Whether you're looking to relax and unwind after your hectic planning or whether you plan on doing as much sightseeing and activities as you can, Italy can provide opportunities for both. Venice has romance in bucketfuls and you can relax in a gondola with a leisurely ride along the canals. Rome is buzzing and vibrant with plenty of ancient sites to visit, designer shops and lively nightlife.
Italy has an exciting mixture of natural landscapes as well as ancient history, made evident in buildings and museums, all waiting to be explored. With frequent flights from South Africa, a honeymoon in Italy is full of romance and variety. A visit to Rome has to include the Colosseum dating back to Roman times and the impressive Trevi Fountain of the Renaissance Period. Stop at one of the many gelaterias or eat in one of the surrounding fine restaurants. If art and architecture is your thing, then Florence possibly rivals Rome and famous past residents include Leonardo Da Vinci, Raphael, Dante and Michelangelo, to name but a few. Besides art galleries, it boasts the Duomo (cathedral) and its impressive Piazza as well as Ponte Vecchio, the famous shop lined bridge crossing the Arno River. However you spend your time, your honeymoon will be unforgettable.
