Traveling in Rome with Family in the winter

Hi,

We're planning to get to Rome (and the area) for 4-5 days around the time of new year's eve.

We're a family with two kids (ages 3 and 7) what would be a reccomended itiniarary for this trip?

Which hotels would fit for a family?

Do you reccomend going of the city and travel the area?

Are you sure you want to stay in a hotel? The reason I ask is that with two children, maybe a small apartment would suit you better. There are some such as Palazzo Olivia that are right in the center, so an ideal location yet you can have separate bedrooms, a kitchen, etc etc.

There is always a concert in Rome on New Years, if the weather allows you could attend that.

Hi,

Thanks for your response, actually apartment if priced reasonably would be perfect for us much better than hotel. Do you have any specific reccomendations?

I'm still in such early stages of planning, how much time do you think we should spend in Rome and do you think we should in some of that time go out of Rome and stay there, or would day-trips be better idea?

G'day,

If you want an apartment there is a new one near the Pantheon, Baldassini at the Marble Foot.

www.baldassinibeb.it

You are very welcome to use my discount code (BBB777). You can also use the discount code if you want to stay at the B&B BALDASSINI near the Panthheon - website is the same as above!

You can easily do day trips from Rome, such as, Florence (1 r 40 mins on the train), or Orvieto (1hr 5 mins on the train). You could take a bus to Frascati.

Pompeii is probably a little too far for a day trip!

Have a great holiday with the kids in Rome! :o)

We JUST got back. Stayed in an apt. in the Campo dei Fiori area. It was great. Three bedrooms, one bath, kitchen, very adequate, Grocery store across the street. very safe area and easy to get to everything. The price was very reasonable. The father-in-law of the lady we rented from actually picked us up from the airport, then took us to the train station when we left (went to venice). Our grown children were there and they stayed on after we left and he also picked them up at the airport and took them back, etc. Go to www.VRBO.com and put in number 32930. Pictures are exact. One King bed, one queen and two twins also has a roll away. Washer, iron, hair dryer. If you need her e-mail it's emyneri@alice.it Her name is Emy. We also used roninrome@gmail.com as a guide. He was wonderful. He is American, from Atlanta. He really helped us out even before the trip. I sent him several apts. to see which he thought was the best area and he picked the one we rented. He did an incredible tour, showed us how to use the bus system, etc.
