Rome Itinerary -- done my homework, please comment

Jump to last reply

Two couples traveling to Rome after touring Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast with an organized tour group. We were last in Rome for a short visit in 2002 and the other couple has never been. We will have three full days to sightsee. Some things are already booked and cast in stone. Everywhere else, there is a lot of flexibility. I am open to any and all suggestions for improvement and have also posted a few specific questions. We will be staying at the Hotel Due Torri near Piazza Navona. Thank you!

Restaurant suggestions and suggestions for the evenings particularly welcome!

DAY 1 - SUNDAY, MAY 31
Train arrives from Naples @ 2:30; Get to and settle in hotel.
Afternoon - Walk historic area
--Piazza Navona
--Church of St. Agnes
--Church of San Luigi dei Francesi
--Pantheon (inside will be closed)
--Santa Maria Sopra Minerva
--Church of Sant' Ignazio
--Parliament
--Trevi Fountain (yes, I know it's under construction)
--Spanish Steps
Evening - Open to suggestions, may opt to eat near our hotel. Any suggestions?

DAY 2 - MONDAY, JUNE 1
8:00 - Walk to Spanish Steps Metro, take Metro to Cavour stop. Walk to St. Peter in Chains Church. Walk to Colosseum.
Tour Colosseum on our own.
Walk to San Clemente Church. Tour the upper and lower church before closing at 12:30.

Walk to St. John Lateran Church and also see the Scala Santa.

Rest up and have a nice lunch in this area. QUESTION: Any suggestions for lunch options?

AFTERNOON – Walk or taxi to Forum entrance near the Colosseum. Explore the Forum on our own. See Vittorio Emanuele II monument. Evening is open. Suggestions??

DAY 3 - TUESDAY, JUNE 2
MORNING - Tour Pantheon
Walk or taxi to Vatican Museum. Eat lunch before touring the museum. QUESTION: I read in another post of having pizza al Tonglio on via della Grazie. Anyone have more information about this lunch option? Other suggestions near Vatican Museum?

12:30 Tour of Vatican Museum and St. Peter's Basilica with A FRIEND IN ROME -BOOKED
EVENING: Open. QUESTION: Any suggestions??

DAY 4 - WEDNESDAY, JUNE 3
MORNING - Walk to Borghese Gallery via Piazza del Popolo.
10:30 - Arrive at Gallery for 11:00 tour. QUESTION: Is there still an English docent led tour at 11 am? I have not booked the Gallery time yet, but I think this will be the best arrangement.

Midday: Lunch after the Gallery. QUESTION: Anyone have any lunch recommendations in this area? Taxi back to Hotel

LATER AFTERNOON: Trastevere Walk
--Cross Ponte Cestio
--St. Cecilia Church (open 16:00 - 18:30)
--Santa Maria Trastevere
EVENING: Open in Trastevere. Taxi back to hotel. Pack for return trip home.

QUESTION: Roma Pass??? I am thinking No.

Thanks in advance for your help and suggestions.
