What you’ll do

You’ll discover the family friendly Roman way of life with one of our hosts, and your tribe, by your side. Sure, the Eternal City may be crammed with classical treasures and ancient history, but we can’t all find the Vatican wildly entertaining - when you’re ten there’s other things you’d rather be doing, you know? Luckily for you, there’s nowhere better for a family trip than a city where family life is at the heart of everything - you’ll be welcomed into every pizzeria, gelateria and shop with open arms! From gladiator school where kids can have fun dressing up in tunics and training (yep, they exist), to walking through centuries of history and seeing Rome through the ages come to life, exploring ancient ruins to visiting the Castel Sant’Angelo, climbing the Dome of St Peter’s Basilica or going underground through 2000 of history in the Basilica Clemente - no one will be bored. If little legs get tired from walking through the cobbled streets, you can always visit a park, like Villa Borghese or Gianicolo, where you can see traditional puppet shows and hear cannons being fired at midday, or make a beeline for the nearest pizzeria or gelateria - your host knows just the place.
