What a great trip-Italy is fantastic! There's so much to see that it can be overwhelming. Obviously, Rome, Florence and Pompeii. But start reading guidebooks right away, because you'll never have time to see everything. Depending on your personal interests, Italy offers the greatest history, archeology, religion, art, fashion, food, scenery, and the very nicest people. Just choose what you're most interested in. BTW, I'm not Italian, I've just been lucky enough to have travelled a lot. Italy is the best! Have fun!
