I have a trip to Rome planned at the end of this month for 3 days, at the moment my plans look a bit like this.
Day 1: Arrive in Rome monday at 10:20, get transfers to hotel (Hotel De Rome) which is near the colosseum. Check in, eat some lunch! Around 1ish go out and do The Colosseum, The Forum, Palatine Hill and Capitoline Museum. We'll then have some dinner! Day over.
Day 2: Go to the Vatican City, do the museums, the sistine chapel and spend the whole day here. Get some food obviously along the way
Day 3: Check out Church of San Luigi dei Francesi, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain, The Spanish steps and maybe do a little bit of shopping. Pop into any other museums we like the look of. Eat early dinner, check in at the airport at 7:00pm and fly home!!
Do that all sound doable?
I have a restaurant booked for the first night but will probably (with the help of trip advisor) try some unplanned places the other nights.
My last and most important question is what is the best way to avoid massive queues for the sites I want to see? Is it worth booking any of the Vatican or The forum/colosseum in advance?
Thanks so much!
