Could you please have a look at the itinery I have created for siteseeing in Rome and give your advice on whether this is possible to do during the Easter Weekend, (as I have since found out that this is busier and more crowded than Christmas). Many thanks!
Friday 21st March -
Flight Arrives @ 21:50pm - Fiumicino Airport
Collect bags, buy a 3 day Roma Pass at the Tobacco Store (if open), get the train to Termini Station, walk to nearby budget accommodation (Hotel Lucia), check in then collapse ready for an early start!
Saturday 22nd March -
Arrive at the Vatican very early (7:00am - 8:30am) hopefully for a guided tour direct from the Vatican (still waiting for a confirmation), St Peter's Square/Basilica, Castel Sant' Angelo (depending on time), Piazza Navona and the Pantheon.
Sunday 23rd March -
Another early start arriving at the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Palatine Hill, the Colosseum and the Forum (if there is time) take a look at any other sites in the vicinty such as another museum, head back for dinner and a short rest before revisiting the Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain etc at night.
Monday 24th March -
Flight Departs @ 12:50pm
Take a quick look at the Jewish Ghetto before getting the train back to the airport.
I appreciate this will not be a relaxing weekend away but with so little time I would like to cram in as much as possible for my partner's surprise birthday trip to Rome.
