congratulation nado.....

November you can get rain.... but let me say that Italy is very charming as well even under the rain :-)

Then we have lot of museum....and in case you can plan your activities (given you want to visit those places) accordingly...if weather get wetty...you go indoor for some cultural visit or...you enjoy the warm of some local trattoria....

Florence and Venice are two "must seen" while in Italy....Venice is just unique (here if raining you could get high tide...that too is an experience!)

and i strongly recommend Rome as well that you can comfortably reach by train from florence.

Maybe tell us (particularly the expert) something more about your test and they can better advice you...

I live in Florence and, if you desire, I would be very happy to help you with the organization of your trip in Italy and in particular, in Tuscany.

In november you can get some rainy days but, believe me, it's better visiting Tuscany in Autumn than in summer, when it's too hot and impossibile to stay many hours outside under the sun! I think that you need a week to visit Tuscany: two days for Florence, one day Pise and Volterra, one day for Lucca, one day for Chiantishire and San Gimignano, one day for Montepulciano (where you can visit some amazing caves, tansting a wonderful wine), Pienza (where you can taste a very good cheese), Cortona and its ancient stores...there are so many towns and little medioeval villages to visit!

Let me know something else about your journey, I could help you in a better way! Best regards!

Hi there

Last year we had 8 nights in Italy - not enough!!! We broke it up into 2 nights Sorrento - 2 nights Rome - 2 nights Florence and 2 nights Venice. For honeymooners, I would thoroughly recommend Sorrento - one of favourite places in the world. We drove for a lot of our trip last year which may not suit your needs but it was terrific fun!!


Kind Regards

Some years it rains in November, some other years we get a dry month. Last year it rained a lot. But this year we are having a crazy hot September, so I expect the rainy month will be October this year.

Congratulations by the way!!!

Congratulations on choosing Italy for the Honeymoon !

I have to correct Casina di Rosa- last year in November it didn't rain a lot...it rained EVERY DAY..or at least it did in Florence. I doubt it will be the same this year.

With regards to trip planning, get in contact with Sally at Slice of Tuscany. She does just this sort of thing.
