Whilst youngsters are embarking on an Italian adventure, adults can watch live football World Cup 2018 matches at the pop-up Chalet Stadium or simply enjoy Rome Cavalieri’s luxurious facilities including the award-winning Grand Spa Club and dining at La Pergola restaurant, the first and only three-Michelin starred restaurant in Rome.
Mini aspiring chefs can master the art of perfecting that perfect pizza or pasta dish, followed by a tempting tiramisu or millefoglie for dessert, under the expert guidance of Rome Cavalieri’s culinary masters. There will also be a dedicated Nutella corner in the IT Kids Club showcasing the chocolate-hazelnut treat in the form of an array of treats, including crepes, waffles, and other gourmet snacks.
Little-ones can embrace mindfulness with a Tai Chi and Yoga Day taking place every Wednesday. Kids will learn the ancient Chinese art of Tai Chi, whilst improving their emotional wellbeing and physical health.
Learn a New Skill
Youngsters can learn a new skill with an exciting assortment of daily activities on offer including magic tricks, drama, chess class, dominoes and accessories creation.
Experience Life in the Fast Lane
Little auto enthusiasts can take a miniature battery-operated Vespa for a spin around the IT Kids Club, with a miniature reproduction created by Peg-Pérego in collaboration with Piaggo. Alternatively, those with a need for speed can discover the thrill of driving a classic Italian Ferrari, via simulator.
Train like a Gladiator
Little-ones can embrace Roman culture as they train to become gladiators, with ancient combats taught by Rome’s Gladiatorial School. Children will dress up in a full gladiator kit donning a tunic, Roman sandals, protective gloves and a wooden sword. Upon passing the course, youngsters will receive a medal for “Tiro” or “first level gladiator”.
