Luxury Honeymoons in July
If you are looking to honeymoon in July, the Mediterranean is perhaps at its best, before parts become a little too hot for some in August. Couples can find romance in Italy’s cities, and the endless beaches across the Med.
If a tropical desert island is what you are looking for, many parts of south east Asia are perfect in July, or, if you want natural spectacles, head to Africa. The great migration is full flow, with wildebeest, zebras and Thomson’s gazelle making their annual arrival in the luscious grasslands of the Massai Mara, where the big five have been waiting for months.
In South America, Peru is one of the places you could explore in July, from the awe-inspiring lost city of the Incas, Machu Picchu, to the Colca Canyon and the Amazon rainforest. Or for another kind of jaw-dropping mountain scenery, the Himalaya in India is another great choice.
