Wedding update: Vespa road trip through Italy

For our honeymoon, we talked about a lot of options: New Zealand, France, the Caribbean. Those just didn't seem like "us". But this, I'm really excited about. I think we'll spend a couple weeks in Europe traveling, but the main event will be a road trip from Rome to Naples along the Amalfi coast riding on a Vespa. It's about 120 miles one way and the terrain looks to be easily done on a scooter. We've done similar trips on Matt's scooter so we'll totally be ready for this!

Let me know if anyone has Europe travel suggestions (I love the heck out of comments!)

UPDATE: We went on our road trip! It was amazing. Read all about our trip, our route, our Vespa, and my tips for Vespa travel in Italy HERE.

  3. Wow - that's quite a trip! Will you be staying along the Amalfi Coast at all? My family and I stayed in Positano for 3 nights this past summer, in addition to Rome and Sicily. My husband and I went to Italy for our honeymoon in 2007 and spent 2 weeks in Varenna (Lake Como), Venice and Tuscany. Ohhh, you will have an amazing time! Let me know if you'd like any advice about specific cities/places!
