My fiance and I are traveling to Italy for our honeymoon. I am a chef and food will be a focus of our trip. We are staying for 5 nights in Rome, 3 nights in Lerici, and 5 nights in Florence. I have researched Rome, do not have any reservations. I have researched Lerici slightly, and have just begun Florence. I would love any recommendations for 'must eat at' restaurants in Florence in particular, but Rome, Lerici(surrounding villages) would be beneficial as well.
Our plan is to do a few museums and sights in Rome and Florence, but to try and blend in to the city as much as possible and eat and walk around. We really want to try and experience the cities from a local perspective as much as possible while doing some of the main attractions. The main purpose for Lerici is r and r. This being my first posting, and our first trip to Italy together, we would take any suggestions. Thank you for your help!!
