While you're staying in Rome for a family vacation with kids, I'd like to recommend 3 best activities in Rome right for you, which may enrich your holiday there and make your kids happy.

Best Activities in Rome

Row a Boat or Ride a Bike through the Borghese Gardens

Rome's second-largest public park gives kids a chance to burn off energy, and you'll be joining Romans in one of their favorite spots. There are all sorts of ways to explore the park. Rent a rowboat on the lake, pedal around in a surrey, rent a bike, or ride a Segway. There's more: playgrounds, pony rides on weekends, gardens, and a very good zoo. You can ride around the zoo - the Bioparco di Roma - on a cute little train.

Eat Gelato on the Spanish Steps
Piazza di Spagna, Rome

Nearly everywhere in Rome, your kids will certainly spot carts and shops selling the delicious Italian version of ice cream. But there are few better places to savor your daily scoop than on the flower-decked Spanish Steps. Reputed to be Europe's widest staircase, these 138 steps are one of the iconic images of Rome, as well as a favorite meeting place for locals and tourists. It's a good place to pause while the kids eat ice cream, and you enjoy a movie moment in the spot where Princess Ann's Roman Holiday begins.
