The Borghese Gallery only takes reservations because there is a certain amount people allowed at a time. Vatican museum lines can get ridiculous and a reservation is a good idea. From what I hear, November is a less busy time to go.

Same with the Scavi tour under St. Peter's. You have to reserve in advance.

Reserve ahead also for the Colosseum Underground Tour. This plus the 2 above are all I think you need advance reservations for.

If you have difficulty making any of the reservations, you can ask your hotel to book for you, just give them a day and a time window. There is usually a long line for the Vatican Museums in the mornings. Sometimes there is a very short one later in the day. Monday is the worst day to visit: closed on Sunday so there's a "backed-up" factor plus all the other museums are closed. Wednesday afternoons are often crowded if there's a papal audience in the morning - but the morning will be relatively empty for just that reason.
