We went to Explora with a toddler who simply loved it and couldn't get enough of running from one activity to another. It was a great break for her during a visit to Rome, finally out of the stroller and in a place where she could touch things! There are activities for children of all ages, and everyone there clearly... More

We visited this place and we would recommend this to anyone with young children. Beware it's a persession venue and most the children are Italian but my son man friends with a boy that spoke both English and Italian so he was able to enjoy it more but all the activities are in both Italian and English. It closes at... More

we went with 4 children, 2 babies and 2 toddlers and they all loved it. Great interactive where children can even role play a way out to the supermarket or a day in the farm. Totally recommend it.

Smart enough, they only let a certain amount of people in each "shift" of 1:45 hours so the place is not crowded. It's not a bif museum but the kids just loved it and asked to return the day after. Much fun and action. Book in advanced.

Stopped off here one morning to give our 1 year old a break from sightseeing and days stuck in the buggy. You arrive for one of the sessions think they run every few hours and buy a ticket at reception. The museum is split into separate sections of hands on exhibits. They had a big soft play area for 0-3... More

Found this recommendation in my Rome guidebook, it is fantastic for little ones. There are 4 set times that you can visit throughout the day, so I would check the website or phone up prior to turning up. We went for a later session & was there for almost 2 hours. There are two levels - some science bits, mirrors,... More

Its an interactive museum for the kids, where they can play, explore and experiment for about 2 hours. Great option for a rainy day in Rome or when the kids need a break Rom walking around in Rome.

As you can imagine Rome isn't type of city that youngsters can appreciate. This place makes it all right for them. A lot of stuff to do for children from 18months and up. Visiting time is limited to 1:45min and tour starts every two hours. A must do if traveling with small children.

I went there with my 2 kids and they really liked it and enjoyed it. It's very useful. Kids can learn about new scientific things .I highly recommend this place to visit.

My seven year old daughter visited Explora two years ago and loved the interactive exhibits and games. After a day visiting the historic sites, she enjoyed playing with other kids and a respite from summer heat. This year I was looking for kids' activities in Rome and found out Explora offers summer camp -- "Campus." From 830 to 1630, my... More

Staying in Parioli

Neighbourhood Profile
Young and well-to-do families are the street flavour of Parioli. A new kind of Rome, this area is centuries away from the Renaissance with its pockets of 1930s palaces, tony boutiques, open-air markets and plenty of coffee shops. Parioli was built as an enclave for last century’s haute bourgeois and still represents as such in 21st century Rome. Need a break? The area has several great sporting clubs known for tennis and riding, a wonderful modern art museum, easy access to the zoo (Europe’s oldest), and is nestled around Rome’s very best parks including Villa Borghese, Villa Ada and Villa Glori.
