Tour description

Choose our Best of the Vatican Tour for Kids and get ready for a memorable and fun 3 hour experience with your family. Tour with a top child-friendly guide, who will make your visit interactive and engaging, and enjoy skip the line entrance to the Vatican. Visiting the Vatican with kids can feel overwhelming. The volume of things to view and learn about in the Vatican may be too much for adults, let alone for the little ones. For many a trip to the Vatican is a once in a lifetime experience and you will want to make sure that this adventure is fun for the whole family.  

Avoid boredom or breakdowns with this family-oriented tour of the Vatican. You will discover all the Vatican must-sees in just 3 hours, accompanied by a child-friendly guide, who knows how to arouse your kids’ interest in art history and make sure they learn whilst having fun. You will enter the Vatican Museums with our pre-purchased skip-the-line tickets (who wants to wait in line for hours?!) and walk through the Vatican Galleries and enter the world-renowned Sistine Chapel.

During the tour our private guide will use many visual aids, such as the iPad, to entertain your kids teaching them art and ancient mythology. During the tour you will admire the artworks in the Vatican galleries, learning lots of stuff about the Vatican city and the lives of the Popes, but also about the biggest ancient civilizations: Etruscan, Roman, Greek and even Egyptian! The statues, paintings and symbols hosted inside hide many stories and legends that were told by the old great civilizations. During the tour your guide will show your kids the sculpture group of the Laocoon, the Apollo of Belvedere and will even show you inside the Egyptian Museum: pop your head in to see real mummies, sarcophagi, canopic jars and statues! A favourite with children is also the huge bathtub of Emperor Nero, made with precious and hard to cut red porphyry, which will be the perfect chance for the guide to talk a little about Roman civilization. Also unmissable in any tour for kids in the Vatican are the galleries of the Candelabra and of the Tapestries, as well as the Gallery of the Maps, which contains detailed, frescoed maps of all Italy’s regions.

If you are lucky enough to have extra time, your friendly knowledgeable guide will also lead you to the Carriage Pavillion of Vatican Museums, where you will be able to admire even more wonders of Vatican museums. Please note that this section is subject to opening times.

By now you will have almost reached one of the attractions people come from all over the world to see: the Sistine Chapel, with its wonderful ceiling and frescoes by Michelangelo, depicting scenes from the “Last Judgment”.
