Honeymoon on the Italian Riviera

If you’re considering a honeymoon to Italy, you’ve probably researched excursions that include one of the “Big Three” – Rome, Venice, and Florence. But if you’re in search of an Italy honeymoon that includes some beach time, consider the possibility of visiting the Ligurian region, which includes the beautiful Italian Riviera, an area that has long been a favorite of European’s elite and the perfect place for them to escape the everyday pressures of being rich and famous. Indeed, the palm tree-lined avenues, the sandy beaches, and the fine hotels found in towns like San Remo, Santa Margherita Ligure, Portofino, and others along the crescent-shaped coast beckon those looking for a luxurious place to relax and shed the rigors of everyday life.

1. Venice

Venice sits nestled on the northeast coast of Italy as a network of over 100 tiny islands. These islands are separated by narrow canals and connected by bridges. If you’re planning your honeymoon, Venice is an ideal spot for relaxation, adventure and romance. As a recognized World Heritage Site, Venice, its lagoon, unique topography, and wealth of historic buildings work together to create a sort of city-wide museum, where you can see wonders of man and nature alike.
