It's "peaceful and romantic, " says one of the island owners, Kimberly. "I really wanted them to feel like they had everything they need. The fridge is fully stocked, the finest champagne, fresh fruit platter, high-tech cappuccino machine."

Still, she adds, "The Duke and Duchess are so down to earth. They haven't asked for one thing."

"It's the perfect place for honeymooners, " notes Kimberly of the secluded retreat, where the royal couple can also partake in snorkeling.

....since this is your honeymoon, I highly recommend against renting a car. Stay in one or two locations tops and leave the driving to someone else. Unless you have the perfect partnership, why test it by driving in Italy? Take the train, it's cheap and easy. Now if you were travelling just to experience all that Italy has to offer, sure, rent a car and pack your sense of humor. But for a honeymoon? Eliminate all possible stress matters.
