Sounds like a beautiful honeymoon!

Specifically on flights, I think you still have plenty of time to book flights. Generally you can find the best deals 3-4 months prior your desired travel date.If possible keep your arrival and departure dates semi flex.I notice your looking to fly out on a Monday, Tuesdays are generally cheaper.

I just posted a thread on our Honeymoon Itinerary and answered another posters question re: airfare to Europe, perhaps it might offer some insight to you?

As to the travel agent vs self booking, I feel that’s a personal decision for you & your Fiance. What kind of planner/traveler are you?Your itinerary sounds pretty cut and dry that if I were you I would book everything myself. Explore options with travel agents, travelzoo, self booking transportation, etc.

If I remember correctly a lot of the travel between those cities can be done via train.

Trenitalia is the site for train travel in Italy. Booking your tickets in advance will save you some $$$. Tickets are available X months in advance so for November they might not be available for purchase yet. Or is that EuroRail??


It sounds like a lot of the cities you are visiting are in the Amalfi Coast. Cinque Terre is another option. Amalfi Coast and Cinque Terre are often compared to one another with CT being the cheaper option. However, I would def love to see the Amalfi Coast one day. 🙂

We took a day trip to Florence and I absolutely fell in love with the city! One of the few cities we visited that I felt I could live in. Don’t forget to go see David!

Here are some links re: Italy from some of my fave budget Europe travel sites:

I have been to Rome and the Amalfi Coast.  Both are amazing.  I loved Rome but could have spent the entire time on the Amalfi Coast with no problem.  If you go, visit Pompeii first, then the National Archealogical Museum in Naples immediately afterwards.  That’s where all the artifacts from Pompeii are housed–really fascinating.  FYI–we did Capri, Pompeii and the museum in one day.  We probably would have spent more time on Capri, but the weather was crappy that day.

You could probably live without a travel agent, but someone who specializes in Italy would be really helpful with the right hotels, tour companies, etc.  If you don’t have a licnesed tour guide to get you through Pompeii, the Vatican, the National Archeological Museum, etc.  you miss a lot. 

I usually book my airfare on late on Tuesday nights or very early Wednesday morning.  That’s when they seem to be the cheapest.
