Ciao Italy.

I've got travel on the mind. In less than 2 months, I will be heading to Italy for a week of eating & exploring. My biggest fear when traveling abroad is being wrongly accused of a crime I didn't commit and ending up in a foreign prison (i.e. lots of real life examples + Brokedown Palace which I've never seen - didn't need to - got the story in my nightmares). 

My second biggest fear is accidentally dining in restaurants that I think are authentic, but are actually closer to being the European version of Applebee's.

Have you been to Italy? If so, save me some stress and bestow upon me your suggestions for things to see / EAT / do / EAT / visit / EAT.
