Family-centered tour for Colosseum or Vatican? Please help!

Jump to last reply

Planning our itinerary for our five day trip to Rome in April. Our children are 9, 12 & 16. We have already booked a Testaccio food tour through Eating Italy but would like to splurge on one more guided tour. I am leaning towards a tour of the Colosseum/Forum/Palantine Hill & possibly the Underground add-on option, but am now wondering if the kids would appreciate a Vatican tour instead. My husband and I have been to Rome and visited both sites and our gut is that they will get more out of the Colosseum. Regardless of which one we choose, we'd like it to have a family focus to keep our 9 year old engaged.

I am also overwhelmed by the number of tour companies and options. Considering family tours through Context Travel, Overome, Pinocchio Tours, Rome Private Guides and Viator (although I am a little skeptical of them).

Would love your opinions and suggestions/recommendations. Thanks in advance!
