Running away to get married in Italy!

Jump to last reply

Hello everyone, I am glad to have found a place where great advice seems to be so plentiful,

My fiance and I have decided to quit planing the wedding and get married over in Italy.

The only solid date we have is Oct 22, 2014 - Day of the wedding. Everything else is up for grabs. We will fly out Oct 15 afternoon and return Oct 31.

The wedding is at a church in San Gimignano.

We know we want to see The Vatican and other sites in Rome and Cinque Terra.

I'm thinking about something like this:

Milan (16,17)
Train to Cinque Terra (18,19)
Train? to Florence, rental car to San G(20,21,22,23,24)
Train Florence to Rome(25,26,27,28,29,30,31)
Fly out

I like this idea better:

Rome(16,17,18,19)
Train to Florence, rental to San G (20,21,22,23,24)
Train to Milan (25) or straight to Cinque Terra
Train to Cinque Terra (26,27, 28)
Milan to Paris (overnight train)
Paris (29,30,31)
Fly out

I'm the first to admit we just did this on a whim and we have a lot to learn. All thoughts are appreciated and if there are great places to see around Rome or elsewhere please let us know!

We love beautiful landscapes and enjoy art and history, but aren't in love with it such as others may be.

Thanks you!
