Rome with teenagers, apartment or hotel?

Jump to last reply

HI- I've tried to read everything so that I can be efficient in seeking info from expert travelers - but have one question specific to my family plans!

Five of us will travel next July 2015 (I know but it's when we can do it) to Rome and Sorrento/Amalfi Coast or further south (likely 8-10 days, but still planning).

My question about Rome and taking my 3 kids --a 12yr-girl, 15yr-boy, 18yr-girl is this: should we rent an apartment for 3-4 nights or get a hotel (that includes breakfast). My worry about hotel is that we:
A) have to get 3 rooms which forces us to put one parent in a solo bc I don't want to put any kid in a single -- cost/safety
B) squish 3 teenagers into one triple room - they like each other but are all grown, not child size now -- comfort

An apartment appeals due to space/flexibility/local living, but not due to my having to worry about all of the meals and haggling with a landlord.

If you also have location advice per your suggestion on which to book, I'd love that too -- and am reviewing your advice on locations per other forums too. Thanks in advance!
