Family friendly resorts in or near Rome?

It has just occured to me that DH might be having me over a barrel.
We have been invited to a wedding in Rome in the summer and we have 2 young DCs. Both DCs are allergic to dairy and so we would need to stay somewhere with a kitchen so that I can prepare their meals. At first, I was really keen to take DCs on their first abroad holiday and DH said it would be too expensive and we wouldn't be able to afford to go. He then told me he had researched and there was no family friendly resorts within 3 hours of Rome. Just hotels with 1 shared room.
A few weeks later, after me agreeing it wouldn't be a good idea, he has announced that he plans to go alone.
I've just naively relayed the story to a friend and quietly realised that DH could be lying about the lack of family friendly accommodation so that he gets to go alone. I hope I'm wrong.
I was explaining the reasons as to why we weren't going to the wedding over the weekend to the Mother of The Groom and DH suddenly wanted to correct my reasoning to their being issues with the flight.
I'm now very suspicious.

I rented a 2 bed apartment in the centre of Rome at a very reasonable price! There are loads of them.

Hi,plenty of family friendly accommodation in Italy but I am unsure about resorts apart from I Pini Park mentioned above.I can't stress enough that Rome can get uncomfortably hot in summer and kids don't care enough to be dragged around ancient ruins in the blistering hot weather.I would suggest you stay just outside Rome by the seaside so the all family can enjoy a proper holiday and you are close enough to get to Rome for the wedding and some sightseeing.I can recommend Santa Marinella and Civitavecchia. Santa Marinella is smaller and prettier with a very nice sandy beach were Civitavecchia is were all the Cruise Ship dock and is bigger with more on offer (shops,restaurants,daily market) but the beach is pebbly and not very well looked after.

We just returned from a week in Rome with my husband, our two boys (4 and 10 months) and my mum. We stayed in a lovely 3 bed apartment between the Piazza del Popolo and Piazza di Spagna, which we found on booking.com. The owner was lovely and provided a travel cot, highchair, box of toys and even baby shampoo when he realised we were bringing our baby along. It was really good value but not sure what the price would be like in the summer.
