We are booked for RS Sicily tour which starts March 28. We are planning to get to Palermo a day or 2 before that. Any thoughts on whether it is better/cheaper/easier to book a flight into Palermo and out of Rome, or do a RT to Rome and book a flight to Palermo separately? My initial searches show that the RT to Rome and separate flight to Palermo would be cheaper - but booking it all together (via one site or airline) might be better/easier.
For the end of the trip, we plan to fly to Naples from Catania (end point of the tour) and take a ferry to Sorrento for a few days before flying home via Rome, etc.
