Italy, however, I can help with - I lived there. It's great! Beautiful, fun, the people are great. And the food!!!
But it really is a question of what you want to do. Italy is interactive. It does not come to you - you have to "do" stuff, go places, see things, stand in lines for museums, etc.
On the other hand, Bora Bora is all about the not doing. Sitting on the beach, snorkeling, getting up for a leisurely lunch....
So it's a question of what do you want, and how much commotion do you want to undertake? If you want to veg, then Bora Bora. If you are doers, then Italy is fantastic.
If you decide on Italy, let me know. I can point you to some fantastic places, hotels, restaurants, etc.

Italy in the other hand is the country of Romance and love. I went to Florence, Sienna, Venice, Rome and Milan. Florence took my breath away, the history of that place was incredible. I couldn't believe I was actually staring at real Boticelli's and Michelangelo's pieces it was almost out of my comprehension. I heard people saw David for the first time and just thought that's it... I stare at him for an hour, because he's so perfect. You walked down the street and just see old frescos on the wall's corner, beautiful place. Sienna is actually more charming than Florence, in fact it reminds me of Prague. Tuscany is extremely picturesque and you feel you're in a postcard. Venice of course amazing, you have no idea what to expect when you arrive at the train station and see all the water around you. Knowing and seeing 2 completely different things, I felt the safest in Venice and I let myself get lost and wander around the city. The Piazza San Marco is just like what it looks in the movies, you look to your left and you see this jazz band dressed in tuxedos just playing in the peaceful afternoon. Rome and Milan reminded me of New York. I cried when I saw the vatican in Rome, I couldn't believe I was standing in it and felt very blessed for the opportunity.
Again, you have 2 amazing places in mind - just remember Bora Bora is for laying around and do nothing and Italy will be more of go go place, since you'll want to see everything. Good luck in your decision, it will be amazing either way.

Especially considering the massages all day long for $5-9usd
Compare that to the $25 hamburgers and $180 for a massage in Bora Bora and you can choose for yourself based on priorities.
Personally, I feel, going to Thailand is a MUST for anyone who has not been. Start in the north is my reccomendation, Chaing Rai or Chiang Mai, then head south through Bankok and end in Phuket.
Time of your life. if you have any questions fire away. We travel alot
