Vatican or Colosseum, which is better to visit the day we land??

Jump to last reply

We will land in Rome from the US Aug 17th morning around 7 am. Our hotel is very close to Vatican. Since Vatican might be too crowed on Sunday, I am wondering if we should visit Vatican on the 17th ? or am I better off doing Colosseum and forum on the day we land ?

We are travelling with our daughters (11 and 13 years) who are very well traveled, but nevertheless want to make sure its a good experience for the family.

We will be in Rome till the 20th evening. What would you recommend we visit on the day we land and potentially space the other sights spread out the rest of the time we are in Rome ?

FYI: Planning to buy the roma pass when we land there.

Looking forward to hearing from y'all.
