you might want to first run this intinerary by a marriage counselor. quite hectic don't you think?

i would also suggest that you spend more than 3 days engaged in your "romantic time" if in fact this is your honeymoon.

have fun.

Yes, it is hectic, but I still like it.
You are hitting some of my favs. You will have fun. I am still not sure why 2 locations at the CT, but that may not matter. For San Gim., try La Cisterna or Bel Soggiorno in town. Please report back--we want to hear it all.

Drink lots of vernaccia, hike the area around San Gim., to include a stop for lunch at the Hotel Pescille 3 miles south of town. And, get to Volterra for half a day. If you had a car I would say go to the Abbey Mt. Oliveto Maggiore and then lunch in Montalcino at boccon divino. Hard to go wrong.

Stay at only one place in CT - train is only 6 minutes from one town to the next, and you don't need all that packing and repacking on your honeymoon! I hope you're hiring a car in Tuscany, because you can drive around the Chianti region and stop in a small town, do some wine tasting at a cave (pronounced carve) and have an interesting lunch of that region. Go to Monteriggioni - small walled village with two cafes in the piazza overlooking vineyards and olive trees, with a several hundred year old church that we were lucky enough to witness a wedding at. Between Siena and Florence. You can easily fill in a week in Florence alone!

Michelle_reed1: good question would be will your be renting a car? Tuscany offers a plethora of things to do. You can always have a (7/3)excursion to Pisa and Lucca, then during your days in the San Gimignano/Siena days, try day tripping to Chianti, Pienza, or further south try Assisi, Montepulciano. Not sure what you are using as a base but it heads you towards Rome

My wife would say foreplay, but I reckon there's beer in Italy.
