We Went Camping In Rome!

As a family of 4 we like to try out all types of accommodation options and this Summer Road Trip was to be no different.  We aren’t your typical hotel goers, as we prefer a little more space or unusual places.  That said, there are times when a hotel fits the bill for short stays. We have stayed in a cave house, a ferry, boat hotels, but most often, we like to rent apartments, so why not try camping in Rome?
