Thinking about honeymooning in Greece? Here are some incredible things to do and see when you’re there!
Go to Athens
Before you unwind from the hustle and bustle of your wedding, be sure to make a stop to Athens and visit the Parthenon. Most people agree that you only need one day to make your rounds, but you won’t want to miss it! Nothing beats the surreal awe of standing in front of the ancient ruins that you learned about in your textbooks. You may even decide to stay the night to enjoy a sunset dinner overlooking Acropolis lit up in the background.
Visit a Few Islands
Santorini is a must for honeymooners. In fact, did you know that Santorini is known for being one of the most popular islands in the world because of its beautiful beaches, ancient cities, incredible cuisine, and active volcano? We also recommend staying in Crete or another smaller island for a less-touristy and more authentic Greek honeymoon experience.
Treat Your Taste Buds
It’s a given that you’ll be trying the food in Greece, but instead of going for your “usual,” why not give something else a try? Afterall, Mediterranean food happens to be one of the most fresh and tasty cuisines in the world! Greece is known for their seafood, feta, olives, tomatoes, and olive oil, just to name a few. Don’t regret tasting everything this beautiful country has to offer!
Swim in the Bay of Ammoundi
The Bay of Ammoundi is located below the cliffs below Oia, about 250 steps below, to be exact! Here, you can jump off the rocks into the Aegean Sea and gaze out at the colorful towns that surround you above. Be sure to stop at one of the local taverns for some lunch with a view, too!
Hike on the Cliffs of Santorini
Take a hike along Caldera of Santorini for the most breathtaking views of Greece. Gaze out into the coast lined with colorful flowers and villages, while capturing moments together in front of the quaint villages. This is a great chance to bond with your new husband or wife!

This year, Romance Travel Group’s Cathy Westereng had the pleasure to tour the Tuscany region in Italy with one of our favorite Italian partners. “We walked Renaissance squares, made pasta from scratch and tasted wine at centuries-old vineyards! And the best part? I never once felt like a tourist,” says Cathy.
“One of my favorite memories from this trip, I have to say, was a wine tasting near Pienza, Italy. Pienza is located in the untouched Val d’Orcia region – a scenic valley about 2 hours from Florence. First, we toured the historic vineyard -- walking among the grape vines. Next, we enjoyed a private tasting with the winery owner. Even better, this epic tasting was inside the cellar where the wine ages! I was in heaven.”
What made this experience even more special for Cathy was the chance to do it with a local guide. She was so thrilled to share this gorgeous area that so few Americans know about. “As our day came to a close, I glanced out over the Tuscan wine country -- the sun dipping behind the hills -- and said under my breath: "This is the real Italy."
