Across Italy, you will find some of the most beautiful countrysides anywhere in the world.
If you fancy spending your money taking in the rolling mountains and lovely landscapes, you may want to consider visiting Tuscany. This is one of the most scenic destinations in the world where you can enjoy tranquil surroundings, beautiful rolling fields and tasty local food and wine.
You can find a range of gorgeous villas in Tuscany, countryside escapes and romantic rural retreats available to book all year round, perfect for a relaxing romatic break.
3. Explore a Stunning Coast
When it comes to stunning coastlines, there really is nowhere better in Europe to visit than the stunning Amalfi Coast.
This is the ideal destination for honeymooners as you have lovely towns to visit such as Sorrento, Naples and Positiano (as seen in the picture above). Here you can also visit the amazing sights at Pompeii and Mount Vesuvius - most Italy group tours visit these places.
If you want to visit somewhere more off the beaten track, you can always check out a region of Italy such as Puglia which is relatively untouched and features quaint villages and beautiful beaches.
4. Visit an Island
Although, there are plenty of amazing islands scattered across Europe for you to spend your honeymoon, for example Madeira and the Balearic Islands (Mallorca, Minorca and Ibiza) nowhere compares to Sicily.
This is the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea and one of the best places you can visit in Italy.
In Sicily you can enjoy a fantastic combination of romantic settings, stunning coastlines and fascinating ancient history - check out the impressive Teatro Greco in the picture above.
If Sicily appeals there are so many world class hotels and gorgeous villas that will make your honeymoon a trip that is truly one to remember!
