It seems like Rome doesn't really have a "low" season anymore, and there can be lines for the Colosseo and Vatican Museums even in early December -- but they are nothing like the lines during summer! That being said, we've gone to the Vatican Museums in early December and it has been only a few minutes wait, and if you go in the afternoon the crowds are often reduced as well. Nonetheless, you may want to consider the "skip the line" tickets available at both the Colosseo (combination ticket for the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill) and the Vatican Museums if you are worried about lines, especially since it is so easy to purchase them on line. Here are the websites:

Personally, I think early December is a great time to be in Rome. It's before the high Christmas season but the Christmas market at Piazza Navona will already be open. The weather is normally relatively mild (although no one can predict what the weather will be for your trip) and i've found it's easier to walk into restaurants without a reservation during that time. And smaller museums can be almost empty -- we've ad a few all to ourselves.

Hope this helps and have a great trip!
