Which countries would suit us best for a honeymoon?

Jump to last reply

I am starting to plan my 3 week honeymoon in September 2016 and have begun doing research online, however, would love some guidance on which countries to visit! I'm sure this is the first of many posts as I begin my planning process but if anyone can steer me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate it!

We are 24 and 26 and just got back from our first trip to Europe a few weeks ago. I did a TON of research and we visited Italy for two weeks: Venice, Rome, and the hilltowns of Tuscany (Siena, Pienza, Montalcino, etc.) We loved Venice, liked Rome (because of all of the options of stuff to do, but we aren't huge city people), and we didn't care for Tuscany. We didn't find much to do in Tuscany and found all of the hilltowns to be very similar. We did like Siena, however.

For our honeymoon, we are looking to visit either 2 or 3 countries. I am open to suggestions of which countries would fit what we're looking for, but so far I have been considering Spain, the Amalfi coast of Italy, Sicily, Croatia, France (I heard southern France is beautiful), Prague. My fiancé is not a big seafood lover so I'm not sure if someplace like Portugal would work out too well. I am not too interested in England, Ireland, Scotland for this trip, and I heard Switzerland can be very expensive.

We enjoy eating, drinking, general sightseeing, history, and just finding fun activities to do. Good food is a must! We are not interested in seeing art, churches, or (most) museums. In Venice, we loved going kayaking and participating in a free tour about the history of the city. We spent a lot of time on the go in Italy, and this trip we would prefer a better mix of activities/sightseeing with relaxing in a beautiful place. We don't want to spend a lot of time on the beach, but a few beach days here and there would be okay. We don't enjoy big cities, but small walkable cities or big towns would be great, places with stuff to do and plenty of restaurants.

Our budget is moderate. I believe our Italy trip was about $6k for two weeks and that was fine. We would be okay with renting a car, taking a train, flying between countries, etc.

If anyone has any suggestions of countries that would fit what we're looking for, it would be much appreciated!
