Italy Honeymoon - Naples/Tuscany/Amalfi Coast/Sicily

Hi there!

My fiancee and I are planning to spend our 2 week honeymoon in Italy, this September. We are flying from the UK.

There are so many places we'd like to see and I thought maybe we could see the best of the above - Naples (maybe visit Capri for one night), Tuscany, the Amalfi Caost and Sicily.

Can anyone tell me whether this is realistic and, if so, recommend a route or itinerary? I thought maybe it would be better to do it in reverse order, starting in Sicily.

Any tips will be hugely appreciated!!

Is it possible? Yes. Is it a good trip or a good honeymoon? No. You really don't have enough time to do justice to all of your desired destinations. If you are flying from the UK, you won't have jet lag so that helps.

Tuscany is worth a week, Sicily is worth 2 weeks. Add Naples and the Amalfi Coast and you have a 4 week honeymoon. I would choose either Tuscany, Naples and the Amalfi Coast or Naples, Capri and Sicily.

Have fun planning and happy honeymoon.

Your idea seems fine, if a little tight.
It would be a lot easier if you drop Sicily OR Tuscany.

Here's one possible 14 night plan:

Fly UK to Sicily
3 nights in Sicily
fly to Naples
3 nights Naples (with a day trip to Pompeii?)
ferry to Capri
1 night Capri
ferry to Positano, Amalfi or another town on coast
3 nights on Amalfi coast
some kind of ferry/bus/train combo back to Naples
1 night in Naples
Train to Tuscany (where?)
3 nights in Tuscany
Fly home from nearest airport that works for you.

Drop Sicily and you can have a good trip. Save Sicily for when you have at least 10 days to enjoy.
