A city so full of history that it is practically an open-air museum, Rome is arguably your best bet for combining a luxury family holiday with helping your children ace their next history test. Easily accessible from the UK, the city is overflowing with cultural and architectural wonders as well as family-friendly restaurants, hotels and activities.

Condensing the treasures of Rome into one trip is no easy feat, which is why our experts are - as their title would suggest - expert at creating trips to suit the needs of the whole family. Famous for the millennia of history captured within its walls, the marvels of Rome are best discovered on foot. From the awe-inspiring Pantheon built by the emperor Hadrian (of Hadrian's Wall fame) with its domed ceiling, to the busy food market at Campo de' Fiori. Wonder between the present and the past, through the Forum of ancient Rome to the iconic pillared walls of the Colosseum. Take a private guided tour of the Colosseum and let stories of gladiators and games capture the whole family's imagination, before delighting the little ones in a private workshop showing them how to become gladiators themselves, bringing Ancient Rome to life. Prepare yourself for the opulence of St. Peter's Basilica and its cavernous halls filled with the history of ages and the prayers of millions, where even the most energetic of children will be stunned into silence. With so much to see and to do, let us arrange a private walking tour of the city for the whole family. Our guides are wizards when it comes to keeping children entertained, filling their heads with stories of empires rising and falling, and ensuring that they are the perfect level of exhausted at the end of the day.

Pizza, pasta and ice cream are probably high on most children's dinner wish lists (and let's face it, adults too) and the wonderful array of traditional Italian dishes on offer in Rome are sure to appeal to even the pickiest of eaters. For a gastronomic experience no one will forget in a hurry, enjoy a private family lesson in pizza or pasta making - the perfect way to get the kids interested in food and cooking. For quieter evenings we can recommend the best child-friendly trattorias or pizzerias, for easy family fun.
