Honeymoon in Paris
Is it banal to choose Paris for a honeymoon? No! This is a brilliant choice. Paris is big, charming, beautiful and can offer everything you need for a romantic trip. When is the best time to visit Paris? In my opinion, April-September. April and May are the time of flowering, the gardens of Paris are literally drowned in flower trees. Summer is always an ideal time to visit Europe and especially France. The program can be intense or relaxed. You can visit a million of museums and art galleries, visit the Opera, Moulin Rouge, enjoy French food in best Parisian restaurants, go for shopping. You can have slow morning in charming Parisian cafes, stroll through various beautiful gardens, drink cocktails on the rooftops with iconic views of Paris, book spa treatments at your hotel, try dinner at Paris Michelin restaurants, take a boat tour to see different Paris, enjoy this beautiful city and your honeymoon!
Honeymoon in Venice
People say Venice is a city of love, I agree. This is one of the most beautiful and romantic destinations in the world. A program in Venice can be very intense and relaxing at the same time. Book an apartment or a room in a hotel with a view, it will be ideal if it has a small balcony to enjoy cappuccino or espresso in the morning. Rent a private boat tour to explore Venice from the water, enjoy an Italian lunch in charming restaurants overlooking the canals, enjoy opera in Teatro la Fenice, walk around Venice at night. Enjoy dinner and a bottle of Italian wine in the outdoor restaurants of Venice, have a picnic with pizza and aperol in secret corners, visit art galleries. If you like a slow life, aesthetic views and want to feel special, Venice is the perfect place for your honeymoon. The best time to visit Venice for the honeymoon is from May to September. Enjoy this beautiful Italian city and your honeymoon!
Honeymoon in Tuscany
Italy is one of the best destinations for honeymoon in Europe. There are different pretty places in Italy, but I think Tuscany is the most beautiful and unique region in Italy. If you both love good food and red wine, to enjoy slow life, to feel privacy, to be in harmony with nature, Tuscany is the perfect place for your honeymoon. First of all, don’t rush, don’t try to visit all the best places in Tuscany, enjoy. Enjoy your stay there because it is one of the unique places in the world where time stops and seems like nothing else exists. Visit Florence for 3-4 days, visit art galleries, museums, dine in authentic Italian restaurants, drink cocktails in one of the bars on the rooftops of Florence. Then head to the countryside full of vineyards, book a beautiful hotel there with a swimming pool and stunning views and enjoy your honeymoon. The best time to visit Tuscany is from May to mid-October.
Honeymoon in Switzerland
People often call Switzerland a Paradise on Earth. And where, if not in paradise, would you like to spend your honeymoon?
A honeymoon in Switzerland can be luxurious and relaxing, or it can be adventurous and fun. You can start your day with yoga in the Alps, enjoy a delicious breakfast with a fantastic view, enjoy spa treatments, swim in a beautiful Alpine lake or hotel pool, take a boat trip, have lunch or have a picnic by the lake, relax on a sun lounger and have dinner at one of the Michelin restaurants in Switzerland. Or you can rent a car and travel around Switzerland, stay in different hotels, change places, go hiking and cycling, paddle on Swiss lakes, skydive, visit waterfalls and much more. Switzerland is a paradise for extreme sport lovers and adventure chaser. If you are a winter lover, where to go on a honeymoon in winter if not to Switzerland? You can ski all day and then have a relaxing spa treatment in one of the best hotels in Switzerland. Enjoy a wonderful winter dinner by the fireplace or even have dinner in an ice igloo. Switzerland has so much to offer its guests, I definitely recommend you consider this country for your honeymoon vacation. The best time to visit Switzerland is summer from May to August and winter from January to February.
Honeymoon in French Riviera
The French Riviera is one of the most beautiful destinations in Europe. It is a romantic, charming and sunny place. Delicious food, amazing French wine, beautiful sea, lavender fields, cafes with French pastries, cute towns. French Riviera is perfect for a luxury honeymoon, there are plenty of stunning hotels and villas for rent, however they also have lovely Airbnb for budget travelers. The best time for a honeymoon on the French Riviera, in my opinion, is from May to September. If you want that beaches and restaurants to be less crowded, I recommend you skip August, as this is the busiest time for all European summer destinations. Visit Cap Ferrat, Saint Tropez, Cannes, Èze, Menton and other beautiful towns, just rent a car and drive around the coast. Have a picnic with sea or lavender view, relax by the pool at your hotel or villa, enjoy wine at wineries, rent a boat and swim in beautiful places, have a romantic dinner in outdoor restaurant. Enjoy your French Riviera honeymoon!
Honeymoon in Greece
Greece is one of the most popular summer destinations in Europe. Crystal clear blue water, beautiful beaches, delicious Greek cuisine, authentic atmosphere, stunning hotels and history – all this makes Greece an amazing place for a honeymoon. I can’t tell you which island is best for you, as it depends on taste and expectations. Some people like Santorini, some Mykonos, and others travel to Rhodes. In my opinion, Santorini is crowded from May to September, and these are the best months to visit Santorini, so if it were my choice, I would not choose Santorini for my honeymoon, but there are people who love it. If you both want more privacy, choose another beautiful Greek island, Mykonos, Rhodes, Crete, Corfu, Zakynthos, Milos or other. While Mykonos is a favorite Greek island of bloggers and celebrities because of its parties and beaches, Corfu is a very authentic and peaceful island. Many of Greek islands are beautiful and worth visiting, check where you prefer hotels and lifestyle more. If you choose Greece for your honeymoon, I recommend you rent a private boat tour to explore the island and swim in the hiddend spots. Rent a car and drive around the island, visit sunset bars for drinks and dinner, enjoy the pool at your hotel or private villa, taste delicious local cuisine and wine. The best time to visit Greece is from mid-May to mid-October.
