Traveling with the family is meant to be an unforgettable and fun experience! But if planned incorrectly, your trip could prove to be less of a hit with the family if the activities you choose don’t suit your children’s interests. That’s why here at Eyes of Rome we have searched several kid-friendly places around the city and created tours that will be enjoyed by the whole family!
For younger children…
Gelato and Pizza Making class- Always a hit, this class is one of our most exciting experiences you can have with your family in Rome! Specialty chefs will make cooking fun and easy to do. Your kids will love to try their creations when they’re done!
Family Scavenger Hunt- This tour makes learning history fun as your child will need to listen to the hints given by your guide. Your younger kids will enjoy exploring the city while searching for the small prizes!
A day as a Gladiator at the Colosseum- Your children will feel like they’ve been transported to the past as they experience what life was like for the brave gladiators that fought the intense and exciting battles in the colosseum!
Artist for a Day- For your creative children, this workshop is perfect. Your children will be able to create their own mosaic, fresco or painting masterpiece! Please note, this is an extension that can be an ‘add-on’ to your earlier tour but can’t be an experience on its own. We recommend pairing this workshop with our Scavenger Hunt!
Gelato and Pizza Making class- This class will be loved even by your older kids!
The Catacombs- The catacombs are eerie and cave-like; oftentimes on our tours of the Catacombs, it’s the teens that express the most interest in it’s dark and mysterious tales.
Graffiti in Ostiense- Ostiense has become a trendy neighborhood in South Rome. The buildings’ facades are adorned with colorfully striking murals that are sure to interest your teens! There are also cool galleries, restaurants and shops as well as a 2,000-year-old Egyptian pyramid to check out with your private guide. We recommend combining this extension to another tour.
MAXXI Contemporary Art Museum- Another popular destination for teenagers is the MAXXI museum. The hyper-modern exterior will be a fascinating change of scenery from the usual antiquated sights around Rome. Filled with contemporary art from around the world, your guide will make intriguing connections between the past and the present. We recommend combining this extension to another tour.
