Italian cities

Our verdict:

Just a two-hour flight away, it’s easy to forget just how outrageously romantic the classic Italian cities are. Take in the glory of Rome, the sheer romance of Florence and wander the streets of Siena. Whether you're culture vultures, followers of fashion or simply hopeless romantics, this Italian trilogy delivers.

Recommended tour operator: Kirker Holidays

Italy's sheer romance

Kirker Holidays says

Start your honeymoon in Rome, Italy’s ancient capital city. Take in the serenity of the Forum and the glory of the Colisseum, the Renaissance art and sculptures of the Vatican Museum and the Sistine Chapel, along with the exceptional array of boutiques and shops.  Stay three nights at the charming Hotel D’Inghilaterra, close to the Spanish Steps.

  • Easy to reach
  • Great food and culture
  • Romantic hotels

Transfer by high speed rail to Florence for two nights at the five-star deluxe Helvetia e Bristol, just steps from the Duomo.  It’s small, characterful and beautifully furnished with impeccable Florentine service and a fine restaurant, the Hosteria Bibendum. Explore Florence’s spectacular art and architecture and discover your favourite Florentine trattoria.

On by rail to the medieval centre of Siena, one of Tuscany’s most attractive cities and home to the famous ‘palio’ horse race in July. Spend two nights at the Grand Hotel Continental, arguably one of Italy’s top hotels.  Built in 1600, it still retains the original frescoes. It’s the perfect place to immerse yourselves in Siena’s truly romantic atmosphere.

Kirker’s seven night ‘Italian Trilogy’ costs from £3,380 to £4,520 per couple including flights, first class rail travel, B&B accommodation plus a dinner at the D’Inghilaterra, a lunch at the Hosteria Bibendum, entrance tickets to the Uffizi Gallery and a wine tasting in Siena.
