Fly over the city in a helicopter

There's nothing quite like the excitement of sky-high adventure. With a helicopter tour of Rome you'll glide above the city's ochre rooftops and the surrounding Lazian countryside, studded with peaceful lakes and picturesque villages. An unforgettable experience, your kids will never forget the thrill of stepping into a helicopter and taking off into the sky for unbeatable bird's-eye views.

Ride the Appian Way on horseback

Follow in the footsteps of history by riding the Appian Way on horseback. One of the oldest and most important roads of the Roman Empire, it takes in archaeological locations, from villas to aqueducts and stunning natural sights. With itineraries and tours to suit all tastes and skill levels, both new and experienced riders will love being in the saddle.

Train to be a Gladiator for a day

After visiting the mighty Colosseum, bring history to life for your children with a special training class at the Gladiator School and Museum. Your little gladiators will be kitted out with tunics and training swords and taught the basics, engaging in safe battles and learning about the Romans from a real-life gladiator (aka expert instructors from the Gruppo Storico Romano).

Raft along the Tiber River

From historical excitement to pure adrenaline rush—why not take your family on an unforgettable river rafting adventure in the heart of Rome? You’ll set off from the right bank of the Tiber (near the Ponte Milvio bridge) and head downriver, taking on white water rapids and more gentle stretches.
