Countdown to Venice

T minus 5 days.

Aside from Venice, I've got about a week's vacation to screw around in Italy for. I'm flying space-available, out of either Milan or Rome.
Questions, then.

Anything in particular you think I Absolutely Must go see while in Italy?
Anything you would say wasn't worth the bother of going to see?
Anyone out there actually surprised that apparently there is not a single Starbucks coffee shop in Italy (the world travel souvenir for a few years now has been a starbucks mug from city of visit)?
