Getting married in May 2024 and want to book our honeymoon for late may/early june. We want to do something in Europe, and we are looking for a good mix of relaxation and city life. We usually are very go-go-go on our vacations, so we want something that gives us the ability to go fast and explore a city, but also take it slow if we wanted.
I think a good example of what we are looking for is when we went to Italy. We did Rome/Florence/Venice.
Rome was packed with things to do, and very crowded on the itinerary (maybe too crowded), while Florence we took things slower, did a day trip, and didn't really do much touristy things but had fun just walking around the city and acting as if we lived there.
Any suggestions on areas that would fit this? Plan on being gone for 12 days (2 days being travel from the US), so we could ideally fit 3 cities to stay in, with a couple day trips if needed.
