Thinking Italy for our 14 day honeymoon in September.. recs on time to spend in each place? Rome, Florence/Tuscany, Venice, Dolomites, maybe cinque terre. We like driving and exploring nature and country + good food (with more than just pasta) + some art/culture

We did Italy and Greece last fall. Went to Rome, Sorrento, Capri, and Positano. All of those places were amazing! We never made it north to Tuscany/Florence/Tuscany but wish we would have. One thing we did which was a waste was Pompei. I would skip that unless you really like to walk around in ruins. Try to research restaurants before you go. Some places were still closed due to Covid but I bet it will be better in the fall this year. Good luck and have fun.

Agree with all of this!

We’re planning the same itinerary as K1 for September but we will add Pompeii and Naples because my SO loves that kind of stuff. I’d recommend 3 days in Florence, 3-4 days in Rome, 1-2 in Venice.

If you don’t want to trek out to Pompeii, you can take the commuter train to Ostia antica outside Rome. Very interesting ruins

Wife and I did Sorrento (toured Almafi, Positano and later Pompeii), Capri, then Rome for 10 days. If I had a couple more, I would have added Florence. I wanted all the same things you do, and it did not disappoint.

Hi everybody just want to share something.
I was the 2021 best ADR of all CEU in my company, got a promotion as account executive and in the first 7 month I’ve been between the 3 best sales of the team (12 people). Got back from 2 weeks of holidays and a month of sick leave I’m a bit demotivated by the culture of always been closing, always pushing etc.. I feel like I’m a bit tired. Probably I need a new experience or I don’t like the job anymore.. Anyone been in this situation? Any advice?
