Honeymoon in Italy

Jump to last reply

My fiance and I are planning our honeymoon in Italy for May 2012. There is so much that we want to see and do and we also are trying to balance both of our interests (mine=culture, art, shopping, beach....his=hiking, mountains, scenery). We have a starter itenirary, but I'm not sure if we're trying to do too much. I'd also love suggestions on hotels too.

Fly into Rome
stay in Rome 2 nights

train / ferry to Amalfi Coast (I've heard we want to stay in Positano)
stay 4 nights in Positano

train to Florence
either rent a car and drive through Tuscany and stay in Tuscany
or stay in Florence and day trip to Tuscany and other towns
stay 2-3 nights in Tuscany area

train or drive to Lake Como area **Would love hotel suggestions with great views from rooms ***
stay 2 nights around Lake Como and visit the Alps (I've hear it's just a short ferry ride or drive to some beautiful towns at the base of the Alps).

We want to stay in nice places without spending $1000 a night!!! We're trying to decide between some boutique style hotels (I"m thinking some of the mom and pop hotels may give us special treatment...honeymoon suite...etc. since they are smaller) and some of the really luxurious ones.

Any thoughts will be sooooo helpful! Thanks everyone!
