A honeymoon in Tuscany: what’s more romantic? Luxurious villas and ancient farmhouses spread over picturesque landscapes, vineyards and sea sides. The ideal location where you can spend your honeymoon, exploring medieval villages or relax on the warm beaches in Versillia or Maremma.
Even though the United States, the Caribbean and tropical islands are some of the most popular choices of a couple, we assure you that Tuscany is the perfect location for a honeymoon. It’s often chosen by foreign couples: the architecture, known all over the world, attracts all types of tourists. But a bucolic farmhouse is an interesting idea as well.
Honeymoon in Tuscany: where to go
Love reigns all over Tuscany. Bright landscapes, various activities, outdoor trips and a magical atmosphere: a honeymoon in Tuscany will be an unforgettable experience. Here are some locations for the right amount of romanticism and relax.
Birthplace of the Renaissance and one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Florence may be your first choice if you want to spend your honeymoon in Tuscany. Even if you want to go somewhere else, you should spend a part of your trip here.
The reasons? Ponte Vecchio, Piazzale Michelangelo, Galleria degli Uffizi and the delicious restaurants in the city. Florence is also the first location where you can start you trip to the Tuscan countryside.
Full of art and culture during the Middle Age, Siena is perfect for daydreaming with its hilly roads, gothic cathedrals and stoned castles. Walk around Piazza del Campo, in the middle of the city, or spend some relaxing days in Val d’Orcia where you can stay in ancient farmhouses like Abbazia di Spineto.
It’s famous all over the world for the Leaning Tower, but don’t forget to visit Campo dei Miracoli, Battistero and the Cathedral with Galileo’s lamp. Pisa is the ideal city for relaxing after the organization of a wedding and offers several facilities for a weekend or a week.
Medieval villages: from Volterra to San Gimignano
Ancient villages like San Gimignano, Montalcino or Volterra are the ideal locations for a relaxing honeymoon where you can find fascinating facilities for your stay. The city center is part of the UNESCO heritage, there are panoramic views of the Tuscan hills and medieval squares along shops and historical structures.
We want to suggest some typical experiences.
Sit at the table and try typical dishes
This region inspires explorations and tastings of some of the best enogastronomic products of Europe. Try local products, from roast to cold cuts, cheese, mushrooms, truffles and good wine (don’t forget to take a tour of the Chianti vineyards).
Drive a Vespa among the hills
Driving along the countryside and eating in a restaurant with a panoramic view is really romantic. Rent a vintage Vespa and go up the green Tuscan hills: this should be one of your priorities during a honeymoon.
Walk around the city streets
The Tuscan countryside offers a lot of lovely towns, most of them from the Middle Age. They are excellent places to walk around, learn the city history and discover the Tuscan street food.
