My husband(!) and I decided to honeymoon in Italy -- his first time to the country! We ate our way from Milan to Positano. I've been to Italy multiple times but every time I go is a new, exciting experience!

Vatican Scavi Tour

Vatican City

Everyone needs to visit Vatican City once! Since I had already been, we did a tour of the excavations under St. Peter's Basilica. Only 250 visitors are allowed each day so book in advance!

Romantic Hotel in Positano

Hotel Poseidon, Viale Pasitea, Positano, Province of Salerno, Italy

Hotel Poseidon was amazing! It has great views of Positano and the ocean. You could relax all day by the pool or walk down to the beach

Private boat tour with Blue Star

Blue Star Soc.Coop. A.R.L., Via Positanesi D'America, Positano, Province of Salerno, Italy

Probably our favorite day of the entire honeymoon. Prices were pretty reasonable considering we had a boat and captain all to ourselves for 8 hours. We originally wanted to go to Capri but the wind conditions meant the Blue Grotto was closed, so the captain suggested cruising along the Amalfi coast would be more enjoyable. He took us all along the Amalfi Coast and into grottos, stopped wherever we wanted to go swimming and snorkeling, docked in Amalfi for lunch. Snacks and beer/prosecco included on the boat.

Dinner at Ristorante Max

ristorante max, positano, italy

Off of the main walkway to the beach near the shops. We ate outside in the garden, was really nice setting and food was great.

Dinner at Tre Sorelle

Le Tre Sorelle, Positano, Province of Salerno, Italy

This was our first meal in Positano, right off the beach so it has beautiful views. One of the best meals we had in Italy. Great view since it looks out onto the beach and also prime for people watching. Unreal lobster spaghetti.

Dinner at La Tagliata

La Tagliata, Positano, Province of Salerno, Italy

This is located above Positano in Montepertuso, high up so the views are incredible. No menu, they serve you a multicourse dinner of whatever they’re making that night, wine included. So much food! Honestly I think the food was better at the other restaurants we tried, but the view here was pretty special. They provide roundtrip transportation (apparently most restaurants that aren’t in the main part of town do), just have your hotel call them to arrange.

Visit to the Colosseum

Colosseum, Piazza del Colosseo, Rome, Metropolitan City of Rome, Italy

Visit to Galleria dell'Accademia di Firenze

Galleria dell'Accademia, Via Ricasoli, Florence, Metropolitan City of Florence, Italy

Don't skip seeing Michaelangelo's David while in Florence!

Ponte Vecchio

Ponte Vecchio, Florence, Metropolitan City of Florence, Italy

Cross over the Ponte Vecchio to pass by the jewelry shops -- but also cross the river one bridge over so you can get great photos of this Florentine landmark!

Trevi Fountain

Trevi Fountain, Piazza di Trevi, Rome, Metropolitan City of Rome, Italy

Toss a coin over your shoulder into the Trevi Fountain so you're guaranteed to return Rome one day!
