Rome Cavalieri
Where? Rome, Italy
Why? For children, merely seeing the famous sights of Rome (one of the New World Wonders) instantly energizes all those dull history lessons at school, but the Cavalieri Hilton goes one step further with activities ranging from gladiator lessons (for children aged seven and over) to pizza making.
