Hello folks, I have put together a rough sketch of my itinerary for my trip through Italy. I’m going this March over spring break. I plan on visiting Rome and Italy. It’s a little rushed, but I honestly am a little more fast-paced than most people, so I wouldn’t mind being kind of rushed. I mainly want to make sure that the places I want to see are feasible to visit and in similar parts of town.
Just a note: I cannot change the day that I land in Rome (Saturday at 18hr) or the day that I leave (Sunday at 4hr). I cannot change the location where I land. I’m aware that I’d save time if my flight schedule was different, but at this point I cannot change it. The flight and three nights in a Roman hostel are the only reservations that I have paid for though, so everything else is flexible.
What do you think?
Saturday: Land in Rome at 6 p.m., check into my hostel.
Sunday: Cappuchin Crypt – Museum of Rome – Borghese Gallery – Appian Way – Travastere walk (North City Center of Rome)
Monday: Colosseum, Forums, Palatine Hill, Pantheon. Pub crawl.
Tuesday: Castel Sant’Angelo – Ponte Sant’Angelo – Catacombs of Priscilla
Wednesday: Audience with the pope (I have a letter from the Vatican saying I can get tickets!), Sistine Chapel – St. Peter’s basilica – Vatican museum
