They’ll probably be seduced by the splendor of the Eternal City- we are sure they will never forget anything- but there’s even something more if they want to have fun. You only have to choose what you want to do first: be prepared to check an exciting to-do list.

Once it was one of the most famous park in Italy. It has been closed for a while, but the Luneur Park in Rome’s southern EUR suburb reopened on 27 October. There are 25 attractions at the seven-hectare park, including the original 23m-high ferris wheel- the Brucomela roller coaster-, carousel horses and teacups, as well as new attractions such as the bamboo tunnel, the giant swing and the Wizard of Oz-style farm. Moreover, you can also find shows, events and workshops for children.

THE BOTANICAL GARDEN
The Botanical Garden of Rome is one of the Museums of the Department of Environmental Biology of the Sapienza University of Rome. It covers an area of about 30 acres in the heart of the city, close to Colle del Gianicolo, and it is full of many kinds of plants and trees. It’s a place which can teach a lot to your children and where they can admire the strength and beauty of Nature.

It’s the biggest amusement park of Rome, situated outside the city (Valmontone area) with connections from Termini station. It has 38 attractions and a wide range of shows and events, as well as restaurants, bars, gift shops and picnic areas. Close to the fun park you can find a nice outlet (Valmontone outlet). It’s a good solution to spend a whole day all together outside the city.
Cinecittà World is also situated outside the city and has been conceived inside real film studios that have hosted international productions. On its website this park is described as “A blockbuster based on few ingredients, all successful: stunning rides, oscar-winning theming, themed dining experiences”. Events, shows and animations are also planned every day.
