Top Honeymoon Destinations in the Mediterranean

Tuscany

Tuscany, in central Italy, is home to several beautiful cities and landscapes. It’s also regarded as the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance, so Tuscany is an ideal destination for any couple who wants to mix relaxation with culture! Wander the ancient streets of Florence, taste wine in the vineyards of Chianti, snap a photo next to the Leaning Tower of Pisa…

Corsica

The French island of Corsica has 200 beaches and 1000km of coastline, so is a beach-lover’s paradise! There are many other activities too - take a boat to the Scandola nature reserve, visit Ajaccio (the birthplace of Napoléon Bonaparte!) or explore the fortress town of Bonifacio.

Malta

The tiny archipelago of Malta is full of beautiful destinations. Just off the coast of Italy, Malta is an ancient country with so much to do and see! Swim in the Blue Lagoon, take a ferry to the stunning island of Gozo or learn to SCUBA dive in the safe, clear waters. What’s more, Malta is reachable from Southend Airport!
