OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES IN ROME WITH KIDS: EXPLORING THE PARKS
Did you know that Rome is one of the most green cities of Europe? It has a lot of huge green areas like parks and villas, which are not just a piece of nature in the city. Each one has its own story and art! Villa Borghese, for example, has in incredible art and architecture baroque heritage and it is in the very centre of the city. Villa Pamphili was made by a Pope and hosts an incredible variety of flora and big spaces to enjoy the city summer. It is just few steps from the Gianicolo terrace, one of the best views of Rome. The Archeological Park of Appia Antica is a jump in the past: the original Appia street, from roman era, is still there, sorrounded by mausoleums and aqueducts. The Caffarella park is for real romans: away from the tourist path, this park is more savage (wild rabbits over there!) and perfect for cycling. Villa Ada, on the north side, is the third biggest park of the city and hosts the ancient Villa Reale, house of the last king if Italy.
SPENDING A DAY OUTSIDE THE CITY
Rome countryside is amazing. Just out of the city, you are already surrounded by the beauty of Castelli Romani – which are perfect for food and wine tour – or the mysterious Tuscia, with a lot of paths on the footsteps of Etruscans. Rafting with kids? Why not! Try it at Valle dell’Aniene, a stunning natural area just one hour out fo Rome. All perfect outdoor activities in Rome…without being in Rome 🙂
