Advice on upcoming Italy trip please!

Jump to last reply

Hi everyone, my boyfriend and I are coming up on a trip to Italy in a couple weeks. We have some questions on some of the sightseeing tickets etc.

Rome: Do you suggest getting tickets to the Coliseum in advance before leaving? Or is there a better option?
We would also like to visit the Vatican. Is it best to purchase those in advance? I have read about the lines being long so was hoping to beat that or get a discount? For attire to the Vatican...both of us have to have covered knees and shoulders. Any tips on what the ladies do in the heat for this? Scarf/shawl? Longer dress? Are the men allowed shorts if not shorty shorts? :)

Sorrento: We would love to go see the blue grotto in Capri on a day trip from Sorrento. Has anyone done this and have any tips? Or know the costs?

Venice: Any restaurant suggestions for budget travellers?

Thanks so much in advance for any help!!!
