The newlyweds were spotted eating out and stopping for photos with fans in Bologna, Florence and Verona.

The last, an undeniably romantic city — Romeo and Juliet was set here — has been a low-key getaway spot for stars who want to forgo the country’s more obvious A-list destinations like Capri, Lake Como and the Amalfi Coast. (Leonardo DiCaprio and Madonna are both rumored to have homes in the area.)

Julia Roberts paid a visit in September to celebrate her new campaign for the European hosiery brand Calzedonia and later attended the company’s annual runway “Leg Show,” where she called her first visit to the city “beautiful and perfect.”

Katie Holmes and model Irina Shayk both toured Casa de Giulietta, home to Juliet’s balcony and a popular tourist attraction, in October. The stars were in town for Intimissimi on Ice, an annual event at Arena of Verona that combines ice skating and opera.

Shayk, who welcomed daughter Lea De Seine with boyfriend Bradley Cooper in April, brought her mom as her guest. “Ma and I in Verona,” she captioned an Instagram shot from the event.

Looking to vacation in Italy like the stars? Be sure to hit Florence, where Anna Camp and Skylar Astin honeymooned; Lake Como, a favorite destination of John Legend and Chrissy Teigen (who also married there), or go for a countryside-crossing road trip like Vanessa Hudgens and boyfriend Austin Butler.
