Florence and the Tuscan Hills
Tuscany makes a wonderful honeymoon destination for those visiting Italy for the first time. This region in Italy has a little something for everyone. Visit Florence for a beautiful stroll through the open-air museum that is the city centre, Siena, Montepulciano and Chianti for the local wine, Pienza for the delicious Pecorino cheese and other local delicacies. For those looking for some downtime to relax, make sure to stop by Saturnia or Bagni San Filippo for a dip in the warm waters of the natural thermal baths during your time in Tuscany.

Lake Como is another gorgeous destination perfect for a short romantic getaway. Easily accessible from Milan, the lake is known to offer a dramatic backdrop of the alps. While visiting the area, you should definitely stop by the towns of Bellagio and Varenna for the perfect Italian experience. You could also consider renting out a private boat and exploring the huge lake by yourself, with plenty of swimming stops along the way.
I recommend getting in touch with an agency specialising in honeymoon planning for the best deals and experiences at Como.
One of the most beautiful coast in Italy is the Amalfi Coast. Located just south of Naples, it offers stunning views, beautiful beaches and a bustling atmosphere, perfect for any honeymoon. The best way to explore the coast is by renting out a vespa or booking a ferry to explore the different towns. Make sure to stop by Positano, Sorrento, Amalfi and Ravello on your trip.
For those looking for a unique way to explore the area, you could also rent out a private yacht and visit the towns while enjoying life at sea.
The Dolomites are located on the northeastern side of the country and is one of the most perfect honeymoon destinations in Italy for mountain lovers. From hiking across beautiful alpine landscapes, to discovering beautiful lakes and climbing to the top of peaks, this is the destination for the adventurous couple.

Another stunning honeymoon destination in Italy for beach lovers is the string of colourful seaside villages on the Italian Riviera, popularly known as Cinque Terre. Located in the region of Liguria, these towns offer the perfect place to relax and take it slow.

The Riviera also offers some delicious seafood, local pastas against the backdrop of some stunning sea views.
