Itinerary for Our First Visit to Rome

Jump to last reply

Buongiorno Fodorites! I’m planning our first trip to Italy and would love your input. I have been running ideas and reading trip reports to my husband. His philospophy is “let’s just go and experience Rome for ourselves!”. Well, I can appreciate that up to a point but I’m a girl that likes to have a plan! Or a general idea of what we should see and where we should eat. So I turn to your expertise and opinion…since my hubby is getting a little bored with my planning talk. Please take a look at my Rome itinerary and give me your honest feedback! About us; a thirty something couple (husband more relaxed than wife) who want to see the popular sites and have some memorable meals but also just have some down time for wandering.

Day 1
Arrive at FCO at 8:55pm and taxi to our B&B, Nicolas Inn. After we settle in, hopefully have the energy to check out the nearby Cavour 313.

Day 2
Bus to Testaccio for Eating Italy Tour from 10:30am to 2:30pm (already booked)
After tour, explore the neighborhood a little more before returning to Nicolas Inn to freshen up
Walk to Piazza Navona to explore area
Any dinner suggestions?

Day 2
9am to Noon - Colosseum and Forum Tour with Francesca Caruso (already booked)
Lunch at L’Asino d’Oro
Then Capitol Hill to the Pantheon, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain
Dinner ideas?

Day 3
Possible Pristine Sistine Tour at the Vatican with Walks of Italy (not booked, just an idea)
Lunch at Pizzarium
Walk to Trastavere to explore
(since the Pristine Sistine tour starts at 7:45pm, this could be a long day…maybe head back to Nicolas Inn for a siesta?)
Tram or bus to Cesare al Casaleto for dinner

Last Day
Check out of Nicolas Inn, cab to Termini and train on to Orvieto for next leg of trip.

I would also like to include the Borghese Gallery and National Museum of Rome in our itinerary but not sure if it’s feasible? Metamorfosi, Glass and La Taverna dei Fori Imperiali (especially since it’s near our B&B) also caught my attention. Lastly, I hope we are able to visit with the kitties at Largo di Torre Argentina.

Anyway, thank you in advance for any advice! Grazie!
