Buongiorno il ritrovo è alle 7.45 ma in realtà ci vuole ancora circa un'ora per entrare inoltre la descrizione VIP dava idea di avere un tour guidato VIP per poche persone invece eravamo in circa 15 persone e la guida ha fatto una introduzione prima di entrare in cappella sistina e poi si era liberi

It’s a family day on this Colosseum tour! Avoid the long queues and step into the Colosseum with special skip-the-line access for a unique and educational experience. Enriched with information about Roman history, culture, and gladiatorial knowledge – this tour is designed for young minds aged 7 to 11 in particular.

Listen to your official tour guide for tales of gladiators and their death-defying deeds, the history of the Flavian Amphitheatre from the first laying of the foundation stone to the day of its inauguration in 80 AD, the importance of these games during the Roman era, and more. You’ll also be given an insight into the life story of Flavius Attilius – one of the greatest gladiators of the Colosseum.

A dynamic and engaging experience, kids are encouraged to actively participate in the tour by answering questions in a quiz through the use of their own smartphones.
