Christine and Arbi had a wonderful time on their honeymoon in Venice and Florence with a last minute trop to Milan to see a European football match! They then travelled down to the Amalfi Coast and stayed at Casa Angelina in the town of Praiano. This was their first time in Italy and they loved it- so much so they are already planning to return soon! Read more about their experience below.
“Our hotel was absolutely beautiful and the workers we really nice and helpful. They gave us wonderful suggestions on restaurants and guided us to the places we wanted to visit. During our short stay there we deliberately got lost in the little streets while shopping, dined at amazing little restaurants, visited San Marco Square, and took a boat to the island of San Lazaro and Murano. Our last night there we decided to take a private taxi to the Hotel Danieli for dinner. It was perfect.”
“From Venice we took the train to Florence. We both enjoyed traveling with the train and going through all the cute little towns. The first class tickets were absolutely worth it! I didn’t think I would love any other city just as much as Venice but Florence was amazing. Our hotel, again was awesome. It was in a great location, center to a lot of great stores and restaurants. The staff was really nice and helpful also. The shopping we did here was pure damage but all worth it… Haha. I do wish I had more time here so next time I would stay a day or two longer although my husband was happy with the length of our stay.”
“The next day we took a train to Milan to go to the game. Our hotel was still pretty close to the Duomo and all the stores. This was definitely a plus since we wanted to walk around and soak in Milan as much as we could. The city was popping because of the fashion week so it was really exciting to be mixed up in that energy.”
“After Sienna, we went back to Florence and took a train to Naples. I can’t emphasize how much we enjoyed our train rides from city to city. Freccia Rossa was the best. When we arrived to our hotel the rain clouds had departed and we were left with this amazing view!! WOW. It was fantastic. For the next four days we went to Positano for lunch, Sorrento for dinner, visited Amalfi and Ravello with a scooter and Capri for the day! It was perfect.”

Castiglioncello del Trinoro, home to Monteverdi, is midway between Rome and Florence in the heart of Tuscany. The views alone are enough to make any honeymoon completely unforgettable! “Any view from this mountaintop retreat reveals a way of life that has remained largely unchanged for centuries. Sheep grazing on the hillsides provide the milk for pecorino cheese, while local vineyards produce the grapes that will become the finest wines in the world.”
Day trips are an option for any couple looking to explore the surrounding area, as Florence and Rome are accessible by catching the train from nearby Chiusi. “Whether you choose to stay on the mountaintop and hike the trails surrounding the village, or sit on the veranda and admire the vastness of the Val d’Orcia, or drive to a nearby village for shopping, art and history, or make an excursion to one of the greatest cities in the world, it is all possible during a stay at Monteverdi.”
Easy to see why this hotel has been a favorite for our honeymoon couples!

Mallory and Jonathan spent their honeymoon in Greece: Athens, Crete and Santorini. They loved their experience and were kind enough to share it with us!
Athens: Our timeframe was great! We got the sights done in one day. We definitely recommend getting to the Acropolis in the early morning before it gets crowded. I think we were there at 8:30am and by the time we left, it was getting very busy. We visited Areopagus, Ancient Agora, Syntagma Square, Ministiraki and Plaka. The flea market (Ministiraki) was very cool! We stayed at the New Hotel and it was great! The people were friendly and helpful and the place was immaculate. Their rooftop bar is pretty cool with a great view of the Acropolis and the location was perfect for getting around Athens. We would recommend it!
Crete: Crete is much bigger than we realized and doing some research ahead of time is recommended. Domes of Elounda is a pretty neat hotel with fantastic views! We got an amazing Villa upgrade, which was incredible! Thank you, thank you, for that. It was unreal (2 bedrooms, three bathrooms, our own pool, kitchen, etc…). Amazing.
Santorini: The ferry was excellent, thank you for recommending the business class seats. As advertised, they were way better! Canavas Oia Suites is a really neat place, obviously with amazing views and service. The Santorini Wine Tour was great, we had a really fun time on this excursion! We met other couples, we loved the guide and obviously enjoyed the wine. It was well worth it to do this excursion and I would highly recommend a wine tour to anyone that likes wine!
