    Hi! We are a traditional family, we both work in the near hospital. We have two nice kids of 10 and 8, they are quiet and polite. During the year they go to school from 8 to 16 from Monday to Friday, and two time a week they do some sports. In summer they are at home and we need help to look for them when we are at work, cooking and playng, going to the beach. We love our kids and we really value their education and training. They study english at school, they can talk a bit.
    Usually we work in the morning, sometime in the afternoon or evening, it depends on turnation.

    You will live in the beautifull city of Rome, you'll have a lot of time to travel, visit museum, or places close to the city. You can reach Florence in 2 hours, or Naples too. We also live close to the sea, and you can practice all sea sports you like, there is Naval Legue if you practice sail. The Fiumicino airport is 30 min far, is also easy to travel in Europe.
