When it comes to your honeymoon, you definitely want to do it right. This is when you get to enjoy quality time with your significant other, and perhaps, get to know each other even more.
Sure, there are lots of great honeymoon destinations around the world but nothing can compare to the beauty and magnificence of Greece. This country has everything that a newly married couple would want for their honeymoon getaway. Aside from its breathtaking scenery, Greece is known for its delicious food, lovely weather, beautiful beaches, and interesting sights.
For a more enjoyable honeymoon trip in Greece, here are some tips on the best time to visit, where you should stay, and how to save money on your trip.
When Should You Visit?
The best time to visit Greece for your honeymoon is from May to early October. During this time, you’ll avoid the huge crowds of tourists and you’ll enjoy the good weather. And since this is before the peak season, you also get to save on your accommodation and tours. This is also a great time to visit the beach because the weather is great for swimming during this time of the year.
Best Romantic Places to Stay
Although most of the places in Greece are romantic, there are a few locations that couples shouldn’t miss out during their honeymoon.
One of these is the gorgeous island of Santorini. Known for its white-washed buildings surrounded by the deep blue waters of the Aegean Sea, Santorini is no doubt, one of the best places to visit in Greece. If possible, visit the island during fall or spring to enjoy the wonderful weather.
Another romantic place to visit in Greece is Paros, which is less crowded than Santorini. This is a fishing village home to some interesting architectures that open to the beautiful views of the Cycladic Island. The island is very laidback, with plenty of dining options, allowing you and your spouse to relax.
Saving Money on Your Honeymoon in Greece
It’s not a surprise that most couples try to save money on their honeymoon trip. After all, you just had an expensive wedding and you’re about to start a new life with your spouse, which may include buying a new house. Luckily, there are many ways to save money on your honeymoon in Greece.
First, schedule your trip during the low season. Aside from the fact that hotels, flights, and tours are affordable at this time, you can also avoid the huge crowds of tourists. This allows you to have a relaxing honeymoon vacation with your partner.
Another tip is to stay in a less touristy area, such as in the island of Naxos or Paros. The hotels there are cheaper than in Santorini or Mykonos, but these places are only a short trip away from these islands. And when booking your hotel, choose one that will offer extra perks for honeymooners. Try to send an email to inquire if they can offer a discount or freebies to couples on honeymoon.
To save money on food, avoid dining at the touristy places. Instead, find out where the locals eat and have your meal there instead!
