Home to some of the most romantic destinations in the world, Europe has a whole bundle to offer couples after their once-in-a-lifetime honeymoon. From the timeless romance of Italy, including the beautiful Amalfi Coast and the alluring canals of Venice, to the idyllic Greek islands, where whitewashed houses and blue-domed churches tumble down to the Aegean, a honeymoon in Europe is all about sophisticated luxury.
Europe’s fantastic scenery makes for a brilliant self-drive honeymoon, with some spectacular roads meandering along its Mediterranean coastlines. Live like they do in the movies, cruising along Italy’s Amalfi Coast and beyond, stopping to explore secret caverns and pretty pastel-coloured towns, and sample some of Europe's finest food and drink along the way. Alternatively, explore Croatia's historic cities and untouched coastlines on a classic self-drive holiday.
Europe’s got its fair share of gorgeous islands, offering wonderfully secluded beaches and tiny villages that are just perfect for hiding away on an idyllic beach honeymoon. Arguably one of the most romantic places in Europe is the Aegean, home to Santorini, Mykonos and other such postcard-perfect Greek islands. Spend a blissful Aegean honeymoon sipping cocktails on clifftop terraces and imbibing the picturesque scenery, where brilliant white facades pepper the coastal slopes.
For something a little more off-the-beaten-track, Italy’s Aeolian Islands are perfect for an Italian honeymoon where you’ll never be found. A romantic getaway to these volcanic islands will have you exploring medieval towns and rejuvenating in their natural mud baths and thermal pools, as well as taking in the postcard-perfect Amalfi Coast.
Europe is dazzlingly diverse, with endless options for a memorable honeymoon. How about heading to Arctic Sweden to stay in a hotel made entirely of ice and see the magical Northern Lights?
With such easy accessibility between countries, there’s plenty of scope to combine multiple destinations on a honeymoon in Europe. Travel in the footsteps of the great Marco Polo on this fantastic Italy and Croatia honeymoon, which will see you exploring the Italian palazzos lining the romantic canals of Venice before hopping over to Croatia to sail around secluded islands for some low-key glamour. Alternatively, explore the highlights of sunny Spain, soaking up some culture in colourful Barcelona before celebrating the start of married life on the party island of Ibiza. If you’re still struggling to settle on a destination, why not pack it all into one unforgettable European honeymoon and travel through the entire continent?
