A honeymoon in Italy – Part 3 – Tuscany

So the 3rd and final part of our honeymoon in Italy (after Venice and Lake Garda), was 8 days in Tuscany. And what a beautiful 8 days they were!

We were lucky enough to be able to stay at my new in-laws house, which they’d vacated for us and is in a quiet village called Soiana, has it’s own pool and beautiful terrace and balconies on each floor. Lucky us! Because it was in a family house, the fridges were stocked, the cellar was full of wine and it meant we could truly kick back and relax. We had the run of the place (thanks mummy and daddy in law).Continue reading

A honeymoon in Italy – Part 2 – Lake Garda

So the second stop on our amazing honeymoon in Italy (after Venice), was the enchanting Lake Garda. We had 6 nights based in Sirmione, which is a picturesque Medieval town centred around the Castello Scaligero and is located on a peninsula at the bottom of Lake Garda.

There are two parts to Sirmione; the newer area leading from Desenzano into the old town – this is more modern, with slightly cheaper hotels and restaurants and also houses the markets in Summer. The second part is the old town, which can only be reached by entering the castle walls and spreads right to the end of the peninsula. This is where we stayed and if your budget allows, I highly recommend staying inside the castle walls. It is far prettier, you’re within a stones-throw from all the best bars, restaurants and shops and you have the prettiest views across the Lake.

The town is alive and buzzing during the day as is popular with tourists across the Lake, but is quieter in the evening when day tourists get the last boat back to their respective towns.

A honeymoon in Italy – Part 1 – Venice

We had the most wonderful honeymoon in Italy, in May this year. It sounds totally corny but it was everything we had dreamed of. The sun was shining (almost continually), the water was glistening, the food was outstanding and the Prosecco was flowing.

When picking a honeymoon destination, all the usual hot spots came up for discussion; The Maldeves, USA, The Bahamas, The Carribbean etc etc. All of which would have been amazing I’m sure. However, we wanted a honeymoon full of culture, food and relaxation and Italy came to mind. It also has the added benefit of being just a 2 hr 1o min flight away. We both like to relax, chill and sunbathe on holiday, but both also get bored quite quickly, so wanted somewhere with plenty of towns to visit and experiences to have away from the pool. Italy was the best honeymoon choice EVER!
