Hello all..

Italy is GREAT! I lived there for a while. And you can find and do whatever you want, so that's all you have to do. It's a great choice for a honeymoon.

 

RE: a cruise around Italy... Cruises are great because you can see a lot of places and things and you don't have to repack your bags. However, most of the cruises have "all aboard" around 6:00 PM, every night so that they can move to the next port. No Italian town comes to life until 7:00PM at the earliest. So if you really want to experience Italy, a cruise ship won't give you much opportunity. But it's certainly easier.

 

My very favorite places in Italy (in no particular order) are Florence, Siena, Verona, Capri, Orvieto, the Cinque Terre and Taormina (Sicily). Rome is great, but is soooo big. Milan has never been my favorite.

 

So, decide what you want to do - sightsee and visit historical stuff (in which case Florence, Venice, Rome), sit on the beach (Cinque Terre, Portofino/Santa Margherita, Amalfi Coast/Capri, Rimini), see the smaller towns (Verona, Orvieto, Lucca).

 

I can give you some great restaurant and hotel suggestions in pretty much any of the towns I've mentioned.

We're going to live in Italy for 3 months after the wedding... June, July, and August. I'm so excited!!! I used VRBO.com (which stands for vacation rentals by owner) to find a place. They're furnished apartments that you can rent out per week or per month. But if you'd rather stay in a hotel that's different. We're probably going to spend 2 months in Florence, and 1 month in Rome.

If you go right to the top of this page you will see a banner that keeps changing, but it says "Contact a BDW Travel Agent" and the different names of the TA's. If you click on that banner, another window opens and you can then send an email from there. You can select a specific TA. Or you can go to your private messages and send one to TA Melinda.

    • My wedding date is set for the next month but not found any wedding planner finally got one wedding planner. its very very help for my wedding arrangement thank you indian wedding company
    • What color is your wedding? You can go with warm autumn-inspired colors such as burnt oranges, dark reds, burgundy, bright yellows, like fall foliage   https://printsbery.com/invitations/wedding/burgundy   What planning have you guys done?  
    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
    • Welcome. I am a past Dreams Los Cabos bride. Please let us know if we can assist in any way. We have some great promotions (bride and groom fly free, comped rooms and upgrades).    info@wrighttravelagency.com
