Do you have any questions about traveling in Rome with kids?

I don’t have kids, but I do think everyone should spend some time walking around Rome, even if Rome’s hotels are expensive. The city is just too romantic (yes also busy, noisey, and polluted) thanks to all the wonderful things to see.

However, there must be people with kids wondering how to make sure the whole family enjoys this must-see city.

If you’re one of those people then this is your lucky day! I’ve arranged an interview with the author of Rome with Kids, J.M. Pasquesi.

But, like I said, I don’t have kids. So instead of doing a normal interview, I’m going to let you ask the questions. If there’s something you want me to ask, leave your question in the comments area below. Here are some possible topics Pasquesi can discuss:

– Introducing your children to art, culture and foreign food

– Top 10 things no one told you about traveling abroad with kids

– Tips for traveling safely in Europe with small children

– How to plan tours and itineraries to keep your kids from burning out

– How young is too young: Can a child really enjoy and remember a trip abroad?

– Games, stories and scavenger hunts to keep your kids engaged

– Finding family-friendly accommodations and restaurants abroad

– How and when to start planning your European family vacation

The following comes from a press release:

J.M. Pasquesi, Rome travel expert and writer, makes Italy’s capital even more accessible for parents and children with her new, one-of-a-kind book Rome with Kids: An Insider’s Guide (Synergy Books, July 2007), providing entertaining itineraries that reveal Rome’s history and culture, along with step-by-step tours and tips to save families valuable time. Rome with Kids combines an adult’s desire to become immersed in the glories of Rome with a child’s desire to run, play and explore.

“Rome is largely an outdoor interactive museum,” says Pasquesi. “Classical ruins are ideal for touring with children because they are so accessible.”

So let’s make this an interesting interview – leave your question below within the next few days.

    If we only have 2 days in Rome with our 12yr. old grandaughter, what do you suggest we see?

  2. James Baladez says:

    Children at all ages need Pass Ports @$92 each ? It is believed that this is an addition in Funds to help pay for the George Bush’s Iraqi conflict.

  3. Rob says:

    We’re thinking of taking a two week trip to Italy next summer with our 3 children ages 14, 18 and 21. We’d like to try to stay in or near Venezia, Firenze and Roma and take day trips from each city to explore some smaller towns. Can you give us any suggestions to keep everyone involved and no one too tired from trying to see everything. We’d really rather not go to a new hotel every night if possible. Can you help?

    I am taking 3 grandchildren to Rome during Easter, would it be less crowded Good Friday or Easter week end

  5. James Trotta says:

    Keep those questions coming! I’ll take a bout 5 more since James Baladez’s passports paying for Iraq question won’t make the final cut…

  6. Vivien says:

    We are bring our 2 children, aged 12 and 9 to Italy. We are planning to go to Rome, Venice, Florence and Milan. Please advise on accomodations, food and places of interest. Thank you.

  7. CJ Treangen says:

    How young is TOO young for children in Rome? Our youngest will just turn 7 before our trip. We also have a 8, 12, and 14 year old. Are there places that accommodate a family of 6 without splitting us up? Thanks!

  8. Tatiana Donis says:

    Me and my family (including a 1, 1 1/2, and 7 yo) are traveing to Italy in a few months and were a bit worried it would be to much for the kids to go from city to city. We were planning on visiting Florence, Venice, and Rome. Do you have any suggestions? any concerns?

  9. Todd Harris says:

    I would love to see a discussion of your ‘possible topics’ listed in your introduction above particularly the first five. I’m planning on taking a trip to Europe with my then 6 & 9 year old next summer and Rome is right up there at the top of the list.
