Italy has quickly become on of the most popular honeymoon destinations. We love the romance, the views and the combination of coastal towns with the history and energy of some of the world’s most famous cities.
Today’s honeymoon inspiration: Southern Italy
Stop 1: Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria, Sorrento, Italy
There’s so much to do here! Relax in the tranquil garden, swim in the sumptuous pool or take the lift down to the pier. It’s the perfect base from which to explore the area, including Capri, Positano, Ravello, Pompeii and Naples.
We suggest: a gourmet dinner at Michelin-starred restaurant Terrazza Bosquet and enjoy an elegant combination of regional and Mediterranean cuisine, using fresh, local produce — some from the hotel’s garden.
Stop 2: Hotel Hassler, Rome, Italy
Hotel Hassler Roma stands at the top of the Spanish Steps as the epitome of “la dolce vita.” In the hotel’s 96 elegantly appointed guestrooms and suites, you’ll find walk-in closets, classic or contemporary decor and your own private balcony or gazebo. The Hassler’s Michelin-star sixth-floor restaurant, Imàgo, is a city icon serving creative fare as delectable as the views.
Equally enjoyable: a relaxing massage followed by a refreshing juice on the Amorvero SPA’s terrace.
Stop 3: Portrait Firenze, Florence, Italy
Overlooking the iconic Ponte Vecchio on the Arno River, Portrait Firenze provides a fashionable home away from home in this timeless city. Owned by the Ferragamo family, you can expect haute couture touches around every corner; the 36 suites are warm and inviting with kitchenettes, handcrafted furnishings and lavish fabrics. Honor bars are stocked with gourmet goodies, while private balconies reveal mesmerizing views of the river, city rooftops and Florentine countryside.
You’re mere steps from the Uffizi Gallery and Piazza della Signoria.
The Lifestyle Team is truly superior; let them arrange a gourmet walking tour through the markets or a private viewing at one of Florence’s fashion houses.
