Honeymoon moment: Sipping limoncello on a vine-shaded terrace overlooking the Bay of Naples.
Sorrento boasts some of the best views going, thanks to its clifftop location. Its main square is ideal for people-watching and al fresco coffee, while the old town’s narrow streets are perfect for wandering hand-in-hand.
Honeymoon moment: Strolling through the flower-filled clifftop gardens of Villa Rufolo in Ravello.
The Amalfi Coast is one of the most beautiful – and romantic – coastlines in the world, with pastel-painted villages, small sandy coves and spectacular views at every turn.
Honeymoon moment: A private boat ride to the Blue Grotto, a sea cave with brilliant blue waters.
Escape to beautiful Capri for a honeymoon to remember. Hire a boat out and admire the island from the water, take the chairlift up to the summit of Monte Solaro, or wander through the romantic Gardens of Augustus.
Honeymoon moment: Watching the sun rise over the Mediterranean from clifftop Taormina.
Diverse Sicily has plenty to offer honeymooners, whether you fancy exploring ancient towns, swimming in natural gorges, hiking up a volcano or just relaxing on the beach.
Honeymoon moment: A bottle of Chianti and a table for two in Lucca’s medieval piazza.
Imagine winding lanes, rows of vineyards, rolling hills and medieval villages, and you’ve got Tuscany, one of Italy’s most honeymoon-worthy regions. Prefer a seaside escape? Try the sandy beaches of the Tuscany Coast.
Honeymoon moment: A sunset boat ride, followed by a candlelit dinner in the romantic town of Bellagio.
Surrounded by dramatic peaks and edged with postcard-pretty towns and villages, it’s easy to see why Lake Como has captured the hearts of poets, artists and writers over the years.
Honeymoon moment: A picnic à deux on a secluded white-sand beach.
With sugar-white sands to rival the Caribbean, Sardinia is a fantastic choice for a beach-based honeymoon. Its charming villages and historic towns mean you won’t be short of things to do away from the beach, either.
Honeymoon moment: Taking in the views from romantic Malcesine Castle.
As Italy’s largest lake, there’s plenty to see and do here (castles, wine-tasting tours, hiking trails), but the laid-back culture means that sipping prosecco by the water is as equally as acceptable as touring the towns that dot the lake’s edges.
Honeymoon moment: An aperitivo on the Piazza della Rotonda overlooking the Pantheon.
With thousands of years of history on show and some of the country’s finest restaurants, Rome makes a fantastic honeymoon destination. Be sure to throw a coin into the Trevi Fountain before you leave – it’s said to ensure your return to the city one day.
Honeymoon moment: Gliding down a moonlit canal on a traditional gondola.
It’s hard to find a city as romantic as Venice. Glide along the maze of canals on a traditional gondola, sip coffee in style at a pavement cafe in Piazza San Marco, and marvel at the glittering mosaics in St. Mark’s Basilica.
Honeymoon moment: Watching the sun set over the Arno River from Piazzale Michelangelo.
Surrounded by rolling Tuscan hills, flame-coloured Florence is a sight to behold. Admire the famous Duomo and browse the jewellery boutiques along the Ponte Vecchio, then wander hand-in-hand along the banks of the Arno.
