Excellent kitchen filled with snacks, drinks and a coffee machine
Location = incredible (it’s on a main road and the road didn’t have a pathway so we just had to be careful every time we first went out the door)

Internal and external stairs
No bath (but it had a massive shower that our daughter loved playing in)

EAT

Any restaurant/cafe/bar recommendations for eating out with children?

The joys of Italy! Pizza on every corner, so if your child likes pizza, you are in luck. We find Italy overall a very child friendly place and have never felt uncomfortable in any of the restaurants or cafes that we have been to.

La Focaccia –  was the best pizza we found in Rome, you can have a wander around Piazza Navona and then head into the back streets to find La Focaccia.

DO

Things to do?

Spanish Steps – our daughter loved the freedom to run up and down over and over.

Pantheon – what’s not to love about walking around this incredible piece of history, and it’s free.

Trevi fountain – we happily spent half a day enjoying the fountain with a gelato in hand.

Bioparco – maybe we were just there at a bad time but I wasn’t impressed with the Rome Zoo, I left feeling a little depressed.

Villa Borghese Gardens were gorgeous – worth a run around. Little cafes were hidden away for a quick espresso to give you the energy for the 4 person peddle bikes that were available to rent.
