I am getting married in May and we are going to Italy on our honeymoon! Has anyone been there and have any advice? We are going for 10-14 days. We like seeing museums and architecture but we mostly like being outdoors/wine tasting/hiking/relaxing! Any input would be great! We are flying from LAX probably into Venice and leaving out of Rom (not confirmed yet though).

My cousin went to the Amalfi Coast for a honeymoon. Are you interested in seeing cities only? I think it’s kinda country side and very scenic. They even rented a car for long drives. They only stayed there for a week and didn’t go anywhere else. They only had one week vacation from work. But they really liked it.

Venice is amazing! Yes, it is a bit touresty ut it is worth going on a gondola ride, doing a tour of St. Mark’s Basilica, wandering into random churches, just wandering in general. Eat as far away as possible from tourist zones, the quality of food will be better, generally speaking and more economical. This doesn’t help much- I have been there a few times, stayed in a tin shack at a camp ground outside the city (do not recommend), a studio appartment run by the university (recommend if you are abackpacking student) and we stayed in a great hoet, it was so pretty, the room was small but elegant. I can’t remember the name!
You can take the train or rent a car to go to Tuscany and Rome. Both are easy. You can buy train tickets at the station and there are English options. Car rentals are easy too and driving is simple, especially if you drive a stick as most cars will not be automatic. Rome is another great place to simply wander around. Go to the Trevi fountain, turn your back to it and flip in a coin. If you land in the fountain then you will eventually make it back to Rome. Atleast that is what a long ago friend told me, he was born and raised in Rome.

Hey! We did 14 days in Italy and lovedddd it! Here was itinerary and it worked out perfectly for us…
4 days Paris -> flew to Venice (stayed 1 night) that’s all we needed, train to Florence (Must go!) spent 2 nights here -> train to Rome ->3 nights here ->train to Naples and then taxi to the Almalfi Coast and 4 nights there.
You should ABSOLUTELY make it to the Almalfi Coast (Southern Italy) which includes Positano, Capri, Sorrento, Ravello and Almalfi. It’s gorgeous, relaxing and a total honeymoon desitination!
Look into Hotel Covo De Saraceni in Positano!

We got married in May this year and went to Paris, Italy and Greece in 3 weeks!
We flew from Paris to Venice and spent 2 days there which was great. Highly recommend a gondola ride at sunset! We then took the train to Florenice which was my favourite city. We only spent a night there and I 100% wish we spent more time there. Just wander the city and you’ll be amazed… then we took the train to Pisa for an afternoon and saw the Leaning Tower which was awesome!
Took the train from there to Rome for 4 nights, we used airbnb and by far was my favourite place we stayed – only 5 minute walk to the Colosseum and we stayed in or own pirate castle like apartment with a hot tub!
We did Vatican, Roman Forum (awesome), Colosseum, Spanish Steps, Trevi fountain (underconstruction unfortunately) and a few more. if you do vatican and colosseum, book a tour in advance! otherwise the line would be about 3-4 hours.
On the last day, we booked a bus tour to Pompeii and got to climb Mt. Vesuvius- if there’s anything you do, 100% see this! This was our favourite thing on our honeymoon we did. The view from Mt. Vesuvius top was breathtaking and the ruins of Pompeii are so haunting.

Go to Florence!! I’ve never been so in love with a city. There’s tons of sightseeing, beautiful pictures to be taken, amazing food, and the entire city is walkable. If you go, look into the “Florence for Foodies” tour–it was my favorite experience of an entire 10 day European vacation and I usually hate tours 🙂
