“Bring the kids!” 3 suggestions to have an amazing family trip to Rome
The Eternal city may not strike at first as the most family-friendly destination for a holiday. But as with any family vacation, it only takes a little bit of imagination and some planning to create the perfect travel experience in Rome! Book things in advance, find accommodations near the Centro Storico (the main tourist area in Rome) and you’ll be set for an amazing trip. But what to do with your family while you’re here? Here are some ideas to get you excited about your visit to our beautiful city.
1. Get your dose of fresh air in our Villas
Rome is filled with beautiful parks (we usually call them Villas here), where you can either just relax under the shadow of a tree, have a picnic or enjoy a lovely stroll while looking at the art that is present also in these greener parts of the city. Bikes and Segways are usually available there to rent and have a family ride. From the majestic sights at Villa Borghese’s Pincio to the more rustic feel of Villa Ada or the mixture of lights and fresh shade at Villa Doria Pamphilj, you have plenty of places to pick to rest from your walks or get your fill of nature and quiet in the middle of the city noise.
2. The biggest and most entertaining classroom ever
Rome was called “an outdoors museum” by Alberto Sordi, a famous Italian actor. Wherever you go, art and history surround you. You’d be hard pressed to find a better and cooler learning experience. There are many ways to find tours that will suit your family’s needs, and the possibilities are almost endless when it comes to Rome, from getting to know how the gladiators prepared for battle to learning about artists, emperors, Popes and heroes that walked and lived where you’ll be. We can help you plan your trip so that you and your family won’t have to worry about anything but the beauty around you.
3. When in Rome, eat like the Romans do
No visit to Italy is complete without getting a true taste of its cuisine. And there’s probably no place in the world with more family-friendly (and delicious food) than this one. The tasting part is probably the most interesting one for many, but you can also learn how Italian food is made or even learn to do it yourself! It all makes for a fun, inspiring and unforgettable time while you’re staying here in Rome. Few things are more memorable than learning something together as a family.
