Honeymoon tours in Italy are filled with activities that give newlyweds a fun, adventurous start to this new phase of their lives together. For the foodie lovers, there are cooking classes, wine tastings, and more. For the adrenaline junkies, there is scuba diving, horseback riding, sailing, and more. The list is almost endless. Art lovers will be overjoyed by the sheer abundance of museums, architecture, and sculptures that can be explored. The wonder and beauty of Italy is that no matter where you go or what you do, it will be one of the best times of your life.
Honeymoon tours for the foodie lover often begin in Tuscany. Why? Because here is where people come to learn how to cook real Italian food. This is a beautiful region known for its rolling hills dotted with rustic farmhouses, quaint villages, and vineyards. This is the region of great food, excellent wine, and gregarious people. Wine tastings in Chianti – with its eponymous wine – is a must when in Tuscany. There are tours where the art of making pasta and olive oil are taught. Cooking classes teach couples how to use seasonal produce and ingredients to bring out the best in traditional Tuscan dishes.
Those who thrive on adrenaline should never fear boredom in Italy! Depending on the time of year – there is skiing available in the Italian Alps in the winter, and sunny beaches overlooking cerulean waters in the summer. The Amalfi Coast is a beautiful place for swimming, snorkeling, and scuba diving. The spectacularly clear waters hide quiet coves, enchanting grottoes, and abundant marine life. Exploring the coast is an adventure! Honeymoon tours here may include scuba diving lessons, but also many chances to slip away for a romantic picnic on the beach. If the couple is lucky, they may get a chance to swim with the dolphins while snorkeling!
Most couples looking for honeymoon tours in Italy think about the incredible wealth of art and culture. It would take several lifetimes to visit all the museums and architectural gems in the country. Pick a spot – Venice, Rome, Florence, Milan, anywhere – and there are countless churches, cathedrals, museums, palaces, and villas to visit and enjoy. Venice is a popular spot for newlyweds because of the abundance of things to do. Just walking around the city is a feast for the senses. Walk along the Rialto Bridge, visit St. Mark’s Basilica, and don’t miss the Doge’s Palace. Sit in St. Mark’s Square and soak in the vivacity of such an energetic place while sipping on a coffee or enjoying a little gelato. Of course, one cannot go to Venice without taking a ride along the Grand Canal. People can go for the traditional gondola, by waterbus, or water taxi. Booking a tour on a water taxi is a luxurious event. Guides will bring history to life as they talk about the different buildings. The intrigue…the drama…the scandals! Evening and night cruises are ultra-romantic, especially if you are doing a dinner cruise and show!
