ArielleSays Wedding & Honeymoon Experiences
1. Take a private boat tour to Capri
My favorite activity from the entire 2-week trip to Italy was our bachelorette boat ride to Capri. We used Viator to book two private boats (one for Jason’s party and one for mine), and it was incredible. They picked us up at the port of Positano and it lasted about 8 hours. We stopped by some grottos, rocked out to some jams, danced, and took a million photos. Then our parties met up for lunch on land.
Top Arielle tip: I suggest booking at least a month in advance to secure your spot (maybe even sooner for peak season).

2. Sample pizza and limoncello at a Sorrento farm
If someone asked me what was the most unexpectedly fun part of my wedding week, I’d have to say this limoncello and pizza making class. We drove out to Sorrento and had these little cars bring us up a hill to a house where they make mozzarella cheese. There, we got to taste a bunch of olive oil (I bought three—basil, truffle, and oregano) and even caught an incredible sunset. We then went back down the hill to a restaurant and made our own pizzas and had shots of limoncello.

3. Go on a private Murano and Burano boat tour
If you go to Venice, visiting Burano and Murano is an absolute must-do. They’re little islands off the coast of Venezia, and they both have their own charms. We took a water taxi to the islands (which is much faster than public transport), and our guide told us so much about the city and islands. We got to Burano first, which is known for its colored homes and lace, and actually stumbled upon a woman making lace in her home. We then went to Murano, which is known for glass-blowing, and I found a chandelier that I plan to buy when I’m rich.

4. Cruise down the Grand Canal on a gondola
On our honeymoon, we took a gondola ride down the canals of Venice aboard a traditional gondola with your very own gondolier. It was so romantic, floating along narrow waterways and hidden passages, admiring the beauty of one of Italy's most magical cities. We both loved getting to pass beneath centuries-old bridges and take in famous attractions such as St. Marks' Bell Tower and San Giorgio Island. We actually ended up doing the gondola ride twice because we loved it so much!
