Which Italy Honeymoon would you choose?

Re: Which Italy Honeymoon would you choose?

  • My vote would be for #2
    Vacation
  • It looks like it depends if you want to go to Pisa/Milan/Lake Como or Cinque Terre.

    Since either way you go to a west coast town (Sorrento/Almafi Coast) and you wouldn't actually get to spend overnight in CT, I would pick #2.

    CT was my SILs fav part of Italy, but they spent several nights there and didn't go to Sorrento-area; so given the day excursion; I'd pass that for option of Milan/Pisa and Como!

    I'd probably go with option #2.  As touristy as it was, I liked seeing the leaning tower in person.  I also enjoyed Assisi.  I have heard Cinque Terre is great though.

    I'lll add...we did the 11 Day Enchanting Italy by Gate 1 last year and loved it!  It was our first escorted tour and we were afraid we wouldn't like it but I actually look forward to using them again sometime in the future.  There were 2 honeymooning couples in our group.  If you have any questions, PM me.
  • Hmm I wonder if the 12 Day enchanting one is the best?   My friend is going on this one for her honeymoon but I think the difference is it doesnt include Como/Milan
    Any thoughts?

  • I've been all of these places and thought Cinque Terra & Assisi were unique and worth it, Pisa not so much (and I'm an engineer!). Florence is by far my favorite city in Italy so I wouldn't advise anyone to skip it. Option 2 feels a bit more rushed to me, but has Florence! Given a choice I'd go to fewer places and spend a bit more time in each one.

    Regardless, you'll have a great trip. :-)
  • Option 2, though Sorrento wouldn't be my choice for the AC.

    This is the same tour we did, but this one has one additional day in Sorrento.  We did a day trip to Capri and enjoyed it.  The other folks that were staying an additional day took a trip up the Amalfi Coast.....I would've loved to see Positano.  Overall, we LOVED this trip.  We ate some amazing food, drank great wine, saw all the sights we wanted to and had enough free time on our own that we didn't feel cramped.
  • Option 2 sounds great!
  • #1

    You will get a very close look in each place but #2 is spread too thin
  • Number 1 does have a full day option in Florence :
  • They both look great, but I'd go with #2 as well.
