Are you looking for a fun skip the line tour that will involve the whole family? Are you tired of boring, long visits to museums and churches? Our Vatican Treasure Hunt is exactly what you are looking for! Children will be engaged from start to finish as they follow a Vatican scavenger hunt carefully designed to be both highly engaging and educational.
Our 3 hour Vatican treasure hunt is a unique opportunity for the little ones (and also the adult members of the party!) to discover everything about the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica accompanied by a child-friendly, private guide.
You will meet your guide at the entrance to the Vatican Museums, ready to start your fun and exciting Vatican scavenger hunt. You will of course enter the Vatican Museums with skip the line tickets. There are no lines with our Vatican kids tours! In just 3 hours, our enthusiastic private guide will accompany your family through the different Galleries in the Vatican and on to the world-famous Sistine Chapel, finally reaching St. Peter’s Basilica.
Along the way, your children will draw and color pictures, solve clues and puzzles and discover details of the numerous masterpieces that adorn the different galleries, dating from Ancient Egypt (you will see real mummies!) up to the Roman Age (Nero’s huge bathtub can be found in the Vatican Museums!) and on and on… Your kids will be encouraged to really look at the paintings and sculptures in order to discover fascinating little details. With our Vatican treasure hunt, the adults are also bound to find hidden intricacies in the masterpieces that others would have missed.
The Vatican Scavenger Hunt will involve small prizes for the younger members of your family! It will be fantastic for them to keep their small activity book as a memory of their journey to the Vatican and of all they discovered! When you get back home they can share all the fun facts and history they’ve learned during their Vatican Treasure Hunt with their friends!
Choose to add early entrance to the Vatican Museums before they open to the general public to enjoy your Vatican Treasure Hunt when the Vatican is less crowded.

Remember to follow the dresscode for the Vatican: you must be able to cover your shoulder and knees.
PLEASE NOTE: in case St Peter's Basilica is closed for religious functions, you will spend longer time in the Vatican galleries with your guide. The Basilica is a Church and as such the Vatican can decide to use it for religious functions without notice.
Please note that in certain periods of summer time, or when the Vatican Museums reopen its doors after bank holidays, the museums might be busier than usual.
Please note that, for disabled visitors with certified invalidity of more than 74%, the Vatican Museums offers free entry that is extended to a companion for visitors who are not self-sufficient. To benefit from this, make sure you mention it at the time of booking so that our staff may handle your request.
