Our Thoughts

Newlyweds have long flocked to European honeymoon destinations to celebrate their love. With so many options to choose from, both seasoned travellers and first-time visitors are sure to find another perfect match in a European city. 

For those planning their post-nuptial travels, here’s a sample itinerary that will take you through some of Europe’s most dreamy honeymoon towns.

Fly From YVR to London

London Eye has been voted the most romantic location in London. Book online for all special ticket options, including the Champagne Experience and Cupid’s Capsule.

In three nights/four days, you should be able to check most of London’s landmarks. The classic must-sees are Big Ben, the London Eye, Tower Bridge, Buckingham Palace, and the British Museum. If you keep a quick tempo, you can also visit Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London, the Shard, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Trafalgar Square, and Piccadilly Circus.

For some spots that are more off the beaten path, check out this itinerary to make the most of 72 hours in London.

From London, Fly to Prague for Three Nights

Prague is a bustling city with storied churches, narrow streets, a hilltop castle and statue-lined bridges that create the scene of an urban fairy tale. The city is full of history and fantastic food, and the Gothic, Baroque-style architecture creates an ultra-romantic atmosphere for honeymooners.

Prague is packed with breathtaking architecture, stunning views, charming alleys, maze-like cobbled streets and fascinating art galleries.

Significant landmarks include Charles Bridge, the Old Town, Prague’s Astronomical Clock, the Castle Complex, and of course, the Czech beer.

I would highly recommend staying at the Aria Hotel, a chic, contemporary boutique hotel that is perfectly situated in Lesser Town, just steps away from the Charles Bridge and Prague Castle.

For a romantic night out, try Mlynec restaurant, which is in a stunning location by the river in the very center of Prague, next to and overlooking Charles Bridge. It offers a wonderfully balanced international menu, using fresh local and seasonal ingredients, and the atmosphere is elegant and sophisticated. Be sure to save time afterwards for a horse-drawn carriage ride through the Old Town, complete with champagne.

Fly from Prague to Naples

From Prague fly to Naples on EasyJet; it’s the only direct flight and cheap to boot! In Naples, pick up a rental car and drive towards Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast, Italy’s premier vacation spot, and home to some of the best beaches on the continent.

With its gorgeous coastlines, seaside villages and mountaintop hideaways, Southern Italy is the ideal spot for a romantic honeymoon.

One look at Southern Italy and you may believe that you’ve found heaven on earth. With sparkling sea views, dramatic cliffs, and picturesque towns, this area seems tailor-made for honeymooners and couples in love. You’ll find romance in every corner of this beautiful region.

Splurge and stay at Grand Hotel Excelsior Vittoria,  a five-star luxury hotel with views over the Gulf of Naples and Mount Vesuvius. It‰’s pricey, but definitely well worth the cost. If you’re looking for a more affordable option, consider Hotel Admiral, which is tucked away in the Marina Grande port. The Hotel Admiral is well-known for its romantic environment and proximity to great restaurants and attractions.

Stay and explore the city, or take the train and explore Pompeii, an ancient Roman city that was destroyed (and preserved) by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius in 79 A.D.

To get a clearer picture of what everyday life in ancient Rome was really like, visit the well-preserved (and unlucky) city of Pompeii.

Book a day trip to nearby Positano via boat and enjoy the island covered with pastel-coloured houses that draws in the rich and famous for its luxurious cliffside resorts and fine Italian dining.

When the time comes, fly home from either Naples or Rome (if you’re lucky enough to be able to squeeze in an extra day or two away).
