We're planning on a honeymoon trip from Boston, USA to Italy sometime in April next year. Both of us are excited about Rome, especially my husband since he's very into History of Rome podcast. So here's our plan so far.
4 nights in Rome, 3 full days and half a day, our flight arrives around 11:00 AM.
3 nights in Florence, but this means we only have 2 FULL DAYS in Florence.
4 nights in Milan, which means 3 full days in Milan.
After doing some research, most people seem to prefer Florence over Milan, should we do 4 nights in Florence and just 3 nights (2 full days) in Milan?
My husband has visited Venice before and I don't know why I'm more drawn to Milan than Venice... Also we're flying into Rome, but flying out of Milan, and the airfare is reasonably priced and no long layovers. So basically we're sure we wanna do Rome-Florence-Milan but just not sure which city to spend a bit more time in.
PS. Food is extremely important for us. I'm not really a museum person, and love big cities. We've lived in NYC for a few years and I just love the diversity and energy it has. I think this is why I'm favoring Milan over Florence... We spent 6 days in Paris last year and LOVED It. I also spent 5 days in Berlin but didn't have the same emotional attachment as I did when I went to Paris... I know this depends on personal preference but if it were you, would you spend more time in Milan or Florence?
