One-time capital of the mighty Roman Empire, Rome is steeped in history, art and 'la dolce vita'. What an incredible family experience you could have walking the same streets as Julius Caesar, Michelangelo and da Vinci! The majestic Colesseum amphitheatre, among the most visited tourist destinations in the world, is simply spectacular. Rome has a wealth of beautiful and historically fascinating old chapels and churches with fine art work: San Clemente, sat on top of layers of archaeological excavations, and San Pietro in Vincoli (Saint Peter in Chains), home to Michelangelo's statue of Moses - not to mention the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican City.
A trip with children to Rome must include a delicious cappuccino in one of Rome's many coffee shops, and at least a few scoops of authentic Italian gelato! During your home stay, enjoy all the commodities of a genuine Italian home kitchen and follow the local family's tips for cooking wonderful Italian meals and maybe even some tiramisu!
Staying at the home of a Roman family will help you understand the city's culture on a deeper level by living among the Romans themselves. Gain unforgettable experiences amid the Roman ruins and the crazy traffic, driving through the city on a Vespa or trying out your Italian on the locals. Arrivederci Roma!
