So join us on this historical odyssey, where we’ll meet the gladiators who spilled blood on the arena sands of the Colosseum, the emperors who plotted and backstabbed their way to power in the Roman Forum, and the brave charioteers who risked life and limb for victory in the Circus Maximus. Throughout the tour, the kids will take part in a fun-filled treasure hunt. At the end, they will receive a fun, authentic Roman-themed gift!
Your Emperors and Gladiators tour starts in the Colosseum
Your expert, kids-friendly guide will bring to life the stories of the men and beasts who battled for survival in the Colosseum. Enrich yourselves with fun, relevant knowledge of the amphitheater you wouldn’t get anywhere else while our guide keeps your kids entertained with gruesome tales of the ancients.
For an additional price we can include the VIP areas of the Colosseum – the Colosseum Underground, the arena floor, and the third tier ‘Belvedere‘ – which all have limited public access. Visiting these areas will offer you a fuller immersion into the bloody history of this monument, increasing the length of your tour to four hours.
Space is very limited, so we do ask you to let us know if you have flexibility with your dates and times.
Venture along the Via Sacra and into the Roman Forum
The Roman Forum was the epicenter of life 2,000 years ago. Its temples, basilicas, meeting spaces, and speaking platforms lay at the center of the city whose empire stretched nearly 2 million square miles. Caesar was cremated here, Cicero gave speeches here, and during the tumultuous times of the late Republic, the heads of political enemies would be displayed here as a warning to others.
Your expert, kids-friendly guide will bring the monuments of the Roman Forum to life, honing in on the most interesting and engaging stories connected to each one. By the end of your adventure, you’ll be fascinated by Rome’s history and eager to go deeper exploring elsewhere in the Eternal City.
Ascend the Palatine Hill to explore the imperial palaces
The last part of your Gladiators and Emperors tour for kids takes you up the Palatine Hill, the site Romulus chose to found Rome and the cradle of the Eternal City. The numerous ancient sites and imperial palaces stretching across the Palatine Hill offer spectacular views over the Circus Maximus where chariots racers risked life and limb in the pursuit of honor and glory.
Your Gladiators and Emperors tour for kids can be customized to include other areas of ancient Rome, including the VIP access areas of the Colosseum. Get in touch with us today to check availability and introduce your kids to Rome’s remarkable history the right way.

She took us places we would have never chosen on our own and they were all amazing!
My only warning is that you will be full by the end of this tour—which is a great thing! We weren’t sure how much food would be provided, so we made late dinner reservations that we ended up canceling because we had plenty to eat on the tour!!
I highly recommend this experience, and highly recommend requesting Sara as your guide! read less - 4/01/2022

Sara was great and made the tour special. She has a great personality and is engaging. The chef, assistant, and team at Castel Gandolfo were all terrific to work with.
If there is one thing to do when visiting Rome after the major sites and time around the city, take this trip. read less - 12/03/2021

The driver picked us up from the hotel in Rome and drove to the Villa Adriana, where our guide, Barbara, met us. Thoroughly versed in ancient history and art history, she was a lively and fascinating guide. Never exhausting or boring, always good company, Barbara clearly loves what she does, sharing her knowledge of Rome and environs and deepening the appreciation of discerning travelers who want to learn about what they see. She was a good sport, because it was a windy rainy day, not ideal for a long day outdoors! I would definitely hire her again. read less - 11/04/2021

From the first inquiry through the tour they are also the most gracious and accommodating. Our most recent guide at the Vatican was TEO, knowledgeable, friendly, and someone who clearly loves the city of Rome.

I had some questions about the tour before booking - sent an email with responses prompt and the relevant information. We did the early morning Vatican Tour with Walks Inside Rome with our guide Barbara, who was amazing. Spending the extra money was worth the experience of WIR, in depth knowledge of the guide, early access to the Vatican and the path/route to see the highlights and relevant areas of the Vatican. Would highly recommend for anyone to book this tour, and would consider them for other tours next time in Rome! Thanks to the team at WIR and special shout out to Barbara who was so very considerate (my Mom was 89 years old and visiting the Vatican for the first time, making sure my Mom was at the front and able to see everything even though she was a tiny bit slower than everyone else! Grazie Mille! read less - 10/12/2021

I enjoy cooking, baking, etc so learning to make authentic Roman style pizza and a simple recipe for gelato is a skill I can take home! Our chef/instructor, Marco, was enthusiastic and his experience shown through as he explained what and why following the recipes was important. The kitchen space was well equipped and the dining space magical. Next time we’re in Rome (yes we tossed coins in the Trevi Fountain) we will take another course from his organization. read less - 9/27/2021
