There is a way to mix healthy doses of romance and education in a honeymoon trip and it’s called Italy.
Italy is at the center of the development of the ancient and modern worlds. It is a fabled land filled with lush landscapes, intimate cafes, cultural treasures and more romantic opportunities than you can shake a stick at. That makes it an ideal location for a post wedding trip to get a marriage off on the right foot.
But why settle for a boring beach (as nice as they are), when you can have all that Italy has to offer. Italy honeymoon packages will fill you and your partner with wonderment, fun, of course romance, and learning. That’s right, you didn’t read wrong. Italy has the superpower to mix education and romance effortlessly and to great enjoyment by all.
Here is a collection of some of the must-visit attractions in Italy that are as romantic as they are educational:
Castles: For every woman, who was ever a little girl who dreamed of being a princess, there is nothing more romantic than a castle. Of course, these regal structures are also steeped in history. In Milan, the Castello Sforzesco is a prime example of the finest the country has to offer.
Breathtaking architecture: Italy is well-known among those in the know as one of the best places in the world to get lost as you stroll the streets taking in the gorgeous urban scenery. In Florence, which was founded in 200 B.C., couples can stroll through picturesque palaces such as the Pitti, Strozzi and Rucellai or take in some of the art world’s greatest treasures.
Museums: In Italy, even the museums are romantic. Naples has some of the best museums in the country where works by the greats like Michelangelo and Botticelli may be viewed at the Capodimonte Museum and Gallery. When you’re done perusing the art world’s offerings, take a romantic walk through the Royal Palace Gardens.
Rome: No trip to Italy – romantic or otherwise – is complete without a trip to the seat of the once-all-encompassing Roman Empire and the spiritual home of Catholicism – the Vatican. Founded in 753 B.C. Rome contains such world treasures as the Pantheon and the Castel Sant’ Angelo – a papal fortress from the sixth century.
If you can’t visit Italy and walk away deeper in love, and more educated, then you simply aren’t trying.
