Your Coliseum tour shouldn't take 2 1/2 hrs of your time---they always


include a tour of the gardens & Palentin Hill, which is adjacent to the Coliseum as part of the "Coliseum tour." The part actually in the Colliseum is only about an hour, & that's the part you want to see. Book the Coliseum tour where touring the Coliseum is the first part of the tour (sometimes it's the second half). Then skip the rest of it & do other stuff in Rome more worthwhile.
And the Vatican is a full day deal----you are shortchanging yourself if you spend less than that in the Vatican....it's incredible and you will be sorry if you only spend a few hours there. So much great stuff to see.
