Option in rome, Everything You Need To Know About Public Transportation In Rome
Re: Best option to skip lines? Peter's Basilica.
The tour goes directly from the Sistine Chapel to the basilica, which saves time since normally one must go through a separate security line for the basilica. The downside is that you cannot re-enter the Vatican Museums.
But there are also multiple tour companies that offer 3 or so hour tours of the Colosseum, Roman Forum, and Palatine Hill if that works better for you and your level of interest. The places I think most benefit from a guided tour are the Roman Forum and Palatine Hill -- they are very large, complex archaeological sites where much lies in ruins so they can be hard to understand and appreciate.
So, that's where I'd splurge for a guided tour. And yes, the guidebooks will definitely help -- the more you read up in advance, I think the more you'll get out of your trip.
