(Almost) Day and a half in Rome

Jump to last reply

We will be landing in Rome around 9am on a Friday and taking a Mediterranean cruise leaving at 7pm the next day (so we need to be on board by 5:30pm). We are considering the following itinerary for our (almost) day and a half in Rome. I would appreciate any thoughts on whether this is realistic, or if we should be concerned about timing for the first day and making it to the port on time the second day. I think the two things we want to see most are the Colosseum/Roman Forum and the Vatican museums. Thank you!

Day One - Arrive around 9am, take a train to Termini, our hotel is a 5 min walk from Termini. Hoping to check-in/drop luggage by 11:30am (realistic?). As long as everything is on time, would like to see the Pantheon and grab lunch somewhere nearby or on the way to Vatican City (but would be willing to skip the Pantheon if short on time). We plan to take a 3 hour tour of Vatican museums/St. Peter's starting at 2:30pm. Then head to dinner (in Trastavere?). Would like to go to the Trevi Fountain after dinner, then back to hotel.

Day Two - Would like to see Colosseum/Roman Forum in the morning before leaving for the port. I would really love to do an underground tour (is it worth it?), and found a 3 hour tour of both the underground and Roman Forum that would go from 8:30 - 11:30.

Could we realistically take that tour, be back at our hotel around noon, take a train by 1pm, make it to the port by 2:30ish? To me it seems like this would leave us plenty of time, but a few friends have suggested that we may not be leaving ourselves enough time. I appreciate any guidance/suggestions!
