Christmas in Rome Itinerary Questions

Jump to last reply

We are visiting Rome from December 25-31 with our two sons 23 and 26 yo. We want to take 1-2 day trips, Pompeii, Reggia Caserta, Ostia Ancient? Tivoli with local site seeing & shopping. Would like advice in the following loose itinerary;

December 25th
visit Jewish District (I heard it is only place open on Christmas Day) in the evening walk around see Nativity scenes near hotel (La Spagna area)

26th Legal Holiday - is Vatican Open? Planning a private tour - suggestions?

27- Shopping site seeing in Rome
Colosseum, Pantheon, Villa Borghesi
We like to explore ourselves. For which if any do
we need a guide?


28 day trip to Pompeii - planning to rent a car, do we need a tour guide once in Pompeii? What are the top spots if we'll be there approximately 4-5 hours

29 site seeing in Rome

30 1/2 day trip - Ostia Ancient (too much like Pompeii?) Or Tivoli, is it worth it inDecemver?Any other suggestions? Should we keep the car overnight and take the day trips back to back

We would also like a winery/gourmet experience. Have done Vineyards in Tuscany, do they have wine and it food tasting in Rome? but it's nice to relax with good food and wine but also learn something.

Any advice greatly appreciated.
