Help with a 10 day itinerary in Italy!

Jump to last reply

My fiance and I are planning our honeymoon for early September in Italy. We've seen a few whirlwind itineraries but with it being my fiance's first trip to Europe, I'm looking for something a bit easier. We looked briefly at a tour company but we're pretty independent travelers and they were quite pricey. I've found a wealth of information on here from different trip reports so I really appreciate it! I've loved hearing everyone's opinion on different locations.

We're thinking of spending the first 5 days in Rome then taking a train to Naples and spending the rest of the time exploring Naples, Pompeii, and the Amalfi Coast. We will have 10 days on the ground excluding the travel days. We're planning to look at Airbnb and other hotel sites as most Marriotts, my preferred brand, weren't centrally located except for one in Rome.

First, are we completely insane for skipping Venice/Florence? I've seen that as a must-do on an Italy trip but I know we'll go back and we don't want to spend too much time traveling.

What is the best (in your opinion of course!) day trip out of Rome? We will go to the Vatican but I was debating if we should do another bus trip to another city.

Are open jaw tickets a must? They were pretty expensive out of Boston (approximately $400 more each). We were planning to take the train to and from Rome.

What is the best city as a "base" on the Amalfi Coast? We were planning to either stay in Naples or spend 2-3 days there and 2 days in another city.

Thank you for all of your help!
