Heroes of Rome and a Percy Jackson experience with Rome4Kids
Sometimes the hardest part about travelling with your family is making sure you and your children have fun. You don’t want them to get bored, but you also want to make sure they come away from your adventures having learned something. After all, travel broadens the mind and you know that if you can cultivate curiosity and a thirst for knowledge, your children’s talents and passions will blossom.
Single mother Katja Hansel knew this when she started Rome4Kids Tours and Europe4Kids Tours. Her companies’ goals are to make sure you can relax, and your children have fun while learning valuable lessons in the process.
Katja carefully chooses her tour guides by hand because she knows that a great tour guide is the difference between a pile of ruins and an exciting ancient metropolis. Her guides custom tailor their tours to your interests, your pace, and your needs. No more will you have to worry about boring, regurgitated lectures and you can rest easy knowing that Katja’s guides will leave you and your children feeling happy and excited.
With Rome4Kids, you can experience a number of family tours of Rome and Vatican City; you can take day trips; you can even take cooking classes. And with tours offered not only in English, but in German, Italian, French, Spanish, Russian, Chinese, and even more languages, there’s no need for any family to look anywhere else for all of their tourism needs.
An absolute must in the Rome4Kids inventory is the “Heroes of Olympus Hunt”. This private tour will energize your kids as they explore the Capitoline Museums — one of Rome’s oldest and most fascinating collections. Based around the smash hit Percy Jackson and the Olympians series, the “Heroes of Olympus Hunt” will have you exploring your favorite myths and heroes.
Wander down the corridors of one of the world’s most prestigious museum of ancient art. You will find centuries-old busts and statues staring back at you. They hold more history in their eyes than you can believe. You can visualize them lining ancient baths, plazas, and villas. If you’re imaginative enough, you can see them come to life. They have stories to tell if you listen.
Their stories, these ancient Roman myths and legends have captivated audiences for centuries upon centuries. Just like the structures of ancient Rome remain pillars of the city to this day, the stories of ancient Rome inspire us still. On the “Heroes of Olympus Hunt” you will find yourself inspired by these stories. You will find yourself with the gods, the heroes, and the monsters.
Throughout your quest you will follow in the steps of Percy Jackson and hunt for gods like Mars, Neptune, and Venus. Remember these are the Roman gods, so there are no satyrs, only fauns, and Mars, Neptune, and Venus replace Ares, Poseidon, and Aphrodite. You can gaze at the great gods and experience their image in 3D! You can even stare into the eyes of Medusa and see if her powers still work. No computer animation here — these are the heroes, monsters, and gods as they were imagined 2,000 years ago.
Katja’s tours are flexible, and you can schedule them whenever you want. For the “Heroes of Olympus Hunt”, make sure to bring a camera, and dress in appropriate clothes for the museum. Expect to learn a lot over the course of the 2.5 hour hero hunt from a guide who has tailored the tour to your family’s interests.
There is no more exciting way to experience the Capitoline Museums, and you can rest assured that you and your family will be thoroughly entertained throughout your entire stay.
