Just tried to find a pic of me in a gondola in Venice - msut have been taken with my other camera (not digital).
We had the cutest gonalier (is that right?) and he had a great voice - one of my friends had a guy who sang AC/DC! lol

ohh so jealous!

I just spent 2.5 weeks in Italy over Christmas (first European trip) and it was totally amazing - i have actually spent the morning reminicising as i sent photos to my brother

my avatar is a pic of me and h2b at pisa

we hired a car for a few days and drove ourselves around the Tuscany/Umbria area - the best choice ever

we went to Rome, Napoli, Florence, Volterra (for stuck there in the snow overnight), Poggibonsi (boring would not recommend), a quick stop in Sienna, Assisi, Arezzo, and Torino

if you want any advice for good accommodation that wont kill your wallet or any thing else send me a message and i can give you more details

cheers

So exciting! we are spending 4 weeks in italy in April (as part of a bigger trip) - we are doing all the places that you listed plus a few more..

so I am afraid at the moment I dont know much but soon I will be able to give some hints! (I cant wait)

We are doing it for our first wedding anniversary but I cant imagine a more romantic place to have your honeymoon!! Congratulations

You'll love Positano and Amalfi. It is beautiful there. I was there for a week and it was awesome.

We flew emirates for our wedding recently as well and they were great.

Hey Jen,

your honeymoon sounds awesome!! Very please for you - you must be very excited.

We have visited all the places you are going to - Rome was our fav of all the cities we saw (kicked Paris' butt but that is juts our opinion!!) We camped though, so I don't know if you would want our accomodation recommendations!!

We only saw one town in the Cinque Terre - Riomaggiore. But it was gorgeous and I can't wait to go back there and explore more.

This pic is me on a Vaporetto (water taxi) going to Lido island in Venice. I recommend the trip out there, to the beach and for a wander. But there are so many things to make your list I am sure!!

Have fun planning....Becs.

Congrats on booking the Honeymoon Jen!! You should be excited - you will both have an amazing time. Of all the places we have visited, I would have to say Italy is my favourite.
Do let me know if you need any tips or help with the planning and I'd be happy to help.

Jen, believe me I spent our entire trip walking around with goosebumps!!!!

If you ever want to be bored by photos (other than my wedding ones, which you have already been bored by laugh.gif ) over a coffee, let me know.
