Honeymoon photos: Italy

My dear readers, Alex and I just got home from our two-week honeymoon to Italy and Greece, and I'd love to share a few photos, if you'd like to see...
Our first stop was Positano, a teeny seaside town on the Amalfi Coast, the most magnificent and charming place in the world. Even though it's a popular destination, it still feels like a authentic small town.
We were lucky enough to stay for four days at the Villa Fiorentino, a 6th-century home owned by a warm and wonderful Italian family. Our honeymoon suite had an outdoor shower and a little pool overlooking the town!
The bedroom was fancy, too. We secretly pretended that we lived there.
I'm more of a doggy-paddler than a swimmer, but the water in Positano is so salty that it keeps you afloat. We spent each afternoon floating on our backs in the clear blue water, gazing up at the town and pinching ourselves. One day, we also rented a giant pool float, and it felt like we were drifting in the sea on a double bed, which was funny and awesome.
At night, we'd head up to Montepertuso, the little town above Positano, for dinner; the restaurants would send a driver to pick you up (that's typical but feels so swanky!). We ate an especially incredible meal one night of pasta with shrimp and lobster, and a starter of grilled mozzarella on lemon leaves, a local specialty. Seinfeld says the secret ingredient to anything delicious is cinnamon, but I'd say it's lemon!
One afternoon, we took a boat trip to Capri and met cute couples from Australia, Africa, Russia and Hong Kong. It felt great to be out on the water.
During our boat trip, Alex took another little boat into the Blue Grotto, where the reflected sunlight makes the water glow blue. Gorgeous, right?
But the catch? To get inside the cave, you have to wait for the waves to subside, and then everyone in the boat has to lie down, so the boat can squeeze through a tiny hole in the rock (can you see it?). Freaky!
Being a tried-and-true claustrophobe, I was happy to watch my brave husband from a safe distance.
On our final night, on my dad's recommendation, we dressed up and went for cocktails at the fanciest hotel in town, Le Sireneuse. The waitress brought us chewy homemade potato chips, and Alex got a Negroni (his new favorite drink; now he orders it everywhere we go) and I got a crisp white wine. The sun was setting, and we felt sunkissed and wonderful--it was one of those perfect life moments.
Then we said goodbye to our beloved Positano and traveled north to Rome--a surprisingly easy jump up on the fast train--and spent three days exploring the city. Alex, of course, was obsessed with the history and spent hours at the Colosseum and in the Forum.
We wandered down twisty streets and dipped our hands in cool fountains. My favorite afternoon was spent visiting the Villa Borghese with its stunning art collection of a (now long dead) jovial cardinal and his family. We took the audio tour, which was hilariously irreverent and described the scandals behind each painting (the myths! the murders! socially inappropriate nudes of famous people!).
At night, we'd walk to to local restaurants for gut-busting pastas. One evening, Alex took a Sartorialist-inspired photo of me on the cobblestone streets outside our hotel. (I know, my flip flops would never cut it on his real blog!) We were staying at Maria Rosa Guesthouse with airy bedrooms rented out by a lovely French woman.
For dinner, Alex quickly become obsessed with carbonara and couldn't resist ordering it wherever we went. I loved cacio e pepe, a simple but rich pasta with Pecorino Romana cheese and tons of pepper. On our last night, we finally splurged and got dessert, too, and it was fabulous--a housemade tiramisu, which came in a glass with espresso at the bottom and thick hot chocolate on top.
Overall, our Italy trip was absolutely a dream come true, and we felt so grateful and lucky. Thank you so much for sharing our excitement! (Greece is up next!) xoxo

we stayed in northern italy for our honeymoon at the end of june/beginning of july. I'm so jealous of the southwest coast of Italy...maybe next time!

Isn't Italy so delicious and romantic! We drank wine and laughed and looked at each other....we couldn't believe we were in italy and married!

If you haven't already, you must, must must visit Venice. It was both of our favorite places of all time (not just the honeymoon!)

Thanks for sharing!

Lola said...

Beautiful pics! I am sure you didn't want to leave!

The Wanderers' Daughter said...

Gorgeous, Joanna!

I have heard of the blue grotto and it fascinates. I"m with Alex on the history of Rome and the Colosseum. I could not get enough of the history aspect when I was there, and came home with a ridiculous box of books on the history and architecture of the forum and Colosseum.

My parents honeymooned in Greece as well...it sounded awfully nice, though by force we ourselves had to honeymoon in China (rather late), because we were in the arduous process of adopting our daughter from Jiangsu. Amazing in its own right!

erica said...

oh my goodness, that looks amazing! what a wonderful way to start off a marriage!

Kate said...

I'm so happy you had a lovely time. Those pictures looked magical, and you and alex are such a beautiful couple (inside and out!).

2 By Design said...

Positano is truly one of my favorite places on the planet! I was there for the first time as a teenager with MY PARENTS, so not quite the romantic getaway you experienced, but amazing nonetheless. I'm hoping to get my husband there in the next year or so, and now thanks to you, I know exactly where we'll stay! Thank you so much for sharing your gorgeous photos, and seriously? I loved your flip flops :)

Leigh said...

What a beautiful place, Thank you so much for sharing your sweet moments. I will have to make a note of these places if I ever to get to visit OMG fabulousness!!
I also am with you about the cave, it is beyond beautiful, but I am sooooo claustrophobic, would have to watch from afar..
I wish you both many more memories as these..

Jennifer Feisty Hood Lum said...

After reading that entry twice, because it was just so wonderful and I wanted to make the experience last, even though it was yours and not mine, I have decided to add Greece and Italy to my list of places to go... along with the rest of the world.

I am happy for you. Looks like you definitely had a mindblowingly lovely time. (Yes, I know those two words do not go well together.. mindblowingly lovely. I'm not even sure if mindblowingly exists, but, it does not!)

Heather said...

Wow, amazing trip -- way to kick off the marriage right! And what a cute couple. :)

Joanna...YOu're giving me goose bumps. I mentioned before that my husband and I spent a magical 3 days in Positano and you've brought all of those happy, happy memories back. Your recap is exactly as I remember it. I always tell people that it's indescribable. You have to experience Positano to truly appreciate the wonder of it all. So happy for you both!

I'm convinced Italy was made for honeymooners! Lovely photos, you look every bit the blushing bride in them. Congratulations again to you both.

Also, the postings on, Secrets to a Happy Marriage was a brilliant concept. The stories were inspiring and personally I think would make a wonderful wedding book!
