We have featured before Venice as a wedding destination but this corner of Italy is also a great place where newly weds can have their honeymoon. Its 118 islands and snaking canals have a lot to offer for couples. It is a romantic city of old villas, unique buildings, and rich culture.
The best time to visit is during summer which happens in May thru June and September. If you are opting for a winter wedding and honeymoon, Venice is also nice although damp and cold. The streets and canals though are very calm and stunning.
For your Venice honeymoon, here are some of the best things to do:
Explore the streets of Venice
Walking around the quaint streets of Venice is among the most romantic you can do with your spouse. Walk while holding each other’s hand around the Piazza San Marcos considered as among the most beautiful squares in Europes. Just appreciate the ambiance or you can pose for pictures. You can also visit the Bridge of Sighs and Rialto Bridge which are among the most romantic spots in Venice.
If you want to have some peace and quiet, you and your spouse can enjoy a glass of wine or a good meal in one of the outdoor cafes in Venice. There quaint piazzas near the Zattere promenade. Venetian cuisine is mostly seafoods and vegetables.
What will be Venice without a gondola ride. Relax in the rowboat and enjoy every moment of the ride as you see Venice from a different perspective. Enjoy the sunset as your surroundings change to a plethora of colors.
