Rome/Venice Itenerary

Jump to last reply

I have some questions about an itenerary, any help would be greatly appreciated. I have booked my trip for early May for 9 nights. It will be just my husband and me and we are in our late 30's and 40's. Our must-do's are Colosseum, Vatican, Pompeii and Venice Gondola ride.

Day 1 : We will be arriving at FCO at 9:25 on a Tuesday, I was considering Hotel Rex for budget and location purposes. I plan to use the subway to get into town and walk to the hotel from the train station. After checking into hotel, use the rest of the day to familiarize ourselves with the area and explore nearby sites.

Day 2: I am thinking either early morning Skip the line tour of Colosseum that includes lower lever and third tier then spend the rest of day exploring Roman Forum area. Or, Hop on Hop off bus

Day 3: Travel day to Venice- early morning train and arrive in Venice (2 nights) in afternoon, early enough to explore on our own. Thinking about the La Locanda di Orsaria for hotel for budget and location (next to train station).

Day 4 : 9 am Dark Rome Skip the Line Best of Venice tour which includes St Mark's Basilica second floor terraces and Doge's Palace (debating on whether to skip Doge's Palace) 3.5 hours Spend rest of day on our own and at 7 pm do another Dark Rome tour- Secret Venice By Night and shared gondola ride

Day 5 (Sat) Travel day back to Rome - trying to decide whether to take early train back to Rome or spend 1/2 day in Venice then arrive back in Rome late.

Day 6 Sun - HOHO / Colosseum ( if not done on day 2) or Viator Pompeii/Naples day tour

Day 7 Mon HOHO- Colosseum tour or Pompeii tour whichever not done previously

Day 8 Tues : Dark Rome Vatican Tour-- Either No wait Access Early entry 8:10am or No wait - 9am both 3 hours Is the early entry tour worth the extra money? How much time should we allow for exploring the rest of Vatican City?

Day 9 Wed-- Rome -- maybe train to Ancient Ostia

Day 10 -- fly home 11:00

Is that reasonable? Any comments or suggestions are appreciated.
Thanks
