It’s a national stereotype, I know, but Italy really does seem to embrace her child visitors. Kids are welcomed into restaurants, even flash ones, you get a genuinely warm welcome in hotels, and someone will always want to help you if you’ve a small one in tow. And Rome is a fantastic place to show your kids. What could be more inspiring than all those wonderful historic landmarks? So all that leaves you to do is find the best family hotels in Rome, and make sure you all get the sleep you need to power on through all the treasures. And churches…

Some of the best family hotels in Rome are among the best the city has to offer period, which is a nice surprise. While some of the properties on our Guru’s list of the best family hotels in Rome are designed specifically with families in mind, with kitchenettes, living spaces and other home-from-home facilities. Our Gurus have also found some great value options and some great family-friendly B&Bs. So there’s no excuse for not showing your kids the church of San Clemente, with its layers of history, or not taking them up to the dome of St. Peter’s, or letting them play-fight in the Colosseum or pull all the levers they can get their hands on at the Leonardo Museum.
