Calling all young people and the parents they're supervising for the day on this family-fun introduction to the big bad city of Rome.

A short performance by the Roman character of Rea Silvia, played by your actor-guide, makes sense of the complex history of Ancient Rome. Learn how this amazing city was built -- albeit not in a day -- back when the Consuls ruled and the Empire expanded at breakneck speed.

Continue by coach to the starting point of a great walking tour. Set out from Lungotevere Zanardelli, close to Piazza Navona. Along the way you will catch a glimpse of several Rome highlights -- Tiber Island, St Peter's Basilica and Sant' Angelo Castle.

At Piazza Navona, a costume change for your guide signals a switch to Baroque Rome. All the kids will be involved in an interactive theatrical performance with the character of Donna Olimpia, again played by your talented guide. Some fun games bring to life the mystery and intrigue of the ancient and secret history of the famous Fountain of the Four Rivers in the middle of the square, built by sculptor Bernini. Captivating stories and legends fire the imagination before you step inside the Pantheon.

Discover the colorful, bustling market at Piazza Campo de Fiori -- the perfect place to 'return' to modern Rome. A third character played by your guide -- a village woman -- appears and introduces your family to the contemporary lifestyle of the locals. To ensure complete cultural immersion, she offers a typical local snack that is devoured with gusto by Italian kids and by visitors -- the famous, crispy, totally delicious Roman pizza.

Your family will have one hour of free time before meeting at the coach to hit the road back to the port at Civitavecchia.

Notes:

Wear comfortable walking shoes. On April 14, 2018 the tour route and duration may be affected by the Grand Prix street closures; your patience with any delays is greatly appreciated.
