Rest until 3pm ish (as will have been awake since 4am !!)
Explore surrounding area near hotel
Food Tour 6pm - 10pm
Colleseum/Paletine Hill/Forum 10 - 1pm (is this enough time)
Rest btwn 2pm - 4pm
Shopping at outlet store Castle Roman
Dinner (suggestions of nice restaurants)
Vatican City what is the best time to go when the crowds are smaller ?
This will be the only tour we schedule for this day as will be enough for my parents as is a long tour 3 hours + ?
Suggestions for morning or afternoon depending on when we do Vatican
Would it be beneficial for us to buy the Romapass. If so will do the hop on hop off bus tour today and see where it takes us !!
Chill out at hotel and get ready for flight home.
Any suggestions or recommendations would be appreciated.
