10 Most Popular Honeymoon Spots in the World



Romance, culture, history -- and let's not forget about great food and wine -- can be had when you honeymoon in France. The country offers a little bit of everything. You can spend your first few days as a married couple lounging on the beaches of Normandy or strolling down the Avenue des Champs-Élysées in Paris by day and feasting on fine cuisine by night. You can marvel at historic architecture and the works of famous artists, or let the beauty of the rural countryside spark romance. And the best part is that you really can choose to do it all, since traveling around France is pretty simple. France has one of the best transportation networks in the world, so you can rent a car and find your own way from town to town, hop a train and enjoy the ride (locally or cross-country) or even rely on taxis and buses to get from place to place. More adventurous couples can rent mopeds or bicycles for zipping around town.

Because France is an international center of culture, you can even plan your visit around special events. For instance, if you time it right, you can visit the Cannes Film Festival in May, experience the grape harvests in wine country in September or root for your favorite cyclist in the Tour de France in July.
