I’ve been back for a while, but haven’t had a chance to post any photos from our Honeymoon! We had a really wonderful time despite the cold and rainy weather. Everyone we met told us that it was unseasonably cold and rainy!! We chose the end of May/early June because we wanted warm weather. It was romantic at times and kind of a bummer at others. But overall we had a really great time.
Our first stop was Rome. We were a bit delayed due to the airline waiting for a few passengers, so we missed our train, but we had a fun time taking a train, another train, a bus and then walking to our hotel at 11:45pm. A really nice man asked us if we needed a ride the rest of the way and we took him up on his offer. (would probably never do that in SF!) We stayed at a really great Villa called Villa Grazioli. I definitely recommend it!
Our next stop was Florence! We stayed at a sweet refurbished farm house called Hotel Tenuta il Burchio in the town of Burchio. It’s a really small village with one taxi driver, so if you take the train from Rome, be sure to call ahead and arrange a car. Because we didn’t and guess what we did? We walked to the hotel! Strange coincidence, another lovely citizen picked us up and took us to the hotel on our walk! We must’ve looked like tourists needing help. Our room was in the dining room, which was really weird, but their dinners were delicious and the staff were amazing. Here’s a bit of our stay:
After Florence we headed out to Capri! Taxi, train, train, boat, taxi, walk! We stayed at Hotel Il Girasole in Anacapri. While the views are stunning, the hotel was kind of a dud. Everyone there was amazing and sweet and willing to help, but the room walls are extremely thin. I could hear our neighbor using his toilet. No thanks! By this point we were starting to get cabin fever due to all of the rain and all I wanted to do was swim in the beautiful blue water, but it rained a lot and when the sun came out, it wasn’t hot enough. Bummer.
It was gorgeous!
Our last stop was to a really great Hill Town in Umbria called Orvietto. A coworker of my husbands is Italian and goes there every summer, so he gave us a great recommendation on a hotel (They only speak Italian, so he wrote them a letter and called for us!). It had to be one of my favorite spots. Gorgeous town, lots of yummy food and nice people. I highly recommend this town to all of my readers! From Capri we took a car, ferry, train, train, funicular and bus… then we walked. I think next time we travel we’re going to get a car.
and thennnnnn We flew to Copenhagen and did a 19 hour tour on foot. I want to go back for at least a week. It is such a clean and beautiful city. It made me really happy.
It was 3 weeks of really amazing memories with my incredible husband. I know this was a lot of photos and not much of the experiences we had together or what we did, but I’m keeping most of that close to the cuff. Hope you enjoyed these photos.
