October Honeymoon in Italy - North or South?

Jump to last reply

My fiance and I have never been to Italy and I have been doing a lot of research but everything seems so amazing it's hard to narrow down destinations. We have 12 days and would mostly we using train but can rent a car too (which we would do if we go to Tuscany area). I think it would be great do some things that aren't just typical tourist spots so we can be included in the culture. I heard Cinque Terre is overrun with tourists now for example but I'm hoping that in October it would be less crowded in general.

If we want to either go norther Italy including Cinque Terre or go south and do Amalfi coast area plus Capri but having trouble deciding which would be better. Other places we talked about going (ALL over the map):
-Bologna (finace is big foodie - wanted to do a cooking class or food tour and train seems to go through there anyway)
-Florence/Tuscany (could choose another wine region - obviously heard of the one the most)
-Perugia for a Chocolate festival starting Oct 14 when we will be in Italy (fun to go to?)
-Venice
-Rome (probably skip b/c won't have time to really do it right)
-Mt. Etna and Taormina
-Lake Como or Lake Garda

We are adventurous, athletic, and love the outdoors and nature (want to have at least one good hike on the trip), fiance is probably mostly excited about the food and he loves to cook, we both love good wine, beer and music. We are big soccer fans (sorry Europeans...futbol) but schedules are not out yet so we hoping to get lucky. It doesn't matter what team really we just want the experience!

Any suggestions for how to narrow down an itinerary? What places are we missing based on our interests? I'm so excited because I know no matter what we can't go wrong but certainly could use some advice.
