A honeymoon is a once-in-a-lifetime holiday, so you'll want to make it perfect. While many couples book paradise islands in the Indian Ocean such as the Maldives for their slices of paradise, you don't need to fly half way across the world to find beautiful spots for your dream holiday.
Some of the most beautiful and romantic places in the world can be found in the countries of Europe, which has more than its fair share of cities with beautiful architecture and culture as well as beautiful coastlines and secluded beaches. Italy, Austria, Greece and Malta are perfect for luxurious, romantic holidays (and they're a lot less expensive to travel to too - perfect if you have a budget you're hoping to stick to).
Croatia's Dalmatian coast is also a definite contender when it comes to finding places of sheer beauty at reasonable prices (Brad Pitt fell in love with this region when he visited, and he even decided to invest in a holiday home with Angelina in Istria - so it must be pretty special!). We've picked our ten favourite romantic spots in Europe for honeymooners, all famed for their beauty, tranquility, service and food. Check these out and see if you agree - and don't forget to tell us your top tips for honeymoon destinations in Europe in the comments below!
