My Life | Our Honeymoon in Italy | Rome, Tuscany, Cinque Terre & Florence

Our wedding weekend is just 3 weeks away... which means our honeymoon is 3 1/2 weeks away!  We're sealing up all of the details right now.
Here's where we'll be!

TUSCANY : Fonterutoli in Chianti
http://www.fonterutoli.com/

"Fonterutoli is just south of Castellina in Chianti (Siena), on the hills, in the heart of the Chianti Classico. Owned by the Mazzei family since 1435, it still retains its original form, that of a tranquil country village: a cluster of houses, the church of San Miniato and the villa, built at the end of the 1500s where the medieval castle once stood. On the main square next to the ancient church is the family villa, surrounded by the charming village apartments and suites managed as luxury b&b that can be rented individually or as a single unit."











FLORENCE : Hotel Lungarno

http://www.lungarnohotels.com/




"The silent Arno river flowing below, the enchanting light, beauty emanating from the modern art collection adorning the walls give this charming hotel a simply magical atmosphere. Located in the historical center of Florence and overlooking the Ponte Vecchio, Uffizzi Gallery, Piazza della Signoria, Santa Maria del Fiore cathedral and Palazzo Pitti are just steps away.


Hotel Lungarno offers all of the services of a 4 star superior hotel, including free Internet Wi-Fi, garage service, bar and restaurant Borgo San Jacopo.""






CINQUE TERRE : La Torretta




La Torretta is an stylish little hotel situated in the picturesque town of Manarola, in the heart of theCinque Terre National Park, a stretch of Ligurian coast famous for its spectacularly beautiful scenery and gravity defying cliff edge towns.
An intimate seaside residence, La Torretta occupies a 17th century tower house, meticulously restored so as to conserve its original architectural features. La Torretta's bedrooms and apartments are located in the tower house and the adjacent edifice, this latter of recent construction. In both buildings interiors feature a pleasing combination of traditional and modern furnishings, offering both comfort and technology. Bedrooms and Suites all have magnificent views of the sea.
The terraces and solarium of La Torretta provide the ideal venues where to relax in the Ligurian sunshineduring the day, and a wonderfully romantic location where to admire the sun setting over the sea, on warm summer evenings.
Breakfast is served al fresco on La Torretta's garden terrace or in the tavern which, in the evening, transforms in wine bar where to savor the excellent wines of the Cinque Terre.





ROME : The Inn at the Spanish Steps

The InnQuality, style and attention to detail which come only with family management are the hallmarks of our rooms and suites. Today this Locanda is totally renovated. Enjoy the sweeping view of the rooftops and domes of the historical center on a flower-filled rooftop terrace, with Trinità dei Monti and the Spanish Steps at your fingertips. Countless of Rome's cultural attractions are within walking distance. Fine restaurants, beloved "trattorie", trendy wine-bars and exclusive fashion boutiques are tucked into sidestreets.

    Do yourself a big favor and read this before you begin your driving adventure in Italy. Drove w Meg for a week and got a citation in Italian a full year later for traveling through a restricted zone...Beaucoup Euro!!
    Wish someone had told me first!

  2. also, our favorite restaurant in the free world, including our extensive international travels is in Florence. D' il latini is located near Piazza Santa Trinita via del Palchetti The glow from inside the restaurant seems to draw locals and tourists from the piazza. Ham hocks hanging from the ceiling and Chianti is pulled from the shelves on the wall. The menu is not in writing, but flows off the waiters tongue like a song. Creative and delicious. You may be seated at a long table with a combination of locals and tourists speaking several different languages.. but the universal language is found in the wine and food. We have recommended this family restaurant over the years and many have enjoyed it so much they rerouted their itineraries for an encore before returning stateside. If you have a chance have dinner here. Il latini has been on Frommers "worth the extra bucks" for 30 years!! It is a truly memorable dining experience
