Trip to Sicily/Rome; need input

Jump to last reply

I'll be travelling with my family (wife, 3 teens and 2 parents in their 70s) to Italy in July. We'll focus on Sicily (8 days, 9 nights) and Rome (4 days, 5 nights).

Below you'll see the draft itinerary. We will have a car (Mercedez Vito) in Sicily but we are not planning to have one in Rome. I'm looking for input on:
1) places to stay
2) any suggestions you may have to add/delete/modify my itinerary (flights are already locked)
3) "must see" suggestions
