I'm planning my 24 day honeymoon in Italy this July and I'd really appreciate some feedback...
My fiance and I are into Beaches, food and small towns but we also want to visit Rome, Venice and Florence. We are considering renting a car should we? And most importantly, what do you think of this itinerary I put together:
1. Rome - 5 days
2. Siena - 4 days (trips to San Gimignano, Moteriggioni)
3. Florence - 4 days (trip to Lucca and Pisa)
4. Levanto - 3 days (trips around the riviera, including Cinque Terre)
5. Mantua - 2 days (trip to Verona)
6. Venice - 3 days
7. Bellagio - 3 days. Depart from Milan airport

Thank you so much
Congratulations on a fabulous journey - your trip is looking awesome! I would recommend for you to consider visiting the coastline in Levanto - if you are lucky with the weather, you will enjoy the legendary beaches almost certainly, as long as you take some tanning lotion with you. My hubby and I are thinking of returning to Italy this fall, and your journey plan has given me some ideas already, thanks
Sounds like you will have a wonderful time! Florence is really beautiful and I have always wanted to go to Venice! As far as renting a car goes I think that could be a really good way of seeing Italy as you can then drive through the beautiful countryside and stop to admire the views or enjoy local cafès in little rural villages - rural Italy is also stunning so you could fit in some of that easily between your cities if you rent a car. Have an amazing honeymoon!
