A honeymoon in Italy is mesmerising. One of the best countries to visit on earth to visit, the hardest part of planning your Italy honeymoon, will be to decide which parts to visit and which parts you can bear to skip!

Birthplace of the Roman empire, the origin of magnificent Renaissance and Baroque art and architecture, and titan of modern fashion, Italy is an unparalleled travel destination for culture vultures. Home of one of the world’s most renowned cuisines which vary from region to region – Italy is culinary honeymoon heaven.

Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast with beautiful cliffside towns like Positano, Ravello and Praiano are usually the first on the list for most couples and with irresistible coastline, islands like Capri, bucket list sites like Pompeii, the birthplace of pizza in Naples, it’s hard to beat this spectacular area of Italy with so much to see and do.

Rome is just a couple of hours by train away, where you can visit some of Italy’s most famous sites and walk this incredible city with history at every turn. Venture a little further north to find Florence, Pisa and the beautiful countryside of Tuscany with rolling hills and medieval towns like San Gimignano.

Sicily is a captivating island, perfect for your honeymoon with beaches, fascinating history, ancient sites and a unique cuisine all of its own. Explore Italy’s stunning lake regions, hop from Milan to Lake Como or visit the home of Romeo and Juliet in Verona on your way to Lake Garda. And of course, Venice, despite the over-tourism that the city is trying to control, is still one of the most romantic cities in the world.

Consider the Italian Riviera in the north, where one of Italy’s most picturesque towns, Portofino, awaits. In the south the lesser-known (for first-time visitors) but rewarding Puglia region, home to vineyards and olive groves and the beautiful city of Bari and a gorgeous coastline. Thinking of travelling in winter? The Italian Alps can be good value and less crowded than some of their neighbours.
