5 days in Rome - Itineray Suggestions??

Jump to last reply

My sister and I are flying to Rome May 23, but going directly to Civitavecchia for one night then leaving on the 25th on a Western Mediterranean cruise returning on June 1. We are staying in Rome until June 6, have decided to not do any side trips but try to get as much out of Rome as we can in those few days. We are both in our mid 50's and quite mobile, so can walk around to see things up close rather than driving on buses all the time.
Our last night we are booked into a hotel near the airport for convenience, but from the 1st to the 4th we are staying at a hotel about 20 minutes walk from the Colosseum.

We have booked the OMNIA Vatican and Rome card which includes the hop on hop off tour for 3 days, as well as access to public transit, and fast track admission to several major attractions, St Peter's, the Vatican museum, the Colosseum, Forum, etc.

Any suggestions as to order of visits, must see's, best times of the day to go to different attractions, etc. We want to experience Rome, not just jam in as many attractions as possible, so don't necessarily want to see everything, we want to also enjoy seeing the places we visit. Just walking around looking at the ancient architecture will be astounding!
I appreciate any input and suggestions!! Thanks!
