We spent our last long weekend in Rome and had a blast. We went to Rome when the boys were 4 months old, and it was a disaster trip. It was important to us to give the ancient city a re-do. This time, we took our great friend along. Everyone had so much fun! We took two tours that really enhanced our experience. A tour of the Colosseum and Roman Forum with Rome Tours with Kids by Maria was fantastic for the kids and adults. We also took a food tour through the neighborhood of Trastevere with Eating Italy Rome that wasn't geared towards families with young children. But, our tour guide was accommodating and our kids did well and enjoyed themselves.
