MumAbroad Rome

 

With a population of nearly 2.8 million and a surface area that puts it among the biggest cities in Europe, the Italian capital can be noisy, chaotic and frustrating. Romans may be child-friendly but the city infrastructure is not. The city’s bureaucracy is notorious for being complicated and unapproachable. The whole process of finding accommodation, registering children at school and obtaining official documents can be incredibly frustrating.

 

However, as one of Italy’s greenest cities it has a wealth of parks and gardens for children to play in and as the capital of the ancient Roman empire and seat of the Roman Catholic Church it is steeped in history, much of which is visible in its museums, monuments and archaeological sites, that provide constant stimulation to curious young minds. Rome has a large expat community with various support networks centred on its many English-language churches and international schools. This coupled with an affordable and comprehensive public transport system, good public healthcare, a great food and wine culture and endless opportunities of family friendly things to see and do make Rome a magical and interesting place to live!
