My family (myself, DH and son who will be 21 months old then) are traveling to Europe this summer and very excited to visit Rome! We have a pretty good idea of what we want to do and see (as first-timers, pretty much the biggies). We also know that we will be doing a slower-paced trip due to the fact that a toddler can't explore as busily as we would, however, this sounds perfect to me! We have 4 days in Rome and we are hoping to do Colosseum/Forum/Palatine (probably with a tour), Vatican with a private guide to keep toddler stress as low as possible, Borghese gallery and lots of walking around neighborhoods to explore and give the baby time to walk around (safely of course). If we can squeeze in any other sights like the Capitoline Museums, Castel Sant'Angelo, etc. we will, depending on DS's mood. What I am specifically looking for are tips specific to the major sights in Rome. We will have our awesome lightweight umbrella stroller with us, as well as a baby backpack. Yes, we are bringing both... I have heard that you can't bring a backpack into St. Peter's. Maybe Vatican day would be a good baby backpack day? Also, I imagine the Colosseum would be a good time to have the baby backpack. Can we bring a stroller into the Borghese? Will we even be allowed into the Borghese with a well behaved toddler (well-behaved is relative at this age...). Are there any change tables in Rome, or will I change his diaper on a park bench? ;) You get the idea. Please let me know of any tips/advice. I promise to post a trip report specific to travelling with a toddler when we get back!
