My fiancé and I were originally set on Italy for our honeymoon in August 2020. We are looking at about 18 days.
My concern is that if going to Italy we kind of want to see it all and were planning an itinerary for Rome-Tuscany (Florence, Cinque Terre), and a lot of the Amalfi Coast. I am worried it will be to much go-go-go after having a large wedding (250) and being busy visiting with all our international guests (30+). I know I will be stressed out and I worry I'll feel like I need a vacation after the vacation, lol. However I know it will be super romantic and we will have incredible food.
We are also now looking into Hawaii. I like the beach lifestyle a lot but my fiancé prefers a more exploratory vacation so I feel it could be a good balance for us. We would look at doing 2-3 islands (5 days on each).
These are our top 2 bucket list places so we will travel to each regardless- just a matter of which one is best for the honeymoon.
Anyone been to both (or 1) and have any thoughts? I know it's like comparing apples to oranges but I still wanted to gather some opinions. Thanks in advance!
