Looking for an area that is centrally located enough to make day trips to other areas. We are on a tight budget so I would like a less expensive area- preferrably near the coast.
My fiance definitely wants to visit Rome. I want to eat in southern Italy for sure. We are completely open to non-touristy suggestions other wise.
Any suggestions are welcome.
If you do not stay in Rome (which sounds like the obvious and easiest choice for you) then I would head to Sorrento in the South. Its a laid back small beachside city known for its beautiful coastline. Its only a short drive to the remains of the city of Pompeii and also a short boat ride to Isle of Capri which is absolutely breathtaking. This would be an ideal relaxed and romantic honeymoon location! Congratulations & Good luck!

My parents visited Florence (Firenze) recently and enjoyed themselves. Good city if you enjoy shopping, too. Found this video - http://videos.eurobookings.com/italy-florence-florence-on-a-budget.html over 9 years ago
San Gimignano is probably one of the most romantic and magic town in Italy, very close to Florence,Pisa,Lucca and Siena also including Chianti and Brunello wine area.
It is often chosen as base for marriages due to its spectacular photo sets
