There are countless reasons to plan a honeymoon to Italy: the incredible food, the rich history and culture, those beautiful coastal towns, world-class wine, and did we mention the food? Based on our Honeymoon Diary submissions, the boot-shaped country always seems to top our readers' list—which is why we wanted to find out which cities are the best for romance. To determine the list, we partnered with the Foursquare city guide app and the check-in app Foursquare Swarm. Of course, there are the obvious choices (Amalfi Coast, anyone?), but a few may surprise you. (Stay tuned for the most romantic spots in France and the Caribbean!)
The lowdown: This charming village is one of the five that makes up Cinque Terre, set on the Italian Riviera coast. The best way to experience the area is to hike from town to town.
Foursquare tip: "It's a super rocky trail to Corniglia, mostly uphill from Vernazza. Make sure to bring supportive shoes." — Christine Wang, Hong Kong
Hotel to book:Le Terrazze B&B is run by two sisters and has three color-themed rooms (green, pink, and blue).
The lowdown: The Tuscan capital is home to some of the world's most cherished artistic treasures—not to mention the iconic Duomo cathedral and Ponte Vecchio.
Foursquare tip: "There's nothing better than the Uffizi Gallery! It's such an exquisite experience. To avoid the queues, book tickets in advance. There are also less people in the morning." — Kamila Shibalova, Czech Republic.
Hotel to book:Hotel Brunelleschi, a 96-room property located in the heart of Florence, is a short walk from the top shopping streets and popular monuments.
The lowdown: It's not every day you come across a modern-day city so full of beautifully maintained ancient ruins.
Foursquare tip: "The Pantheon is my favorite place in all of Rome. Spring for an audio tour to get the full experience, and stop by Raphael's tomb and admire the amazing engineering." — Benjamin Sutch, United Kingdom
Hotel to book: The elegant Hotel Eden, set in the heart of the city, is reopening in early 2017 after a head-to-toe transformation.
