    What to Expect
    Enjoy a 2.5 hour enthralling journey through the Capitoline Museums of Rome exploring Ancient myths, meeting the Olympian Gods, discovering Satyrs and other mysterious creatures, hearing the teaching of famous philosophers. Taken by the hand of a specialist local guide, you will learn about all the characters of Greek and Roman Mythology mentioned in the popular books and movies your kids know well! 
    The Capitol Galleries are considered one of the best collections of Ancient Art in the world and they contain unique masterpieces. You will get familiar with the bronze She-Wolf statue, symbol of Rome, the portait of Emperor Constantine, the Boy with Thorn, the bust of Poet Homer, Hercules, Venus and many others. You will learn how the Ancient Romans used to play, see a real tomb of a gladiator, decipher the ancient calendars and more. You will also come face to face with almost all the main characters of Percy’s adventures: monsters like the one-eyed Polyphemus, the scary Medusa, the almighty Jupiter, Athena and Ares.

    My 10-year old son thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Valeria was amazing and kept him interested and involved. He would have been bored if we had just taken him to the museum, but Valeria brought it to life and he learned so much!
