Traveling to these regions in September or October offers unique experiences: hunting for white truffles, then participating in an authentic cooking experience with famous local chefs. But if you’re the couple that would rather opt for a sun-splashed getaway during the summer months, Italy can provide you that, too.
Colorful villages sprinkle Italy’s coastline from Cinque Terre to the Amalfi Coast. When I was in Positano, I woke up early in the morning and pushed open the shutters to my balcony to inhale the sweet fragrance of flowers twisting around the portico. I’d sip my strong Italian coffee and gaze at the sailboats and yachts floating in the Mediterranean Sea.
But perhaps some of the most outstanding experiences lie in the islands of Sardinia, Sicily and Capri. You can float in the sparkling azure water at the Blue Grotto, with sunlight streaming through the cave entrance. A place to peacefully enjoy the remainder of your honeymoon, although that’s not where our trip ends.
