The result is an exciting and engaging adventure through Rome’s most iconic monument. This is the perfect way to cater to your kids’ interest and energy levels while having an enjoyable time yourself! Role-playing, visuals, and challenges will keep everyone involved as the gladiator arena, and Roman Forum are brought to life.

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