New to Italy

Jump to last reply

Hi, I'm a Fodor's newbie.

This might be the vaguest post ever, but here we go:

My husband will be turning forty in february--yes, 10 months from now :)--he has never been to Europe, and would like to go to Italy. I want to take him to Munich and then side trip to Austria...But he says he wants to see something 'really old'. HA! So i am trying to figure out what to do/where to go.

I lived in Holland in college and traveled quite a bit, but never made it to Italy. I am not a history buff--quite the opposite, really--and i know that history = italy...so I don't really know where to start. What are the important things to see?

I realize that you can't avoid touristy places--but my favorites spots in europe where those places outside of the touristy areas...Any recommendations on that?

Help me start the planning process....and be kind. :)
