Tour description

The Colosseum is one of the symbols of Rome is bound to be on the bucket list of all families coming to visit the Eternal city. Combining a tour of the Colosseum with a visit inside the nearby St. Clemente’s Basilica is an even better way to get to grips with the glorious past of Ancient Rome and it is also true if you are travelling with kids.  
Our Colosseum and Underground Rome Tour for Kids has been designed to allow young travelers to learn history whilst having fun. We have selected the best kid-friendly guide for you: follow them in this journey through time!

If you choose RPG you will meet with a child-friendly guide at the Colosseum, which you will enter with pre-booked access! Once inside the building, our guide will use all their knowledge, as well as visual aids such as ipads or 3D books, to share with you all they know about Rome’s ancient life, Pagan gods, Roman building techniques, gladiators’ combats, Roman emperors and senators. Our guides are trained to keep younger tourists engaged and will have your kids hanging on their every word!

Afterwards, on your way to St. Clemente's Basilica you will stop at the Ludus Magnus, the arena where gladiators used to train and learn combat techniques to use during the cruel fights.

Finally, you will reachSt. Clemente's Basilica, to visit its stunning undergrounds. This Basilica is one of the best places to learn about life in Ancient Rome, since the building features different levels, each dating back to different centuries. In the 1st century St. Clemente's Basilica was a real Roman house (one of the famous “insulae”,) while in the 2nd century it turned into a Mithraeum (the place where the Romans worshiped the God Mithra). One more jump forward in time and you will be in the 4th century, when St. Clemente’s Basilica was converted into an early Christian basilica. It will be like traveling in a time machine going back in the centuries: kids will love it!
