Packed with things to do for all ages, Rome is a super family friendly city. In fact, Italians love children and it's not uncommon for a cute kid to stop them in their tracks on the street. The eternal city is abundant with art, history and culture and museums are on the list of top attractions for just about any visitor guide.
Rome even has its own kids museum. Explora Children's Museum is the perfect place in Rome for kids offering a range of hands-on activities and a mini life-like city featuring a post office, bank and supermarket where children (12 and under) can live like a grown up for the day. The museum organises reading activities and group fun for babies and toddlers focussed on art and science.
Take the kids back in time with a history lesson on Ancient Rome at the Capitoline Museum where they'll see the famous she-wolf sculpture inspired by the legend of the founding of Rome. Or treat them to a feast for the eyes with Caravaggio and Bernini masterpieces of Villa Borghese Gallery, perfectly located for a picnic and outdoor fun.
The kids will love exploring the old secret passage at Castel Sant Angelo. For a contemporary feel, head to MACRO or MAXXI, complete with a children's outdoor courtyard.
Whatever museum you decide to include on your Rome visit with the kids, be sure to visit the websites first for information on any upcoming children's activities like dedicated play zones, exhibitions or reading sessions.
