Of all the amazing things to see in Rome you might ask why on earth I even mention Cats. The reason is simply that my kids love animals and needed something a bit different one afternoon. So we went in search of Torre Argentina Cat Sanctuary, a no-kill shelter for homeless cats in the heart of Rome. Here dozens of homeless but cared for cats live among the ancient roman ruins. My children loved searching for and photographing the cats. Inside, there is a shelter that sells some trinkets and you can donate to help the cats but the fun is seeing the sleepy kitties among the ruins. We did something similar to this in Lima, Peru and it was such fun and a nice break from visiting sites.
