I was a young, US Navy enlisted man in 1982 when I was last in Italy. Which means I didn't have much in the way of expenses. All my pals and I got to do was ride a bus through and back. We were able to walk around in Naples, but not Rome. It only made me want to go back. So, I've got the chance but am clueless. It looks like I'll be able to go in February or March. All I know is that I want to "do" Rome for 3 or 4 days walking and/or riding a bus. I don't know where to start. Is there a popular opinion on a travel agent or not to use one? Actually, I'm looking for a rather basic trip. I think I can handle what's needed for air travel, but after that I'm lost. To me, it looks like I just need to book a hotel, walk around and see the sites, and go home. But my wife says there is more to it than that. So here I am. Can anyone point me in the right direction?Thanks, Don
First trip to Italy since the Navy
