Hi there,

If you get the opportunity go to Sicily, it has wonderful landscapes, beaches, excellent but cheap food and friendly people. There is the most amazing architecture/history - Roman, Greek, Byzantine, Art Nouveau & Deco - there's one valley where there are five standing temples. There's also Mount Etna.

Surrounding Sicily are numerous small islands where it is like stepping back in time to a much slower and easier pace of life.

On mainland Italy, Rome and Venice are must sees but probably only for a couple of days. The north of Italy tends to be more industrial and has a different culture from the South. The major cities are, like everywhere, more expensive than elsewhere.

Everywhere you go in Italy you will encounter good food and exceptionally friendly people. I hope you have a brilliant time!

Hay there
It has been about 26 or so years since I was there but Rome was kinda cool(3 day tour) ,saw the Catacombs ,the Coliseum, St. Peters (went to the top of the thing , a long winding stair case but still pretty cool) saw the Pope's house part of it (not his quarters though) and the "whole Vatican tour". went to Pompei and Mt Vesuvius also ,you can or was able to the ,take a ski lift to the top and look into the Volcano and see steam venting alittle :thumbsup: . I'd stay away from Naples unless they've cleaned up alot (the bay was used a a open sewer for the whole town, with the smell to go with it). I've heard the northern parts are much nicer but never made it up there.
