What makes this tour so special?

There isn’t in Rome a monument that capture the kids’ imagination quite like the Colosseum; once a playground for gladiators and lions, there’s a magic that hangs in the air over the bleachers and arches there: this represents a guaranteed lifetime memory from a family trip to Rome. Furthermore the interactive booklet will catch and keep adults’ and children's attention with funny and witty exercises and challenges: because the real holiday is having fun together. Led by an expert and official guide, we specifically focus on the stories and anecdotes that bring the Colosseum to life than on facts and figures. By using interactive and visual aids in the booklet provided to guests at the beginning of the tour, our kid-friendly guides tailor their commentary to suit all their audience and allow all participants to share this challenging experience with other families, all guests will enjoy a relaxed environment for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We are mainly focused on the 6 – 12 year old kids, but this tour is suitable for adults - which are actively involved to co-operate with kids in finding solutions to quizzes - and teens too.
