Venice is one of the world’s most romantic cities and is known as ‘La Serenissima,’ or ‘The Most Serene.’ In a place where everyone travels by boat, no honeymoon would be complete without a gondola ride on the Grand Canal, where you can learn about the palaces and churches that line it, or simply be serenaded. Visit Piazza San Marco, home to the Basilica di San Marco and be entertained by lively street performers and take a walk across the Rialto Bridge, one of many that link the city’s 100-plus small islands. For a day trip, consider a visit to Murano, renowned for its Venetian glass or Torcello, which boasts beautiful picnic spots for an intimate lunch.
The abundance of water in Venice provides some of the best seafood in Europe. Some noteworthy restaurants include Locanda Cipriani, Antiche Carampane, Osteria Alle Testiere and Antico Martini.
