Rome Itinerary gaps, advice?

Jump to last reply

I've been reading this forum for some time and even more so as our Italian adventure draws near. For background I will be traveling with my husband and 2 sons ages 18 and 21. This will be our first time to Rome. Here's what we have planned so far:

Day 1, Sunday. Arrive FCO @ 10:30 am. Transfer to apartment near Campo De Fiori. Walk around Pantheon, Piazza Navona, Trevi fountain. Dinner. Gelato. :)

Day 2, Monday. 10 am group Food tour in Campo De Fiori, approx. 3 hours. We're really looking forward to this outing. We're not foodies but we do love to eat and I hope it will be a perfect introduction to the city. Our afternoon and evening are unplanned... do you have suggestions? Trastevere? Anything that young men might especially enjoy?

Day 3, Tuesday. Early morning, get to Vatican City early for first entry into Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel & St Peters with group tour, approx 3 hrs. After that our day is unplanned.. what can we do that wouldn't involve miles&miles of additional walking? We've never been to Rome before and I'm trying not to plan too much, allowing time to savor, but I don't want to plan too little either. In the evening, I'm thinking about a taxi ride around the city and up to Gianicolo hill to enjoy the city lights.

**Btw, I don't have specific meals or specific restaurants planned for any day, and I'd welcome suggestions for reasonably priced family fare.

Day 4. Wednesday. Get to Colosseum early for 8:30 am group tour including underground, Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill. Approx 3 hrs. Afternoon unplanned but I'm thinking Capitoline Hill and visit the museum.

Day 5. Thursday. Train to Florence @ 9:45AM. This will be our first time on the trains. How early should we arrive at Roma Termini before the train? Half an hour?

Thanks so much for your help. I look forward to your advice!
