You would have to book ahead for the Vatican and Sistine Chapel, I have seen queues there a mile long - no exaggeration, it took me 20 minutes to walk from the end of the queue to the top of it. You could use the metro (underground rail system) to get between the Colosseum and close to the Vatican. Personally, however, if you only have 12 hours, I'd go check out the ancient Roman ruins in the city, including the Colosseum. It's must faster to buy one ticket for the Colosseum and the Roman Forum at the entrance to the Forum, it's a short walk from the Colosseum, and you can skip the queues into the Colosseum. And they're not 10 miles apart, maybe 10 km at a stretch, which possibly 6 miles?

I have been to Rome and visited all of the above. for the colosseum allow about 2 hours if you want to enjoy the experience. The sistine chapel all depends on how long you want to stair at the painting on the ceiling. I was out after about 10 mins. The vatican on a whole is a different story. You could literally spend years at the vatican if you tried to see everything. When you compute the hour travel to and from the port,traveling from attraction to attraction, waiting in an admission line and taking time to enjoy each attraction I don't think you will really have enough time to do all of the above.That is unless you want to run like crazy and not really enjoy anything. By the way, the Vatican is very crowded. Rome is a very nice place, I tink you will like it.

The Vatican Museums - plural - will take at least half a day. Just walking from the entry to the Sistine chapel will take a half hour without looking much at the other art. The Sistine chapel is the last stop of the museum and you exit from there. It would be a shame to go there without going inside St. Peter's if the line isn't too long. It's free, there's just a security station that slows things down. We went inside the Coliseum the last time and I'll never do it again - it's fine, even better, to just look at the outside. Much more interesting is the forum across the street, which is part of the Coliseum ticket. Be aware that the Vatican and the Coliseum are about 10 miles apart - something like that. Don't forget time for lunch, you're going to need it. >And they're not 10 miles apart, maybe 10 km at a stretch, which possibly 6 miles? Bean counting. You ain't gonna be walking it.
