Learn about the Colosseum on a tour designed for all the family!

Your kid-friendly walking tour of the Colosseum and Ancient Rome starts near Trajan’s Column, where you’ll meet your guide and other members of the group, from kids to parents to grandparents. While you walk, participate in specially designed activities to keep your kids entertained and engaged, such as small challenges and role playing.

We did the family friendly colosseum tour and it was amazing. My kids are shy so being called out to answer questions wasn't their thing, but I was happy to see them get involved. Our tour guide was excellent with kids, she had a lot of laminated pictures to show the kids to explain things and it helped to understand what the Colosseum used to look like. My only regret is they don't give you very much time in the actual Colosseum, inside the ring. We saw a lot of the exhibits and learned a lot about the outside, but actual time in the Colosseum was limited. We had to pull our kids away from the tour to snap some quick photos. Overall, I would highly recommend this tour.

Very good tour and great info for kids. It was very hot during our tour, and Guya did a great job of finding us shade. My son, 6, loved it. Guya was able to keep the kids interested with stories and some great illustrations.

Fantastic tour - very kid friendly. Our guide was Jeanne sp?? -- also called herself Mama Jeanne....Simply superb, included all the children into the history of the Colisseum. Played some interactive games, asked questions and kept the children very engaged. Seriously all you need to do as parents is to take pictures. You still get a really good flavor of the Colisseum and its history. The tour ends at the Roman Forum. Lasts 2 hours. Highly recommended for families with younger kids
