When you think of romantic honeymoon destinations, it’s a good bet that Italy springs to mind. There are few places that can match the offerings for newlyweds taking their honeymoon in Italy, from romantic gondola rides and strolls through towns that date back to the middle ages, to the best gelato and cappuccino in the world, it’s hard to go wrong choosing Italy for your honeymoon. Here are some of the top destinations for an outstanding Italian honeymoon.
1. Honeymoon in Rome
Rome offers so many different things to see and do that it would take the rest of the day to list them. However, one of the most notable things Rome offers is food. From artichokes and zucchini blossoms to carbonara and pizza, Rome has a variety of tastes for every palate. You can grab one of Sale Miele’s enormous pizza slices on your way to see St. Peter’s Basilica and the Sistine Chapel. As night falls, join in an evening stroll, called passeggiata, and window-shop in the general area of the Spanish Steps with the locals. Afterward, be sure to stop off at La Pergola for a meal from a three-Michelin star restaurant.
Rome also has excellent accommodations on offer, and you and your spouse can rent Vespa scooters to zoom around and explore at your own pace. Watch the traffic, though; Rome can be host to brutal traffic jams.

Florence is neighbor to both Tuscany and Chianti; wines from both are easily accessible in Florence. If you’re taking your honeymoon in Italy around Florence, make sure you stop by the Boboli Gardens and the Duomo, a huge cathedral in the Gothic style.

Venice has to be one of the most romantic locations in all of Italy. It is the perfect destination for couples thinking about taking their honeymoon in Italy.
