Last Minute Advice needed for Rome

Jump to last reply

My wife and I will be in Italy from June 1st - 14th. Our schedule for the first few days in Rome were scheduled doing:

June 1st: Traveling to Italy.
June 2nd: Arrive in Rome at 8:10. Buy Roma Pass. Go to Hotel to drop off luggage. Visit Ancient Rome. (Colosseum, Roman Forum, etc.)
June 3rd: Borghese Gallery, 11:00 Tour. (Already purchased tickets). Evening Vatican Tour. (Already purchased tickets).
June 4th: National Museum of Rome. Baths of Diocletian. Appian Way.
June 5th: Pompeii Day Trip. (Train tickets already purchased).

I just found out that due to the June 2nd National Holiday that the area around the colosseum is a zoo due to a parade. My only option would be to swap the Ancient Rome visits with the June 4th National Museum and Baths of Diocletian visits. However, the purpose of doing Ancient Rome on the first day was to take advantage of skipping the long Colosseum lines with the Roma Pass. If I buy the Roma pass on June 2nd and use them for National Museum of Rome and Baths of Diocletian, then I'll have to stand in the long lines at the Colosseum to get my discounted tickets.

Thoughts about how to change this? If I kept the itinerary as is, would the crowds be that much worse on June 2nd? Or if I swap it, should I just not bother with the Roma Pass and go with a tour through the colosseum to bypass the crowds?
