#1 LET YOUR KIDS TRY THEIR HAND AT BEING A GLADIATOR IN ROME

This action-packed trip through Italy has everything and more to keep the whole family engaged and entertained. We’ve delved deep to bring you the great Italian classics with a twist that’s bound to put a smile on everyone’s faces. One of our favorite experiences? Head back in time with the kids as you all enrol in Gladiator School at none other than the famous Colosseum, where, armed with a (blunt) sword and shield, you’ll learn about the history of Romans and challenge each other to a duel. After you’ve donned a centurion helmet, you’ll spend some time choosing your favorite toppings in a pizza-making masterclass, zipping through alleyways on a vintage Vespa and playing football at Borgo Egnazia.

#4 TAKE THE KIDS INTO (AND OVER) THE JUNGLE BY ZIP-LINE ON THIS ACTION-PACKED TRIP TO COSTA RICA

Costa Rica is the ultimate vacation destination, and we’ve created an itinerary your kids will be talking about for years to come. Tucked away in the Talamanca Mountains lies one of the best eco-lodges in Costa Rica, Pacuare Lodge, where you’ll wake up to the sound of howler monkeys swinging through the rainforest and the Pacuare river flowing by. Let the children enjoy an early morning dip in the plunge pool, before heading out for a day of action-packed child-friendly adventures; each easily scaled up or down depending on age and ability. From kayaking and white water rafting down the river to zip-lining through the jungle canopy, we promise no one will get bored.
