Tour Description

Spark your Child's Imagination

There are few historical sites in the world that spark the imagination like the Colosseum. With a rich history of emperors, gladiators, lions and mock-sea battles – there is something new and fascinating to discover at every turn! Rome’s one and only Colosseum Family Tour is designed to engage the whole family, for a truly fun experience that is sure to be the highlight of your vacation.

Normal guided tours, even by the most well-intentioned and engaging guides, can often be boring for the younger members of your family. An early childhood education specialist specifically designed our 2-hour long Colosseum tour for families with children of around 7-12 years of age.

Learn and Be Entertained

The result is an exciting and engaging adventure through Rome’s most iconic monument. This is the perfect way to cater to your kids’ interest and energy levels while having an enjoyable time yourself! Role-playing, visuals, and challenges will keep everyone involved as the gladiator arena and Roman Forum are brought to life.

Your friendly guide will enthusiastically narrate the history of the Colosseum through stories and anecdotes about the brave men who fought here and the emperors who ruled them, creating vivid pictures of the past. Feel free to participate and encourage your kids to ask questions; your guide will create an open and interactive environment.

Make this a Tour to Remember

Your family will share this unique experience in the company of other families for a group totaling 25 people or fewer. Expert, kid-approved guides lead all tours. Their enthusiasm, energy and love for working with families make this experience one that you will not want to miss!

Important Notes

  • On this tour, some of the venues or parts of the venue may be subject to last-minute, unpredictable closures. When this occurs, we offer customers an extended tour in keeping with the advertised total length of the tour.
  • Due to increased security measures at many attractions some lines may form on tours with 'Skip the Line' access.
  • Please note that for security reasons, random identity checks can be carried out at the Colosseum by their staff.
    Please make sure you carry an ID or Passport with you on tour to ensure you will be able to enter the venue.


  • What is the difference between the Colosseum Family tour and the Group tour?

    While the group tour is a three hour tour, the Family Tour is a two hour tour which has been specially designed for children from 7 to 12 years old. Children will have educational activities in reading and writing format  and will discover about the Colosseum and Roman Forum in a fun way so that they engage in the activity and are kept entertained!

  • At the end of the tour, will I be able to explore the Colosseum on my own?

    If you wish to explore the Colosseum on your own after your tour, you should take our Express Colosseum Tour with Gladiator's Entrance and Special Arena Floor Access (with or without Breakfast). This gives you a guided tour of the Colosseum only. After the tour you can choose to either enjoy the skip-the-line entrance tickets to the Roman Forum (our guide would accompany you to enter but the visit is not guided) or stay inside the Colosseum without the guide.

     For any other tour however, our tours follow a pattern of visit and you would not be able re-enter the Colosseum without waiting in the line and purchasing an additional ticket.

  • It’s raining, is my tour still running?

    Yes. Our tours run rain or shine.
