2. Greece

 

Up next on our list is beautiful Greece and one that is definitely on my list of places I would love to visit. Starting in Athens for all is stunning historical monuments, history and high-end boutiques, honeymooners then opt for a spot of island hopping  - soaking up all of that sun, sea and natural beauty.

 

Santorini is one of those places you just have to visit with is picturesque white-washed house against the piercing blue sky - one of the best places in the world to view the sun set.

 

The country of the God of Love Eros makes Greece a perfect destnation for newlyweds.

3. Italy

And last but not least - Italy - where we in fact chose to honeymoon! Where to start! As a honeymooner you really will be spoiled for choice in Italy. From the rugged beauty of the Amalfi coast and its winding roads (not for the faint hearted!) which lead from one beautiful town to the next to Tuscany with its rolling landscape, beautiful sunshine and hilltops towns where you can lose yourself for an afternoon. Then there is the romance and uniqueness of Venice and the Italian lakes where couples can truly relax and unwind. Italy has my heart and we spent such a wonderful 3 weeks exploring all that is has to offer!
