Because we are different & we care – about you and your children!
– Rome4Kids Founder Katja with her daughter –
My name is Katja Hansel,
Travel is my biggest passion, though, as a single mom it has always been an incredible challenge as no guides could ever be found who would create enriching cultural experiences but my very smart and curious little girl would switch off after a few minutes being bored! I could never find any guides who would be sensitive enough to the needs, interest and energy of my little girl. No one would make history comprehensive, inspiring & fun! So I had to step in and make it all come alive in simple words – that’s how this company was born! Out of the love for my own daughter and an understanding of how frustrating city travels with children can be.

Danish of origin, Marlene has been living on the shores of the mystic lake of Nemi for more than 20 years.
She developed a great passion for Rome and Roman's way of living, still mantaining her scandinavian cultural background: a Tour with Marlene is for sure an experience for life! A wide span of knowledge of archeology, history, art and social italian life is told with a smile and Danish/Italian Charm.
The wings, though shorter, are here.. Still ready for any opportunity to breathe energy, create atmosphere to listners and visitors, use the imagination of the past and the present to transmit the love for Italy and still learning to ``fly``....
An enormous interest in comunicating the history of Rome, ancient history, here and now, transmitting my love for art, culture, topographic, geography....
‘Taking children around Rome's glorious sights means seeing it all again, fresh and new. The children are seeing it for the first time and their vision brings us to see it like they do.’
Carol has a degree in Art history, has grown up in the USA and has been teaching history and art and religion as a licensed guide for over 20 years.
``Being a mother and a teacher myself has given me an incredible understanding of how to interact and approach children of all ages and being an authentic ‘Roman’ has helped greatly to stimulate my desire to share my knowledge and love for my city! Being a guide for R4K has given me the opportunity to unite all those passions…``
Ciao, I'm Antonella and working with Katja's families has allowed me to completely crown a life long dream, let me tell you why. I am Italian born but grew up in the US. When I was 16, my first time to Italy signed my future. We toured Rome with a guide who later became my teacher & mentor. I fell in love with Rome and with this profession! I never lost the intention to become a guide, when I graduated from College, packed up and my lifelong adventure began. I looked up this fantastic guide who had unveiled the art and history of this city in such a fascinating way, I proudly fullfilled my goal, I became a fullfledged licensed guide of Rome. Today after many years, I find myself starting each day with the same enthusiasm and awe as the first day. I look around me and the first thing I think is my God I'm living in an open air museum! I now have a new goal to reach. I would truly love to be that very special guide who will make a difference for your children, that very special guide that will make their Roman Adventure an unforgettable learning experience!
I am Vivian, Argentinian by birth and I have been in love with Eternal Rome for many years! I studied in Law in Argentina but instead of practising my profession I decided to teach Roman Law and Civilization which brought me to Rome quite often. I started participating in excavations and fell more in more in love with history and when I started becoming a licensed guide I noted my passion to work with children and adolescents as they are so enthusiastic, open and able to absorb so much! Augustus, Hadrian, Michelangelo, Raphael and Bernini are almost like your kids ``closest friends`` after our visits! I am very proud and happy to be part of Katja's team and I cannot wait to take you and your family to visit Rome!
