  • We spent a week in Rome with our 4-year-old during July's heat, and considered this place to be a holiday saviour. Friendly, air-conditioned, easy to reach, reasonably priced and utterly loved by our ...  more »
  • I took my son from Explora several times and have always enjoyed myself. A different way of playing and learning. Helpful and knowledgeable staff.

  • Really nice place to take the kids, learning by exploring /playing is always good
  • Excellent museum for children aged 0 to 12. Children were excited and interested to learn and play.
  • I like the idea of what they are trying to achieve but they should consider renovating. A lot of interactive elements are broken or simply gross from lack of maintenance or cleaning. They didn't hand out bracelets with codes so some exhibits were unavailable. Staff was merely there to check the tickets at the entrance.
  • Great place for kids. Keep in mind that you pay for adults also and that your time is limited to 1.75 hour windows. There is a nice little playground that you can play in for free while waiting to go inside.
  • Too noisy. Staff doing the introduction yelling over the PA system so much the ears hurt. Activities overall Ok but not exceptional. Not very helpful staff

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
