This was the first time we ventured on an overnight trip here. I know how scary the hotels are so I was very nervous. We couldn't find a hotel with a single room to fit our family, so we opted to stay 10 minutes outside of Rome in a cottage. Best choice we've ever made! It was super cute. Perfect size and there was (unknown at time of booking) a bedrock themed kids restaurant directly across the way. We stayed for 3 days. What a blast! None of the kids complained as we had them walking... and walking... and walking.
We saw the Colosseum, pantheon, trevi fountain, roman forum, and even THE POPE!
Just a short 5 hour trip from our house
The cool restaurant.
