Rome Stories and Tips

Taking kids along

Just Do It! Are you thinking about whether it is worth taking your elementary school age (or younger) kids along on a trip to Europe? My advice is go for it! Yes, it will change the style of your trip somewhat. But in some places, it'll force you to slow down and enjoy things a little more rather than rushing from one sight to the next. Kids are amazingly adaptable. While they didn't learn the complete history of the Roman empire, our children gained an appreciation for quite a bit of art and history on our trip, we think. They enjoyed climbing through the Colosseum. While the number of museums we visited got a little much, they tolerated it pretty well. In Rome, I can particularly recommend the park around the Borghese galleries as a nice place to spend some time.
