As you may have heard here on this very blog, Keith and I are getting married this summer, which is very exciting in and of itself. But perhaps just as exciting is the fact that we are taking our honeymoon in what is perhaps the most sacred place on the planet for me: Italy.
And we need your ideas on where to go!
We have a few destinations sketched out. We have to start in Venice, for reasons I will reveal shortly. We want to end in Rome and spend a few days there. Ideally, during the week in between, we wouldn’t want to travel around too much, so we’d like to spend a few days in two different locations. First, we’d love to stay in a villa outside a smallish town for a few days, where we could ride bikes to local wineries and farms and other towns throughout the area. Then we’d like to head to a hotel or resort in a small beach town for a few days, where there’s not much more to do than eat, drink and stare at the Mediterranean.
We’d love to hear your suggestions for places to to stay. I’ve traveled throughout Italy but it was a while ago. We’d love ideas for new places or secret spots. Perhaps your great aunt has a gorgeous villa that she only rents out to friends. Or maybe your college roommate runs a beautiful inn that’s perfect for a honeymooning couple. And of course, I am always accepting your recommendations for the finest gelaterias.
Please dispense your advice here so others might benefit from your wisdom. And if your aunt’s villa is available in early September, go ahead and tell her we’re on our way!
