Sicily/Rome trip questions

Jump to last reply

I'm traveling with my family/parents (6 people total) this summer to Sicily (9 days) and Rome (4 days). We are still in the planning phase but booked already the international tickets.

I'd like to get some suggestions on:

1) trip from Palermo to Rome: should we fly or use the 12h day train option? Is the train trip scenic/worth it?

2) I'm not planning to rent a car in Rome. We'll go around using public transportation but we would like to take a day and go to Villa Adriana: any suggestions on the best way to get there for the day visit? Keep in mind my parents are in their 70s

3) I'm planning to rent a car/van in Sicily for our 9 days there. Should I rent one large van that would fit the 6 of us (but perhaps limit our mobility/parking options in small towns) or rent 2 small cars?

Thanks for the tips/suggestions.

Jose
