Italy honeymoon advice: north or south?

Jump to last reply

Hi fodors folks! My fiancé and I have decided on Italy for our June/July honeymoon for 3-4 weeks.

Originally we were set on sicily, Rome and Tuscany, but now I've been curious about puglia, Umbria and some less-visited areas. I have been to Florence, Siena and Venice but never south of there. My fiancé has never been to italy at all. Rome and Florence are a must on this trip, at least for a few days of museums. Other than that I just want to relax and take in as much of the local culture and food and wine as possible. I guess we just want some insider advice about what areas will best fit what we want. I keep going back and forth between traveling around that whole time (would see more things, but soak less in) or just renting an apartment in some village for the entire time and eating delicious food and practicing our italian. Everywhere in italy looks so amazing that I want to see it all...but then again when you try to see too much, you don't really see anything at all and you end up exhausted. Any suggestions? Should/could we visit sicily, puglia, Rome, Umbria and Tuscany? Or best to cut one or a couple of places out of the trip?

Here is some info about what we are looking for:

We want to go for as long as possible, which means spending less $ per day.
We are undecided about having a car..seems expensive but maybe much easier to have one for getting around. (Or maybe a hassle having one?)
We have done a lot of traveling and living abroad so up for adventure.
We want delicious, local food and wine, small towns (except for Rome, Florence) scenery, maybe some beaches, and less touristy areas.
We are learning italian so going to places where they speak little English is more exciting than intimidating.

Thanks in advance!!
