Rome Itinerary Critique

Jump to last reply

Hi all- I was hoping if anyone had a free moment to critique my Rome itinerary. I'd like to know if I have packed too many things into each day. My husband and I have never been to Rome and we plan on going from morning to dinner each day (we'll see what happens once we are there)Are there things I should drop/add? Thank you for your time.
