Need help deciding on a destination for our honeymoon!

Taylor, on February 6, 2024 at 1:05 PM Posted in Honeymoon 0 12
My fiancé and I are really torn on where to go. He has always pictured somewhere tropical, but recently started liking the idea of Europe. I’ve always wanted Europe as our destination. We are considering Germany, Italy, and England. I have been to England before and it was great, but it’s not as exciting to me as Germany or Italy. Help us decide please! If you have been to both, that would be incredible but if you have been to either then please list out the reasons you loved/didn’t like it and places you would/wouldn’t recommend. Cost really isn’t a huge concern because we will have been saving for 2 years for the honeymoon. Thank you so much!

    We are thinking October, sorry that is a pretty important detail I forgot to add.

    Since he was originally considering something tropical, why not do Italy? That way you can still get a beach day in on the Italian coast!

    Do either of you speak German or Italian? While not required it could make vacationing in one of those spots easier or more desirable. Otherwise, I’d compromise on Italy. You’ll have the European culture, and he’ll have the weather and beaches. 🙂

    Since you've already been to England, maybe give Germany or Italy a shot.

    I had the chance to go to Germany and Italy, and both are amazing places for a honeymoon. Germany combines traditional beauty with new advancements. Regions such as Bavaria and its storybook-like castles, alongside the Rhine Valley and its charming river tours, leave lasting impressions. The meals are filling and tasty, and the tradition of beer is very lively, particularly when it's Oktoberfest in Munich.

    Italy appears to be something from a dream. The paintings, the buildings, and the cuisine captivate me completely. Rome feels like traveling back in history, Florence is a sanctuary for those who love art, and Venice has this enchantment with its waterways and bridges. As for the Amalfi Coast, it's simply a slice of heaven.

    Because you have visited England already and liked it, my suggestion is to try a new place now. Germany and Italy both provide special experiences that are not available elsewhere. Should you be in search of a place that is snug and delightful, consider Germany. However, if it's an experience filled with passion and artistry you desire, Italy should be your choice. Either way, you're in for an amazing honeymoon!

    Germany and Italy are both beautiful, however October in Germany may be busy because of Oktoberfest. Just something to keep in mind. I'm sure Tuscany is gorgeous that time of year! Especially if you like wine! Smiley smile

    I have been between the 2 as well (tropical or Italy). I know that in our case, I have been doing most of the planning and as the time gets closer, stress levels will be high. Because of that, we decided a tropical All inclusive will be the best bet so we don't need to worry about planning that also. I was leaning towards Italy as a 5 year anniversary vacation.

    My fiancé and I went to Paris, Venice, and Monaco last month. It was an amazing experience! He proposed in Venice on a gondola. 🥹🥰

    Those are all wonderful European destinations to consider. Since you mentioned wanting somewhere tropical in October, I thought I'd suggest Portugal as an option, even if it's not currently on your list. That time of year the average weather in Portugal is around 19°C - perfect for hiking, beaches, scenic nature and relaxing. It also coincides with the grape harvest season, ideal for wine lovers. As the 8th most English proficient country in Europe, language won't be a barrier https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EF_English_Proficiency_Index

    Still feel you’re on the edge whether to choose Portugal, perhaps these tourism statistics can persuade you https://gowithguide.com/blog/tourism-in-portugal-statistics-2023-the-ultimate-guide-5600
