While aimlessly wandering in Venice, do not miss the Frari church w/Titian's Assumption and the Pesaro Madonna and,around the back of it, San Roch w/Tintoretto's Crucifixion. Have a great trip

I just got back from Rome, it was a quick trip but the sights were amazing! I only have a couple of suggestions really! When you are in the Vatican, if you are up for a bit of a treck(its not that bad with a couple stops on the way), go up to the Cupola at the top of St. Peters Basillica, the view is amazing and worth it! You can see everything from the top, and the view down the Square is gorgeous. We did it right at sunset and got an amazing view, but you have to be careful as they closed right then. The price is 7 euro, and the entrance to go up is next to the entrance to the Popes Tomb.

Also, the best advice I got, was buy a Romapass! They can be bought at any Tabacchi shops(shops with a blue T displayed outside). They cost 20 euro and are completely worth it, especially with what all you are going to see. If you go to the Colleseum and the Borghese Gardens it will pay for itself, as the first two public attractions you go see will be free and the rest(except for at the Vatican) are at a discount. And it allows you free access to all public transport. Other than that, my suggestion is have fun!

Amazing! I am going as well at the end of March and many of the things you are doing and received advice on are what I am doing - thank you to you and all the readers who gave feedback!

A couple of tours we added based on all the threads and advice from this sight:

1. After hours vatican tour
2. Cooking & chianti tour / class in Florence

A question though: did you purchase your train tickets in advance?
