Honeymoon Travels: Rome

Almost a full two months after we left home to go on our honeymoon, I am FINALLY posting about our experience at our fourth and final destination, Rome. Yay, we’re done! ūüėā

We were in Rome for four full days, and we chose to stay at Hotel Abruzzi, which was right across from the Pantheon. And I mean, literally right across – this was our amazing view from the hotel room:

Honeymoon Travels – Venice

I just realized yesterday that we’ve been back from our honeymoon for more than a month and I’m STILL going through my honeymoon blog posts. Since I only¬†post once a week and have been trying to alternate my travel posts with beauty posts, it means I haven’t finished with¬†anything honeymoon-related¬†yet. Hopefully I can get the last one up next week, but in the meantime, today’s blog is our penultimate stop on our honeymoon: Venice.

Venice has always been on my bucket list, but at the same time, I went in with low expectations. A few of our friends who have travelled to Venice said they didn’t really enjoy it, so we weren’t sure what to expect. Based on advice we received, we only stayed in Venice for a day. We left Sorrento in the morning to return to Naples, and from there we flew in to Venice’s Marco Polo Airport, arriving at 5pm.

Honeymoon Travels: Amalfi Coast

Today’s post is the second installment of our honeymoon – this time takes us to the Amalfi Coast, Italy. While¬†my heart always belongs to Paris, I was the most¬†excited for the Amalfi Coast because I was pumped¬†to see the famous views I’ve only ever¬†seen on¬†Instagram and never dreamt I would see in real life. My husband had never heard of the Amalfi Coast before I brought it up as a potential honeymoon locale. I was incredulous – had he never seen photos of the hill with all of the houses on it?! As soon as I showed him photos, he said, “Oh, I’ve seen those before. I didn’t know that was the Amalfi Coast!”

In my head, I thought that the Amalfi Coast would be the most relaxing part of our trip, but in reality it was probably the most chaotic of the four places we visited due to the massive crowds. A coworker had told me that a lot of Italians go down to the coast during the summer, which made perfect sense when we got there because it seemed like the majority of the tourists were either Italian or British.
