Unhappy

I'm going to Italy for 15 days this March and I have a few questions.

First of all, there is so much to see and do in Italy that I have no idea where to start!! Any must see things that I shouldn't miss?? Second, can anyone suggest a few good hostels in Rome?? Thanks for any suggestions!!

go to a place called the cinque terre, its five cities within hiking distance of each other on the west coast of italy. look it up on the internet for more info.

yes, cinque terre is supposed to be very beautiful - i plan to see it next year when i vacation in italy. cinque terre

also on my list is the area of the italian lakes (that's just near the border of switzerland) - lago di como, particularly - expensive, but beautiful. not the best pics, but you get the idea - beautiful lake town surrounded by mountains also this is supposed to be a great (maybe the only, hence the "greatness") hostel in lago di como.

and considering the hiking opportunities during the time you'll be there - why not visit the sudtirol. it's in the dolomites and has a heavy german/austrian influence - supposed to be very beautiful. here's a pic of the area.

i'll be hitting up all these spots myself, so you know they gotta be cool!! :eat:
