Next week, my 10 year old daughter and I will be in Rome for 3 days; what should we see?

I haven't been to Rome in over 20 years and my daughter has never been. Obviously we are going to visit the Colosseum/Forum and Vatican, however I am a little wary of dragging my daughter around a succession of crowded ruins and churches. She has a fairly high tolerance for "culture", but I'd like to break it up with something more child-friendly if possible.
Any suggestions? We will be there Wednesday-Friday (not counting arriving and leaving), in case that matters.
Bonus question: what's the best way for us to get around? Our hotel is near the Repubblica metro station, which makes it about a 20 minute walk from the Colosseum and Piazza Navona (according to Google Maps) but makes the Vatican (for example) a bit of a hike. How likely am I too be fleeced if I rely on cabs?
