Not had a honeymoon yet due to funds from our wedding last year, thinking now more a long weekend to city break then Vegas. Milan looked good on the Gino TV show last night. Thing is if you arent shopping is it still worth going?

Did also consider Rome or Venice, I do like the idea of Venice a sit's totally different to a normal city break what with no cars and the canals etc.

We love Venice. Jet2 do city breaks and direct flights (to Marco Polo airport), well from Edinburgh anyway. :) We love Al Ponte Mocenigo for our trips to Venice, great location but you do need to book well in advance. Can give you lots more info if you need

We fancy Venice but worried about crowds. Milan is ok but seems more shopping biased which we dont really do abroad. We like sights, walks and people watching with a coffee and rink.

Is it a nice train journey scenic wise from Venice to Milan, maybe we do 2 nights Venice and 1 night Milan then fly home from there.

Or, if you are going when the weather is nice and you truly want a minimoon. Sirmioni at the bottom of Lake Garda is also really nice. My wife and I still use that for when we can get rid of the children and want some time for us :)

Someone else mentioned Sirmioni, so we are thinking Milan, Venice and Sirmioni, max 4/5 nights we would have. Which order, flying from Liverpool or Manchester maybe.

Yes all on the same Trainline. You could get off at dezensano for sirmioni :)

No cars allowed in sirmioni but a taxi can get to the hotel. Hotel Olivi is a nice balance between not too posh but great service and in a nice area.

Just need to decide which place we fly into from liverpool or manchester. Then presume we would fly out from a different one?

Rome is fabulous, but likely to be busy.
Just to add another suggestion - have you considered the Amalfi Coast? Base yourself in Sorento and you have Positano, Ravello, Amalfi, Capri, Naples, Herculaneum, Pompeii and Vesuvius all within striking distance. It's a stunning corner of the world.

Amalfi coast is great, a lot to see and do.
Rome is fabulous, been three times in the last 20 years, never there long enough to see all it has to offer. You would need a month in both of those places just to nicely scratch what they have to offer.
