1.5 Day Rome Itinerary

Jump to last reply

My friend and I will be arriving in Rome May 20 at 11:50am so realistically after checking into hostel, etc we will not be able to start site seeing until 2:00pm. With that said, we have that half day, then the entire next day in Rome, then we fly out the next day at Noon.

Our main question is on which days should we do the two big sites - the Colosseum & the Vatican? We are debating whether to hit the Colosseum, Forum, Pantheon on that first day then do the Vatican the next morning, then wander around the rest of the day to the small sites (trevi fountain, spanish steps, etc).
OR
should we do Vatican City the day we get there then the next morning hit Colosseum, Forum, and spend the afternoon doing the small sites. Please let us know what you think, what is the most logical and time saving strategy. We realize we do not have a lot of time but these two sites are our priority. Also what are your tips on ticket buying/tours for these sites?
