The Best Family-Friendly Colosseum Tour

Colosseum, Rome, Italy

Exploring one of the new seven wonders of the world means we can’t waste any time getting started! Your guide will meet you outside the Colosseum and allow you to skip the line as you get fast-tracked into the world-famous Colosseum.

Here you will learn all about the famous Gladiator games where the combatants battled each other, and sometimes even faced off against vicious exotic animals like lions and tigers, in order for a chance at freedom!

Kids will revel in the engaging story-telling that features the incredible true stories of the men and women (and Gladiators of course!) who became legends in the famous structure. Be enthralled as your guide dramatically reveals the role this incredible monument played in the fascinating political games at the heart of Ancient Roman society.

Our family-friendly tour is fun for all as we will see history come alive using a 3D book while we work our way through the Colosseum.

Part 2 of Our Colosseum Tour For Kids – Basilica of San Clemente

If the children haven’t had all the fun they can handle for the day at the Colosseum then we have even more intrigue in store for them as we take a short walk to begin an exciting tour of the Basilica of San Clemente, known as the “layer church” to find out how excavation after excavation revealed each layer underneath it.

This 12th-century church starts at street-level, however, your guide will then take you down deeper and deeper as you descend down the various layers and dating back centuries as you go further into the earth.

On the final level will find a surprise waiting for us with a 1st-century Roman dwelling. Kids will love the closest thing to time-travel that the modern-day world can offer while you enjoy the sensation of traversing centuries in one day!

What Makes Our Colosseum Tour So Family-Friendly?

The Colosseum is an incredible sight, but the best way for kids to really visualize the scale and importance of this iconic and historic landmark is to have the past brought to life by an enthusiastic, passionate, and experienced private guide.

Our guides have worked with kids of all ages, from toddlers all the way up to late teens, and have a keen understanding of how to tailor the tour to the group’s taste and to every child’s level.

We highly recommend the Tours by Luxe experience! During our week in Rome in July, Amy and her fabulous assistants Irenes P and V put together two wonderful tours for us. Our first was a tour of the Vatican Museum accompanied by our guide Jessica, the second to the Colosseum, Palatine Hill and Forum with Letizia. Both guides were knowledgeable, entertaining and fun. We all got a lot out of the tours - it’s so much better than wandering around by yourselves. Discovering secret messages in famous art works or having centuries old graffiti pointed out is just thrilling. It’s also fabulous bypassing the queues and having air-conditioned transfers to and from the sites. We highly recommend the Tours by Luxe experience.
