Could the couple walking toward me be honeymooners? The sun was blinding me so I couldn't tell but I had a feeling they probably were.
According to Modern Bride magazine, the five most popular honeymoon cities are Paris, Venice, Honolulu, San Francisco and Sydney. In other similar surveys as well, Venice is almost always one of the top travel destinations for honeymooners. It comes as no surprise because Venice is such a romantic city no other places can be easily a match.
For an ultimate honeymoon experience in Venice, how about taking the Simplon Orient Express luxury train from London all the way to Venice and staying at the splendid Hotel Cipriani? A one-way train ticket $3,120 per person (overnight). A suite (the cheapest) with a lagoon view $3,300 per night. (Sigh…) Venice can also be very expensive.
