Mediterranean views, private 16th century villas and countryside estates.

It’s hard to choose a more beautiful destination for your honeymoon than Italy. And the country offers such a variety of stays to suit every personality—are you dreaming about water views, designer digs, lush vineyards (or maybe all of the above?). Look no further, here are 10 of our top choices for the most beautiful, romantic and luxurious Airbnb getaways to get you started.

AMALFI COAST

The Cliffside Villa

It’s an Airbnb you have to see to believe. L’Incanto della Costiera is wedged up in the cliffs along the Amalfi Coast, just around the corner from Amalfi proper. The views are obviously breathtaking, but you’ll also be charmed by the heritage architecture features carved out of the rock—and the open terraces under flowers and grape vines.

LAKE COMO

The Boat & Breakfast

It doesn’t get more waterfront than this! This unique B&B is moored in the exclusive Lake Como marina, right within walking distance of a pool and restaurants. The host even hand-picks a special buffet breakfast for guests.

FLORENCE

Luxe Tuscan Dream Stay

The ultra-luxe Villa Lone is set amongst rolling hills of vineyards and olive trees in the Tuscan countryside, and yet it’s still in close proximity to downtown Florence. You could take your whole wedding party or do a joint honeymoon with friends (it sleeps up to 10 between a main house and two guesthouses) and marries old world and new. Historic buildings are the backdrop, but you still get an infinity pool (with unreal views), a barbecue grill, pizza oven, chef’s kitchen inside, alfresco dining and a fireplace.

VENICE

The Unforgettable Domed Chapel

MILAN

High Style in the City

This fashion-forward Italian city is all about the designer flat. The Bosco Verticale apartment building is dripping with vertical gardens, trees and dangling ivy—it’s like a vertical forest. And inside this one-bedroom Airbnb (plus patio) everything is ultra-modern, well-designed and inviting.

POSITANO

You Live Outside Now

The sunkissed front terrace (that looks out over the sea) at  Sontuosa Villa is larger than a two-bedroom apartment and is outfitted with seating for morning cups of tea or grand dinner parties with your new honeymoon friends under the sunset.

CINQUE TERRE

Private Garden Above the Sea

This Agave 302 Airbnb up in the colourful apartment-covered hills of Cinque Terre has amazing views of both the city and water. And the best part is that this private suite has its own garden area, complete with lounge chairs, poufs and an outdoor hot tub, so you and your sweetheart can sip wine and have a relaxing soak at the same time.

BOLOGNA

Your Private Italian Palace

With its crown mouldings, frescoed walls, chandeliers and luxe drapery, you’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time (and into a palace) at this Airbnb in the heart of Bologna. (Plus it overlooks a large garden—think of those morning sunrises!) So what are you waiting for?
