It’s Easter, and you know what that means: eggs, bunnies, chocolates and, most important of all, family. With the kids on school leave and time on your side to relax and be reminded of just how special spending vacation time together is, what better time to plan your next holiday, one the whole family will enjoy.
At Trafalgar, our family trips are redefining the idea of a multi-generational holiday, ensuring there are no bored children asking “can we go play now?” and no parents needing to find babysitters while they go out for their evening meal. We’ve created a series of multi-generational packages that cater to every member of the family so everyone can live their travel dreams. We pack each itinerary full of family-friendly activities, leisure time and hand-selected hotels so that adventure, culture and comfort go hand-in-hand. With included and optional experiences that fit everyone’s vacation-style, no one will feel left out. Best of all, with everything taken care of, everyone can do what they came to do away from the pressures and stress of everyday life – enjoy precious time together and make memories for everyone.

You’ll visit a gladiator school that was created for the young and young-at-heart, where your family will learn about Roman history before gearing up to practice some moves inside the arena.
