Honeymoon in Italy

Jump to last reply

First of all thanks for reading this and any help you can offer.

I'm trying to plan a honeymoon in Italy for the start of July. We're both aged around 30 and are looking for a combination of relaxation and culture. We need to fly in on a Monday evening and need to be in Sorento for a wedding the following Friday (e.g. 11 days later). Whilst at the wedding we'll effectively cover off seeing Sorento and also head out to Capri for the day.

The first thing to say is that we're not interested in visiting Rome on this occasion. Whilst it's an amazing city, it kind of screws up most itineries, is pretty hot/busy in July and also is a place that we can visit relatively easily as we are based in Europe most of the time. We'll be back there in September seperately in fact.

The rough Itinery I was pulling together was:

Mon (eve) - Friday: Glying into Milan and then heading straight to the Italian Lakes.
Saturday and Sunday: Florence
Monday travel down to Naples and then through to Ravello on the Monday.
Tuesday/Wednesday: Ravello and Positano - basing ourselves at one of them.
Thursday: Vesuvius arriving into Sorento in the evening.

A couple of places that I don't have included but am aware are pretty amazing are - Tuscany, Marenello, Portofino and Cinque Terre (to just scratch the surface). If anyone can suggest if it's worth fitting these in and if so where and how I'd be really grateful!

I suppose questions I've got are:

1.) I've only ever been to Milan, Rome and the Amalfi coast before so it's the lakes/florence part I'm struggling with the most. Does this seem sensible or are there any major things I've overlooked? Would you allocate more/less time to places listed above?
2.) Can anyone make any suggestions for places to stay in the Lakes.
3.) Is it better to drive or train between the Lakes and Florence - would this allow us to take in somewhere like Portofino/Cinque Terre perhaps?
4.) Anywhere else people would suggest in preference to this?
5.) Can anyone recommend any hotels/restaurants for the trip?

The budget for the honeymoon is relatively flexible and was probably looking to spend an average of about EUR350/night for accomodation although I'm more than happy to blow that out if there's somewhere really special or unique.

Any other suggestions would be most welcome as well.

Thanks again!!
