Two Week Honeymoon in Italy

Jump to last reply

My fiance and I are planning our two week honeymoon in Italy for August 2014 (I know, not the best time of year to travel, but he's a teacher so it was the only time we could get married). This is my first trip outside the US, while he has been to Rome before. He is a wine lover, so incorporating a tour of at least some of Italy's vineyards are a must. I'd like to see the major sites, but also don't want to spend our honeymoon fighting hordes of tourists so am open to any suggestions more off the beaten path.

To maximize our time, we would probably fly into/out of different airports. We've talked about visiting all or some combination of the following areas, but are open to other suggestions:
-Venice
-Florence
-Tuscany
-Cinque Terre (or another coastal area)
-Rome

We would love some suggestions of how to arrange our itinerary, how long to stay in each city given our two week time frame, and the best way to travel between cities (train vs car). Suggestions of where we might stay are also appreciated-I think we'd prefer B&B's or even private apartments over hotels.

Thank you!
