Keep your kids engaged with mythology and learn it’s more fun than cartoons!

Are your kids crazy about ancient gods and history? Do they definitely know more than you know about it?? (…and you keep wondering when did they learn all that stuff!). If you want to offer your curious kids an unforgettable experience and if you want to show your kids that Percy Jackson stories all (most) real…you can’t miss a kids tour to the Capitoline Museums!

An enchanting Museum (the oldest one in Rome!) displays some of the most important artifacts and statues of personalities and gods of the ancient Roman times, such as the original famous she-wolf, a golden statue of the strong Hercules with his club, the beautiful Venus ready to bath, or the creepy skinned alive Marsia.

Let Kids fall in love with the stories, let them touch Roman history with their hands!

it will be exciting and engaging! They will forget electronic devices for a few hours and admire 2000 years old statues and stories!

Your kids will be teleported into the ancient times, at the time the city of Rome was founded, they will enjoy the charming and fun legends of the ancient Rome through the myths painted on the walls of this museum: they will meet Romulus and Remus, the she wolf, Hercules and fearless roman soldiers!!

They will learn how bronze and marble statues were made and they will walk in a roman street at night, guided by the stars and surrounded by mysterious inscriptions, like a citizen of Rome 2000 years ago!

Let your kids discover Rome’s antiquity and have more fun than with cartoons!

This is a 2 hour experience with highly selected guides, trained for kids tours and most of all…in love with kids! Your kids will learn about Roman mythology, they will see with their eyes what they have read about! They will have fun and learn at the same time!

Our guides will keep them engaged with tests and riddles while exploring the Capitoline Museums, will challenge them with drawings and questions and two hours will go by learning and exploring!
