If you want allot of range, with either canon the ef-s 15-85 is a excellent lens, and for italy you may want wider vs more range. 15mm is pretty wide.

The d7000 the af-s 16-85 would cover about the same ranges as the canon.

The kit lenses are decent but not great. They are not really poor.

with the brand, it depends on what you want to shoot. If only general photography either will work just fine, for action the canon. I went into more details in your other thread.
