Tour description

Are you traveling with your children and looking for a great experience for them to visit the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel without the daily crowd? Our VIP Vatican tour for kids lasts 3 hours, enters the Vatican Museums at 8am (one hour before opening to the general public) and is perfect for children and parents that want to visit the Vatican Galleries and the Sistine Chapel without the daily crowd.

With our Early Vatican for kids tour, you will enter the Vatican Museums before the opening of the doors to the general public and see the galleries with a limited number of people inside. Everybody in the family will be able to appreciate and enjoy our VIP Vatican tour for kids, as you will be accompanied by an engaging and fun child-friendly guide for just your family. Nobody wants to push their way through the crowds at the Vatican, least of all with kids in tow.

You will meet your private child-friendly guide at 7:30am, where they will use the iPad and other interactive material to explain to you the Sistine Chapel (explanation is not permitted inside the Sistine Chapel.) At 8am you will enter the Vatican Museums while the general public will enter at 9:00 am. You will follow a child-friendly itinerary through the Vatican Galleries. Your kids will love seeing Nero’s massive bathtub where the great Emperor once bathed and the colorful Gallery of Maps. Your private guide will explain all of these fascinating works through storytelling in a way your kids will relate to, sparking their enthusiasm for Italian art and history.

After the visit of the Vatican galleries with their incredible works of art you will reach the Sistine Chapel, where you will have some free time to admire Michelangelo’s great masterpiece. Your kids will have great fun spotting the little details and hidden meanings your guide explained to them before. 

We offer a 3-hour learning and fun tour where small and big tourists can learn without stress and without being in the crowdw. The Vatican Museums in high season can reach over 25.000 visitors. With our VIP 3-hour Early Morning Vatican Tour for kids you will have the chance to visit the Vatican Galleries and the Sistine Chapel with a child-friendly private guide that will show you the highlights of one of the most beautiful museums in the world before the opening to the general public.
