In Love in Italy

Is what it’s all about

Situated in Southern Europe, Italy consists of a large boot-shaped peninsula that extends into the Mediterranean Sea, and two islands, Sicily and Sardinia. The independent countries of San Marino and the Vatican City (Holy See) are situated within Italian territory.

Why choose Italy as your honeymoon destination?
Ride gondolas in Venice, see fountains of Rome, tour vineyards, it’s perfect.

Italy is one of the most romantic destinations in the world with its quaint seaside villages set against a picturesque countryside. Imagine lingering over a late-morning breakfast at a pavement café, drinking cappuccinos and listening to the locals jabber away in Italian. After breakfast imagine strolling hand-in-hand through a historic cathedral before hopping onto a gondola for a romantic canal ride. Heaven!

When to go
To be, or not to be in doors.

Italy enjoys a climate free from extreme temperatures however the best times of year to visit are between April and June, and September and October when temperatures are pleasant and range from 15-22°C. If you are planning on swimming on your honeymoon, pick dates between June and September but remember the months of July and August can be uncomfortably hot and large parts of the country shut down for holidays. If you are keen to hit the slopes, the skiing season is between December and April.

What your Euro is worth

The Euro. 1 euro = 100 cents.

Communication is the key

Italian is the native language in Italy however you may hear various dialects. You should not have any trouble speaking in English but it is worth practicing some common Italian phrases before you arrive...

Keep it real

Italy is a relatively crime free country however tourists are sometimes targeted by sneaky pickpockets. Hang onto your personal belongings and be wary when approached by strangers especially in crowded tourist spots. Italians are known for being flirtatious so don’t pay any attention to wolf whistling. Just keep walking!

What to see and do
Depending on how busy you want to be

Florence, Rome, Venice, Tuscany†- Italy has so much to offer honeymooners from relaxing in the scenic countryside to walking the cobbled streets of the cities. Popular attractions include the Leaning Tower of Pisa, The Colosseum and Vatican City. A moonlit gondola ride in Venice might be costly but what could be more romantic? The best way to see Italy is to simply get lost for a few days discovering it at your own pace; meander the winding streets, share delicious meals in hidden cafés and explore mysterious ancient architecture.

Vaccinations or Medication necessary?
Hakunamatata- which means no worries

No vaccinations are necessary for travel to Italy but you may wish to get a flu shot if you are planning on traveling in winter – a red nose is not very romantic!
