Missypie's Trip to Italy with Kids: What the kids enjoyed most

Jump to last reply

We're back from Italy. I'll post a more detailed report later, but I thought I'd quickly post what my kids enjoyed most, for the benefit of any families that might be heading out soon. We have a son 15, a daughter 13 and a daughter 10.

ROME:

St. Peters - climbing the dome is like a fun house; plus the sheer size of it is amazing.

Forum Tour (we used Icon)

The Pantheon

The Borghese Gallery - the girls aren't huge art lovers, but the sculpture was so incredible that everyone loved it

Renting a surrey in the Borghese park (because the weather turned so disasterously bad [hail!] that we couldn't help but laugh).

My son loved seeing all the Angels & Demons sites.

FLORENCE:

Not having the traffic that Rome had.

Shopping (daughter 13)

Playing on a playground with Italian kids (daughter 10)

"The David"

VENICE:

Seeing the canals and riding the boats

Feeding the pigeons!!! My 10 year old could have done that all day.

And of course, they loved the gelato everywhere.
