I noticed from looking on Venere.com that the range of hotel prices varied from place to place.
Also, I knew that we did NOT need to have a rental car in Rome.
So, I got myself a little map of Italy and broke down how much it would cost us per day in each area.
(hotel (food, car, etc.
Flight 2x1000= 2000
Rome 5x160=800 90 80
Naples 2x200=400 90 120
Calabria2x220=440 100 120
Sicily 5x220=1100 100 120
