- When you start organizing your trip, call your children to participate in everything from the beginning! Include them when choosing tours, ask if they have something specific in mind, what they would like to see, to know. They will feel like an integral part of the trip and will love choosing specific tours dedicated to them! Do some research before starting the “meeting” and offer the available options!
1) What to do in Rome with children? TAKE COOKING CLASSES!
One of the things that most attracts the attention of children are activities where, literally, it is necessary to get your hands dirty. With that in mind: how about a little cooking class? Rome offers several options and, below, I will indicate some of them:

With prices between 55 and 80 euros per person (there are some seasonal classes, check availability on their website), it is possible to offer a unique experience to children. With a duration of more or less three hours, children won’t even see the time pass and will be able to learn to make pasta and pizza in a very fun way. Make a reservation in advance.

Let’s visit some places:
One of the most famous names in Italy offers children a very special tour, which brings together fun, mysteries, history and culture. It is the Leonardo Exhibition that presents a very playful tour that holds the attention of children in an incredible way!
The proposal is very interesting, as it presents us with the opportunity to be in the heart of the Eternal City and offers us the chance to choose the route, what to see, how long to stay in a monument and follow the tour at our own pace. Also read: What to do in Rome when it rains?
