If you are lucky enough to have any time at all in Rome, there are a few things you really need to see.  Ideally,  I would recommend at least 4 or 5 days to get a nice feel for the city.  Once, we visited Rome for just a day trip excursion from a cruise, and it was very unsatisfactory.  Too much traffic, too many crowds, and not enough time!  If you truly have just the one day, it will be worth it to hire a private tour guide with skip the line access to take you around the Eternal City.  You will be eternally grateful (haha!).
