Best honeymoon activities and experiences in Italy

Here are some of the very best things to do on your honeymoon in Italy, ranging from tours of the country's incredible landmarks to the most scenic spots for romantic photos. Whether you spend your time visiting vineyards or gallery hopping, Italy promises to delight your senses.

Admire Rome's cultural treasures

Rome is bursting with ancient wonders, including the iconic Colosseum and the grand Pantheon, a temple-turned-church. Be sure to stop and toss a coin into the Trevi Fountain, and make a wish as you start your adventure together.

Glide along the canals of Venice

The Lagoon City is undoubtedly one of the best honeymoon spots in Italy. Shop for artisan masks and admire the grandeur of St. Mark's Square, then embark on a gondola ride along the gorgeous Venetian canals. It's also worth visiting the island of Murano, famed for its fine glassware.

Escape to the Amalfi Coast

Among the many gems of the Amalfi Coast is Positano, a quaint town surrounded by lush hills. Stay in a private hillside villa, a short walk from a golden-sand beach, for a truly romantic setting for your honeymoon getaway.

Tour art galleries in Florence

For a culture-filled honeymoon trip, head to Florence, where you'll find Michelangelo's David, housed in the magnificent Galleria dell'Accademia. The Pitti Palace is a former royal residence and is well worth a visit for its opulent interiors and splendid Boboli Gardens.

Take a wine tour in Montalcino

Tucked away peacefully in the Tuscany region, Montalcino is a walled hilltop village and is a gorgeous spot for a tranquil honeymoon. What's more, it's close to some of the region's best vineyards, so you can enjoy a wine tasting tour and discover the area's best-loved export.

Tips for planning a honeymoon in Italy

In the bigger cities, hotels and villas get booked up fast, so planning in advance is ideal, especially in the spring and summer months. Southern Italy, in particular, enjoys great weather year-round, though spring to fall is ideal for the beaches and pools. The perfect honeymoon in Italy lasts a week or two, and you can easily explore multiple locations using the country's excellent train network.

When to go in Italy?


Spring and autumn are the best times of year to visit Italy. In summer, the central and southern parts of the country experience a few weeks of very hot weather; and it can get very cold in Northern Italy in winter, especially in the Alpine region. Take the area you intend to visit and explore into consideration when choosing the time of year for your trip. And avoid the month of August at all costs: the cities are absolutely teeming with people at that time of year.
