Top 10 Exotic Honeymoons Vacations in Europe
Europe is the perfect place to spend time with the person you love. Locations here offer old-world romance, luxurious service, lavish aesthetics, culture and comfort. You could have a romantic week in Paris, relax in the tranquil Greek isles or stay in a centuries-old castle in Scotland.

The romantic city in the world is the ultimate destination for the honeymooning couple. Sip coffee on Paris sidewalks, stroll along the Seine arm in arm, have a kiss under the Eiffel Tower – there’s plenty of cliché things to do here with your loved one.
- Jerez de la Frontera, Spain
Here you can find all the passion of the Andalucian state without the price tag of Seville. There’s a 12th-century fortress for atmosphere, sherry bodegas, famed dancing horses and it’s also where flamenco singing began. Neighborhoods pulse with gypsy guitar and local flamenco clubs have free entry. So enjoy a bit of dancing to spice up your honeymoon.

This is the place for a Greek vacation away from the maddening crowds. There are wild mountains, hot springs, pink flamingoes, ouzo distilleries and fishing boats. And the sapphire colored Aegean is never too far away.

Your honeymoon on this romantic isle off the mainland won’t be spoiled by Mafia worries, trust us. It’s a real jewel for honeymooners with such elegant choices as Taormina where you can breakfast in style with a view overlooking Mt Etna, in romantic towns such as Syracuse or Ragusa or on the magnificent Aeolian Islands where you can stay in a villa, laze on beaches and take sedate island strolls.

There’s nothing more romantic than renting your own villa in the Tuscan countryside and waking up to views of vineyards, olive groves and medieval church spires. The most you’ll have to worry about is what time to get coffee and where to have dinner.

Sail along the gorgeous Dalmatian Coast slipping ashore for wine, food, song and merriment then escape back to the yacht to swim in private bays and utter relaxation.
