rome with kids

Rome isn’t just museums and basilicas, it’s way more! That’s why there are tons of things to do in Rome with kids to shape the best Rome family vacation!

We have written a lot of articles about kid-friendly tours in Rome: don’t worry, it’s normal, Rome is so huge and rich that sometimes it can be confusing to see through the trees and choose the best for your family. We have decided to sum up our expertise in one ultimate parents’ guide, which answers the question: how to plan flawlessly your family vacation in Rome?

One secret is to make sure that every member of your family enjoys the day: while the grown-ups might be happy to stroll for hours in a world-class museum, kids want to have fun and do something more interactive and exciting. So you’ll have to find the right compromise: for example, your children are more likely to behave well in a quick visit to a church if there is the promise of the best gelato in town afterwards.

And that’s why we, at You Local Rome, make sure that we strike the right balance: we design the best things to do in Rome with kids, combining fun moments and top attraction tours, led and told by the best child-friendly tour guides ever.
