Visiting this surprising Italian city will feel like unwrapping a gift for your senses. The first thing you want to do is cuddle up to your loved one and enjoy a canal tour in a gondola while a gondoliere is singing an old Italian song. Feeding pigeons in Piazza San Marco should be another typically Venetian thing on your to-do list, together with getting lost in the charming, labyrinthine streets of the city. Pure bliss for a couple in love.

Oh la la! The French capital is the epitome of love and romanticism with its über-famous landmarks, such as the Eiffel Tower, the river Seine and its bateaux mouches (the well-known Parisian boats) and its delicious chocolate croissants served in chic cafés. Paris is undeniably one of the greatest destinations for honeymooners who love museums (some of the best art works in the world are there for you), parks and shopping. Since this was also my honeymoon destination, I can tell you one thing: you won’t regret this choice!

Indulging in the unique beauty and fascination of Cappadocia, a historical region in Central Anatolia, in Turkey, will be utterly romantic. Famous for its one-of-a-kind moon-like landscape, cave churches and underground cities, this place is so quiet and unique that feels almost surreal. Enjoy a hot-air balloon ride (they are so famous here they even have a festival!) and admire the lunar landscape around you. You can’t compare this to anything else you’ve seen before!
