Help me plan my three days in Rome, per favore

Jump to last reply

Barcelona is sorted out as are the four days in Amalfi. All that's left to figure out is Rome.

We will be there Thursday the 27th of August through late Sunday night the 30th. Four full days, one of which will be spent in Florence for the day. So really three full days. We've been a few times but not in over a decade and will be celebrating my parents' 70th birthdays as well as our 11 year old's first time to Europe. We want to make sure we go to the Vatican ( day or night tour?), the Pope's Angelus address on Sunday, the Colosseum, and hopefully the catacombs (if onlyfor the chilly air!). Initially, I had wanted to book a tour of Antica Osita because my son had read The Thieves of Ostia with his sixth grade class this past Spring, but we ended up changing our minds. Between Pompeii (which we will see from our base in Sorrento) and all the antiquities in Rome and Florence, I think he will have enough history ( at least that's what he said!).

How would you arrange the touring for the days we are there? I am thinking we will go to Florence on Saturday for the day unless someone suggests otherwise.

Grazie Mille.
