Itinerary-Rome with Teens

Jump to last reply

We are a family of four traveling to Italy early June 2012. We have two sons, ages 17 and 14.
This is our second trip to Europe. We love history, art, great food and absorbing the culture of the place we are visiting. We are flying into and out of Rome and will be staying in an apartment in the Piazza Navona area.
I would love some feed back on the Rome portion of our trip (I'll post Tuscany separately).

Day One: Arrive Rome at 7:45am from Atlanta- picked up by driver recommended by the apartment owner. Drop luggage at apartment. Wander, get our bearings, check out restaurants, markets, etc.
Afternoon-Borghese Gallery, other ideas?
Day Two: Tour with Walks of Italy- Ancient Rome
Afternoon-Church of San Clemente(on our own)
Day Three: Tour with Walks of Italy-Vatican and St. Peters
Afternoon-open...possibly catacombs..Could use suggestions
Day Four-This day is open. We are considering a day trip to Pompeii. My son has taken Latin for four years and the last year was based on a story of life in Pompeii. We may leave this decision until we arrive, depending on what we have seen.
Any other suggestions are appreciated.
Day Five-travel day. Pick up rental car, drive to Tuscany(outside Pienza)
Thank you to everyone, all the research I've done so far has been invaluable!

Also, when we were in London we went to Hard Rock calling in Hyde park(saw Paul McCartney) This was a blast, I'm wondering where to look to see about music festivals or concerts taking place while we are there(June 5-9)
