Italy Rome excursions

Jump to last reply

Hi all, I am overwhelmed by the amount of tour groups and sights to see in Rome.

Two places I think we should tour are the Vatican and the Colosseum. We are two adults late 40s, early 50s and two adult daughters 19 and 20. We are not big on museums, but we definitely want to visit the vatican (we are catholic).

Also, how hard is it to go to Sunday mass at the vatican?

We will be in Rome 6 nights with about 5 days to tour. I was thinking of one day going half day to the vatican and another day going half day to the colesseum. One day at a beach side town near Rome (take the train). Two days to wander Rome, see some sights on our own, watch people, etc...

Any must do's in your book. Any great tours to the above? (Good company names is appreciated) We will be there the last week of May/first week of June. Thanks so much!!!!
