The Italian city of Rome is a fantastic place to visit – full of rich history, art, architecture, and of course, delicious food! When it comes to visiting Rome with kids, there are so many great family-friendly attractions sure to keep every member of your family happy. Older kids will particularly love Rome’s history and culture. Art lovers can take a trip to one of Rome’s art museums, like the Borghese Art Gallery, and view works by renowned artists including Titian and Raphael. Or, visit the city’s famous ancient ruins – from the Colosseum to the Pantheon – and you’re sure to learn a lot about life as an ancient Roman. Then, younger kids can become gladiators for a day with an immersive class at the Gladiator School of Rome! To learn how to make some delicious Italian and Roman delicacies, however, we recommend for little ones to take a pasta and pizza class from some of the city’s most talented chefs. Or, explore Rome’s history by foot. Make a wish and toss a coin into the Trevi fountain, climb up the Spanish Steps, or visit ruins in a more unique way at the Torre Argentina, a cat sanctuary set amongst Rome’s historic architecture. But if you want a unique experience, bring your kids to the Time Elevator Rome 5D Ride and History Simulator. Of course, be sure to stop for some Gelato along the way! Whatever you plan to do in Rome, it’s sure to be an unforgettable experience for you and your entire family.
