After Puglia... how to get back to Rome?

Jump to last reply

After 8 days in Puglia (2 Matera, 2 Lecce, 4 Polignano) we need to get back to Rome. We will have a rental car which we can pick up in either Sorrento or Salerno at the beginning of the Puglia portion of our trip. Obviously we could drive and drop it off in Rome but that requires driving into Rome plus it's something like 5 hours. So we thought we'd take the train at least part way but on Autoeurope's site every town I try says 'no drop off location'. Before I call them I was wondering what others have done. It looks like dropping off at Ciampino Airport might be possible.

Another question - we have about a day and a half 'extra' in our trip. At present our last night in Polignano is Tuesday night and our flight out of Rome isn't till almost noon on Friday. So assuming it will take at least half a day to get from Polignano to Rome however we do it, that still leaves a day and a half. Add it to Puglia? I've always wanted to see Hadrian's Villa in Tivoli. Any other suggestions? (We will have done the Amalfi Coast before Puglia, and Rome as well plus I've been to Rome several times, I want the last night there but don't need any more than that).
