We loved visiting Rome with our two teenage daughters. We were excited to visit The Eternal City for many reasons, but we weren’t expecting our teenage girls to love it as much as they did. The reason for this? There are tons of things to do in Rome for teenagers.

Our teens adore Rome because it has this unmatched, vibrant energy and loads of iconic landmarks to get their “I was in Rome” photos. Places like the Colosseum and the Pantheon captivated their young and curious minds and got them inspired and interested in art and architecture.
