Honeymoon Paris

In “The World’s Love Capital” (as it is often referred to as), love is literally in the air. Offering so many opportunities for a romantic escape, Paris, France is a place you must visit while you are in love. What a better way to experience its romance than choosing it for your European honeymoon destination?

What to do:

3. Venice, Italy

Honeymoon Venice

Venice offers its guests a different kind of beauty. With no cars/buses, etc. allowed in the heart of the city, it is a place where tranquility meets old style romance. This is the place where you will spend hours aimlessly wandering around, crossing tiny bridges over even tinier canals, hand in hand with your husband, only to find out that you are back where you left off. The only thing that will have changed will be the way you felt while the only thing disturbing your peace will be the sound of an accordion, coming from a gondola going by.

What to do:
• Visit the Basilica di San Marco
• Get lost in the Jewish Ghetto (and enjoy the sights while there!)
• Feed the pigeons in one of the world’s most beautiful squares, Piazza San Marco
• Enjoy one of Venice’s most famous views, the Grand Canal, from Ponde di Rialto
• Make a tour of Venice’s neighboring islands (Murano and Burano are the most famous)
