Tel. 06 67611  |      

Designed for families with kids aged 6-11, this esclusive guided tour of Villa Medici will turn the little ones into experienced art explorers with a busy programme of creative workshops, games and educational activities! Surrounded by hidden treasures and mythological stories, participants will embark on a journey of fun, learning and discovery in the footsteps of fantasy creatures made of different materials such as marble, bronze or paint.

The Villa’s history is closely tied to a number of noble Roman families, as well as to gods and monsters from the Greek myths. The tour is enlivened by tales of the gardens’ secrets and of the plants and animals which once lived here – and in some cases still do. Lasting some 90 minutes, this is an interactive visit based on ongoing exchange (in Italian) between the guide, the children and the adults.
