We (four of us) are planning on traveling from Athens to Palermo, Italy at the end of October 2009 to explore Sicily for four or five days. I have several questions. 1. What would be the best (shortest time; best $ value) method of travel: a) train – ferry – train or b) car – ferry – train or c) ? We will be renting a car for the time we will spend in Greece.
2. Would purchasing a Eurail Pass be worth it?
3. Can you rent a car in Greece and take it to Italy?
4. Would a trip to Naples be doable? We have roughly eight days before we have to get back to Athens.
