This tour will include two of Rome's most popular tourist attractions, the Colosseum and the Roman Forum.
Meet your guide just next to the Colosseum and, with our special skip-the-line access, you'll waste no time in absorbing the awe-inspiring majesty of one of the world's most famous landmarks. History will be brought to life as your expert guide enthralls you with evocative tales of how life was lived in ancient Rome, and how thousands gathered to be entertained and excited by the sight of gladiators and wild animals literally fighting for their lives in what was often a gory, bloody spectacle.
Your Colosseum experience will be followed by a stroll to another iconic symbol of Rome, the Roman Forum, which for hundreds of years was a focal point for the everyday lives of the citizens of ancient Rome. It once witnessed triumphant processions to reinforce the power of the empire, and it was also a political hub where elections were held and important political figures would address the masses. Moreover, it was an important centre for trade.
There will be no time for the children to get bored! Firstly, they will be outside all the time rather than walking around what they may see as stuffy, boring museums, and furthermore, our expert kid-friendly guide will know how to maintain their interest with exciting tales of battles, treason, plotting and all manner of intrigue and subterfuge. They will come into direct contact with that history, they will be able to touch, smell and breathe it, with much more freedom than they would have in a museum or art gallery.
This interactive walking tour lasts for two and a half hours and can be taken on any day of the week, with the exception of some public holidays. Booking in advance is recommended as tours often sell out and places are not always available for last minute enquiries.
