Honeymoon in Italy? Two weeks Amalfi/Siciliy?

Hi, my fiancée and I will planning our honeymoon and would like to go to Italy.

It will be the last week of August/first week of Sep this year and here are our thoughts:

- needs to be relaxing for post wedding but maybe not full two weeks I.e. First week chill, second week see sights

- definitely want sun/heat so thinking Amalfi coast

- I'd also like to idea of seeing another part, so first week Amalfi then second week Siciliy or Sardinia

I'm not keen on taking in a wide range of places ie multi centre, and don't want to be travelling a lot.

So would appreciate where would be good to base ourselves for beach chilling in the first week then where else to enjoy some sights/food.

Congrats JetSetChris!

Consider the Amalfi Coast or the beaches of Sardinia for your first week, and then Sicily for your second week.

Sardinia has the best beaches.

You might also consider Sardinia for your first week, and then the Amalfi Coast for your second week if you'd like to see Naples, Pompeii, Herculaneum, or Paestum.

Many pair Campania with Sicily.

You could fly from Naples to Catania, and then base in Taormina and Siracusa for your week in Sicily, or perhaps also consider Taormina and the Aeolian Islands for the week.

Best wishes!

That's great Vagabonda, we will certainly look into that!

Can you tell me what the temperatures will be like at that time of year (end Aug/start Sep), especially for the beaches of Sardinia?
