Although Vatican City is not technically part of Rome, this is a must visit one-of-a-kind site. St. Peter’s Basilica dates back to the 16-17th centuries and is one of the most famous structures in the world. Head inside and don’t forget to visit the top for a great view over the city. St. Peter’s Square will be a highlight of your trip, and if you’re lucky you may even see the Pope. Make sure you visit the Vatican Museum, home to the world famous Sistine Chapel as well as many other significant works of art.
The city’s old buildings are what bring a lot of tourists to Rome. The Pantheon, a remarkably well-preserved building that dates back to 120 A.D., is an essential visit. Try and visit when it’s raining, as the rain will fall through the opening at the top to create an eerie atmosphere. The Colosseum is an essential stop, as is a trip to the famous Trevi Fountain. The Roman Forum, a large space not far from the Colosseum, used to be where Roman citizens would congregate to meet, talk and exchange ideas. It now lies in ruin, but with a bit of imagination you can picture what it used to be like.
What to Do in Rome With Kids: Gladiators, Parks, and Ice Cream
1. Gladiator School and Museums
Start your exploration at the Forum, the largest ancient Roman site. Then take your children to the Gladiator School and Museum where they can witness life as a gladiator and take a short gladiator training session, which includes a costume. Straight after, take them to the Colosseum to let them put their gladiator knowledge into practice.
2. Family Tour of the Vatican City
Take a tour where a knowledgeable guide will tell you about the St. Peter's Basilica with entertaining stories. Don’t miss a visit to the Trevi Fountain and the Mouth of Truth. At the Trevi Fountain, your children can have fun throwing coins in the water and making wishes. The Mouth of Truth – a marble face located outside a church - is said to bite the hands of liars; kids love trying it out.
3. Children's Museums in Rome
Rome doesn’t fall short of children’s museums. Kids can go back in time and become protagonists of the Roman Empire at the Time Elevator Rome, an interactive museum using stereoscopic technologies. Another great museum for all ages is the EXPLORA, a hands-on children’s museum offering daily activities.
4. A Trip to Rome's Amazing Parks
For a relaxing afternoon, explore one of Rome’s amazing parks. The Borghese Gardens feature a beautiful garden design, a lake, and breathtaking views over the picturesque rooftops. Last but not least, let your children eat lots of delicious pizza and ice-cream. The famous Giolitti ice-cream shop in the centre is a must-try.

Walk in any direction for 5-10 minutes and you’ll find excellent restaurants more frequented by the locals. If you’re looking for a specific neighbourhood to visit for the evening then make it Trastevere, a cobbled-street labyrinth with great restaurants and a typical Roman atmosphere. After dinner, make sure you buy a gelato cone for the walk back to your Rome vacation rental.
