I have been looking thru the forums for a clear answer to my question with little success. I know I will rent a car to tour southern Italy. I know I will be crossing by ferry to Messina to tour Sicily and then fly back to Rome and home. There seem to be issues with taking a rental car across to Messina and dropping it on the island. Are those issues modest enough to cross with the rental car or am I better off dropping the mainland car at Via San Giovanni and renting another car in Sicily for that part of my touring?
Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
