Relax during your Amalfi Coast & Tuscany Honeymoon!
This is one of those “popular demand” packages that so many people ask for. It is not the most natural combination, because the Amalfi Coast and Tuscany are not close together. They are separated by a lot of Italy, including the cities of Rome and Naples. To connect the two areas, you will first be transferred by car from the Amalfi Coast to Naples, then ride a train from Naples to Rome, then ride another train from Rome to Tuscany. At the Tuscany station, you’ll be met by a private driver who will take you the final step of the way to your lodging in Tuscany. That journey will take about 7 hours in total. Your reward is to get the combination of two of Italy’s most popular honeymoon destinations, without needing to stay in Rome, in the middle. Of course, if you wish to add a Rome stay between the Amalfi Coast and Tuscany, we can certainly do that.
You’ll start your trip by flying into Naples. At the Naples airport, your private transfer driver will meet you for the drive to Positano, the most popular destination on the Amalfi Coast, for 3 nights in a hotel with sea view and balcony. Next day, your driver will meet you again for a full-day excursion on the Amalfi Coast, including Ravello. For your second full day, you have choices. You can simply relax at Positano, or take the boat along the coast to the town of Amalfi, for views you can’t get from the road. Or you can take the boat to the Isle of Capri. Our tips will explain how we recommend spending a day at Capri.
Then you get picked up in Positano to start the journey to Tuscany, by car and train. We can give you a choice of various kinds of Tuscany locations, ranging from countryside to small town to the city of Siena, but the one we recommend most for honeymoons is a little castle in a tiny village north and east of Siena. On your first full day in Tuscany, you will meet your driver-guide for a full-day tour, which can include a winery if you wish. As with the Amalfi Coast excursion, it will just be the two of you and your driver, a private experience, so you can decide the pace and the emphasis, and you are never with a group. For your second full day in Tuscany, your time is totally free. If you choose a rural Tuscany location, you can walk in the countryside, or sit by a pool looking over a memorable Tuscan view. If you choose to stay at Siena instead, you can have all the art and architecture of that city to explore.
For the finish of your Italy honeymoon, you will be transferred to Florence, so that you can be prepared to fly out of that city. This gives you a chance to sample a few city pleasures, including museums or shopping, or simply to enjoy the big choice of restaurants in Florence. Your hotel will be right in the very center of the city.
