We have partially answered this question in our introduction.

Yes, totally. Venice is just a perfect city to live your honeymoon.

Whenever you come here, you will find a welcoming city, full of opportunities to enjoy relaxing moments but thrilling adventures also.

It all depends on you and on the things you like as a couple (just check our guide on this regard!).

When is the best time to come to Venice for your honeymoon

best time to enjoy honeymoon venice -

The best time to visit highly depends on your preferences, but here are a few things to consider.

  • If you love warm weather and outdoor activities, then summer (June to August) is the perfect time for you. During this time, the temperature in Venice is warm, and the city comes alive with outdoor festivals and street performers. You can enjoy gelato on a gondola ride, picnic in the lush parks, and take in the sunset over the water. On the other hand, however, summer in Venice may be very tough due to the hot temperatures.
  • If you're after a romantic and quiet escape, instead, spring (April to May) or autumn (September to October) may be a better fit. During these months, the crowds are smaller, and you'll be able to enjoy a more peaceful Venice with cooler weather.

Regardless of when you visit, however, Venice will show you its magical beauty any time of the year.

Venice honeymoon: where to stay

venice honeymoon hotels -

If you are organizing your Venice honeymoon, first of all you should choose the hotel where to stay.

Of course, the city has plenty of choices, but you want to know what is the best choice for you.

In fact, there are so many hotels that are hosted inside magnificent old Venetian palaces, where you can spend the most dreamy nights.

There are hotels that not only face the water, but face the water of the Grand Canal, so that you have such iconic visions anytime you look outside your window. Additionally, if you have a great budget, why don't you think to overnight on a private island? In the Venetian lagoon you can do that as well.

Of course, Venice is the perfect place also for honeymooners who want something with a more cozy and familiar atmosphere: the city is full of beautiful B&B where you can enjoy the typical Venetian daily life.

Instead of selecting a hotel next to Piazza San Marco, choose something in the Castello district or Cannaregio or Dorsoduro. Not only would you pay less for your stay, but you will enjoy a very unique atmosphere.
