Located cliffside, the property features 56 rooms with private balconies and breathtaking views; setting the scene for a most intimate escape. Hotel Caesar Augustus is sure to impress with their Royal Honeymoon Getaway (new for 2008) which includes a romantic “Caprese” serenade performed below your suite, gourmet dinner served at the cliff-top terrace restaurant, champagne and flowers en suite and much more. Package starts at three nights for Euro 2532.00.The island’s only Relais & Chateaux address is also ready to romance newlyweds with new open-air features including two outdoor spa treatment rooms – perfect for couple’s massages, as well as a new al fresco fitness area, Turkish bath and relaxation area surrounded by natural rocks. For cultural honeymooners: As a vibrant and cosmopolitan city, Milan is rich in art, history, and culture, making it the perfect destination for honeymooners looking for a well-rounded experience. With luxury accommodations like the Dorchester Collection’s Hotel Principe di Savoia Milano, guests receive incredible service in a beautiful, 5-star hotel. The Principe di Savoia recognizes their guests’ desire to experience the culture that Milan has to offer and so they accommodate their guests by offering packages that cater to whatever you desire may be – shopping, art, or even a day trip to visit nearby Lake Como! So whether you’re looking to admire The Duomo, take in an opera at Teatro alla Scala, shop at Galleria Vittorio Emmanuele or wander through the Pinacoteca of Brera to see masterpieces by some of the leading Italian artists, Milan  and Hotel Principe di Savoia Milano can make your honeymoon a memorable one! For nature-loving honeymooners: Take your honeymoon to new heights in the Dolomites with Hotel & Spa Rosa Alpina.   The Dolomites are a great honeymoon location off the beaten path from the typical crowded cities of Italy, an easy side trip from Venice, and full of activities in both winter and summer.   Newlyweds can explore the mountains on a myriad of hiking and mountain biking trails, climb challenging cliffs, or even play a round of high altitude golf.   After all that activity, relax with dinner at the two Michelin starred restaurant, or a couples massage at the original Daniela Steiner Beauty Spa.   Couples wanting extra privacy can have a private picnic or spend the night at the hotel’s exclusive mountain chalet at 6,600 feet, with panoramic mountain views.   Rosa Alpina is a Relais & Chateaux property, owned by the same family for three generations, in the tiny, postcard perfect village of San Cassiano.
