Planning the ideal family vacation to Rome just got easier with this new Eyewitness Travel Family Guide, filled with family-friendly activities, itineraries, and accommodations for every budget. DK Eyewitness Travel: Family Guide Rome offers the best things to see and do on a family vacation in Rome--from visiting the ancient Roman sites of the Colosseum, Forum, and Palatine to exploring medieval streets and Baroque piazzas in the heart of Rome. And, it brings the city sights alive for children with fun facts, quizzes, and cartoons. The book brims with insider knowledge and ideas for activities that will engage children, from hands-on science at the children's museum Explora to roller-skating around the Villa Borghese. The major sights are treated as "hub" destinations around which families can plan their itineraries, including nearby places of interest, dining and rest options, and opportunities for children to let off steam at parks or playgrounds. All the practical information parents need appears alongside each sight, including transportation information, budget tips, age range suitability, and where to eat. Meanwhile, the most family-friendly, best-value accommodation options have been chosen with family budgets and needs in mind. Full-color throughout, this family travel guide also includes detailed maps of the main sightseeing areas for easy navigation and all the practical information needed for a fun, stress-free family vacation to Rome.
