You’ll discover the family friendly Roman way of life with one of our local Rome 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.

  • Discover family-friendly highlights like Castel Sant’Angelo or the Basilica Clemente

  • See Rome’s history come to life as you explore exciting neighbourhoods

  • Visit a gelateria recommended by your host and taste authentic gelato

  • Relax or explore a well-loved local park with great views of the city

  • Get recommendations for other family-friendly attractions and restaurants

Best days out!

Gerry was an incredible host for me and my four year old son. Helpful with manuvouring the pram and taking time and effort to make sure we were all ok and having a good time. He was flexible and adaptive to our needs and really easygoing. His passion for Rome is obvious and infectious. I'd love to come back. Thank you so much Gerry! Rome would not have been the same without you!

Reviews for Rome

Rome with a guide is best

Having someone to guide you around a city like Rome is the way to go. We saw churches and art that we would not have necessarily found on our own. Our guide was knowledgeable, easy to talk to and we had a great time.

Tour of Rome

We had a great walking tour of Rome with Gerry. He was very knowledgeable, friendly, and spoke very understandable English. He determined the sites to visit as we didn't have anything special we wanted to see. He took us to very outstanding places and we saw things that we hadn't seen during our previous 2 days of touring Rome. I highly recommend using him as a guide to the city.

Wine tasting

Gerry found an expert sommelier Umberto, with his own "enoteca" loaded with hundreds of bottles of wine. We were given 3 white and 3 red wines to try with nibbles and masses of background info. On the grape, the method and the bottlers. Umberto was very informative and our day was enjoyable.
