Honeymoon Trip to Rome, Florence, Venice & Paris - Advice on Sights

Jump to last reply

My fiance and I are tying the knot next weekend. Being that we are in our late thirties and hope to start a family shortly afterwards, our honeymoon is a "bucket list" item - a trip to italy and Paris. While I have been to Europe once before, I have not been to any of these cities; this will be my fiance's first trip to Europe. My fiance has spent a lot of time researching stays. However, neither one of us have had an opportune time to thoroughly research recommended sights at each of these stops. We both love interesting views, wine, steak, Italian food-red sauces...nothing too frue frue. We plan on making it to some of the cathedrals, but not too many as we would love to take in as many sights as possible as we are not sure we will ever be able to do this again.

I know we plan on doing a wine tour in Florence. We are also considering a cabaret in Paris. Any other suggestions?

The following is our itinerary. Your recommendations on interesting sights to include at our spots will be greatly appreciated! Many thanks in advance!

5/1: Leave USA to Rome
Rome: 4 Days, 3 Nights -> Travel via train to Florence
Florence: 3.5 Days, 3 Nights -> Travel via train to Venice
Venice: 3.5 Days, 3 Nights -> Travel via small plane to Paris
Paris: 5.5 Days, 5 Nights -> Fly to USA 5/15

    Congratulations on your marriage!

    Out of curiosity, would it be an option to take one of your Florence days and move it to Rome? One of your days in Rome will be really jet lagged, plus I imagine you'll be really tired from the wedding and everything leading up to it. There's more to see in Rome than in Florence, I think.

    It's hard to know what to recommend in terms of sightseeing, since your main interests you listed involve views (available everywhere, most of the time!) and food. :) Most people do the Vatican one day in Rome (St Peter's + Vatican Museums), often the Colosseum/Forum on another day. I loved the Galleria Borghese, but you need to reserve those tickets in advance.

    Venice - the main attraction is the city itself, I think. I really enjoyed going to the island of Burano as well (Murano I'd skip, personally).

    Paris - are you into museums at all? I'm not always, but I loved the ones in Paris, specifically the Musee d'Orsay and the Pompidou. I'm not usually into modern art museums, but loved the Pompidou. Check out Paris Walks for great walking tours.
