• Ancient Rome – Colosseum for Kids Tour •

Touring a museum or an archaeological area with your children can be a challenge: tours are not often tailored for children and teenagers. If you are looking for an Ancient City family tour, we believe that our kid friendly tour guides will make a difference!

Colosseum for kids tour:  enjoy and learn archaeology with all the family!

It might seem like a challenge to have the whole family really enjoy a tour of a museum or archaeological site: guided tours rarely cater to the interests of children or teenagers or adapt their scripts to your family’s needs and pace.  The specially selected guides on our Colosseum for Kids Tour know it’s not just about re-enacting gladiator fights and playing … It’s about making them enjoy a unique experience!

This private 2 hour Colosseum for Kids Tour will give all your family the chance to experience a new and more personalized way to visit the city, it’s perfect for all ages and is an engaging introduction to the magic atmosphere of the ancient Rome, its facts and gods!

How does the Colosseum for kids tour works?

You’ll skip the line and enter the Colosseum right away – just a quick security check – and the tour will be ready to start.

We will visit the ground level and the first tier of the Amphitheatre. Your tour guide will be local, licensed and will interact especially with your children explaining to them the adventurous story of the largest stadium in the Roman Empire! Give the entire family an overview of Ancient Roman history, life, loves and (of course!) shows and gladiator fights!

Swords and spears, lions and tigers, slaves and love affairs, political conspiracies and gigantic gilded bronze statues … All of this was part of the every day shows in the Colosseum almost 2000 years ago and you will relive it all through your guide’s words, making your Colosseum experience unforgettable. This tour is litterally a fun and engaging learning experience and you’ll use vacation time to make your children understand ancient roman history…Live from the archaelogical sites! 

What is the Colosseum for kids tour about?

You will learn about the combats and behind the scenes facts, you’ll see where the gladiators barracks were and where wild animals, prisoners condemned to death and hunters were kept before combat started. If you think that gladiator fights were the only shows performed in this amphitheatre, you’ll be surprised to know how much more made a day at the Colosseum great

If you are also looking for a focus and help on specific primary homework, you have special requests about roman gods and religion, just let us know and we will taylor our tour arounf your children!

No need to climb the steep steps: the first tier is accessible by an elevator and our guide will take care of the whole family with a special care for anyone with mobility problems. You will set the pace of this tour and there’s no rush, this is your tour! The Colosseum is weelchair and stroller accessibile and easy to visit with one, but we cannot provide them.
