    I would add Camp dei Fiori and Piazza and Palazzo Farnese to your visit to Piazza Navona. I would also return to Piazza Navona to photograph the fountains illuminated at night. Also, I would add Largo Argentina (ruins of 4 Roman temples mostly from the Republican period) and less than 5 minutes walk from there in the little Piazza Mattei, the Fountain of the Turtles, which combines the use of both bronze and marble.

    If you have time on your Colosseum day, go to the Basilica of San Clemente, which is about a 7-8 minute walk from the Colosseum. There are 3 levels of excavations: at street level there is a 12th-century basilica, with the most beautiful mosaic in the apse which is rich in Christian symbolism. Below that is a 4th century church and below that are two Roman buildings from the 1st century AD, the first, partial remains of an apartment house with a Mithraic shrine inserted into the courtyard. There is a Roman brick stamp 3 or 4 steps from the bottom of the access stairs on the right side of the step. Also barely peaking through the floor of the apartment house are the tops of the walls of earlier Roman buildings. The other building is a Roman warehouse. The two buildings are separated by an alley.
