Rome for Kiddies!
Rome has lots for the children:
- Zoo in Rome
- Children's Museum
- Villa Borghese Park: When the busy city starts to take a toll on your little ones, bring them to one of the most beautiful, lushest, most tranquil parks in Rome. Its lovely gardens, exotic trees, and ancient busts make it a perfect place for an afternoon of walking, picnicing, or just enjoying the marvelous vistas. Villa Borghese Park also houses the Dei Piccoli children's cinema, the
Bioparco-Zoo, and Museo Nazionale di Zoologica.
- Museo della Civilta Romana: Take the aspiring city planner to this museum in EUR, where you'll see detailed models of ancient Rome's city layout, as well as a cutaway model of the Colosseum, and full-scale casts of Trajan's Column.
- Castel Sant'Angelo: It's been a mausoleum, a fortress, a papal residence, and a prison; now it's a museum of art shows, frescoes, terraces, and spiral staircases. Your children will feel like royalty as they gaze at the lavish Renaissance salons and glorious views of Rome.
- Museo delle Navi: Just past Fiumicino airport, this small museum offers genuine Roman ships and displays on ancient trade.
- Luna Park: The fact that Rome's funfair is 30 years old only adds to its charm. The rides and exhibits are theatrical and exciting: a veritable amusement park with a roller coaster, two haunted houses, a hall of mirrors, car and pony rides. It's worth the trip to EUR.
- Puppets!: Stroll to the top of the Gianicolo to see a performance by the best-kown children's theatre in Rome. Teatro Verde hosts puppet shows and acted plays in Italian. Visit the costume and prop workshop half an hour before curtain.
