Often a visit to a historical sight might become an exhausting experience for your family, especially the younger ones. The Unique Skip the Line Colosseum Family Tour for Kids is one-of-a-kind package tailored specifically for families with younger children of around 7-12 years of age. This is the only group Colosseum tour designed by a childhood education specialist.

Inarguably the most majestic structure of the Roman Empire, the Colosseum (originally known as the Flavian Amphitheatre) is inhabited by a myriad of tales of bravery, public life and royalty in ancient Rome. Despite the pillage of natural disasters, fires, pollution and wars, it is living proof of the enduring architecture and masonry of an ancient world, and has served as a model for stadiums around the world. Your expert English-speaking tour guide will bring history alive with the use of props, visual aids and re-enactments that will spark the imagination of your kids. The tour is sure to make the experience engaging and memorable not only for your kids, but the entire family as well.

During the course of the tour, personal headsets are provided so that your guide can keep his/her voice at a pleasant, conversational level. The headsets will make it easier to enjoy the sights and keep an eye on the kids without getting left behind.

A perfect way to cater to your kids’ interest and energy levels, the guide’s enthusiasm and love for working with families make this experience one that you will not want to miss!

For the Unique Skip the Line Colosseum Family Tour for Kids, you will meet your English-speaking guide at Trajan’s Column, an ancient structure dating from 112 AD, located on Via dei Fori Imperiali next to Piazza Venezia. This tour is limited to small groups, so you are guaranteed an intimate and unique experience.

Outside the Colosseum you will visit the Roman Forum, the central area around which ancient Rome developed. Filled with beautiful statues and buildings, it is a hub of stunning architecture and was a platform for public speeches in 203 AD. One of the major highlights of this area is the Forum of Julius Caesar built in 46 BC.

Skip the line for a quick entry to the Colosseum where the guide will talk about the history and architecture of the extraordinary site in a way that is captivating for both children and adults.

The guide will take your family to the time way back when the Colosseum was all about gladiatorial contests, mock sea battles and a source of entertainment for emperors and the public; with the help of props, visual aids and re-enactments. Role-playing, visuals, and challenges will keep everyone involved as the gladiator arena and Roman Forum are brought to life. Every single detail will be presented in a simple and entertaining way so that you and your family can have a memorable experience.

Your guide will create an open and interactive environment so feel free to participate and encourage your kids to ask questions. Your kids will be rewarded with a delicious gelato at the end of their adventure!

Customer reviews

Was made engaging for the children but more time was spent around Trajan's column and the Forum than in the Colosseum itself. This should be perhaps reflected in the description/name of the tour.
