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!

Wonderful!

This tour was great for adults and kids! We had Ana as our guide and she was very nice knowledgeable. She had lots of pictures to help compare what it looked like before and now. The kids loved the scavenger hunt and prize. Everything was amazing to see! We would definitely recommend to others!

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.
