Three full days in Rome was enough for us.  Vatican (recommend a private tour) and the rest of the city can be covered in that time.  We stayed about 2 blocks from the Trevi Fountain which was nice.

For us, we preferred our 7 days outside of Florence (rented a villa) and get a car.  Florence is fantastic especially if you like museums/art and is a great launching point by car for Lucca, Pisa, Siena, San Gimignano, etc.

If we did it again, I would have started with Rome then Florence.  We did in reverse order and wished we would have had the time to "relax" more in Florence vs. the quick pace of Rome.  YMMV

"Character issues are a high concern in the NFL"

Can't tell if you are being sarcastic or not.......

When I lived in Atlanta in the mid 90's (had just moved there) I got pulled over for doing 70 in a 55.  Was laughing when the trooper approached my window.  She asked why i was laughing and I told her I was new to the area and did not think it was possible to get a speeding ticket in Atlanta based on what I had seen.  She laughed and let me go with a warning.

BTW, they don't have "accidents" in Atlanta.  They are "wrecks".

No carry on fees for United, American, SW, Delta, etc., although the checked bags fees are crazy.  While I get free checked bags because of status, I never check them.  Eliminates any flexibility for flight changes, waiting for bags, losing bags, etc.  I can easily pack a week in my roll a board, my challenge is traveling with Mrs. Naper.  lol

Sorry, would not know.  I have strict rules regarding flying airlines like this.  The odds of getting stuck somewhere because one of their "ten" planes broke down go up exponentially when compared to flying United, American, Southwest, etc.  Pay a little more and get a little more piece of mind. Oh, and never ever check your bags.....
