We recently travelled to Rome with our four children, aged 10 and under. An ambitious (crazy?) challenge to begin with, we were worried about battling crowds and wasting time at sites that would tire or bore the kids. This book was an invaluable source of helpful hints for avoiding lines, narrowing down overwhelming tourist traps to just the parts that the kids would find interesting, and suggesting quick places for family friendly snacking, resting, or pit-stopping based on where we decided to go each day. It was easy to reference, and even our well-seasoned travelling companion was impressed by the "back door" tips it had to offer for navigating popular sites. There were days that my husband and I had to admit that the book was our family's lifesaver!

"Rome With Kids" is just as important for your trip to Rome as obtaining your passport. This book is written for PEOPLE going to visit Rome. Children are people, too. This book will enhance the visit with the author's expert advice and insight on history, culture, food, shopping,and above all where to buy the best ice cream.
"Rome with Kids" has everything you need to discover the delights of Rome at your own pace and the pace of the children.
I have lived in Italy , on and off, for over 30 years. As I read this excellent book I found new and interesting things to see and to do.
I give it 10 stars.

My daughter (11) and I loved planning our trip to Rome with this book! It ended up being the only book we carried with us as we toured the Eternal City. The information was great with wonderful tidbits to keep the interest level high. There are terrific pictures throughout although without a frame of reference for size, we were always surprised to find out something was MUCH bigger than we thought it was going to be! That was always good for a laugh.
Since we were staying nearby, the recomended gelato stand between the Pantheon and Piazza Navona became our regular nightcap and it is the best in the city! Great tip! We even sent another family there.
We homeschool so this was our field trip and this book was invaluable for our needs. Our copy has been our notebook and is full of written notes, highlighting, post-it notes, and drawings. Thank goodness the printing is such great quality. We wouldn't part with it for anything!
Ciao!

This is a great guide for finding things to do in Rome that kids like. We would not have gone to San Clemente or to the Pincio gardens, my daughter's favorite parts of our trip, if we had not had the guide. It is small and fits well in a purse. It is, however, not comprehensive enough for adults. We spent 8 days in Rome and needed the more comprehensive maps, shopping and restaurant and attraction guides of the "Eyewitness Travel Rome" to cover all we wanted to do.

What are the premier world destinations for tourists? Among them, of course, is Rome. Most of us have neither the time nor the money to visit Rome, but it's fun to imagine such a visit.

Rome With Kids, published in 2007, is written by a resident of Rome. It is a 240-page little glossy book with color photos or maps on virtually every page.

Ms. Pasquesi divides Rome into four parts and describes a walking tour for each part.
Part One: Ancient Rome, including the Forum and the Colosseum
Part Two: Medieval & Renaissance Rome, including the Piazza Navona and the Pantheon
Part Three: Baroque & Modern Rome, including the Trevi Fountain and the Spanish Steps
Part Four: Papal Rome, including St. Peter's Basilica, the Sistine Chapel, the Vatican Museums, and Castel Sant'Angelo

I never before realized that tourists can climb clear to the lantern above the cupola atop St. Peter's Dome.

Author Pasquesi gives brief histories of each major painting, statue, or edifice. The first few pages of her book give biographical sketches of the few emperors, artists, and popes who were the major players in commissioning the construction of the buildings or creating the works of art.
