First-timers to Europe, Albert and Kristen made the popular (and great) choice of spending their honeymoon touring around Italy. Read all about their trip and check out their gorgeous photos below:
When and where did you honeymoon?
Italy – Venice, Florence, Rome, and Sorrento [from the] end of September to early October 2011.
How long was your trip?
How did you decide on your honeymoon destination(s)?
It was somewhere neither of us had ever been, and had both always wanted to go. Plus we love to eat and drink wine, so duh. :)
The best part about our honeymoon was…
The food and wine! but really we saw some amazing history too.
If I knew then what I know now, I’d change…
I might say that we would have spent a day less in Venice and a day more in Rome. Albert would say less time in Florence, [but] I’d disagree on that.
How much planning did you do in advance?
Minimal to moderate-we used a travel agent to book flights and hotels. We booked trains from city to city and a Vatican tour before. Everything else was chosen the day we saw it. Good ole’ Frommers Guide, we’d just wake up and say, “what do we want to see today?”
What was your biggest honeymoon splurge?
A private cooking class in Florence, so amazing! Just us and this little Italian lady in her kitchen.
Where do you want to go on your next big trip?
Paris & Amsterdam or Australia. Maybe Germany and Austria? So many places to get to!
