We plan to fly to Rome October 20th and out November 11th. We been at Rome before and North from Rome. We like to explore South Italy including Sicily. Idea is to spend about 10 days traveling relatively close to Rome than fly to Palermo rent a car and explore Sicily, fly back to Rome and same day fly to US. Question, is it good idea at this time of the year? How to spend 10 days around Rome? Should I get car or train and bus easier?
