BEFORE TO GET TO MUSEUMS FOR KIDS, DON’T FORGET TO…
A good idea could be exploring Rome’s highlights with one of my tours of the city: you can choose between 2 different paths, Ancient and Classic Rome. The first one is a full immersion journey into the Imperial age, including an guided visit inside the Colosseum (skip the line tickets!) and an amazing overview of the Roman Forum and the Capitol Hill. If you wish to know more about different styles and ages of Rome, the Classic tour is perfect! An overview on the Colosseum and the Forum and then a jump into the baroque in Navona Square, a nice walk to the Pantheon and its secrets and – last but not least – a real taste of roman life in Campo de’ Fiori square! Kids will have fun playing with their booklet, solving games and riddles together with you and the expert guide.
