When it comes to planning a honeymoon, romance is the order of the day. With its cobbled backstreets, fairytale castles, and iconic landmarks, Europe is a veritable treasure trove of romantic moments, so it is no wonder that so many couples take their honeymoons here. But with so many ancient cities and magnificent vistas to explore, it can be tricky knowing which destination to pick, which is why we have come up with a list of some of the most romantic places in Europe in which to spend your honeymoon.

Santorini, Greece

Gleaming white buildings, sparkling seas, and stunning sunsets mean that Santorini is the perfect backdrop for romance. The beautiful black volcanic sand contrasts with the whitewashed villages to create truly spectacular views that will stay in your memory forever. Take a champagne breakfast in your honeymoon suite overlooking the caldera before spending a luxurious day in an infinity pool with views of the sea. The beauty of Santorini is utterly alluring and makes it one of the most romantic places on earth.


Malta is famous for its rich culture, fascinating history, and gorgeous buildings, so it is ideal for couples looking to do some sightseeing on their honeymoon. Explore the legendary capital of Valetta with its delightful restaurants and captivating past, or head to the walled city of Mdina to navigate the maze of cobbled alleyways and historic sites. Mdina was also the original setting for Game of Thrones’ King’s Landing so there are plenty of incredible photo opportunities to be had here. There are loads more activities in Malta, such as snorkelling, diving, cruising, shopping, and island-hopping, but you can’t beat sunshine-filled days of relaxing on the beach.

Venice, Italy

Picture leaving your wedding ceremony and flying to the city of lovers, the most romantic place on earth – Venice! With beautiful scenery, stunning architecture, and rich culture, Venice is one of the best places to take a romantic vacation. Enjoy magnificent excursions by booking a traditional boat trip to Murano Island, treat yourself to a five-star stay at the Aqua Palace, or take a gondola to visit the oldest casino in the world – the Casino di Venezia, which possesses a mix of classic elegance and modern style.

Prague, Czech Republic

Prague has become a bustling hotspot for tourism in the last few years, but don’t let that put you off. Its picturesque cityscape looks like something from a fairy tale, with statue-lined stone bridges and an impressive hilltop castle at the centre. Until now the charms of Prague have been a well-kept secret, but in the last few years, it has quickly become appealing to anyone looking for awe-inspiring experiences without breaking the bank. However, its newfound popularity means that it won’t be on the cheap side for long – so if this is one of your bucket list honeymoon destinations then it would be advisable to go sooner rather than later!

Mallorca, Spain

The largest collection of islands off the east coast of Spain, Mallorca is home to the same aquamarine waters that lap the white sand shores of the Ibiza coast. The landscape is filled with natural treasures, such as the Serra de Tramuntana mountain range and the swathes of almond, carob, and olive groves. The capital of Palma features beautiful palaces, quaint town squares, charming restaurants, and winding streets which are a delight to explore. Mallorca is perfect for couples looking for good food, rich culture, and a party or two in the warmer months!

Whether you’re looking for a historical adventure or a laid-back party atmosphere, the honeymoon destinations of Europe have got you covered. From the sparkling white villages of Santorini and the olive groves of Mallorca to the fairy tale castles of Prague and the romantic gondolas of Venice, the only problem you will have is choosing which destination to visit. In fact, wouldn’t it be fabulous to visit them all?!
