Puglia VS Sicily

Jump to last reply

I'm trying to find anyone who has spent time in both Sicily and Puglia to get a better idea of which area my fiance and I should spend most of our honeymoon. I posted earlier about Italy and I appreciate all the super great replies! (some of you I wanted to write to but can't figure out how to message a particular poster). Some people said they needed to know more info so here goes:
Deciding between Puglia and Sicily for the bulk of our 3-week June honeymoon. We also want to spend a few days in Rome and a week in Florence area so that leaves us with about 10 days to spend relaxing in the South... We want great food and great wine first and foremost. Also, we are on a bit of a budget, plus I enjoy more local eateries anyway. We just want to relax, maybe sit on a couple terraces eating and drinking wine with lovely sea breezes, practice our Italiano and enjoy each other and the local culture. We plan to visit sites&museums in Florence and Rome so I while would like to do some sight-seeing while in the south (a temple or two), mostly we just want to chill. Sicily seems great but with only 10 days I worry we will be rushed, and it seems a bit more crowded/touristy than the Puglia region. Seems the wine is great in both. Although the cannoli/sweets in Sicily are alluring!

Any advice from folks who have similar interests and ave been to both?

We fly into Paris June 15 (so will catch a flight to Sicily, Rome or Bari, wherever we decide to start) and out of Milan July 10 (so will work our way north)
Thanks for any advice!!
