Honeymoon Hotspot: Cinque Terre, Italy

10 Jun

For those of you who don’t know, Amy and Lindsay actually met while studying abroad in Italy.  During our time in Italy, we happened on some amazing locations.  And while visiting Venice, Rome and Florence are great highlights of an Italian vacation, we wanted to call your attention to the most picturesque location in Italy (in my opinion).  Cinque Terre is five small villages connected by train and trails, which are both fun ways to explore!  There is little car traffic, which adds to the ambiance as well.

WHERE IN THE WORLD?  Cinque Terre is located in the northwest part of Italy, right on the sea.

HOW DO I GET THERE?  There are plenty of flights from Southern California to Italy.  Fly into Cannes, France, Florence or San Remo and take the train.  It’s fairly easy from there.

WHY GO?  Cinque Terre is romantic and allows honeymooners to connect without overloading you with the typical “must see” checklist.  You will enjoy beautiful scenery, relaxing meals and seaside culture.  Make this 2-3 days of an overall Italy vacation.

WHAT’S IT GOING TO COST ME?  Hotels cost anywhere from $100-$500 per night, depending on what you are looking for.  It is a mid-range destination as far as cost goes.

BEST FOR: Romantics, those who want to relax, anyone who loves taking photography.

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: Hotels here book fast, so make sure to do your research on properties and book early for this destination.  Also, the pace of life here is slow, so don’t expect an action packed vacation.

  • Honeymoon Hotspot: Maldives

    15 May

    Every month, we’ll be highlighting destinations across the globe that offer honeymooners an AMAZING getaway.  First off is my all-time favorite destination, the Republic of Maldives.  Some of you may be wondering where in the world this is.  Honestly, I had never heard of them either until I started planning my own honeymoon.  But trust me, if you have the chance to go there, you will not be disappointed.

    WHERE IN THE WORLD?  The Maldives is located off the coast of Sri Lanka, in the Indian Ocean, right near the equator.

    HOW DO I GET THERE?  Here’s the tricky part.  So the Maldives isn’t a hugely popular destination for US travelers because of the distance.  It is literally across the world.  You can fly through London, Dubai or most major cities in Asia.  From Colombo, Sri Lanka, there are several flights daily as well.  What’s cool is, when you land in Male, you get picked up by your resort in a speed boat.  No cars, crystal clear water.  It truly is paradise.

    WHY GO?  When you visualize an island paradise, this is it.  Frequently featured in Islands and other luxury travel magazines, the Madives is hundreds of small islands and features amazing diving, incredible sea life, crystal clear (and warm) waters, great weather year round and over water bungalows.

    WHAT’S IT GOING TO COST ME?  As I mentioned, the Maldives are a luxury destination.  The creme de la creme.  A trip here is going to cost you some serious coin.  About $500-$1000+ a night on hotel stays and $1,500 on airfare.  BUT, if you have hotel points, there is a Sheraton and W Hotel (Starwood properties) and a few other large hotel brands.

    BEST FOR: Beach lovers, divers, surfers, romantics

    KNOW BEFORE YOU GO  – You are not allowed to bring alcohol into the country, period.  They will confiscate it at the airport, so don’t even try it.
