Need help with 2.5 days Rome itinerary

Jump to last reply

So here's a rough plan, need feedback on places I could add/remove, or change the order of visiting. I would be traveling in mid december, so days are short.I also need tips on finding good view points, closer to the places I'm visiting.

Day 0(sunday): Should reach hotel by 1 PM,should be done with lunch by 2PM. Hotel' near Termini.

So would start with visiting the Basilica Papale di Santa Maria Maggiore since its closeby, proceed to the Pantheon and then the Piazzas(Navona, Campo di Fiori), then Trevi fountain. Return at night.

Day 1(monday): Vatican(or do I go on a tuesday, since sunday's a holiday and monday might be crowded?

Reach the museums early in the morning, visit the sistine chapel, and then St.PEters, climb up, which is the best time to climb up, to get good pictures? I assume a lot of my day would be spent here. Anymore recommendations for Vatican would be great. Is Vatican interesting or atmospheric after dark, like walking around long corridors? Perhaps visit Castelo Angelo while returning back.

Day 2: Start with the colosseum, forum, baths of Carcalla(dont want to miss this). 1-2 cathedrals as well. And perhaps hang around some pizzas in the evening, watch the Colosseum lit up at night.

I want to spend evenings taking pictures, so want to be at places with good views, any suggestions on that would be great.
