“Few honeymooners will want to spend all day every day racing from monument to museum. However, there’s something incredibly romantic about exploring cultural treasures together as part of your honeymoon experience.
If time is short, a city may be the answer - the obvious choices are Venice and Paris but are best avoided if one of you has already been there with a previous amour! I love the fascinating city of Tunis and highly recommend a trilogy of Spanish cities: Seville, Cordoba and Granada.
For an all-out orgy of cultural romance, a private tour of Northern India and Rajasthan is hard to beat as is heavenly Bhutan or an Egyptian odyssey combining a colonial-style Dahabiyya sail boat on the Nile with a stay in Cairo.
Particularly if one of you is less inclined to tick off the cultural boxes, opt for a two-centre honeymoon combining a culturally-rich city such as Istanbul with a boutique hotel on Turkey’s glorious Lycian coast or perhaps Sri Lanka, chock full of cultural gems, combined with the “beachtastic” Maldives, a short flight away.”
