Untours Cafe

My family has decided that our next Untour would probably be a Sicily East and Rome sampler. My main concern is Rome. I have never been to Rome and have heard that it is sometimes difficult to navigate the public transportation system. I will be traveling with my wife and two kids aged 11 and 14 and was wondering if anyone could enlighten me in regard to Rome or Sicily East. We are fairly experienced at public transportation having navigated Chicago, New York City, and Switzerland but Rome is a concern based on what I have heard. Would anyone have any suggestions as to which Untour apartment might be best in regard to finding convenient public transportation in Rome or any information on Sicily East? I would also be interested in learning about the day trips Untours provides in both Rome and Sicily East. I appreciate any help in this regard....Tom

Tom,
Much of what you are asking can be obtained with the use of Google Earth. After reading your guide books and determining what points of interest you wish to see go to Google Earth and mark these locations. You can also mark the location of the Untours apartments. I have not looked in Google to see if the public transit system has a web site but I would bet they do. It has been quite a few years since I was in Rome so I can't speak about their transit system. When I was there we parked our car and walked to most of the points of interest.

Tom,
My husband and I went to Rome as a sampler in 2005 and had no problem using the public transportation. We used mostly the metro rather then buses. Our experiece with public transportation is only when traveling, so I would say that if you can manuver Chicago and NY you won't have a problem. I would suggest Ostia Antica as a fun and interesting day trip. Fell free to ask any other questions you might have. I have not been to Sicily so can't help you there.
