Another way to do things inexpensively is rending apartments.  We rented an apartment in the city center very reasonably (I think it was around 69 Euros a night).

I’m soooo jealous.  I know that I’ll never get a two week honeymoon or any other kind of trip.  Someday, I will get to Italy though!!

*insert jealousy here*  I wanted to go sooooo bad but decided not to in July cause of crowds and weather.  Congrats on getting everything booked for such a deal!

we’re going to Italy too! We leave in 2 weeks – I’m going to explode while sitting here, waiting… I’ve already made up our “to pack” list, strategized our baggage situation, washed and pre-packed everything I can between now and then… there’s nothing left to do!

We’re flying to Venice, staying at Hotel Alle Guglie for 2 days, getting on a Norwegian cruise around Greece, and then coming back to Venice for 3 more days. We booked the Laconda La Herion for the entire stay in Venice, but Hotels.com overbooked, so they bumped us up to the Alle Guglie for the first part of the trip for free, and gave us a $100 hotels.com gift cert.

I’m looking at the Laconda La Corte website and it is GORGEOUS! You’re going to have an amazing time! ๐Ÿ™‚

Congratulations!!  Not that all of Italy isn’t fabulous, but the Amalfi Coast is unbelievable.  Can’t wait to go back!

We are planning on going to Italy too! Only not until next year (after our wedding of course!)

Right not we are 2/3 the way to paying for the trip with Skymiles earned for free… which is super exciting! I will definately be checking out those hotels you listed!

 

Thanks for sharing!

@msgraphics: Oh wow. Be sure to post some photos when you get back. I fear if I went to Italy I’d come back a few kilos heavier as I love the food.

YAY! Good job!!! I highly believe like you that it’s always cheaper to do all the legwork yourself rather than going through a travel agent. ๐Ÿ™‚

When we were in Rome we stayed at a one bedroom apartment w.a terrace view of the Vatican for 83 Euros (at time of booking roughly $107) a night. It was fabulous to have our own space, it was near a open market, train station and bus station. And the landlord was a certified Vatican Tour Guide so we were able to skip all the lines at the Vatican!

In Cinque Terre we stayed at this wonderful studio apartment in Riomaggiore with a view of the sea for 65 Euro ($84)/night.

A European honeymoon is more affordable than many think if you are willing to forego the whole five star hotel deal. And for us we were more interested in staying at B&B, hostels and apartments during our Honeymoon than hotels anyway.

Have so much fun!!!! I still remember my first cup of cappuccino at a Italian Cafe fondly. And my first gelato! Yum!

P.S. My use of walking around in NYC definitely helped a ton in Rome!!!

I LOVED Florence, totally a city that I can live in. Don’t forget to go see David and the other David! ๐Ÿ˜‰ There’s a huge sign at the entrance to the museum that tells you you can go to another location nearby to by tickets so that you can skip the long lines.
