Romantic Italian Honeymoon

If it’s romance you want, nothing beats an Italian honeymoon destination. With so much to see and do, however, you may find yourself a little overwhelmed by choices. Between the history, the food and the scenery, Italy is the place to visit, but stay on your honeymoon in Italy for at least a week so you don’t have to rush.

Italy romantic honeymoon ideas

If art and culture delight you and your partner’s soul, then you may want to take in the sights of Rome, Venice and Florence. Starting in Rome, where Julius Caesar once walked the streets, you can see the Bridge of Sighs, Juliet’s Balcony and the Spanish Steps . Don’t forget to check out the Coliseum and the beautiful Vatican churches where Michael Angelo’s breathtaking frescos adorn the ceilings. If you hope to come back here as a couple, toss a coin in the Trevi fountain and whisper your wish together.

Venice Italy honeymoon

Once you’ve had your fill of Rome’s splendor, then head off to Venice. Ride the gondolas through the historic canals, and take a look at the beautiful palazzos and the Piazza San Marco. Venice is a water-lover’s paradise where the historic buildings reflect off the waters while Gondoliers sing.

Milan Italy honeymoon

After the glories of Venice, why not head to Milan, where fashion and shopping meet history and culture. Or, perhaps travel to Florence, the ancient home of the Medici family. In Florence you can visit the workshops of Leonardo da Vinci, Dante’s home or just wander the winding streets and marvel at the sites together.

Culinary tour on your Italian honeymoon

If you and your sweetie are into the culinary arts, why not consider a culinary tour honeymoon in Italy. The Italians are passionate about good food and wine and are thrilled to show others how to enjoy their cuisine.

Many towns offer cooking lessons for those interested, as well as tours of the local vineyards and olive groves. There are tasting tours for balsamic vinegar in Modena, tours of wineries in Tuscany, the Piedmont and Umbria, along with meat and cheese tastings. This is one vacation where your diet is thrown out the window, but it is so worth it!

Spas & Thermal Springs on your Italian honeymoon

If you are seeking out just plain relaxation on your honeymoon in Italy, you can try Italy’s famous spas and thermal springs. Located Tuscany, the outdoor thermal springs bubble up from underground sources, their waters filled with carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulfate which relax the body and increase blood circulation. Let’s face it, weddings can be stressful. It’s time to recoup on your Italian honeymoon.

Amalfi Italy honeymoon

Another destination for an Italian honeymoon is Italy’s Amalfi coast. Situated against steep cliffs, this picturesque coastline has some of the most breath taking views available. Small towns that hug the cliffs afford stops up and down the coast giving you a chance to rest and enjoy the sights of your honeymoon in Italy. Don’t leave your camera behind!

Capri Italy honeymoon

Should beaches be part of your plans, try the island of Capri. The mystery and glamour of the island alone is worth the price of admission. From the beautiful ocean views and rocky beaches to the Grotto Azzurra, Capri is destination of choice for everyone seeking the ultimate hideaway. You may not want to leave your Italian honeymoon.

Shopping on your Italian honeymoon

Let’s admit it, shopping in Italy is a dream come true. From the fashions to the foods, you can really score some incredible bargains. If you happen to have a Italian honeymoon during January through February or July through August, which is when designers switch their “seasons”, you can get an entirely new wardrobe for next to nothing. If you shop the outlet malls that are springing up all over Italy, it becomes even easier to get in on the bargains.

Jewelry is becoming the thing to purchase in Italy. Handcrafted gold jewelry from Milan, created by design houses such as Galante Visconti, Anaconda, Maria Garza Baldan, Anna Vincenzini and Cornelia are scattered all over the city and provide differing views on the art of jewelry and how it is made and how it should look. They have elevated the shopping experience to a fine art and share that art with the general public in their showrooms.

Don’t forget leather goods either. Particularly in Rome you’ll discover street venders with incredible coats, bags, and gloves. If they don’t have the right size, they’ll hop on a bike and find it for you!

The Food on your Italian honeymoon

Italians take their food seriously. Very seriously. It’s cooked with the kind of love that reserved for family. And in Italy, everyone is family! Every meal begins with antipasti, little bites of pickled vegetables, meats and cheeses to whet the appetite for the first course, which is the pasta, usually in a light tomato sauce. Following the pasta comes the meat dish with a side of vegetables, usually steamed. Tiramisu is a must on an Italian honeymoon. The delicate confection of lady fingers soaked in espresso, layered with whipped marscapone cheese and dusted with cocoa powder, with espresso, it is the perfect ending to a meal. Feed spoonfuls to each other, and smile. You’re on your honeymoon in Italy!
