Highlights
  • Learn about the Colosseum and Roman Forum through games and stories
  • Avoid the Colosseum’s long general entry queue with skip-the-line access
  • Keep the kids engaged with commentary from a guide
  • Use your entrance ticket to visit the attractions again within two days
What to Expect
Meet your guide and walk past the general entrance line, which is often long, and step inside the Colosseum with your skip-the-line entrance ticket. Painting its history through stories of gladiators and wild beasts, your guide brings the amphitheater to life for little kids and big kids alike. From the ancient stadium, stroll to the nearby Roman Forum to see what life looked like for the early Romans. In the outdoor environment, kids have a bit more freedom to move around and touch things, while learning the history behind the ruins of the Arch of Titus, the emperor’s palace, and more. Your ancient Rome tour ends with an exit at the Roman Forum. Be sure to hold on to your entrance ticket as you can use it to return again within two days. When booking, choose from a private or small-group tour to suit the needs of you and your family. Small-gorup tours are limited to 12 guests for a personalized experience.
