From the Almalfi coast to Capri, Milan and Rome, Italy has so many beautiful places to offer newlyweds on their honeymoon adventure. From classy couture to history, culture, art and great food, Italy is the perfect get-away after the stresses of destination wedding planning abate but no place is quite so romantic as Venice. Surrounded by water, Venice may be small but it has a big heart and there is plenty to see and do. Pizza off St. Marks square and a Gondola ride through the quaint yet quiet waterways goes without saying. Opera at one of the many theatres, gelato along the promenade, a visit to Saint Mark’s Basilica are other must-dos. Summer can be busy so it is advisable to get to sightseeing spots early as lines can be long. Just don’t forget to pick up a unique piece of glass jewellery in Murano, a short water taxi ride from the mainland. Even if jewellery is not on the agenda, go for the view – this particular stretch of water offers one of the most spectacular sailaways in the world and attracts all the big cruise lines.
