I used to live in Italy, and it is, in my opinion, an amazing destination year-round. However, depending on when your wedding is, and if you are planning on going to Rome (it sounds like you are), I would caution scheduling around Easter week. Easter Week in Rome is very hectic and crowded, as it attracts many pilgrims for the holiday. It’s also the beginning of tourist season in Italy, so prices go up, sometimes significantly.

There are also many places to go in Italy. It doesn’t sound like you are that interested in the “seaside towns.” You could easily spend a good vacation in Northern Italy (for example, Milan and Venice), Tuscany, OR Rome. So, it depends on what you are looking for. Italy is a great place to go for relaxing, sitting in a cafe, drinking espresso or vino, and also sight-seeing.

I have never been to Italy in April, but I originally come from that part of the world :). I have to agree with your friend, there is a possibility the weather might not be great! However, you could get some good deals as the holiday season would start in May/June. It should be fine for sightseeing and drinking wine 🙂 but you wouldn’t be able to swim and sunbathe!

@HappyMer:  I’ve been to Venice five or six times, and I think it’s amazing. I think it’s just as romantic as “they” say. There is an aspect of overdone tourism, but I think that’s common in many tourist destinations. Venice, in my opinion, is special, and romantic, and beautiful. The Peggy Guggenheim museum is my favorite museum in the world- mostly modern art and is a good change of pace from all the Renaissance stuff you’ll be seeing. 

The Amalfi Coast is amazing, although you may want to check the weather that time of the year- I haven’t been that early in the spring. I’m a big fan of Cinque Terre, even though it’s VERY touristy. 

I’m also a big fan of the smaller Tuscan towns- in particular, Siena and Lucca- I think Lucca is also a very romantic place, and easy to get to from Florence.

But, yes, Italy, in general, in my opinion, is a GREAT destination. I’ve even been to Venice on a cold, rainy, dreary weekend in November and had an amazing time.
