Another amazing adventure in Rome is a wine tasting through Vino Roma.  And you might consider the Secret Garden Tour with Lisa.  A good way to wrap up a day in Rome is with dinner at La Pergola, the best hotel restaurant proven by their three-Michelin stars.   Reservations are a must, as are jackets for the men.
