5 Kid-Friendly Tour Companies in Rome, Italy
It is easy to be overwhelmed by Rome as a tourist. Busy streets, long lines at the historic landmarks, and thousands of years of history to take in. Especially with kids, I encourage not sticking to too strict of a scheduled and allowing time to wander. However, planning a day tour with a kid-friendly company can enhance your experience in Rome. Tour companies dedicated to families can captivate kids with exciting details and compelling stories that help bring the history of Rome to life.
Tour guides that work exclusively with families will be understanding of the occasional meltdown and random questions kids may ask. They know how to excite kids and get them involved in the tour.
I’ve included a list of five tour companies in Rome that work exclusively with kids and families. I offer discounts for some of these companies when you download my FREE Ultimate Travel Planner for Italy with Kids here.
