Climbing St Peter’s Dome and Visiting the Basilica with Children

During our trip to Rome, when we visited the Vatican Museums we went to the Sistine Chapel and then found ourselves heading towards St Peter’s Basilica. We backtracked slightly to pay a small fee and climb to the top of St Peter’s Basilica before exploring the church itself. Climbing St Peter’s is something completely different to other Rome experiences and one of our favourite things to do with kids in…

We decided to revisit the smallest sovereign state in the world which happens to be smack bang within the Italian capital – Vatican City, home of the Roman Catholic Church and it’s leader, Pope Francis. It is also home to the Vatican Museum and St Peter’s Basilica, the largest church in the world.…

The holes are caused by the button on your…

His favourite topic at the moment is the moon landing – knowing that next month it’s been 50 years since man stepped onto the moon for the first time.

Maps for Moments – A Personalised Gift For Any Occasion | AD

There are some people, and some occasions, that I find so hard to buy the perfect gift for. It’s always hard to know what to buy parents or grandparents as if they want something they’ll just buy it themselves usually. Also, finding something unique to give as a gift for a sentimental occasion – a big birthday, a first wedding anniversary or even a gold or ruby wedding anniversary. It…
