Italy is on top Jun 10, 2011
I've been to Italy numerous times. Each time I have an amazing experience.

From all my travel around the country, I found that the north side is the nicest. Especially around lakes, such as, Garda Lake.

You'll want to stay away from Restaurants in the tourist areas.

They usually get you with good deals, but the food ends up being just average. Talk to locals, store owners, or hotel receptionists about good spots. I found amazing Restaurants and hidden beaches this way.

If you want beach time, stay in the south, or the northern east-side. A very nice place is called Albarella.

Definitely rent a car and drive from town to town. So worth it.
