Rome with a two-year old: Last-minute questions

Jump to last reply

Hello. My husband and I are about to leave for three weeks in Italy with our two-year-old son. We have an apartment in Rome near Piazza Del Popolo for the first week.

Most importantly: We're planning to bring enough diapers for our flight plus a day or two in case of delays, so we'll need to buy some pretty soon after we arrive in Rome. Our apartment is near the east side of Piazza del Popolo. Where can we buy diapers near there? He currently wears Pampers size 5 - any tips on what brand/ size to buy would be appreciated, as I assume they will have different brands.

If anyone has restaurant recommendations near the apartment, I'd love to hear them. Our son is pretty well-behaved, but he is still two, so we're looking for friendly family trattorias or good delis (or bakeries, for breakfast!) rather than Michelin stars.

Lastly, we're trying to avoid making many concrete plans (which is kind of contrary to my nature!) but my husband has said that he'd like to go inside the Colosseum. I know we can buy tickets at the Palatine Hill, but are there any days or times that might be best for us terms of minimizing the time we spend in line?

Thanks!
