Last Part: Roaming in Rome – DIY Tour

Day 4

We really dedicated our last day on visiting places that kids will enjoy. As I said earlier, Cole never complained once with all the walking we did but I can sense he had enough of the culture. So we had breakfast first at the Pantheon area.

We started the day with a visit to Bioparco di Roma. We took a taxi from our apartment in Pantheon to the zoo. We paid around EUR 10 for taxi fare.DSC01610_Fotor

Entrance fee is EUR 15 for adults and EUR 12 for children upto 12 years of age and above 1 metre. We paid extra EUR 3 each for access to “Alien Fish” area. You can see the further details here

We really enjoyed the zoological park. Most animals are up close.

There is a ‘reptile area’ where the room is set in certain temperature for the animals inside. We didn’t take much photos because our lenses got foggy.DSC01721_Fotor

We availed the train that went around the zoo area.

The highlight of the event was Gibson finally meeting his twin. 😂😂😂

After the zoo, we again took a cab and asked to be dropped at Explora, a children’s museum in Rome. We purchase the tickets right there and then and paid EUR 8 each for Gibson, Cole and I. Biel got free admission again.

Museum operates a ‘timed-ticketing system’. Entrance is per shift and access is limited to 1 hour and 30 minutes. We didn’t have to wait long for our turn, our arrival was just perfect and we were included on the next batch entering. Had we arrived a few minutes later, we will need to wait for another 1.5 hours. Although there a mini restaurant and cafe inside so you can really easily pass the time.

From the museum, we walked towards Piazza del PopoloIMG_3413_Fotor

And visited the church just beside Leonardo da Vinci Museum. The church seems to be popular but I didn’t get its name.

Heavy rain started pouring but being the girl scout that I am, I have raincoats for the kids and umbrella for Gibson and I. We continued walking towards Spanish Steps and stopped from time to time to shop. Gibson, being a male version of Imelda, bought a rubber shoes. And how can you be in Italy and not buy a leather bag? We bought 3 small ones from a leather bag store and found a shop selling knick knacks and souvenirs. We completed our shopping from that store.

We finished our touristy activities on our 4th day. Our flight the following day was at 3:20pm but I don’t know what happened to me, I mistaken it at 1:20 pm. So we were at the airport too early for our flight and I end up buying more food items for souvenirs.

Our Rome trip was really unforgettable and magical. With a little planning and saving, a European tour is possible for everyone. Drop me a message if you want to know more. Have a great weekend everyone!
