As you reach out and touch the walls of the Colosseum, you'll get to learn about the life, love, death and victory that these walls have witnessed over the centuries. During this part of the treasure hunt, your guide will make sure each child feels as popular as the gladiators who fought in the arena, and as important as the emperors and empresses who decided their fate! There are plenty of hidden symbols to find inside, spread over the two floors of the arena!

Bringing Ancient Rome Back to Life

After your children have conquered the Colosseum, your guide will set the scene of ancient Rome as the children lead the way over to the Roman Forum. Now, it's time to walk the streets that Julius Caesar and Augustus once tread upon!

You'll also visit a sacred garden and discover how Roman's used to spend their free time in the city, all while your children are pointing out the remaining treasures on the map. The storytelling and treasure hunt will come to an end inside the Roman Forum.

Instead of just listening to a guide, the kids are looking, searching, and answering questions, while the parents can enjoy the archeological sites and the stories from the guide.

Perfect for my girls

My wife and I really wanted to see the Colosseum (how can you go to Rome and not see it?!), but we have two young girls. We knew that they wouldn't have the patience to do a normal tour, so we decided to try this out. It was perfect! Our guide was so funny and engaging with the girls and I found myself just as interested in the treasure hunt as them. I would really recommend this tour for young families. My wife and I learned a lot, the girls had fun, so everyone was happy! Thanks!

Best family tour

We decided to book this to keep our kids entertained because we know how much they hate sightseeing. The scavenger hunt worked like a charm! My oldest loves gladiators so this was a dream come true. Thank you to the Roman guy! We will be back.

Great for kids

I wasn't sure this would be worth it compared to the regular group Colosseum tour, but it was so fantastic for my kiddos. Normally they'd find this kind of thing boring, but the guide kept them engaged and entertained! Great for all ages, fantastic tour.
