We will be taking a 14 day escorted tour to Spain, France & Italy. I was thinking about honeymooning in Mexico, since we initially wanted to get married in Mexico, but all the logistics involved with having a Mexican wedding were a turn off for us. My FI thought that Mexico is a trip that we could take anytime. And that our honeymoon should be something we definitely remember as special. He also felt that after a couple of days in Mexico we would be sort of board. I would have been fine kicking my feet up and taking it easy, but I am very excited to be going back to Spain. A Gf and I went to Barcelona & Madrid in 2000, while visiting Madrid we toured a site called Valley of the Fallen. It was breathtaking to me. I told her that I could see having my wedding there it was the most scenic place I've ever been to. So, I am excited to take my new husband to there and taking pictures together. Our honeymoon's itinerary is as follows:
Enjoy 14 nights in Spain, France and Italy. You're never far from the Mediterranean as you travel to Barcelona, the Cote d'Azur, and the Eternal City of Rome.
We will be taking 3 weeks off of work. Our first week will be spent in Vegas preparing for our mansion wedding and then we will fly back to NYC spend a night at home and then fly off to Europe. I don't think I will want to go back to work after being away for so long. I feel so fortunate to be have all the aspects come together that I hoped for for our wedding and honeymoon. My dear FI really wanted it to be as special as it could be for both of us!
Italy is my favorite country in Europe, with France a close second. Je ne parle pas italien, mais je parle francais. I haven't been to the other places you mentioned, but j'aime Nice, Florence and Rome! Florence is my favorite city in Italy. So much incredible art, history and culture! Rome is wonderful, and certainly should not be missed. Nice is also a really lovely place, and the beaches and the views there are magnificent.
Your trip is a photographer's dream, and hearing about it is making me want to go back to Europe!
