Honeymoon in Venice
My wife and I honeymooned in Venice. We stayed 9 days. Everyone told us it would be too long for just Venice, but, um, it's a HONEYMOON. If you're travelling to tour, Venice is a 3-5 day stay, tops. For a honeymoon, it was absolutely perfect to stay there for the entire trip. We did one day at Murano which was very interesting. My wife is Catholic, so we really enjoyed exploring the gorgeous churches all around the city.
We stayed at Palazzo SantAngelo http://www.palazzosantangelo.com/
It wasn't cheap, but it was doable for a special occassion. Our suite had a huge bathroom, king-size bed, and a balcony overlooking the Grand Canal with the Rialto Bridge in view. There is a vaporetto stop literally at the hotel. It's very central and an easy walk to San Marco, Rialto, etc. The food in the hotel was only so-so, which wasn't a big deal since it was Venice. The bar in the hotel had some nice drinks, although the bartender was out sick and his girlfriend/hotel maid was filling in reading the recipes off a menu. She was amenable to my wife and I telling her how to make the drinks, so win-win.
It was a really perfect honeymoon. Like I mentioned, if you're planning on doing touring, Venice isn't a 9 day stay. If you're planning on just relaxing, honeymooning, and would like to explore one remarkable, history-filled city in depth, Venice is great and truly unforgettable.
