Travelling to Rome this July as a family (husband + kids: 12 and 14 years old). We have a week near the Spanish Steps at a hotel for my husband's work -- the Westin Excelsior. But which area should we stay in on our own for the other 3 nights?
At first I thought getting an apartment near the hotel would be nice and convenient (just walk over with luggage when it was time to switch accommodations). But now I wonder if staying in a totally different part of Rome would be better in order to be closer to different attractions. Then we could just taxi over when it was time to change.
Thoughts and feedback appreciated.
