Travel Experts' Honeymoon Itineraries: Italy

Continued (page 2 of 2)

  • Travel by train to Venice and check into the Hotel Danieli, formerly a 14th-century palace— the rooms are gorgeous and so Italian, with details like silk-covered walls and Murano glass chandeliers.... Wander narrow side streets that snake along the canals, and take time to pop in and out of shops and cafés along the way.... Enjoy a private tour (booked through Italian Dream Incorporated Travel) of Venice's most famous islands, Murano, Burano, and Torcello. In Murano, tour the Museo del Vetro for a century-by- century tour of the history of glassmaking. Burano is a fisherman's island known for its brightly colored houses and lace-making school. In Torcello, the last stop, see the island's beautiful cathedral, with its magnificent mosaics.... Stay in Torcello and enjoy dinner in the garden at Locanda Cipriani. On your second day here, be sure to see La Fenice opera house and the modern art at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection, located in the heiress's former home.... End the day with a private gondola ride on the canals— sure, it's touristy, but a visit to Venice is simply not complete without a ride in a gondola.... Sample traditional Venetian recipes at Ristorante Antico Pignolo, a hidden gem just a few yards off Piazza San Marco—the seafood risotto here is superb! Finish your trip the way café society would have back in the day: with the signature bellini at the world-famous Harry's Bar.
