15From pisa you could get to the Cinque terre, which are rather incredible.
You have the whole Rivera extending towards Genova (which has its own airport)...
Sestri Levante, Rapallo, Santa Margherita, Camogli (personal favourite) are all amazing, and definitely cheaper than Amalfi (though very similar). If you can fit it in your budget Portofino is right there, but its quite touristy, over used, and there are really so many more beautiful places all around it.

19everybody travels for different reasons jaykay. The reason si important, as it has an impact on what you want to get out of it and how to approach it. expecting people to ignore the context is not realistic and doesn't make any sense.
I already said this is a two-way street. In the end you make the choices you make. but You're going to get much more out of this if you treat this as a dialogue and respond to people's questions.
For the record: have you ever married outside of your home country? I have, actually. Not in Italy, but i have lived there many years and have attended several weddings there. The questions about paperwork are not gratuitous.
And Flapic brought up the issue who's paying-it's an interesting cultural comparison. Again, you can engage in that discussion (remember that two-way street?) or you can stamp your feet in anger lthat you're not getting what YOU want.

20but in Italy if the marrying couple invites people to attend the wedding at a location different than the one they live, they have room and flights payed!
So I must have always attended the wrong couples' marriages!
Jokes apart, that's simply not true. The marrying couple (more often, their parents) pay for the lunch or dinner or aperitivo or whatever, but surely it's not an Italian cultural rule that they pay for rooms and flights. Maybe in some areas of Italy, this is expected - but honestly, I've never heard of that, either in the north or the south of Italy.
