We will be in Rome for 4 nights, arriving on a Sunday morning (hopefully at the scheduled time of 8:25am). I don't have a good handle on how long it will take us to get to the hotel when all is said and done at the airport whether we use the train or hire a car, which our hotel will do for 40euro for the 2 of us (I believe).
I am trying to figure out what we can accomplish on this first day without feeling rushed. My original hope was to do "the Ceasar shuffle" (a la Rick Steves's guidebook), which includes most of the ancient Rome sights - Colosseum, Palatine Hill, Roman Forum, Pantheon - but I'm afraid that could be too much to try to squeeze in if we don't get going until late morning/early afternoon.
Any advice would be great!!
