These past couple of weeks I have been looking into getting everything figured out for our honeymoon coming up this July. The more research I do the more excited I get (I have been constantly bugging Christina every couple of minutes with all the things stuff I keep learning). We have finally got things pretty much figured out; what cities we are hitting, how long we are staying, hotels, etc.
After doing lots of searching around for hotels and B&B's, I've found they are a bit different in Italy than in the U.S. They definitely seem to have some more character, the rooms are much smaller, and the beds situation is a bit comical. When it's a 2 person room and a queen bed is requested, you instead get 2 twin beds pushed together, leaving a huge crack in between. But, I can't complain, we are going to Italy, and I can't wait.
We are going to be flying in and out of Rome. We found a bed and breakfast, Pettinary Villiage, situated in the heart of Rome. We are staying for 4 nights, and planning on taking a day trip down to Pompeii and Naples (known for their great pizza).
After Rome, we head off to Cinque Terre, 5 villages sitting right on the coast. We are staying at Albergo Barbara, a small B&B, looking over water. From there we are off to Venice for 4 nights, where we found a nice place that looks over the canal. Lastly, we head for Florence, where we have already booked a tour for a bike ride through the Tuscany hills accompanied by some wine tasting!
