Are you getting married soon? There is so much to plan for the wedding, but don’t forget about the honeymoon. It follows soon after you have taken the vows. Consider Europe as a honeymoon destination. Hills, seaside, romantic cities, island getaways, great food and drinks… there are so many options to choose from. A honeymoon in Europe is a dream for many couples. Here are my top picks.
Just south of Naples, Positano was created by Neptune, the God of the sea, according to legend. Stunningly beautiful, Positano is always a great choice. You can explore the entire Amalfi Coast from here, or just sit back and relax, enjoy the seafood, drinks, and the stunning views. It’s a postcard destination.
Tuscany is one of the best places in Europe for olives, wine, sunshine, aromatic cooking, and romance. Its rolling hills, vineyards, and villas will steal your mind. This is Italian countryside at its best. Sip local wines, a glass of Chianti, while you relax. Small Tuscan towns like Lucca and Siena are worth visiting. You may want to spend a day exploring Florence as well.
This is bound to be paradise on earth. Hvar, an island in Croatia, is certainly one of the most beautiful places for a honeymoon in Europe. There are beaches to see, crystal clear blue water, hotels with pools, and lifestyle that is perfect for romance. Hvar is a favorite with many celebs like Beyonce and George Clooney.
The craggy cliffs, beautiful beaches, whitewashed buildings, and breathtaking scenery of the Aegean Sea lures honeymooners and tourists to the two islands and many islets of Santorini in Greece. Visit the black and red beaches, see the archaeological delights, and catch the stunning views. Don’t forget to try the absolutely divine seafood here. It will surely be an unforgettable trip.
Corfu is another great option in Greece. It is luxurious and beautiful. You will love the sun and the clear water here. You can go on a private wine tasting tour or visit the Mouse Island. And like Santorini, the seafood in Corfu is a delight as well.
Visit the village of Motovun in Istria, which is in northern Croatia. Istria is close to the country’s border with Austria, Italy, and Slovenia. The beaches are within easy reach. The beautiful city of Rovinj is just an hour away by road. Istria is a great choice if you love nature and want to spend a quiet honeymoon.
