With a child-specialist guide, you’ll explore the sites of Ancient Rome with your kids in an interactive way that includes visual aids, role playing and games. Plus, avoid the Colosseum’s main entrance line with fast-track admission. You’ll also visit the Roman Forum and see ancient landmarks like Trajan’s Column. This walking tour is limited to 25 people.

Your kid-friendly walking tour of the Colosseum and Ancient Rome starts near Trajan’s Column, where you’ll meet your guide and other members of the group, from kids to parents to grandparents. While you walk, participate in specially designed activities to keep your kids entertained and engaged, such as small challenges and role playing. These have been created by your guide, an early childhood educational specialist.

Take a look at Trajan’s Market, and hear tales about what life was like in Ancient Rome. As you visit the Roman Forum, once the heart of the city, admire ruins such as the Temple of Caesar. Stories about the power and influence of Imperial Rome are accompanied by visual aids to help spark imaginations.

Next, walk over to the Colosseum, Rome’s most iconic ancient site. Sail past the entrance line with your skip-the-line ticket, and go inside to tour the ground level of the arena with your guide. Hear tales about the different characters who made up the Colosseum’s ancient history of power and battle, from the emperors to the gladiators to the lions. Participation is encouraged, so don’t be afraid to ask any questions you have and get your kids involved in the interactive experience.

After about 40 minutes in the Colosseum, head outside, where your tour ends.

Our guide was great. She was knowledgeable, energetic, and young. She had really good visuals to help with her tour that help us envision life back then. We had a good pace. She helped us take pictures of our family. My grandchildren are in that awkward 13 and 14 yr old age. Thought the tour was really good for under 10 yrs. If your youth are into history and older, think this would be good too. The lesson on the Roman numerals could have been a little shorter, definitely geared toward the young.

Our tour was excellent for families. So educational.
We really got a sense of the cruelty that took place in the Colosseum thousands of years ago.

Our tour guide Alicia was delightful, friendly and very well informed. Highly recommend!

Perfect length for our kids. Enough breadth and depth to keep the adults engaged. Kept moving. Tour guide was adept at keeping us together and moving even with big crowds. Just enough stopping and talking to be informative but not lose the kids. This was an excellent experience. Best for kids 11 or younger, but older kids still enjoyed it.

Our tour guide was very engaging and informative. Unfortunately due to poor weather (it was raining), she had to modify her tour quite a bit, but managed to relay great information. Our kids enjoyed it very much - I would recommend this tour. It was nice to skip the long lines to get into the colosseum. Unfortunately we were not able to see much of the forum due to poor weather, but the tour guide did a great job despite the obstacles!

This truly is a family focused tour. Our guide kept our 9 and 10 year olds engaged during a very hot summer day. She had the group periodically sit in shady spots and play games that related to the ancient Roman period. The Colosseum is a crowded spot and we got so much more out of the excursion with this tour than doing it any other way.

I think the group would have liked more time inside the colosseum instead of standing outside of the colosseum. The accent of the guide was also strong and hard to understand.

This was a terrific walk through the Colosseum and the Roman Forum! We had a moderately sized group of about 22 people and that was the only down side.
Our guide was pleasant and knowledgeable. It included fun handouts like a Roman crown for the kids and she had a picture book to help explaining.
