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.

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. When the adventure ends there will also be a refreshing gelato to reward the kids.
