My husband and I are visiting Rome arriving on June 8th. Since we are arriving before lunch and staying near Piazza Navona, we will spend the rest of the day exploring that area, the Spanish Steps, etc. The 10th will be spent at the Colisseum, Roman Forum, etc. I have made reservations for that. We are spending the morning of the 9th at the Vatican. I have made reservations to speed up the process. I think we have time for a half-day trip to either Ostia or Villa d'Este, but I can't decide which! We both enjoy beautiful scenery, as we are amateur photographers. I am leaning toward Ostia due to the interesting pictures I have seen, but we are visiting Pompeii on the morning of the 11th on our way out of Rome, and I wonder if both would be overkill. Any advice?
Thanks, the Canadys
