honeymoon in Italy-8 nights-2 or 3cities

my fiancee and I are planning our honeymoon, a trip to Europe, and we were interested in Italy, will there be time to see 3 cities--Rome, Florence and Venice, or should we just do 1 or 2 cities, which do you recommend.

Fifi, With only 8 days I would try to do only Rome and Florence with a day trip from Florence to Siena. That will give you a good orientation to the wonders of Italia and pique your appetite for your inevitable return. <BR>

Fifi, <BR>You have plenty of time to do all three. Bob is right in that there is so much to do, you really want to spend a lot of time in Rome. You must spend a few days in Florence. It's perfect for a honeymoon romance. If you go all the way to Italy you have to see Venice. It is by far the most tourist overrun city, but it's gorgeous. A day or two will do in Venice. Start in Rome, spend most of your time there, then take the train NE to the the other towns.

Technically you do have time to see all three cities, BUT you'd be doing some serious hustle and schleping from one end of the country to the other. <BR>After all the purpose of this trip is a honeymoon and after all the wedding hoopla, maybe you'd like some time to decompress ??? If I'm wrong and you've travelled together before and enjoy a busy schedule, then go for the trio. <BR> <BR>All that being said, I'd STRONGLY suggest you make a choice between a Rome - Florence combo (Bob the Navigator is on course, here) OR you could do a Venice - Florence combo. <BR> <BR>In order to make your decision, you may want to weigh several factors: <BR> -- time of year for travel; <BR> -- are you art lovers? museum goers?; <BR> -- want a city that has some nightlife? or a more low-key atmosphere; <BR> -- are you outdoorsy? maybe prefer region where you could do some hiking or would you rather be able to access the Mediterranean?

I agree, you should figure out how much museum-going you want to do, that's really what will take up time in these cities. You may even find one day in Venice sufficient for touritsty things. Good luck.
