15 Days in Italy - Venice & Rome

Jump to last reply

My fiance and I will be honeymooning in Italy in January 2018. We chose Italy because this January we went to Rome for 10 days and fell in love with the City. We crammed a lot in, but at the same time nowhere near enough. We will be going back time and time again.

Our honeymoon will be for 15 days.

We both love the idea of Venice so we will be flying into Venice from the UK. We want to see St Mark's, Doge's palace, Murano/Burano/St Michele's and the Insane Asylum. We were then debating on a few days on Florence, one in Assisi, before Rome. However, we are wondering if this is a silly idea. In terms of our interests, they lie firmly in history. We are not huge art fans (we both appreciate art in churches but we don't really do many galleries). One of the main draws of Florence is taking a day trip to Luca or Sienna or Pisa. Are we best missing Florence off this trip and considering Tuscany for a later trip? (we would definitely do Tuscany some other time anyway, and another for the lakes). What about Assisi? It seems harder to go from Venice to Assisi than Florence to Assisi. Are we best off saving Assisi for another trip too?

I guess I am asking for advice from people who are seasoned Italy travelers and who also love Rome. Is Florence similar? Is it mostly for art lovers? We briefly considered Naples but I haven't read many great things about the place.

Things we adore about Rome: layer upon layer of history everywhere you look, the juxtaposition between modern life and ancient Rome, the splendor of the Vatican, the macabre catacombs. In short, Rome got into our blood. We love planning everything ourselves, taking our time to explore hidden nooks and crannies, and only having ourselves to please. We don't mind guided tours but we don't like to stick to ye olde stereotypical holidays.

I know we will love a trip back there to see things we didn't see the first time. And Venice will be amazing too. But are we selling it short by not sticking Florence and Assisi in there too?

Any advice would be appreciated.
