2 Week(ish) Italian Honeymoon Itinerary Help - First Time Europe Travelers

Jump to last reply

We will be getting married in June of 2014 and taking our Italian honeymoon the first two weeks in August. We would like to hit the big 3 (Venice, Florence, Rome) along with a beach stop somewhere. We are just at the beginning stages of our planning and I wanted to get a good idea of an itinerary. Here's what I have in mind (note - we have a wedding to attend in Malmo, Sweden at the end of the trip):

Aug 2 - Fly from US
Aug 3 - Arrive in Venice
Aug 4 - Venice
Aug 5 - Venice
Aug 6 - Train from Venice to Florence
Aug 7 - Florence
Aug 8 - Florence
Aug 9 - Travel from Florence to Beach
Aug 10 - Beach
Aug 11 - Beach
Aug 12 - Travel from Beach to Rome
Aug 13 - Rome
Aug 14 - Rome
Aug 15 - Fly from Rome to Copenhagen
Aug 16 - Wedding in Malmo, Sweden
Aug 17 - Fly back to US from CPH

We are very interested in visiting Venice (for romance), Florence (for Tuscany wine country), Rome (its Rome!), and spend some time on one of the many picturesque beaches Italy has to offer. Like I said, we are just at the beginning stages of planning so daily activities and adventures, hotels, restaurants, sights, etc. will be figured out later but right now I'm really interested in everyone thoughts on a few main things:

- WHAT BEACH? We want a relaxing place with beautiful scenery (not really into hiking or water sports - just a nice place to relax in the middle of our trip). We definitely want to stay somewhere in the Riviera region that wouldn't be too out of the way from Florence to Rome (Livorno? Viareggio? Cinque Terre? Portofino?) HELP!
- Is this itinerary doable in this amount of time? Will we be shorting any of the destinations to an extreme degree? Should we shift more time from one place to another?
- Travel logistics to/from places, within places - trains, planes, automobiles?

Thanks guys, we really appreciate all the help!
