After an unforgettable wedding, you deserve a honeymoon that is just as special to settle into married life and spend some much-needed time together.
Italy has a huge variety of wonderful places to go and things to see, making it a top honeymoon destination for all, and our top ten Italian honeymoon ideas are the proof.
1. A seaside love story in Salento The undiscovered Mediterranean paradise that is Salento is perfect for a romantic honeymoon by the sea.
With its long sandy beaches and crystalline waters, its many ancient olive groves and beautiful countryside peppered with fascinating villages and chic hotels it is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy being pampered.
We suggest… spa treatments for two at one of the relaxing thalassotherapy centres in the region.
2. A scenic tour of the Amalfi Coast
One of the world’s most beautiful coastlines, the Amalfi coast is made up of a chain of typical Italian villages nestled among the lemon groves, winding roads and sheer cliffs that tumble-down into the sea, interspersed with sandy beaches and mysterious grottoes. With its excellent weather, delicious food and central position in Southern Italy, the Amalfi coast is a fantastic base to see some of the most beautiful sites.
We suggest… renting a typically Italian Vespa and exploring the winding roads and quaint villages dolce vita style.
3. A taste of sunshine in Sorrento
The Sorrento Coast is known for its warm, sunny climate, its friendly people, its fragrant lemon groves and its views over the Bay of Naples and Mount Vesuvius. Relax on the beaches and soak up the sun that makes the citrus fruit of this area so famous, and taste the fresh fish cuisine and the intense sharp flavour of limoncello, the famous liqueur made from the abundant lemons on the coast.
We suggest… touring the coast by boat for a chance to view the islands of Ischia, Capri and Procida.
4. A paradise of food and wine
No other country in the world is as suited to gourmets as Italy. Pasta, pizza, at least 500 different varieties of cheese, risotto, polenta, cured meats, fresh Mediterranean vegetables, juicy citrus fruits, olive oil and fresh fish are just some of the delicacies on offer. Add to this the plethora of vineyards, cellars and wine tasting courses available and you have a truly delicious honeymoon ready to be sampled! Just make sure and leave room for a romantic dinner for two in one of Italy’s fine restaurants…
We suggest… a gastro tour (or two!) at your chosen honeymoon destination
5. The natural beauty of Cilento
Cilento is less well-known than the other coasts, but is just as beautiful. A UNSECO world heritage site, it combines incredible unspoilt natural beauty with important archeological sites as well as friendly people, authentic Italian culture more or less untouched by tourism and a warm, Mediterranean climate for long romantic rambles and champagne picnics for two on the beach.
We suggest… trying the mozzarella made in this area, undoubtedly the best in the world.
