#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.

About Rome, Italy :

La Città Eterna, Rome, is the one of the most magical cities in the world. A trendy, fast-paced cosmopolitan culture blends seamlessly with the remnants and symbols of some of the most significant religious and historical events of our time. And there are fountains everywhere – see below!


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.
