Need broad planning suggestions for Italy in November

themiguel | Oct 29, 2012 08:17 AM

Hi everyone,

Going to Italy for my honeymoon from November 18 to early December. Planning to stay in Rome and Florence as well, and have already allocated 8 nights during the first half of our trip between those two locations, and thanks to this board I have some great research in hand for both of those locations. I am now at a bit of a loss on where to go for the remainder of the trip (say November 26-December 3).

Food is the primary concern here - we want to be in areas with delicious food, especially regions specializing in pasta.

It probably makes no sense to head back south, we will devote an entire other trip to that area. Thinking we should devote most of our time to the north/central regions.

Venice - there is the issue of aqua alta in November/December, but I think its probably worthwhile to go for a day or two.

Cinqo Terre - Mostly shuts down in November I hear

Piedmont - White truffle festivals are over by late november when we will be available to go.

If you were planning a dream food trip to Italy during late November/early december, what regions wouldn't you miss?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
