#1 Travel Tip: In Rome, you can drink water from most of the fountains in the city. Bring a refillable bottle but watch for signs saying “aqua non-potabile,” or non-potable water = non drinkable.
WHAT PARENTS ARE SAYING
I am of Italian origin but don't have any family left in Rome. It was very important to me to get this trip right to show my kids my heritage. Klara understood my needs and worked with me on a trip plan that covered both old and new Rome. We saw small, unknown neighborhoods as well as the Colosseum and ate at some of the best homestyle restaurants. I am very grateful for the help and support of MomAboard for this trip!

GET TO KNOW Klara
What do you love most about living in Rome?
I love being immersed in ancient remains, wherever you go you literally fall over roman ruins. And we still live between these historic monuments, can touch them and walk over stones that were put there thousands of years ago.
What’s one Rome-ism/Cultural quirk?
The roman chaos is something you have to get used to.
Why is traveling important for a family?
Traveling is quality time spent together as a family, it’s new experiences and always a sort of adventure. What remains are memories of time spent together.
What’s the hardest thing about traveling with kids?
For me at the moment the most difficult thing is to keep my boys together and make them go in the same direction.
What’s your favorite family travel destination in the world?
Ascoli Piceno, a beautiful historic town in the Italian Marche region, only 30 minutes’ drive from the beach and the mountains. But we haven’t yet travelled the world I must admit.
What’s on your travel wish list?
South America, Canary Islands
What’s one thing you do on every trip that makes traveling with kids easier?
I bring enough treats.
