non-touristy in Umbria or Tuscany?

Jump to last reply

Hi! So my fiance and I have the first 1/2 of our honeymoon planned and need some assistance with part 2. June19-July11 is our frame

Let me preface this with: I know we are moving around a lot, but my fiance has never been to Italy and he wants to see a few areas so we can decide where we want to spend a whole 2 weeks next time.

We are spending the first 9 days in Puglia with a rental car and then heading over to the Cilento coast and staying 3 nights somewhere there before we return our car in Salerno (anyone like Salerno in July or super crowded/touristy?). After we return the car we will take a train to Rome and spend 4 nights. After that, we have about 6 days before we have to be in Milan for our flight home (used miles so no choice on airport). Initially we were going to spend those days in Florence, but now I am feeling stressed about being in another huge, crowded city after Rome and I like the idea of chilling in a small Tuscan or Umbrian village and doing perhaps a day trip to Florence or passing through Florence for one night on our way to Milan (fiance really wants to go to Florence). I found a cute little town, Bettona, but you need a car, and that seems the case for every small village. So, does anyone have a suggestion for a small quaint non-touristy village reachable by public transit? Or should we stay in perhaps Perugia or Bologna or Parma which would not be small but an easy train to/from Florence? We could potentially rent another car in Umbria for 4-5 days (if there is a town that we just have to visit) but that's another expense....the easiest thing would of course be to stay in Florence the whole time but I am not a Renaissance art fanatic (plus I've been to Florence) and really I just want to relax in a tiny village square, soak up the culture, and eat local delicious food and wine. I feel that it would also be easy to stay in a village near Florence, but I would be concerned those would be touristy.

Thanks in advance x a million!
