Planning a 3-week honeymoon to London/Paris/Italy in December

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone! I am from Singapore and I'm currently planning for my 3-week honeymoon in December which will span over Christmas and New Year's. As it's our first time to Europe, we are having a lot of questions! We plan to visit London, Paris and Italy but as I have been researching online, I am getting confused. So, just to give you a better idea, my husband and I love to experience places like how the locals do, prefer to deal with less crowds, love cultural experiences, enjoying food and wine, learning about the people's way of life and just taking in the sights and sounds of the country. We greatly appreciate any must-do, must-see, must-try recommendations as well!

Having 23 days for this trip, we were thinking if we can start our trip by doing 5 days in London, then 5 days in Paris, and lastly focus the remaining 13 days on Italy for the rest of our trip. We are open to suggestions as I am not sure if this itinerary will be too rushed, considering it's going to be cold and daylight hours short. I don't mind cutting out London and giving more time to Paris and Italy.

For Italy, we would love to visit Venice, Florence, Tuscany, Rome, Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast. If we have time, it would definitely be lovely to also visit Verona, Pisa, Cinque Terra, Naples, Capri, Sicily. (Is it a good time in December though?) So, here are my questions for you, especially those who had been there in December:

- Is 23 days enough to see Paris and Italy? Or should we just do Italy alone?

- Any of the places we should avoid during that time of the year?

- Where will you recommend for us to spend Christmas and New Year's Eve? I heard the Amalfi Coast is great for NYE with fireworks over the coast and we can see it in Sorrento or Salerno? Where should we stay to watch the celebration as we need to book the accommodation early.

- Due to festive season, we're concerned about transportation as well. So how should we plan our itinerary with regards to having which town/city to make our home base and which to make day trips to? I heard Salerno is great with their transportation line. Cheaper and more convenient than Sorrento.

That's all the chaos going in my head for now! Would love to hear all your suggestions and recommendations! Thank you all in advance! :)
