It is no doubt that Rome is one of the world's greatest attractions. With a rich and ancient history it is no wonder so many families come to marvel at this wondrous city. We know travelling with kids can impact your itinerary which is why we have found great guides who make the highlights of Rome a family fun adventure and learning experience even for the youngest of travelers. Together we will travel back in time to reenact and hear stories of the great Roman Empire, the most powerful in the world and Rome the largest city. Learn about patricians and plebeians, the difference in lifestyle, as well as great emperors, slaves and gladiators.

We begin with a visit to the Colosseum, the first amphitheater built in Rome, and one of the city's most magnificent tourist attractions today. Cemented in memory by popular culture, Gladiators are remembered as brave fighters. In actuality, many had no choice and were slaves who fought for their lives for the entertainment for others, viewed as disposable beings. Learn about their diets as well as what weapons they used and how these things resulted in bloody fighting and a spectacle the whole city came to witness.

We'll continue on to Palatine Hill where you will hear the most famous story told throughout Rome while peaking through the magic keyhole. Legend has it that this is where brothers Romulus and Remus were found by a wolf who raised them into adulthood. As they were sons of a God they decided it was their destiny to build a city and rule as the king. They fought to be the city's ruler and only one brother survived.

We will take a break for lunch and see the Trevi Fountain, which, after much restoration, will once again take your coins. After, we will visit Castel Sant'Angelo which was first built as a mausoleum to the Emperor Hadrian and his royal family and throughout the years turned into fortress of the pope and today it stands as a museum.

This tour is not just for the kiddos and can be enjoyed by any family wanting to experience a whirlwind tour of Rome!

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
