First, the big hitters: Greece, Italy and France. Think watching
the sun set over the edge of the caldera of Santorini, enjoying the
delights of Italian cuisine in the hilltop town of Positano or
wandering through the picturesque villages of Provence - these
destinations are popular for a reason.
But aside from theses timeless classics, there's also Portugal's
Douro Valley, perfect for a spot of wine tasting and the chance to
explore the pretty city of Porto. Or how about sticking to the
mainland of Greece instead and exploring the Peloponnese, home to
some of the most luxurious and romantic hotels in Greece, such as
the Kinsterna or the Amanzoe?
For the more adventurous honeymooners out there, or perhaps
those planning a winter wedding, why not swap sun for snow and head
to Swedish Lapland, where you can enjoy a moonlit snowmobile
adventure, with the chance of seeing the Northern Lights? Stay in
the iconic Ice Hotel or enjoy complete privacy and sleep up in the
trees in a cabin at the Treehotel. Sounds pretty idyllic to us.
To stretch your time together out as long as possible before
your return to the real world, why not design your trip to include
multiple countries, such as venturing across Europe on the Orient
Express? Begin in the city of love, Paris, and end up in Italy's
floating city of Venice, and then, if that's not enough, hop aboard
a boat to the Greek Islands to end your honeymoon in style. Not a
bad way to kick off married life.
