iconOffered in: English

Lasting over one thousand years, the period of ancient Rome, with its many emperors, warriors, poets, and myths, can be tricky to understand. This tour is designed to give families an entry point for Roman antiquity, and is an excellent starting point for any Roman adventure. Our walk brings families into the archaeological heart of the city where we will encounter the story of Romulus and Remus, the artistic and political achievements of the emperors, and the everyday lives of ancient Roman citizens. Centered around the Colosseum, our emphasis is on engaging the kids in the group and helping them frame and understand key concepts about ancient Rome. Our guide will help explore the construction and history of this monument and paint a picture of its history by stimulating a lively discussion. If the stories of gladiators interest the group, we'll look into the Ludus Magnus.
