All of those places are interesting in their own ways, but I would
recommend spending the most time in Rome, since it has the most to
offer. There are a huge number of historical sights, ruins, churches,
museums and interesting neighborhoods in Rome - there are many
rewarding places and experiences in those other cities also, but they
can be seen meaningfully in a shorter amount of time. Most people
think 2-3 days is fine for Venice, Florence or Milan not including day
trips from those cities - you would want a minimum of 4-5 days in Rome
and preferably more.

Golly, I'd just say plug those cities into rec.travel.europe's archives -
they're quite extensive. I was in Rome in June 2006 and did thus, and never
really needed to ask any supplementary questions. (Maybe I should have but
it was a short visit and RTE's only have so much time). In any case, I had a
brilliant week.

You should be grateful for any answer.

I would choose Rome out of those four, but my good reasons might not
be good reasons to you. I like history and I like big lively cities.
Rome wins on both counts.

You asked about Paris and Italy. One is a city, and the other is an
entire country. So stores that you would find in Milan you might not
find in Rome.

I don't know any equivalent of these other stores, and I have never
even been in a Costco or Marshall store. There are lots of
hypermarkets which offer lower cost household goods like Sears, but
they also sell food. Ipercoop is one. There are also lots of chains
that sell large and small appliances, plus electronics. Euronics is
one, but I don't know if it's national or regional.

Young Italian couples, if they can afford to buy anything at all, buy
homes on the same street as their parents. Otherwise, who would
provide them with free babysitting when they get around to having
kids? Who would invite them to dinner several times a week and send
them home with enough leftovers for the other nights? Who would offer
to help them with the laundry and ironing? Sometimes young couples
move into apartments that their parents have constructed on their own
property and kept vacant waiting for the kids to grow up and get
married.

Just as a footnote, Italians are probably the people most likely to
stay in their home town of any nationality in the world, and they
generally also marry someone from their hometown. They have a saying,
"Mogli e buoi dei paesi tuoi", which means "wife and oxen from your
own town".

Rome is big, awesome and timeless. I love it.
Venice is magic, and without doubt unique, even given how touristy it
is. You wont forget your visit.
Florence has an amazing centre, and plenty of gorgeous places within
reach of it.
Milan is worth half a day at the most, unless there's something
specific you want to see there. Even then, just see it, and get out.

Just did.

You are looking in the wrong place for things like this.

I can only assume that there is something like this exists where you
come from. It doesn't in Europe!

There should be an Auchan somewhere near Paris.

Maybe what you say applies to people of a small village ..
here people try to do something different from their parents. go to
university and look for a job that suits their liking.Most of them work in
export companies.
(64% of our production here goes abroad)
we have about 14% immigrants and the highest number of the so called MIXED
MARRIAGES
( men tend to get married with women of eastern europe while women get
married with men from nort africa)
in some schools 25% are immigrant children.
as to apartments, my son bought an apartment in Prague and lives in Prague
most of the year.
so. it is at least 1.000 kms from here..
with about 50% of our population coming from the south of Italy. I doubt
many people have their parents near them.
But as you live in Corinaldo. you have a different view of the Italian
society.

I don't know where you get your statistics, maybe from the Lega Nord?
It must include also children and grandchildren born in Italy.

According to the UN population division statistics, in 2005, 4.3% of
Italy's population was foreign born. This is rather low by European
standards; the UK has 9.1%, Germany 12.3% and France 10.7%. For all
developed countries in the world, the average is 9.5%. Canada has
18.9%, the US 12.9% and Australia 19.6%.

I don't have statistics but I also seriously doubt that Italy has the
highest number of mixed marriages (compared to whom? Maybe the Vatican
State?)

>( men tend to get married with women of eastern europe while women get

This is not a large percentage even if it's true. In many countries,
in Europe and elsewhere there are schools with nearly 100% immigrants.

50% of whose population? Do you have statistics to back that?

You have a rather idiosyncratic view of Italian society, yourself.

In order and time spent
Rome - 5-6 days easily. Museum, monuments lots of stuff to see.
Venice - 2-3 days decent amount of things to see, however with your
second question about stores if shopping is a big thing you might
spent more
Florence - 2 days Great museums
Milan - under a day, a few nice places to see, get tickets to the last
supper before you go. However if you do shopping plan a week.
