Italy, a European country with a long Mediterranean coastline, has left a powerful mark on Western culture and cuisine. Its capital, Rome, is home to the Vatican as well as landmark art and ancient ruins. Other major cities include Florence, with Renaissance masterpieces such as Michelangelo’s “David” and Brunelleschi’s Duomo; Venice, the city of canals; and Milan, Italy’s fashion capital.
It goes without saying that Venice is one of the most popular cities in the world for its beauty and natural romance. This city is famous for its gondola rides on the waterways that connect the city. While visiting Venice, you can get a ride to some of the best shopping areas in Europe; but as night falls, you can enjoy the lights of the city as you make your way through the waterways without a care in the world. After months of stressful wedding planning, there is little that is more relaxing than riding through Venice on a gondola ride with the one you love.
Artists will appreciate Tuscany as they realize it is the backdrop for some of the most famous art pieces in the world. Its natural beauty makes it a place to escape the calamity of the world and simply relax. This makes for a perfect honeymoon spot for newlyweds. While the way of life is simple, the detail of Tuscany is anything but. The roads are made from cobblestone and the architecture will leave you in awe. There are also many vineyards that are perfect for newlyweds to enjoy wine tours from some of the best wineries in Europe.
Much like your love, Rome wasn’t built in a day. And once you visit this beautiful city, you’ll see why. Rome is famous for the Roman Coliseum, the Pantheon, the Spanish Steps and so much more. For those who have been to Rome, they can tell you there is something special about the city that makes you fall in love with Italian culture almost as much as the person you are with. There are also plenty of street vendors that make for the opportune time to pick up a bouquet of flowers to show the person you love that this is just the beginning of a beautiful life together.
Lake Como is home to many Hollywood and European stars alike. This lake offers beautiful views of quaint villas and acres of small towns that sprawl along the beautiful water. As you cut out the rest of the world for your honeymoon with your new partner for life, there are few better ways to enjoy the peace and serenity of that Italy offers, than walking along Lake Como.
The Amalfi Coast is a tour that offers newlyweds an opportunity to see a variety of Italian villages at one time. Those visiting the Amalfi Coast will be amazed by how similar, how different, and how beautiful these villas all seem to be. And with a backdrop of mountains and vineyards, the Amalfi Coast is a great opportunity to hold the one you love as you go for a ride in the water.
Cilento makes the list of must do things in Italy on a honeymoon due to its historical significance. The coast is not as popular as the Amalfi Coast, but is just as beautiful and undeniably it offers a natural allure that is a must see for visitors to Italy. Because it is less popular than other tourist spots in Italy, you can expect it to be more rich in untouched Italian culture. This makes for a fantastic and enjoyable opportunity to experience Italian life.
Piedmont is located in the northwestern corner of Italy. This region offers views of mountain ranges that make up the Alps. Filled with ageless palaces and castles, Piedmont is much like Cilento in that it is one of the less frequented places for tourists. Honeymooners should be sure to visit Piedmont for a chance to get away from the hustle of places like Rome or Venice, but also experience the beauty and timelessness of Italy.
Naples is located in Southern Italy and is one of the busiest cities in the country. While you wont get as relaxing of a vacation in Naples as say Tuscany or Lake Como, you will get to experience Italian busy life outside of Rome or Venice. Naples offers countless restaurants, shops and nightlife opportunities to get the best of your honeymoon. And with its close proximity to the ocean, you can spend your days laying out in the sun or going for a swim.
No matter where you decide to go in Italy, it is an advantageous honeymoon destination. The country allows you to visit multiple popular and secluded areas all in one trip. Furthermore, with its beauty and history, you can spend time with the person you just tied the knot with, while beginning the history you will now make together.
