Help plan my foodie honeymoon

littleguy | Sep 8, 2008 08:13 PM

Hello! I am trying to plan my 12 day honeymoon in Italy and I am having a hard time choosing where to go. I have been to Rome, Florence, and Venice, but my fiance has never been to Italy. I was thinking about starting in Rome for 3 days, going on some kind of walking tour in Tuscany or Cinque Terre for 5 or 6 days, and then going somewhere relaxing- either Como or Amalfi coast for the remaining days. However, I am totally flexible on this. So, if you could please help me out with the following...
- Does anyone have any experience with any walking tour companies in Italy, e.g. girasole, backroads, etc...?
- Is the food better around Lake Como or on the Amalfi coast? Alternate relaxing places will also be considered. I'm going in June if that helps.
- Since I've already been to Rome and stayed by Piazza Navonna, I was planning to mix it up a little and stay in Trastevere this time. I see on these boards that Testaccio seems to be preferred over Trastevere. Is this the case? Are there any hotels particularly well situated for major chowing down?

Thanks in advance for any and all feedback. I feel like a kid in a candy store planning this vacation- I'm so overwhelmed, but in a good way!
