Romantic Italy: plan your dream Honeymoon in Tuscany!

Few places fit the dream honeymoon like Tuscany. Located in the heart of Italy, this region offers a true love story with a hint of everything that makes our country great: gourmet food and wine, medieval hilltop towns perched on vines and olive groves and charming towns packed with Renaissance art.

Honeymoon ideas in Tuscany

For centuries, Tuscany has amazed tourists from all over the world with the beauty of its natural landscapes and its art cities: Florence, Siena and Pisa are just some of the most famous cities for a romantic honeymoon in Italy. But there is much more! Tuscany never fails to surprise.

A honeymoon in Tuscany offers a perfect scenario for a couple in love: but where in Tuscany should you spend your honeymoon?

Less can truly be more when it comes to planning your honeymoon in Tuscany. This is one of Italy’s biggest regions, so if you are running out of time it’s best to focus your attention on one specific part of it or on experiences rather than trying to do it all.

There are countless things to do in Tuscany, from the classic to the offbeat–here are some of the most romantic options that should definitely make your honeymoon itinerary in Tuscany.

Explore Florence

Cradle of the Renaissance, Florence is a romantic gem just waiting to be explored.

You can admire the city from Piazzale Michelangelo or from the top of Giotto’s Bell Tower. You can steal a kiss from your new bride in the Boboli Gardens, taste gourmet food and renowned wines all. You can contemplate iconic works of art such as Michelangelo’s David and get lost hand in hand in picturesque streets, monuments and exclusive artisan shops on Ponte Vecchio.

The romance of medieval villages

The small medieval villages of Tuscany are considered the most romantic in Italy.

Choosing the most characteristic to visit is not easy task because everyone has their own identity. Traveling along the country roads lined with cypress trees by car, bicycle or Vespa between Florence and Siena, it will be possible to visit the most beautiful and characteristic villages of the Chianti region: From Gaiole in Chianti to San Gimignano and Monteriggioni, Montepulciano, Volterra and Cortona, every glimpse and landscape will make your Honeymoon the most romantic experience ever!

Culinary delights

Indulging in Tuscan cuisine is one of the most unforgettable experiences of your honeymoon, whether you choose a typical family-run tavern or a star-lit candlelit dinner in a Renaissance palace, a picnic among the vines, or a delicious meal in a farmhouse.

It is about tasting the riches of the earth: porcini mushrooms, chestnuts, truffles and superb wines produced in Chianti and Montepulciano. Among the specialties not to be missed are the Florentine steak (T bone steak), the Cinta Senese (Tuscan pork) and the Castagnaccio (chestnut flour cake). The Montalcino extra virgin olive oil and the Tuscan pecorino are also excellent.

If you want to live a more engaging experience instead, you can participate in the hunt for white truffles in the woods of San Miniato near Lucca or take tastings and romantic walks among the vines in a wine shop or cellar.

The Tuscan Coast

When you think of Tuscany, you mainly imagine its countryside and cities of art.

In fact, its coastline can compete with the best in Italy, with long sandy beaches that take refuge in the Ligurian sea. Some of the most beautiful beaches and coves are hidden in the southern Maremma region, in particular on the enchanting small island of Elba and on the Monte Argentario peninsula. Not to mention the beautiful and luxurious beaches of Versilia and Forte dei Marmi. Places of pure charm and exclusive that will make your honeymoon even more special!

Tuscan hot springs and Spa

There are several very popular outdoor hot springs which can offer a unique experience of Tuscany. From the Lunigiana up north to the Val d’Orcia in the south, you have many choices as to places where to relax and pamper yourself, deeply enjoying a relaxing honeymoon any time of the year!

Between the provinces of Siena and Grosseto, the natural thermal waters of Saturnia and Petriolo offer a variety of choices for enjoying total relax wellness: free hot thermal pools amidst nature as well as luxurious and modern spa centers offering all kind of treatments.

Set in south of Siena is Bagno Vignoni and it is one of the oldest and most popular thermal locations of the region. Despite it’s very small size, the Roman period pool with hot springs situated in the center of the main square and surrounded by a landscape of rare beauty makes the whole place charming and enchanting.

Located at a short distance from Bagno Vignoni, there’s another thermal location that is worth a visit, Bagni San Filippo, offering two different types of thermal waters: sulfurous, gushing out from Acqua Bianca rocks, and wonderful waters of the White Whale pools, both in the outdoors.
