No matter where you live in the world, everyone has heard of Venice. Famous for its outstanding beauty, it is the capital of romance in Italy, and a great place to honeymoon if you get the chance. With winding canals, narrow streets, amazing architecture and fairy tale gondolas to take you around the city, it will take no time at all to lose yourself in Venice. There’s also a distinct smell about Venice, and we’re not talking about the waterways. Everywhere you turn there’s a traditional restaurant, pizza house or ice cream shop, so you’re never too far away from a meal. Furthermore, the historical buildings in Venice are superb, with huge churches and cathedrals towering over the city.
Surrounded by beautiful villas, villages and countryside, Lake Como is another of Italy’s romantic honeymoon hotspots. It has long been a destination for the lovers, and it’s easy to see why, with such hospitable locals, and the lake overlooked by hills and mountains. Not too far from Switzerland, the view from the lake to the Alps is one of the most romantic backdrops you can imagine, so if you’re thinking of honeymooning here, make sure you snap up some amazing accommodation in Brunate.
