First of all, it's always better to book everything in advance. I would recommend to book 2 months in advance for transport and accommodation. Here's the list of things you need to book:

Transportation

How to arrive:

If you travel from other cities in Italy, you can choose between the following options:

Flixbus : If you have more time and have no concern about the time spent travelling to destination, this is the best option.

Ryanair : Another budget option with faster travel time. Keep in mind that you need to pay for additional baggage other that small bag/bag pack, so that would change the price if you don't travel light

Italo : Cheaper fast train compared to Trenitalia. This is my favorite option if you travel within Italy.

Trenitalia : Offers more destination from/to small towns, also across European countries. The regional train costs less than fast train option (Freccia)

NCC: If you travel in group within Italy and prefer to rent a car with driver, this is a convenient option.

Best option to move around the city:

1. Public transport

The most convenient way is by downloading app MooneyGo

The transportation company is called ATAC and you can choose between 100minutes (1 metro trip) ticket that cost €1,5 or buy the 24hours ticket. If public transport will be your main option then the 24hours option is the best option for you.

2. Taxi

Download app FreeNow or itTaxi, both will let you easily book & schedule booking a taxi in Rome

Even though there are also options of bike sharing or scooter sharing, I wouldn't really recommend since they are not the safest options. The streets in city center are mostly made by black large blocks which are slippery when they are wet and that Rome is famous for the dangerous holes in their streets. 

Accommodation

Camplus Hotel Roma Centro
@travelwithflavor
A great option if you are in a tight budget. Very close to the central station, and it will take you to Colosseo Metro stop in less than 10 minutes.

If you're looking for other options, I crafted a free guide about best hotels in Rome for budget, moderate to high end options. These are places where my family, friends, or important guests* stayed and had great experience.

*I used to work in the embassy and had experiences in arranging accommodation for government executive visitor, so also the high-end options in the guide are carefully curated too.

Day 1

Spend your day in the city center area.

📍Colosseo (Colosseum). If you travel with public transport then go to Colosseo Metro B stop.

Since this is itinerary of short trip, I would recommend you enjoy Colosseo only from outside. The line to get inside can be long and spending time inside can consume so much time.

📍Walk through the famous street of Fori Imperiali. 

Via dei Fori Imperiali
@travelwithflavor
The view is amazing. You will see Roman ruins on both sides of the streets. After you walk a while, don't forget to look back, you will see beautiful view of Colosseo.

📍Your next stop is Piazza Venezia, with a building that is known also as Typewriter building because of the overall shape of it. At the front yard of the building, inside the gate there is the eternal flame that is always on, guarded by 2 armed soldiers.

By this time, you might be hungry already! Let's go to the dinner place. You can choose between Felice a Testaccio or Trattoria Pennestri, but in both cases, remember to book the place at least a week in advance. You can try your luck and go show, but no guarantee that you'll get a place.

🚶🏻You have two options to go there, you can walk around 1 km directly to the restaurant (both are close to each other). Otherwise, walk to Metro stop Circo Massimo, and take the metro direction Laurentina until Piramide stop, then walk a bit from there.

🍝Felice a Testaccio is famous for their Caccio e Pepe pasta. The waiter will mix the cheese in the pasta in front of you on the table if you order this dish. Also, try their lamb chop, it's a traditional Roman dish as well, and they do it very well.
