Hi J,

We went to Rome for 5 days last May, and managed to fit in:

  • Trevi fountain

  • Spanish Steps

  • Roman Forum

  • Coloseum

  • Piazza Navona

  • Vatican museums

  • St. Peter's Basilica (church, cupoula, grottoes)

  • La Boca de la Verita

Plus we did a lot of walking around, which is pretty easy to do in Rome if you can stomach the car fumes. The Vatican Museums alone take a good day - and arrive early or you'll never get in. If I'd been alone I could have fit a ton more stuff in, but we compromised and did a lot of sitting and eating and drinking, too. I found this from Fodor's that might help.

And have gelato whenever you can - there's nothing like in in the world!

Enjoy!
Tway

EUR
Campdoglio museums
Vatican (St Peter + museums; allow for at least 1 day)
Trastevere
Forum Romanum (take a guide; otherwise it's a waste of time)
Villa Borghese on sunday morning

And of course, a lot of aimless walking around... with over 400 churches, there is enough to stumble into. Try avoid the most tourist-pestered spots :)
