5 days in Rome-help me plan our days

Jump to last reply

Need help in planning our 5 days in Rome, in June 2014. DH and teenage boys (16 and 18). I spent 2 days in Rome 25yrs ago. First trip for everyone else. Also dining suggestions for filling budget meals. The boys love to eat and are bottomless pits. They are not picky eaters and will eat anything.

Sunday-arriving 7:30 am-would like to go to Noon Mass at St Peters or another Basicala , get out and walk, Spanish Steps, etc. staying Campo de' Fiori (apartment) , will allow us to drop luggage
Monday-Ancient Rome, tour of Colosseum
Tuesday-Vatican, Sistine Chapel-tour, climb to the roof St. Peters,
Wednesday-Pope
Thursday-Pompei-long day but boys want to go or should they go on Tuesday.
Friday-take bus to Siena for 4 nights

Other interests catacombs, aquaducts. I might not go to Pompei (went there 25yrs ago) and go to the Vatican gardens and Villa Borghese (requires reservations) by myself. Husband and kids are OK with that.
We want to go to Mass at St Peters on another day if we don't go on Sunday. Don't want to over book our days. Have not booked any tours.
Best place to buy religious articles?
Thanks
