Rome has withstood the test of time and is now a cultural nexus of architecture, history, and art. In fact, there’s so much to see and do that you’d need months to explore Rome. So, if you’re lucky enough to take a trip to Rome in your lifetime, make sure you bring the family along for the ride too, because it’s an enlightening experience that will leave everyone amazed, and will give you the chance of a lifetime to bond over the beautiful scenery all around you. Below are some of the activities to do in Rome.

Visit The Colosseum

It’s the largest amphitheater in the world, and you and the kids can get an interesting history lesson from an experienced tour guide who’ll tell you about the battles between animals and gladiators. Plus, it’s a great selfie spot too, and we all know children get a kick out of sharing their adventurous shenanigans on social media.

Make A Wish At The Trevi Fountain

 

Make sure you and the kids have plenty of pennies. According to the legend if you toss a coin in, you’ll return to Rome someday. Hey, wishes do come true! Meanwhile, you can sit there and enjoy a nice family picnic, while you plan your itinerary for a day.

Ride To The Villa Borghese

You and the fam can ride a bike to this cultural park full of pristine gardens, fountains, statues, and playgrounds for your kids to run around in. You can also row a boat on the lake or have a picnic in the colorful Borghese gardens, a perfect resting stop for those days where you’ve been out since early morning.

Go Wild At Bioparco Di Roma

It’s one of the oldest zoos in Europe and is home to 20 different species and over a thousand animals. It has a beautiful garden too, that’s perfect for families looking to get away from the overload of a tourist-congested city.

Cool Off At The Piazza Navona

This charming square is built around three baroque fountains, so you and the family can cool off near the splashing water, or enjoy some ice cream and a drink at one of the many amazing restaurants in this stunning piazza that was built in the 1st century.

Treat Yourself At Giolitti’s Gelato

If you’re looking for the best gelato in town, then look no further than this delicious shop. You and your kids can enjoy a variety of flavors like figs, champagne, chocolate fondant and more. So, get ready to experience the ultimate sugar high.

The Explora Museum Just For Kids

Explora is a child under 12’s heaven as they interact and role-playing at a mini-supermarket, TV studio, and bank. While you might not get to fully interact in this area, you’ll get a kick out of watching your kids having so much fun.

Learn To Make Pizza

Sign up for the Katja Hansel tour guide and learn how you and the family can make a traditional pizza. After watching the experts do it, you can create your own delicacy to cook and enjoy.

Visit The Vatican

Gaze upon Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel ceiling, or enjoy the view from St. Peter’s Dome. Trust us, the 330-step climb is worth it, and you and your kids will leave here feeling enriched by the cultural and architectural aspects.

Check Out Ostia Antica For a Historical Sight

At this ancient sea port, you’ll get to see the preserved ruins of a rediscovered Roman town, which had been buried by sand for centuries. It’s perfect for the inner archaeologist and historian in all of us.

Who’s The Liar In The Family?

The Bocca della Verita is a medieval lie detector that allegedly bit off your hand if you lied. So go ahead, be brave, and put your hand in and take a photo, but hurry before the mouth closes on your wrist.

  • One of the very few images in @joalimaldives that I saved on laptop before my memory card on my drone got completely corrupted and wiped out everything. 💆🏼 Note to self: Sh** happens 🐠 ☀️
  • She has a thousand things to say to you... and a thousand reasons not to 💫
  • It’s a fact that I struggle with words often face to face, because strong feelings can all be inside me but only left for me to feel them... It is not that the meaning cannot be explained... But there are certain meanings that are lost the moment they are explained in words, and that’s how, without any pressure, I’ve learned to take it all in... 💫
  • Are you a beach villa or a water-villa person?
Each water villa at @joalimaldives has a 35sqm pool (Apart from the ocean residence which have two pools like this one!)
Happy Sunday from the happiest island! ♥️
  • A wish you were here kind of day 💫
@joalimaldives
  • Maldives is a beautiful paradise but has a fragile ecosystem that plays a role to keep the magic alive. The construction at JOALI Maldives @joalimaldives was designed to build around the trees, to save as many as possible. They saved over 1000 trees and work so passionately on sustainability. 🐠 It’s very close to my heart that we constantly support and value our ocean especially the marine life ♥️
  • I love to introduce you to JOALI Maldives. @joalimaldives 
A brand new island that stands out because it has built its’ whole identity on ‘Joie de vivre’ which constitutes the art of living... really, truly living life, embracing it fully. Whether you call it living in the moment, or self fulfillment, joie de vivre is a quality and a feeling we can all learn to acquire. Say hello to the beautiful and unique @joalimaldives
  • It’s just who she is, a little entertainer, especially when I ask her to look at the camera so we can take a ‘subtle’ shot... but nope, instead, she breaks into her dance moves and I thought... why the hell not... and just took the picture. ♥️
  • One of the most beautiful places I’ve been to, Madeira Island 🌴 - An Island 2 hours away from Lisbon by plane! Have you ever been?
  • A year ago today I was in Cambodia 🇰🇭 💫
So much growth from where I was and where I am today, but I’ll always remember where I started. 
I’m curious to know, which was the first photograph you remember of me since you started following my journey?
  • A new week in the UAE and my last before being back on the road! It’s been a great break from flying but I think I’m ready to get back out there with my camera! 
Happy Sunday everyone! Kick ass in whatever you are doing today! ♥️
  • Who is coming with me!? We just released new dates for @travelwithtjd for 2019 and I am overwhelmed with your responses!! There is a power in disconnection and I find it right here! I now count the days to go back to Finland and everywhere in Scandinavia.
