Northern Italy Honeymoon- Alps and Italian Favorites

Jump to last reply

My fiance and I are working on nailing down our itinerary for our Honeymoon (aka adventuremoon). :) I've read several guidebooks and forums, but we're still having trouble nailing down something that suits us. We will have 11 nights from late May to early June to travel. My fiance wants to send as much time in the mountains as possible. I want to make sure we hit some towns that will give us the true flavor of Italy too. We want to focus our time on hiking and exploring charming towns rather than visiting museums. We will mostly rely on public transportation. We plan to fly in and out of Milan. Below is our current itinerary. I'm worried that it is too rushed and that we won't be able to enjoy enough time in the Alps.

Venice- 2 nights
Castelrotto- 2 nights
Varenna- 2 nights
Aosta- 2 night
Cinque Terre- 2 nights (Vernazza or Manarola)
Milan- 1 night (just enough to catch our plane back)

I'm thinking of removing Varenna (The Lakes) and adding one night to Castelrotto (The Dolomites) and Cinque Terre.

This will be our first trip to Europe, so any advice is much appreciated! Thank you so much for your time and insights!
