A Kid’s View on an Italian Family Vacation

Zane, together with his mom, dad, and sister, Abbi, had an awesome time on his Italian Family Vacation. Read on to hear all about Zane’s trip, from the kid himself…

Zane is a fun loving, 10-year-old kid who enjoys traveling, Star wars, and The Greatest Showman. He has visited England, France, Italy, and Canada and wants to visit many more places around the world. His favorite thing about visiting new places is learning the language, respecting the culture and making new friends.

And now, Zane’s view on his Gladiators, Gondola’s, & Gold Trafalgar Family Experience

This tour was amazing. One of my favorite parts was gladiator school which I did in Rome. The first thing we did was the museum we learnt about gladiators and what weapons they used. Then I got to do a training exercise. The layout of the exercise was you go under and over a rope then jump side to side across a rope then dodge the sand bags and then do a forward roll.  You have to do this exercise five times. After the exercises you fight other tourists. Before I left gladiator school I got a certificate for doing gladiator school.

Then I got on the coach and went back to the hotel.

Then we left the hotel to do more sightseeing.

After gladiator school I went to the Trevi Fountain. At the Trevi Fountain our tour director let us have forty-five minutes to wander. During that wander I got a gelato ice cream which was delicious! Italy is known for their gelato flavors. After the gelato I went to the Trevi Fountain and put my coin in the water. To put a coin in the Trevi Fountain you have to put your right hand over your left shoulder and throw the coin in the water.

Of course, after that I went to the coliseum. The coliseum was used for gladiators to fight lions and other animals like tigers, bulls, crocodiles, and so forth. The gladiators fought for their lives if they lose the challenge they die. The coliseum was also used for public executions they did them every afternoon.

The next thing I did was go to the Vatican church the church is the biggest church in the world. In the Vatican there is the Sistine Chapel. In the Sistine Chapel there was a beautiful ceiling made by Michael Angelo.

My favorite part of Florence was the Square where we wandered and had lunch. We also visited a winery that made their own olive oil and had a very nice dinner. The next day we went to see the statue of David made by Michael Angelo.

Then I went to Venice. My favorite part was the glass museum. At the museum I made a paper-mâché mask. After the museum I went on a gondola ride it was fantastic. I had a last day dinner and left the next day.
