Feeling overwhelmed planning for Rome leaving SUNDAY!

Jump to last reply

I feel much like I did before taking an exam I did not study for - unprepared.

We are leaving for a 6 night visit to Rome with possibly on day in Florence. I feel like I have failed to do nearly enough reading/planning. I have booked a tour with Dark Rome for the Coloseum (my 10 year is eager to see it and I wanted to get it right). Other than that I planned to book train tickets to Florence, book a time at the Borghese and book a private Vatican tour. However, looking at the weather - rain all week I held off. I wanted to make sure we werent stuck inside if there ended up being a sunny day in there somewhere.

What are the chances the vatican tours or borghese will be fully booked? Should I just go ahead and get them booked before I leave? Or do it at arrival through hotel?

Anyone have any details about Culture Week? I am happy to hear much will be free admission! WOndering about extra events or openings.

Other than that I just wish I knew more of the history of Rome than I do so we can get a lot out of the trip.

I guess I would feel better with a few recommendations for great restaurants that a ten year old would like (we are staying near Spanish Steps).
Some reassurance that I do not need to know everything before we get there.

Thanks!

Amy
