Do the Archeo bus tour. €20 for 2 day pass on open top tour bus the archeo bus. Well worth it. Check opening times of Catacombs first as are closed from 12:30-15:30 or something like that it takes almost an hour to get there

When visiting Rome, I recommend staying at the Hotel San Carlo. The price is fairly cheap and it's located in the center of the city. The Spanish Steps are just a couple of steps away and the shopping is fabulous around there. The hotel is basically the center of all the attractions. Local restaurants are located along the small alleys and any will be fit for your satisfaction.
Rome is a place of beauty and history and when there you want to absorb it all before you leave. I would definitely recommend visiting the Colosseum and buying a ticket to go inside. However, I must warn you the line for the ticket will be very long around 1hr to 4 hrs. While at the site of the Colosseum, you should visit the Roman Forum, which is a great way to experience the way the Romans lived during their era. I would recommend you try to reserve the ticket before hand. The Vatican is also a great place to visit. The entrance into the chapel is free, however the museum will cost 16 euros. I would recommend visiting the Vatican City first, when done exploring the city you can enter the museum, which entrance is located in the back of the city. When done with the museum you will exit back to the front of the Vatican entrance where you can go into the Church. Another great place to visit would be the Pantheon. Entrance to the Pantheon is free and its a great place to experience the wonders of the Catholic religion during the Roman period. If you just want to relax and hang out with a couple of friends visit the Spanish Step, where you will find locals and tourist in the area just lounging around at night.

Rome rocks! You definitely have to go and see the Vatican, Colluseum, Forum, Pantheon and the Spanish Steps as well as that big fountain. Get to the Vatican early on one day as it will take you most of the day to go through St Peters and the Vatican galleries. Ladies, ensure you wear a long skirt/sarong or trousers as you won't be allowed in if you are wearing shorts or a mini skirt. It is massive. Often there are people (English speaking students) who are willing to give you a guided tour with explanations through St Peters for free! The statues as well as the architechure of St Peters will blow your mind while you will crack up at the strategically placed fig leaves on the statues of the males throughout the Vatican gallery corridors. When you have finished exploring St Peters Square head down to the Pantheon. I got the best cheeseburger I had in Italy at the McDonalds opposite the Pantheon. The next day get to the Colluseum early to get in line. Later in the day the lines are very long! The Colluseum is awesome and again you may be able to get a guide here, for free! Then you can go onto the Forum across the road. It has been quarried away over the hundreds of years since it lost favour as being the seat of Roman govt, but it is still impressive as your guide will tell you. Romans are crazy drivers, so watch out. Keep a sharp eye out for pickpockets and be very careful with cameras, money, passports, etc as well as your bag. Try not to be anywhere by yourself late at night or early in the morning as that is the best time for thieves to target you and more than one tourist has had a fatal swim in the Tigeres as a result. Public transport is a bit hit and miss (like the rest of the drivers), but the underground train system is good. Tourist buses are not allowed to enter the centre of Rome, so if you go on Bus About or Contiki etc it is likely you will be staying on the edge of Rome. Otherwise you will be paying extra taxi fares to get to your inner city hotel and back again to catch the bus.
