Traveling to Italy - Need Advice

Recommended Posts

We're going to Italy in September. I've been, DH hasn't.

 

I LOVED it. I went to Rome, Florence, Venice, and Portifino.

 

My DH wants to go to the same places and I really do want to as well. I want to spend time with him touring wineries, etc. The problem that we're struggling with is finding places we can augment the trip with that I didn't go that we can easily access on this route (like places in Tuscany).

 

Does anyone have any advice or some really great places that we should check out whether as day trips or as stops we should make?

Natasha I went to so many great places but I was much younger and I can't remember their names at all. So I'm no help. LOL. But I personally love Milan so I would stop there if you can. You are going to have so much fun, I am so jealous!

Natasha ~ I'm going to watch this thread too. We leave for Italy on sept. 19th. I'm planning to focus on the details of the trip after my wedding.

 

I went about 9 years ago and can hardly remember the details of all the places we stopped, etc. Sorry I was no help with your question.

i can't figure out if you'll be near any of this places but supposedly the Amalfi Coast (south of Naples) is supposed to be lovely. The island of Capri is supposed to be great too...

have you been to cinque terra? (5 vilages). i went there while in college & i think we took the train in from genoa or rome. it is an amazing place - it consists of 5 villages built into the cliffs right along the sea. you can hike between them and stay in different locations, or wine taste and go into the next village for lunch. it is SO beautiful! do a google search to find out more. We loved it!!

I was going to suggest cinque terra as well. It is one of my top 3 fav areas in Europe. It's a good place to end a trip because there aren't a ton of sites you feel compelled to see. It's all about hiking, relaxing, eating, drinking.

Natasha - my Aunt and Uncle travel a LOT because my uncle is a photographer (you can see his Italy work in Macaroni Grill). Go to their website - www.SunToMoon.com and click on "Marilyn's Travel Tips". There you can click on "Italy" and find my aunt's travel advice! Hope this helps!!!

I only went to Rapollo and Potofino. I think Rapallo is the last village. I agree - it is totally beautiful!

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
