Trip to Europe

Our 5 Favorite Cities For Your Honeymoon In Europe

Posted on 01/14/2020

Europe was made for lovers.

Whether you're taking your first international journey as a married couple or celebrating years of marriage, there's nothing like the twisting, cobblestone alleys and beautiful architecture of Europe.

It's easy to fall in love with the romanticism of these cities:


Does any culture do romance better than the Italians?

As the birthplace of the Renaissance, Florence is a fantastic city to celebrate your new beginnings on your honeymoon. But couples at any stage of their relationship will be mesmerized by its delicious wines from nearby Tuscany and great works of art from Michelangelo and Botticelli. That’s amoré!


Why not travel to the country that is the number one exporter of chocolate? Bruges, Belgium is perfect for popping in and out of sweet smelling chocolate shops and strolling hand-in-hand along cobblestone streets. Bruges is a quaint little town that seems like it jumped straight from the pages of a storybook.

Note: Belgium is also world-famous for beer, so pick a pint from over 110 different styles. Cheers to you!


Technically not a city, but nonetheless islands are incredibly romantic and a treat for your eyes. Gaze at the beautiful hills overflowing with white Cycladic houses, the orange glow of sunsets and sunrises over the Agean Sea, and the crystal clear skies above.

There's no better way to start your marriage than by spending sun-soaked days on the beach, afternoons sipping wine, and lazy mornings exploring the beauty and romance of Santorini.


This wouldn’t be a true list of best romantic cities to visit if we didn’t include Paris.

Paris may be a clichéd honeymoon destination, but the throngs of tourists still can’t take away from the romantic appeal of the French gem. Home to one of the most iconic and romantic monuments on the planet—the Eiffel Tower—Paris is a city that will always be satisfying as a honeymoon destination.

Beyond the allure of the Eiffel Tower, strolling through the cobblestone streets and enjoying the setting of buildings packed with history and culture is one of the most romantic things you can do.


As the story goes, throwing three coins into Rome’s Trevi Fountain assures visitors will find true love, get married and — eventually — return to Rome for another visit.

Rome has an adventure around every corner. Hit the city in search of artistic masterpieces, ancient history, and amazing Italian cuisine. End your days sharing a gelato at a corner café after conquering this exciting city together.

Whether its these five cities or an array of other destinations, there's nothing better than a European honeymoon.
