My husband and I took the most amazing honeymoon to Italy and France after we got married in 2015. We had been out of the country once before on a cruise to the Bahamas in 2013, but neither of us had ever taken a big overseas trip. At times I was more excited to plan our honeymoon than I was the wedding! However, it wasn’t easy because I was a complete novice when it came to European travel and found it challenging to find a one stop shop that would tell me where we should go and how long we should stay there. I spent hours on travel forums and blogs and eventually pieced it together, but it took a few months.
I’m sharing our European Honeymoon itinerary today with the hopes that it can help others benefit from my copious amount of research! We chose Rome, Florence, Venice, and Paris as our travel stops because I was able to research so many amazing things to do in each. I also learned from various travel forums that Venice is on the smaller side and we could get away with spending a little less time there to ensure we had enough time in Paris. We traveled between each city via train, including an overnight train from Venice to Paris.
