We will be visiting Rome in mid-March for pretty much four full days. I have a tentative itinerary and just wondered what all y'all think.
Day 1 - arrival
Scheduled to land at FCO at 8:40am - taxi to Grand Palatino after going thru Customs. Not sure if we will be able to check-in
Giardino degla Aranci
First Entry to Sistine Chapel - best way to get to meeting point by 7:15am?
11am - Scavi Tour
St Peter's Basilica
Trastevere - Santa Maria and dinner
1:30pm - Colosseum, Roman Forum, Palatine Hill tour
Piazza di Spagna
Via del Cors
Just about every day we are done with touring by 5pm which leaves the evenings free to rest, relax or head out and casually explore. My wife is interested in maybe doing a ghost tour - maybe a crypt tour?
So what say ye? We (she) isn't really too interested in art galleries or museums as much as I am which is why you don't see Borghese and the like and why we don't have much time scheduled for the Vatican Museum (I know......) At that time of year I'm thinking it might be more manageable and not quite so Griswald type touring......
