On this itinerary you can show to your kids the most important monument of Rome, like the Colosseum, and let them discover the ancient history of Rome in a fun and modern way, like at the Time Elevator Cinema. Then you can have a nice, long walk down the famous streets of the city eating ice cream and shopping together.
We recommend you walk from one place to another since all the locations are in the city center.
It takes about 8 hours to visit the sites mentioned, depending on the amount of time you decide to stay in each place.
Day 2 starts from the Roman Colosseum that can be easily reached by subway at “Colosseo” (Line B). The Colosseum, also known as the Flavian Amphitheatre, or simply as Amphitheatrum, is one of Rome's most well known attractions. The great roman amphitheater was built during the Roman Empire (it was inaugurated in 80 AD) and had been used for performances to entertain the people of Rome, such as hunts and gladiatorial combats. You can also see some real “gladiators” in full costume around the square to get an idea of what they might have looked like! The visit will take around 60 minutes. Afterwards, take a walk along Via dei Fori Imperiali, at the end of which on the right, you’ll find Mercato Traiano. It was designed by Apollodorus of Damascus in 107 BC. We suggest you skip the tour inside of the archeological area as it takes such a long time, especially with younger children. The impressive Roman Forum is just across the street. At the end of the street you’ll arrive in Venice Square, where you can climb the steps to the Altar of the Fatherland and enjoy a beautiful view of the city. From there, you can go to the Holy Apostles square where you can visit the Wax museum. The gallery has 250 wax sculptures of famous italian and foreign people. Just around the corner you’ll find the Time elevator. This special 3D cinema opened in 2005 and is a fun way for your children to learn about the history of Rome! After the movie, take Via del Corso to get to the Colonna’s Gallery where you will find wonderful shops like Zara, Calvin Klein, La Rinascente and many others. Once you exit the gallery, you can continue down Via del Corso, where you’ll find the Disney Store, Intimissimi, Calzedonia, Guess, Energie, Zara, H&M and many beautiful shoes stores. At the end of Via del Corso, you’ll reach People’s Square where you can take the subway at “Flaminio” (Line A) or the train at Flaminio Station. Remember: Via del Corso is very long! If you’re travelling with small children, be prepared!
