Rome may be an awesome city for adults to enjoy all the history and beauty that makes this city one of the most popular destinations in the world, however, if you plan to bring the children along, you must include some kid type adventures, or you will have unhappy and possibly crying children on your hands. If your children are unhappy, you will surely not enjoy the sights.
According to the age of the children, you will find many wonderful ways in which to enjoy Rome and include activities the kids will enjoy as well. You can always break up the day by visiting attractions you want to see and then spend a portion of the day giving your children memories they will not soon forget as well.
