Alone in Rome with 3 kids (Dec 2014)...Help!

Jump to last reply

Hi all! We are from the US, but we are fortunate to have the chance to live in Switzerland for the next 2 years. This is my children's first abroad experience (ages 6, 8 and 11) and I have now planned a last minute trip for them to Rome...leaving this weekend!
We will be staying at the Westin Excelsior which is near the Villa Borghese gardens and Piazza de Spagna (from website). As I will be alone with them and my boys will have low tolerance for all day museums hopping, I am thinking that I will keep my days very flexible! Here is a brief sketch of our itinerary and if anyone can make suggestions, I would most appreciate it! I would also love to get suggestions for some kid-friendly restaurants....would love to avoid the touristy restaurants (maybe hard to do since we are staying central?) and I already know that a lot of restaurants don't open for dinner until 7pm (plan to fill up on late afternoon gelato).

Sunday, Dec 14th-arrive in Rome at 2pm. Catch cab to hotel, rest and explore streets around hotel. Maybe try Pinsere for a late afternoon snack? Would like first-night dinner recommendation in walking distance.

Monday-Colosseum tour in morning with private guide and considering Forum/Palatine Hill in afternoon if kids are not exhausted/cold. (not sure of time needed to explore these places).

Tuesday-St. Peter's Basilica in AM. Vatican Museum with private guide in pm. Try Pizzarium for lunch?

Wednesday-Christmas market at Piazza Navona, Pantheon, Trevi Fountain. Try Pastificio for lunch?

Thursday-Borghese garden and ?museum.

Friday-leave after lunch. Any suggestions again?

Thanks again in advance!
Valerie
