Ostia Antica Decorated Houses + Rome tour times + Spello or Spoleto

Jump to last reply

A couple of questions as I finalize the Rome part of our itinerary and have to book tickets (the underground Colosseum tour almost sold out our dates). Has anyone seen the decorated houses at Ostia Antica? I am thinking of calling to see if we can get on the tour.

Our basic itinerary end of May for 2 active 60-yr-olds, my second trip, his first:

Fri afternoon - arrive FCO, hotel near Opera House. Evening (if energy): Santa Prassede and/or Santa Maria Maggiore facade lit.

Sat: Morning – Trevi Fountain, Pantheon, Santa Maria Sopra Minerva, Piazza Navona, Campo di Fiori , Ponte S. Angelo view.
Afternoon - what time book Vatican museum 2:00? 2:30pm? want as late as possible as sime people leave, but enough time to make it to the Chapel. Then St Peters.
Eve - take a scenic bus route or Pincio view or collapse at hotel

Sun: Morn – Ostia Antica (decorated houses 10:30)
After - Appia Antica + Parco degli Aquadotti
Eve - views along river or Aventine Hill or Pincio or collapse

Mon: Morn - Forum area + Victor Emmanuel monument
After - what time to book Colosseum underground & third ring? Is 12:20pm giving enough or too much morning time for Forum? + St Pietro in Vincoli
Eve - Trastevere or whatever missed or ?

Tues: Morn - Borghese Gallery 9-11 (still deciding) or Baths of Diocletian or Palazzo Massimo

I would usually book first each day, then rest free, but my goals are to work around crowds and possible heat, so I going for outside and open areas in the morning and inside and more shady in the afternoon, Vatican later in the day.

Whenever we finish, regional train from Termini to a smaller town for 2 nights + 1 day of walking outside of town. Had chosen Spello, but now leaning toward Spoleto. Opinions welcome.
