*I apologize for the long post but I'm just trying to give some detailed info that may help you make a suggestion that would fit best for us.
Hello! My husband and I got married in February and are finally able to get around to planning and taking our honeymoon! We are planning to go to Europe for 10 days at the end of August/beginning of September. We have traveled to Europe before (Paris, Florence, Barcelona, Amsterdam, London, Munich). We are looking for something that is relaxing (not go go go 24/7 like our previous trips) but we do need a little bit of action and sight seeing because I would be bored laying on a beach for 10 days, haha.
The one place we for sure want to go is the coast of Italy. We loved Florence and just Italy in general so much when we visited and both love beaches/water so the Amalfi coast is a must for us. However, we don't want to stay there the entire time as we do like to travel around while in Europe since its much cheaper than traveling in the US, so we are looking for a 2nd option to add to our trip. Our ideas are below, in no particular order. I would love advice on what would be the best option to add to the Amalfi coast.
- Paris- we have been before but it truly is my favorite place in the world and such a romantic place for a honeymoon. Would also give us a good contrast to the the Amalfi coast with it being a city. We were only there for 3 days last time so there are lots things we didn't get a chance to see or do. I had planned on going for my 30th birthday next May, but we plan on starting a family soon after the honeymoon, so that may not happen. Wondering if this is the best opportunity to get it in but I'm also torn about wanting to see new places.
- Greece- not sure which island. Like I said we love beaches and being on the water. Greece is obviously so beautiful.
- Switzerland-not sure which city and honestly don't know too much about Switzerland. It does look super beautiful though and I feel like it could be be both relaxing and have activities if we choose to do that.
- Finally, we have also talked about staying in Italy the entire 10 days but doing Lake Como/northern Italy for half the trip and the coast for the other half.
Other suggestions are also welcome! Thanks in advance!
