We can divide this trip into four parts: Tuscany, the Amalfi Coast, Capri, and Sicily. Then we leave you a great guide to enjoy an unforgettable honeymoon by visiting honeymoon destinations in Italy.
The Italy of the poets, the Renaissance and some of the most famous wine denominations in the world, such as the Chianti or the Brunello de Montalcino, awaits us on our route between Florence marble and the stately Siena. Starting from Florence to the south, the trip becomes a chromatic gift for our eyes, where the colors of the landscape merge into our retinas, evoking the canvases of Leonardo da Vinci and his contemporaries.
The Amalfi Coast
Naples and its Gulf constitute a luxury destination Italy not only for its heterogeneous geographical conformation but also for its history and culture. In its centre is Naples, once Bourbon capital, famous for pizza, its thousand faces and contradictions, and its complicated relationship with Vesuvius, whose ashes buried Pompeii and Herculaneum.
The monumentality of the former marine republic of Amalfi, the romantic eagle nest of Ravello and the small town of Positano, one of the mecca of the licentious years of the Dolce Vita and the celebrities of the cinema since the 50s, are obligatory stops along the delicious road encased between the sea and the mountain that saves the thirty kilometres that form the Amalfi Coast, or the Costiera, as they say here to this refuge of rich and famous, perfect to be travelled on the back of a convertible.
Island of amazing caves and beautiful mountain landscapes, the rugged Capri is an ideal destination for anyone who loves nature by the sea. In the past, Julio César came to this Italian island to relax. With a panoramic coastline, beautiful villas and luxury boutiques, Capri has been a popular tourist destination since the 1950s.
Capri welcomes travellers with the joy of the colourfulharbour of Marina Grande, invites to the outdoor life that is the Piazzetta, enchants with the beauty of places like the Charterhouse of San Giacomo, surprises with breathtaking views. Among the different panoramic trails, the one that leads from Capri to the Belvedere de Tragara, a viewpoint overlooking the “Faraglioni”, some cliffs that emerge a short distance from the coast.
Sicily, the last border of Italy before Africa breaks into the picture. In it, you will discover the isolated Mediterranean that became succulent spoils of Greeks, Romans, Punics, Byzantines, Arabs, Normans, and Spaniards. A complex civilization that has forged the character of the Sicilians, always on horseback between rites of life and symbolism of death.
On his trip through Italian lands, Goethe records the impression that Sicily produced with this phrase: “Italy without Sicily would not engrave any image in the soul: here is the key to everything.” And it is that this island of the Italian south, treasures fertile landscapes that change at every step and a pleasant climate that we will discover with this route that runs between Palermo, the capital, and that borders the coast of the Tyrrhenian Sea by the south until reaching Taormina.
