Capri has always been a popular spot for tourists, writers, and artists since ancient Roman times. Completely understandable as Capri is such an enchanting and inspiring place. It is filled with medieval pathways, charming cafes, and secret grottos. There is so much to discover and do! There are romantic trips by funicular to Mount Salaro where you can walk to the Eremo di Santa Maria a Cetrella (a stunning church and architectural wonder). You can picnic atop Mount Salaro while taking in the amazing sight of the azure waters of the bays of Napoli and Salerno. Or maybe you will choose to visit the Grotto Azzurra (Blue Grotto) with its crystal-clear waters that make for a wonderful backdrop for a romantic stop. For those that prefer more adventure, there is a cliff formation out by the bay of Cala del Rio that has formed a natural Jacuzzi. It is a bit off the beaten path, but completely worth the trip. Of course, you cannot forget about trying the delicious food! One of the many delightful places to enjoy the local cuisine is the La Terrazza di Lucullo. It is one of Capri’s finest restaurants, boasting some of the best views of the island. Be sure to ask for a seat on the terrace! You can gaze out over the captivating view of the Bay of Naples while you enjoy an excellent meal. The town of Capri is also home to some beautiful boutiques and world-class shopping. There are lovely gardens for leisurely walks, sandy beaches for relaxing and sunbathing, and everything you need to make your honeymoon an experience you will never forget.

Costa Smeralda

Located on the second largest island in the Mediterranean, Costa Smeralda is a natural paradise with its sandy beaches and turquoise waters. This beautiful place is home to abundant wildlife, breathtaking landscapes, and incredible rock formations. The granite peak of Monte Mora is a nice secluded spot for a romantic picnic. Once atop the peak, enjoy a dazzling panorama of the island while the sun gently sets. There are the mysterious megalithic remains of Nuraghe Albuccio, and the mystic ruins of the Temple di Malchittu, places of interest that show the architectural knowledge of the ancient peoples that inhabited the island. Another interesting formation is the Capo d’Orso with its wind-eroded formations that are an astonishing sight. Liscia Ruia is an amazing beach where you lounge just beyond the strawberry trees while you relax and look out over the tranquil waters. Costa Smeralda is an idyllic world of cliffs, caves, beaches, and wild uninhabited stretches of land that beg for discovery.

Bellagio

Talk about beautiful Italian honeymoon destinations! Bellagio is considered Lake Como’s most romantic village. Few places are more beautiful and charming than Bellagio – which is why it is called the “Pearl of the Lake.” This picturesque village is made of cobblestone lanes, exquisite architecture, and world-class restaurants.  As you stroll along the cobbled streets, you will feel as if you have been transported back in time. Maybe you would like to hire a water taxi for an open air ride on the lake, or have a fabulous meal at the Hotel Tremezzo, or just explore the town taking in the sights. You can also ride the ferry to Mennaggio or Verenna. You may also opt for a trip to Tremezzo and visit the Villa Carlotta. Its magnificent English garden is truly something to behold. Bellagio is home to many villas with spectacular gardens. The gardens of the Villa Serbelloni offer some of the best panoramic views of Lake Como. The lakeside itself lends to a tranquil and relaxing atmosphere for romantic strolls. Bellagio is the perfect backdrop for romantic pictures with tree-filled hills, lovely villas, and views of the majestic Alps.

Portofino

Situated on a very rocky coastline, this tiny cliff-lined port epitomizes elegance, wealth, and class. Portofino has long been a playground for the wealthy and famous. This crescent-shaped village, located on the Italian Riviera, is made up of charming cafes, incredible restaurants, and architectural gems. If you want the best views of Portofino, then head over to the Castello Brown. The castle was once part of the harbor’s defense, but was converted to a museum in the 1960s. The lush terrace juts out over the village and overlooks the legendary piazzetta. After visiting the Castello Brown, take a short walk to the Church of San Giorgio, honoring the town’s patron saint. It houses relics of San Giorgio that are preserved in a shrine of the church’s altar. Another favorite spot is Il Faro – the Lighthouse – where you can sit at the café/bar and enjoy a drink and snack while looking out over the gulf. Portofino is home to some of the best scuba diving in the world. Maybe you will choose to do some scuba diving, where you will be able to explore underwater caverns and see marine life that is found nowhere else in the world. Portofino is a harmonious blending of humanity and nature and is one of the top spots for a romantic honeymoon destination.
