November in Rome

Jump to last reply

Hi all ,I got some great input a couple of weeks ago re my "tagalong" trip when my husband goes to Europe. I am meeting him at the end of his trip, in Rome. We will have 4 days in mid-Nov.

Now I am hoping for a little help fleshing out the itinerary of our days there. I have been to Italy, he hasn't. We are very active people, very curious about history and love sightseeing, but I gotta be honest. A few days checking out museums and churches is plenty for us. I would love any suggestions about unique experiences we could possibly work in. Of course we will visit the Colosseum and Pantheon, tour the Vatican / St Peters, find some good food in Travestere, wander and soak in the piazzas... and the rest will be gravy.

I don't think I visited the Catacombs before and it sounds appealing to the "unique" aspect. Do you recommend it? Is there a popular or standout tour that you went on in Rome that you tell your friends about ?

Side trips - I've been to Hadrian's Villa in Tivoli, and enjoyed that a lot. Pompeii disappointed, and I had such high expectations (I think partly I was young and went with a tour operator that really isn't my style. Visit to cameo factory and shameless plugging, trapped in a bus all day, ,just wanted that day back). Orvieto? Naples?

I can (and do) research a lot on my own, but hearing advice from fellow travelers has always gone a long way in making my plans and make trips special. I appreciate any advice!
