I've been to both countries and I'd definitely vote for Italy, especially since you said you were interested in the people. The French (obviously not all of them) can be very rude. The Italians, on the other hand, are in general much friendier and welcoming. Sorry for the generalization. To the French people and the touchy people of TP, please don't shoot me.

Thank you so much, all of you. You have been very kind :)

I was leaning toward italy, one of my buddies was leaning towards france.

This was my plan for Italy

Land in Rome, spend 3 days there, travel overnight to Florence, spend two days there and a day to see the country side aruond it). Travel overnight to Naples and spend 3 days there and around Pompei and Capri, travel back to Rome and get back to new york.

Or

Land in Milan, spend 2(or 3) days between Milan and Verona and travel to florence. spend 2 days there, a day in coutnry side around it and travel to Rome, spend 2 or three days there and fly back from Rome.

Basically, both of the plans have Florence and Italy. One has more of Milan, Verona and northern Italy. The other has more of Capri, Pomepei and Southern shore of Italy.

Which one would you reccomend? Its going to be in middle of June.

Also for Paris, plan was to

Spend 3 days in paris, travel south to Niece etc provinces spend total fo 5 days there, come back to Paris spend 2 more days and fly back home.

owww and i would go for rome..
because it's an eternal city and a good way to start your experience in italy, and also because almost everyone falls in love with that city

but paris should be great aswell..

Italy or France??

What a question, what a decision to make!

Go to Paris, stay there 2-3 nights.
Take Rryanair from Paris to Rome.
Stay in and around Rome. Go and see Florance and Pisa maybe Naples further south. You can do this in 6-7 days. I think this might be your best shot! Have a nice time.

mtlgal ???
look at this big essential generality.

Vagabond. Don't come in France.
As you know french are very chauvinistics.
Those french() can insult you anytime.
And if you are brave and you'd decide to come, be careful
