Three Most Romantic Cities For Honeymoons

Paris

The City of Lights (and Love) has everything for a perfect honeymoon. Take a stroll along the Seine (the river that cuts through Paris) and admire the scene along its left and right banks. Along the way, spend some time relaxing on the Pont Neuf (the oldest bridge in Paris) and check out the unbelievably beautiful cathedral Notre Dame. At night, visit one of Paris’ famous jazz clubs (try Le Caveau de la Huchette). Could you imagine a day more perfect than this one described?

Venice

Venice’s unique layout — curvy, narrow streets interspersed with canals — makes it a wonder to explore. Although you shouldn’t miss the major tourist spots like Piazza San Marco, the city’s main square, and Ponte dell’ Accademia, a bridge across the Grand Canal, you should also take a boat off the beaten path. There’s no better way to see Venice than to wander because you can’t get lost. Start at Piazza San Marco and see where the side streets take you. Be sure to stop in a bacaro (a Venetian wine bar) for a glass of Chianti in the afternoon.

Rome and Florence

Rome has a more energetic feel, and you can spend each day admiring monuments like the Colosseum and St. Peter’s Basilica. The ambience in Florence is all about the Renaissance, so soak in the art of Michelangelo and Botticelli, and marvel at the dome in the Duomo Cathedral. In Rome, sample gelato at Il Gelato di San Crispino and visit some of the city’s famous fountains at night. If the Trevi Fountain is too crowded, head to the Fountain of the Four Rivers at Piazza Navona (but throw a coin and make a wish at each). In Florence, climb to the top of the Palazzo Pitti (one of the biggest palaces in the city) for a fabulous view or place a lock on the bridge Ponte Vecchio and throw the key into the Arno River: According to legend, this means your love will last forever.
