We’re visiting Rome with our four year old. I’m trying to find some cultural activities for him to do like pizza making, museum tour etc. Can anyone suggest any ideas? Thanks so much!

Hi, Is anyone aware of an English-language play group or nursery in Rome that accepts two-year olds and remains open during August? We will be staying in town and are desperately looking for ways of entertaining our son as my wife is heavily pregnant and won't be able to run around with him all day in the heat. Any ideas greatly appreciated!

Hello - my family will be moving from the US to Rome for a year, starting in August 2015. I have two boys - 6 and 10 - and we're anxious for them to settle in and make friends. Both boys are extremely enthusiastic calciatori, and we would love to connect them to some kind of recreational soccer team. I realize that youth sports are rather different in Italy than in the US, but does anyone have any experience or information in this area? Anything would be much appreciated.

Another post from me - my family will be spending a year in Monteverde Vecchio, and we are looking at schools for our two boys, 6 and 10. They have basically zero Italian; we'd consider public schools if we were staying for longer, but we're concerned that it would be a struggle for just one year. We've put in a few inquiries with international schools, but are getting a lot of negative responses - long wait lists, etc. And while we can afford to pay for some private schools, many are prohibitively expensive. Any suggestions about schools? I really appreciate the collective wisdom of the Angloinfo community!

Hello! I am currently a study abroad student from the United States and I am looking for a part-time babysitting job around the Prati area. I speak some Italian, but English is my first language. I have classes during the day but am available after 4 PM, or earlier on some days, as well as available most weekends. I will be in Rome until May 16th, so I can babysit anytime until then. I am studying Elementary Education back in the US and have multiple experiences working with children of all ages.

has anyone had any joy in persuading their state school to let their child have a packed lunch instead of school dinners? So fed up of my child not eating anything at lunch as he hates the school meals and me paying through the nose for the privilege.

I'm looking for a baby product that is essentially a sling that hooks to a door jam and allows the baby to jump up and down. Anybody have one they'd like to sell, or know where I can buy one in Rome?? It's for my grand-baby who is coming for Christmas. Yeah! Thx!

My family is moving to Rome for several months and I'm wondering where I might find good deals on toys (especially used) for my 3 1/2 year old.  We are only able to pack a few favorites to take with us, and since our stay is temporary, I really don't want to spend a fortune replacing things that we have back home.

I'm looking for a babysitter job in Rome. I am fluent in German and English, I am a law student in Germany and am here in Rome until July 2014.  I can offer babysitting or tutoring in languages. I understand Italian, but am not perfect yet.  Let me know if you are looking, thanks.
