tour of italy dilema

hi we would like to visit Florence, sienna, sorento and Paris for our honeymoon and had it all planned out then realized it is a 5+ hour drive from Tuscany to sorento. we could a) add a night in rome but then need to accommodate a car, b) fly between destinations or c) train it. not sure what would be the most cost effective option, any ideas? original plan was to fly from u.k to Florence, drive to fortalunga near sienna, then drive to sorento and fly to Paris TIA or if anyone has any other idea of places to go instead of sorento that is closes would like to have a beach resort

many thanks

Flying probably won't save much time by the time you get to the airport early, take the flight, and then, get to where you're going once you arrive.

Screwed up holidays aren't that important, honeymoons are.

Keep your honeymoon simple and special, get a base and just tootle around the area.

We had ours around Catalonia, just 30 miles max a day.... it was great.

Naples is a magical area, a month's worth of sights, or go north around Venice and Florence, but simple is best.

Save Rome, Naples, Sorrento, and southern Italy for another trip.

I'm from naples but if you don't want to miss florence, it would be better to avoid the south, too stress for a honeymoon...

Auguri sinceri...
