Our first time in Rome we had a group of 7 that we'd met online and put together a private tour with Driver in Rome, they were outstanding!! We saw and did a ton without much walking.
If you don't want to go the private tour route, I'd take a look at what your priorities are. Is going into the Coliseum a must, or is just seeing it a important, do you want to see the Vatican? How comfortable are you getting around Rome on your own? it's not a hard city to walk in but you'd have to cover a lot of distance. As much as I loathe them, perhaps a ships tour might be in order for you for the first time. The Pantheon is one of my favourite Rome spots.
