What to see in Rome in five days In the pages things to see in Rome and What see in Rome in three days we saw that only see the monuments more important, such as the Colosseum and the Sistine Chapel and a tour of the most beautiful places in the old town can will take 3-4 days.
We see here other places to see in the remaining 1-2 days available

The Via Appia Antica and the Catacombs A whole day can be dedicated to a hike along the Via Appia Antica, with a visit to the monuments that are found along the way, including the Catacombs.
The most part interesting of the Appia Antica (who originally came to Brindisi) is the stretch between Porta San Sebastiano and Via delle Capannelle.
The idea is to do it in reverse so as to arrive at the end, to the Circus Maximus, in close proximity to the Metro stop.

As we said before, there are many places of great interest to see along the Appian Way; after a few hundred meters further Villa Quintili , then after about 3 km you reach the part more rich of monuments with Villa Capo di Bove, the Mausoleum of Cecilia Metella the Circus of Maxentius .
This part is also the richest of dining options, and is best suited to take a break for lunch.
Little more forward there is the zone of the catacombs with the Catacombs of San Sebastiano and Catacombs of San Callisto , the visit of which take  at least 3 hours.
 At the end of the area of the catacombs of San Callisto, the last before the last stretch of the road, not to be missed & egrave; visit the Church of Domine Quo Vadis , where according to legend  the apostle Peter, fleeing the persecution of Nero in Rome, meet with Jesus , and called his famous question "Domine, quo vadis?"

Tip:
The starting point you can get on the train that takes you to Termini station to Nettuno and get off at the first station Torricola, otherwise taking the subway, and you can get off at Giulio Agricola lengthen the path from the Church of St. Polycarp and get on the Appian Way through the Aqueduct Park . It would extend a path already in itself 'rather long (about 15km), but save the Park really beautiful. Especially in spring.

Villa Adriana and Villa d'Este Almost an entire day it takes to visit two beautiful villas of Tivoli (in fact declared by UNESCO heritage site), also because it's outside Rome, it takes at least half an hour to reach them (in the car, a bit 'of more public transport)
As Villa Adriana will require much more; time, you can spend the morning at Villa d'Este, and then dine at one of many restaurants in the old town of Tivoli and then devote the afternoon to visit the one & egrave; the most important and complex Villa come down to us of ancient Rome ( also more great Pompeii)
Otherwise, you can go to the contrary, start from Villa Adriana, doing lunch in the Villa and then go see Villa d'Este, before ending the day with a tour and, possibly, dinner in the historic center of Tivoli.
Important
Although both sites near Tivoli they are between them more than 10km, so the only way to move from one site to the other by public transportation line local CAT Tivoli
