What to Expect
This tour begins at a centrally located meeting point near Trajan’s Column, right on the edge of the Roman Forum. Meet your guide and set off on an accessible tour of Trajan’s Market and the Roman Forum. Your guide is a specialist in early childhood education, and has prepared a number of challenges, activities, and fun stories that are designed to engage kids and adults alike. Optional audio headsets are also available for larger groups, so you don’t miss any of your guide’s stories. After your stroll through the Roman Forum, you’ll continue onwards to the Colosseum. This Roman icon always has long entry lines; skip-the-line access, however, means you’ll beat the crowds and head straight inside. Once inside the Colosseum, admire the sights and listen to your guide’s stories and fun facts about the gladiators, emperors, and wild animals that once frequented the landmark. Additional interactive experiences will help bring the history alive for younger visitors. The tour concludes just in front of the Colosseum, where young travelers enjoy a gelato.
