For our upcoming trip to Rome I have one day planned where we want to see the main ancient Rome sites, as well as a couple of churches in the same area that seem interesting.
These are the sites: Forum, Palatine Hill, Colosseum, Saint Peter in Chains and San Clemente Church.
My questions is, considering crowds (we are visiting in late mid-late June, heat, opens and closing times, etc, in what order should we visit these sites? We will probably be walking from our hotel near the Pantheon and perhaps using a taxi to return.
Also, any ideas for a casual lunch break? And if I am missing anthying in the area that you think we could fit in, please let me know.
