If your kids are into archaeology or gladiators, traipsing the ruins of ancient Rome can provide hours of entertainment. What child can resist climbing the giant steps of the Colosseum? Taking a photo with one of those kitschy gladiators in front of the Colosseum will win some smiles and give your child a great souvenir to show off at home. Some of these Russell Crow lookalikes have helmets and cloaks for tourists to try on and a sword to brandish into the bargain. Remember to bargain the “photo fee” beforehand. It shouldn’t be more than €5.
