Why Choose Italy For Your Honeymoon?

The provenance of the word honeymoon comes from the Old English “hony moone.” Hony, a reference to honey, refers to the “indefinite period of tenderness and pleasure experienced by a newlywed couple,” and how sweet the feeling of a new marriage feels. Moone, meanwhile, refers to the fleeting amount of time that sweetness would last.

Today, the word honeymoon conjures up images of a very special vacation, taken after your nuptials as a time to enjoy spending time with your new spouse, and being able to relax after what is usually a busy time in the run up to your wedding.

With travel now accessible to many destinations, themes and lengths of honeymoons can vary widely, and what is one couple’s idea of the ideal break may sound dull to another.

However, Italy – with its vast array of beach or city locations, and wide-ranging things to do – from gastronomic adventures to idling away the time by the beach offers newly-wedded couples the best of all worlds. From seeing romantic sites as depicted in Romeo and Juliet, to enjoying a personal shopping trip in the fashionable streets of Milan, Italy is a superb option for a honeymoon.

Why Choose Italy for Your Honeymoon?

Your honeymoon is a chance for you to make memories which will last a lifetime. As a destination, Italy offers such a vast array of fantastic things to see and do, whether you prefer to explore, eat or just relax – you are sure to find the perfect balance – even if as a couple you have different holiday styles.

The Most Romantic Locations in Italy

Italy as a whole is renowned for being one of the world’s most romantic places. Nevertheless, there are certain corners of the country that simply encapsulate romance like nowhere else. Whether you wish to tread in the footsteps of Shakespeare’s romantic heroes in Verona, soak up the emotion of the opera, or just enjoy watching a beautiful sunset – Italy has it all.


The mere mention of Venice is enough to conjure images of fairy-tale marble cities and journeys through history aboard a gondola. A brief three-hour excursion is how most visitors experience Venice, but to truly indulge in the incredible local lifestyle takes a little longer.

Behind the most crowded and congested corners of Venice lie some of Italy’s most prestigious and well preserved historic sites. It’s simply a case of ensuring you experience this romantic wonderland under the watch of those who know and appreciate the real Venice.

Artful, inspiring and no less than intoxicating, a luxurious Venetian excursion is an opportunity not to be missed.


Home to lyrical landscapes that have inspired artists for centuries, Tuscany encapsulates all that’s magnificent about the Italian countryside. Romantic holidays in Tuscany are all about two things – soaking up your surroundings and tucking into local ‘Cucina Contadina’ delights.

Tuscany has changed very little throughout the course of recent history, retaining a uniquely unspoilt and undiscovered ambiance. There’s perhaps no place better in the country to head to hide away in a romantic retreat in the midst of blissful seclusion.


Likewise, nowhere in Italy is proud or more fiercely protective of its gastronomic heritage. The local produce is simply out of this world and some argue (quite rightly) that Tuscany really is the original home of the slow-food, slow-lifestyle concept.


Perhaps best described in the rather dramatic yet well-meaning proverb “See Naples and Die”, this captivating corner of Italy is the stuff dreams are made of. A tour of Naples is just the thing to discover the historic side of Italy like no other.

From the cobbled streets of its ancient centre to the bustling port by the bay, Naples exudes a certain charm that’s impossible to put into words. Inspiring, uplifting and enchanting in the extreme, it’s the perfect place to head for an unforgettable honeymoon.

If not to simply sample the finest pizza at the oldest outlets in the world!
