Traveling with kids between 3-9 I would recommend the Explora kids museum. They have set times when they allow you in. We had not done the research before we got there so we had to wait for an hour before being allowed in. By doing this they make sure there are not to many people there at once. Introduction is...

We came here to give the 4 year old a break from sightseeing. It was a great time. Many things to do, with explanations in English. There is also an associated restaurant next door. Do note that there are several time slots each day for visits; Find out more online before going.

This place was great for the kids, but let me note some of the negative aspects of explora before setting off with all the fun stuff. We had to wait some time (30 mins or so) till it was our turn to go in, the place works in "shifts" asbto not cause overcrowding, so make sure to research the shifts... More

It was amazing for little kids, but it was amazing and for adults! The employees there are very kind and they explain everything (in Italian and English) and they are very friendly too! You don't have to wait for a long time! You get in immediately! There are lots of children parties there,so there are lots of kids! The children... More

I brought my 8 year old son here after 3 days of sightseeing and he had a great time. The signs are in Italian, however, they do have English translations on most things. Lots of things to touch and play with. The only drawback is that there are only certain times they allow you to come in... so you must... More

First time that I bring my son, along with a friend and her son, both of the same age (3 ½ years). The museum is nearly a playground complex with stimulating and creative games and activities for children, mostly valid from 5 or 6 years old. We went on a Sunday, so despite an imaginary closed number for midday access... More

At this place, they have managed to get a lot of activities out of few material things. Younger kids get practical introductions to technical stuff through hands-on experiences, enjoying it. Bigger ones - above nine-ten, say - will be a bit more bored. The slightly chaotic atmosphere is inspiring for some, irritating to others.

The place is full of hands on stuff for different ages. This was our second visit, My son, now 9, was 5 the first time we visited and he loved it. The place had very few people around and he could do anything he wanted. The motto is, "It is forbidden not to touch", which is perfect for kids. This... More

My 6-year old child enjoys this children museum in Rome very much. This is the place that he likes the most in Rome. There are a number of games asking a child to think hard, but full of fun. And there are a number of ways teaching knowldege to children, in a very vivid and fun way. Really cool. Only... More

Staying in Parioli

Neighborhood Profile
Young and well-to-do families are the street flavor of Parioli. A new kind of Rome, this area is centuries away from the Renaissance with its pockets of 1930s palaces, tony boutiques, open-air markets and plenty of coffee shops. Parioli was built as an enclave for last century’s haute bourgeois and still represents as such in 21st century Rome. Need a break? The area has several great sporting clubs known for tennis and riding, a wonderful modern art museum, easy access to the zoo (Europe’s oldest), and is nestled around Rome’s very best parks including Villa Borghese, Villa Ada and Villa Glori.
