I've started thinking about a trip to Italy I'd like to put together for my birthday over the summer. While I'd like to enjoy food and museums, I'm also hoping to do some shopping. Having never been to Italy I was wondering if you gentleman would recommend a good city to go to. I've heard how touristy Rome and Venice are. How unpleasant Naples can be, and while I realize it's all a matter of preference I'm hoping to get a better feel of where to go. I am also interested in finding some good men's clothing stores/factories as well. So any recommendations as well will be welcomed. On the store/factory point, are there any times that are better than others for picking up on sales?
