Tuscany Honeymoon

Jump to last reply

Hello! I am hoping to get some help finalizing my itinerary for my Honeymoon in Tuscany! My fiance and I have never been to Italy but have always wanted to go- weve even started learning the language! We are traveling from Sept 1-Sept 17th. So far I have a general itinerary but am hoping to get some help! We have three musts for the trip: 1. Venice 2. Beach 3. Tuscany country side. Below is my general itinerary:

Day 1: Arrive in Venice in afternoon
Day 2: Venice
Day 3: Venice
Day 4: Beach (Maremma? Elba island? Cinque Terre?)
Day 5: Beach
Day 6: Beach
Day 7: Beach
Day 8: Beach
Day 9: Tuscany (Keep in one spot for next 5 days and do local day trips or maybe split 2/3 between two locations?)
Day 10: tuscany
Day 11: Tuscany
Day 12: Tuscany
Day 13: Tuscany
Day 15: Florence
Day 16: Florence
Day 17- Depart early for home

My budget is $12,000-$14,000 for everything for the both of us. We are interested in romance and slow pace. I definitely do not want to spend half my honeymoon traveling. I didnt add Rome as I HOPE to come back one day and do Rome/Amalfi/Capri another time. My questions are:

1. Any recommendations for a beach area? I have been researching Elba island and it really is beautiful with a mix of white sandy beach and small towns built into cliffs. Ive also looked into the Maremma area as I could stay near the ocean and still be near all the wineries and i found some hot springs nearby as well. Anyone been to both and have a recommendations? Places to stay?

2. If I did Elba island for 5 days and Tuscany country for another 5 would you pick one base for all 5 days? Or maybe splint 3 in countryside and 2 in walled in city to really get the culture of the small town? Ive heard wonderful things about all the small ancient towns but Siena, Cortona, and Lucca are high on my to see list. Any other musts??? Recommendations on accomodations??

3. Any other recommendations?

Thank you in advance for any answers! Planning the honeymoon has been overwhelming on top of planning a wedding! I pondered a travel agent but I want to stay at some B&Bs and small local hotels to really get the feel of the area so I am nervous to try an agent. Any advice is appreciated! Thank you!
