Tuscany vs. Portugal

Located along Italy's west coast, Tuscany is known for its lush green hillsides, romantic vineyards and decadent eats -- all qualities which TheKnot.com site editor Anja Winikka says make it a classic honeymoon destination. But thanks to its popularity with tourists, Tuscany is also classically expensive.

For the romance of Tuscany with a much lower price tag try Portugal, another wine-loving country that has year-round travel deals.

Splurge: Tuscany

What you'll pay (airfare, plus 7 nights at a 4-star hotel for two)*: $4,800

Steal: Portugal

What you'll pay (airfare, plus 7 nights at a 4-star hotel for two): $3,000

*Note: Expedia calculated average trip costs using package deals offered from New York City for the week of May 31 through June 7th.
