It was a blast. We rented a BMW 4 from SIXT and drove around. We spent 3 days in Rome then couple of days in Rocca di Mezzo where my wife's maternal grandfather came from, then to Rossano in Calabria, close to Terranova da Sibari where her grandmother came from and then we spent 3 days in Lecce and its environs (Gallipoli, Otranto and Santa Maria de Leuca).
