the pictures of the Amalfi coast alone are enough to arouse the desire of any traveler to send their feet there, especially if you are planning a honeymoon. Who does not like thoughts of sun-drenched beaches and pastel-colored buildings located on picturesque slopes running to the sea? If to this - already very tempting mix - add the fact that Amalfi Coast - This part of Italy, which has turned into a playground for the rich and famous, the temptation becomes simply irresistible.
The Amalfi coast is made up of several towns (including the one that gave the name of the area), as well as a number of settlements, geographically located, although close, but outside. There are several islands looming in the sea, opposite the coast, the prospect of visiting which is capable of making separate cuts on the already wounded temptation.
- Amalfi Coast can fit perfectly into your honeymoon program
The town of Positano - one of the most famous in these places, is a favorite destination of the "bourgeois" who want to spend a romantic vacation. Other towns, which are also quite competitively possible for Amalfi, are considered as the main base for the honeymoon - Ravello and Sorrento. And if you are more attracted by the spirit of adventure, then pay attention to the islands of Capri, Ischia and Procida.
A somewhat unexpected direction for the honeymoon, which required certain doubts before being finally included in our listing. To give you reason to reflect on our doubts, we only note that this is a direction for those who want to touch the “real” - more intense or something - Italy and, more importantly, for those who want to avoid crowds.
In Sicily, there are ancient ruins and world-famous resorts
However, the last point, which finally resolved all the torment, was set by the blog of one Italian guide, who herself held honeymoon in sicily. Moreover, the expert shared an interesting idea that this is the place where many guides go on their own holidays. Well - this thought has a very good reason. Sicily is the largest island of the Mediterranean Sea, famous for its warm climate and rich history. In our symbolic ranking of the beaches of Italy, Sicily was at an enviable height. The island has many Greek and Roman ruins, a real volcano, as well as several world-class resorts such as Taormina and Cefalu.
