Vatican is a must see. Apart from the main tourist attractions just wander the city and soak up the atmosphere, enjoy some amazing food.

5 days is a long time to spend in Rome.

Get yourself one of the DK books guides to Rome http://www.dk.com/uk/search/?searchterm=rome
A metro pass is a must and I would advise eating at the Pizza places that you can buy it by the weight/piece during the day and a nice meal out at night at the restaurants down the side streets as they are cheaper.
If you see Italians eating in them then you know its good and cheap.

Be careful as there are loads of refugees sleeping on the floors around Rome, specially near the Termini train station and don't let them help you with the ticket machines.
#10
Just do as the Romans do.
#11
Be very careful on the metro and do not anyone help you as the other post says or they will demand money and can get very aggressive and they are dressed like the staff. This is the cheapest way to get around but you can use an unlimited hop on hop off bus ticket for the day, these buses are all parked just down from the Vatican.
I would do some research on trip advisor as to what you like, coliseum is a must IMO but get a guided tour, I can't remember what it is called but opposite the coliseum there is another place to visit that is free with your coliseum ticket and that's worth a visit.The Vatican is nice if you are into painted ceilings but when we went after queuing for 1hr 20 mins to get in I was disappointed but it was so hot and busy.
#12
Be aware of pickpockets as I had my phone lifted a few years ago.

Are the train routes complicated?

Well in that case just be aware when using public transport especially when getting on and off and if you are suddenly blocked a known tactic as the squeeze.I used the most pickpocketed bus every day and never had any issues..Also do be aware of babies being used by mothers as shields so they can get close to their intended victim.Definitely invest in a bodywallet.I am sure you will have a great time rome is an amazing city to explore day and night.
I am sure everything will be fine and have a great time.

The train routes are easy to work out and there are plenty of staff to ask if you need to.

I go almost yearly as I have family in Italy.

Rome is a bit like London in that it's not a true reflection on the country.

This should help me too. I'm also going in January but I will only get around 2 full nights!
