Getting one of the most obvious destinations out of the way, nothing spells romantic like riding a gondola in the quiet canals of Venice. Home to the iconic lover Casanova, it oozes an atmosphere of romance with quiet spots and places to indulge in each other’s company. There’s also the added luxury of diving into the local Italian cuisine for your special alone time in the city.
Continuing the trend of highlighting obvious destinations, the City of love was always going to be near the top of the list. The capital of France, the city prides itself on its medieval architectural sites which floods tourist to the city every year. Inspired French cuisine is never too far behind and when you feel the need to treat yourself there are enough shopping boutiques to cater for the both of you.
For the perfect relaxation honeymoon destination after a hectic period of setting up a wedding, the Portuguese provide an ideal setting just for that. Known as a coastal country, Algarve, in particular, has a selection of white sandy beaches and Algarve villas to choose from so you can have the relaxing, luxurious getaway that you deserve.
Similar to Paris, Barcelona boasts plenty of traditional architecture in a place that mixes fabulous city culture with gorgeous beaches. If you’re unsure whether you wish for relaxation or a bit of cultural discovery then Barcelona would be the ideal setting for the both of you. It’s also easy to reach from other destinations with it just a 2 hour or so train ride away from Madrid, the capital of Spain.
Amsterdam really optimizes chilled-out if that’s exactly what you’re both looking for. Its urban setting doesn’t overwhelm the brilliant history behind the city, rather it provides a modern touch to a city that’s continuously growing. It’s also somewhere that is recommended for same-sex couples as the LGBT community is of high regard in Amsterdam. Of course, be highly advised that when during the summer months there’s plenty of festival activities that make the city come alive so don’t expect a completely chilled out holiday if you were to go around that time.
Take advantage of your time away from the wedding and make sure you visit the destination that’s right for you. Make the most of what Europe has to offer and enjoy your time away where no one else can interfere with your incomparable getaway.
