7 days in Rome-too much?

Jump to last reply

Hello, please help!

My husband and I are attending a convention in Belgium and since we have never been to Italy and he's grandparents are from Italy we decided to spend an extra 7 days in Rome. we booked our plane tickets and will be in Italy from July 7-14th.

The question is should we do several day trips outside of the city or just soak in Rome and the surrounding areas for a week. We are big history, museum buffs and don't mind sitting on public transportation for an hour or two or more. We also wouldn't mind an early start. Several people have told us that we shouldn't stay in Rome the whole time and that its a shame to waste all that time in Italy on one place. I would loath to keep packing and unpacking though. Any suggestions?

Also should we rent an apartment or hotel?

thanks, Andy.
