We're planning our Italian honeymoon and would love your advice!

We haven't made reservations yet, but the plan is 2 weeks to do Siena / Pisa / Cinque Terre, with maybe a 3rd week in the area or within a train/boat ride. The honeymoon will be late July / early August. We live in Arizona, so even if it's hot in Italy, it'll be nicer than home :)
We love travel in general and Europe specifically, so I know we can't go wrong, but we would appreciate your tips:
- We've both been to Rome and London; I've been on school trips to Paris, Barcelona, Basel and Venice. Loved them all.
- I'm an architect so old buildings, new buildings, museums and interesting urban areas are must-see.
- We're both rock climbers, hikers and campers so outdoorsy things would be great.
- She's a pharmacist, so if there are medical-related points of interest (?) those would be fun too.
Lastly, what's the best way to actually plan the trip? Travel agents seem so 20th-century, but I've never actually used one so wouldn't know. Is Kayak the way to go? Some local Italian resource? We'd be interested in hotels, (nice) hostels and/or vacation rentals, as well as hiking/camping information. TIA!
