Posted by Ruth Anne (27/02/2015)
Planning for a wedding is a wonderful, yet stressful time in a couple’s life, and once the big day is over, newlyweds will no doubt want to wind down and continue celebrating together on their honeymoon. A honeymoon is the perfect time to relax away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and celebrate your commitment to one another, which are just some of the reasons why it’s so important to pick the perfect destination.
The stunning region of Tuscany is a dream location for recently wed couples who want to spend their honeymoon soaking up sun and culture during a relaxing break. With so much to do and see, and so many amazingly relaxing activities, we’ve come up with a few suggestions of what loved-up couples can do on their honeymoon.
Watch the SunsetChoose a villa with a breathtaking view and watch the sunset at least once on your honeymoon. As darkness descends, couples can see stunning views of olive groves and Chianti valleys from their accommodation. If hiring a car, then spend a few evenings driving on the winding roads to the Tuscan coast in search of the perfect sunset.
Chill by the PoolA private pool, like the ones at some of our Tuscan villas, is perfect for couples on their honeymoon. Sunbathing and taking dips in the garden pool means that you can spent time alone with your spouse without being disturbed by others - perfect for couples after some post-wedding isolation.
Head to a SpaWith natural hot springs found throughout the Tuscan countryside, there are plenty of spas that you can visit for some pampering treatment. Most spa’s pool waters are around 37 degree Celsius and are naturally high in minerals, making them the perfect temperatures for relaxation.
Head to TownMost Tuscan towns and cities are wonderfully romantic locations. With streets perfectly suited for ambling around, and plenty of piazzas to sit and watch the world go by, couples on their honeymoon should spend at least one day in one of Tuscany’s historic cities. If wanting to avoid the busy crowds, then avoid Florence, and go to smaller settlements like Siena or Lucca.
See the Golden TreeHead to Lucignano, near Arezzo, to see The Golden Tree of Lucignano. Also known as the Tree of Love, the shrine took 121 years to make and stands at 2.60 meters. Completed in 1471, the shrine is said to bring good luck to lovers according to local tradition and is considered a symbol of eternal love. Take a day trip to see the Golden Tree and repeat your wedding vows, or speak from the heart in front of the tree to bring good luck and a happy marriage.
