Italy is a country full to the brim with passion and beauty, and one of the most romantic honeymoon destinations imaginable. Those looking for picturesque countryside escapes will love the rolling green hills of Tuscany dotted with quaint villages as well as some exceptionally beautiful cities such as Pisa, Florence and Siena. For a taste of the traditional Mediterranean, head south towards the laid back,
beachy region of Puglia for a villa break; stopping along the way stop for pizza in Naples and a history lesson in Pompeii. For a cultural break, the incomparable cities of Rome, Milan, Venice and Verona - each with their own distinctive personalities - are all firm favourites. Meanwhile, for mountain escapades, the north of Italy - home to the Dolomites - holds plenty of opportunity for activities, whether you want to hike, bike, ski or road trip together, or simply lock yourselves away in a cabin in the woods where the only company you'll have is from the local deer and the odd mountaineer that passes you by. Whether you want to explore one place in depth or combine all of the above for the trip of a lifetime, one thing is for certain - Italy honeymoons have something for everyone, and all topped off with plenty of delicious food and wine. The icing on the torta? The word 'romantic' even has Roman in it.

We had a lovely time - the hotel was gorgeous - very comfy and in the perfect spot and they were very helpful and nice. Our two guides were excellent - very knowledgeable and interesting. It was great - all round! We were lucky and had beautiful weather too (blue sky and sun - but freezing, which was great).
Thank you so much for everything - it was all perfect (transfer was great too).
What can you expect on Italy honeymoons that you won't find anywhere else?
We’re sure you don’t need to hear the pitch, but here’s a quick reminder...Italian food is tantalisingly close to perfection, and the landscape - from beautiful island beaches to cypress tree-topped hills and soaring mountains - has something for pretty much everyone.
Suffice to say this is a country that gives France a run for its money as the perfect short-haul honeymoon destination, and it's all there on our metaphorical doorstep so you don't have to kick off what should be a well-earned rest with a tiresome overnight flight anywhere. Whether you head to the hilltop towns along the Amalfi Coast, the rolling hills of Tuscany or the more undiscovered region of Puglia, your Italy honeymoon will be a winner.
