    Re: Cap it off:Italia

    And the winner is:............Tour 3

    14 days

    Palermo
    Monreale
    Agrigento
    Giardini Naxos
    (Mt. Etna)
    Messina
    Taormina
    Villa San Giovanni
    Matera
    Alberobello
    Salerno
    Minori
    (Amalfi Coast)
    (Pompeii)
    Sorrento Coast
    Rome

    Too much to see all at once so we put the northern tour aside for a few years and are doing the southern half of the country first. Mostly Sicily.
    Let the kids play.
