Amalfi Coast

Why: When the backdrop for your wedding is a citrus grove that overlooks Italy's jaw-dropping Amalfi Coast, "great wedding pictures" take care of themselves.

Guest activities: The Amalfi Drive is one of the most scenic stretches of Italian coastline, comprised of a winding clifftop road offering dramatic views of the sea. Pay a visit to the ruins of Pompeii; visit the thirteenth-century Black Madonna in Positano; take a boat trip through the Blue Grotto off Capri; visit the seaside village of Sorrento; and walk the ancient, narrow streets of Naples's "Old Spacca Quarter."

Best spots for weddings:

Grand Hotel Ambasciatori (MannielloHotels.it) This hotel was once the home of a well-known fortune teller, which the town believes gives the property good luck. Close to the center of Sorrento, it offers a unique view of the Gulf of Naples and of Mount Vesuvius.

Hotel dei Cavalieri (HotelDeiCavalieri.it) This family-owned hotel has a view of the Gulf of Salerno and is only a 10-minute stroll to the center of Amalfi. Make sure to request a room with a balcony.
