TURN YOUR VATICAN DAY INTO A FUN-FILLED TREASURE HUNT! - SEE ALL THE BIG SITES WHILE KEEPING THOSE KIDS ENGAGED AND HAPPY.
Planning that perfect family trip to Rome is a balancing act...
While marvelous historic sites like the Vatican are enough to amuse, inform, and entertain any adult… everyone knows how trying the average trip to the museum is for a little one’s attention span.
That’s where this trip shines!
But now, you can get a full-blown Vatican tour that gives you access to all the sites you’ve been hoping to see and experience …. With a special strategy for keeping those kids “in the game” with you all day.
Yep… this unusually fun-filled tour takes the boredom out of the equation, and makes the Vatican come to life for the young ones by giving them a unique reason to stay engaged while you savor thousands of years of art and culture:
A TREASURE HUNT!!!
That’s right... while you’re busy touring masterpieces like the Sistine Chapel, The Papal Carriages, St. Peter’s Basilica, and almost everything else the adults need to see…
Your kids will be hunting and exploring those works of art just as deeply, searching for their next clue. (and getting a major education in the meantime)
They’ll look for the mistakes in the Sistine Chapel ceiling … they’ll hear your guide talk about what it was like to be the Pope in ancient times … and they’ll be quizzed about kid-friendly facts and tidbits that this tour group has masterfully assembled with one thing in mind:
KEEPING YOUR KIDS INTERESTED AND ENGAGED!
Book this tour to get a comprehensive Vatican Experience that will make any adult feel like they’ve seen the sites … AND to get those kids’ minds working too.
History can be fun, exciting, and invigorating … even for the young ones.
… All you need to do is throw in the right challenge.
Enjoy your treasure hunt, you’ll be talking about it all night! 😉

English speaking Vatican Insider Guide
With this tour you are guaranteed specially reserved VIP entrance slots so that you avoid the 1-3 hour wait. This is also why it’s important to be at least 15 minutes early to meet your group.

Now it's on to the Museums! During the tour you are encouraged to ask questions about all things Vatican along the way.
Before you reach the Sistine Chapel, Your guide will give you the inside scoop, about Michelangelo, some of the special characteristics about these paintings and what to look for while you are in there, because you are not allowed to talk inside of the Sistine Chapel, shhhhhh.
Once you have taken that beauty in, Your guide will take you through a secret door near by that leaves you out in front of St Peters. Here you will also skip the line to enter a truly living museum.
This tour does not cover the basilica...
Here is where the tour ends but you can continue on exploring St. Peters on your own. You have the option to purchase tickets (at an added cost on site of 2 Euros per person) to climb the dome or go underground to see the Vatican crypts.
Be prepared to be walking/standing for the length of the tour. You definitely want to wear your most comfortable shoes. The Vatican Museums are vast with some steps and stairways.
If you are concerned about the intensity, contact us for more information, or choose the private option where you can go at your own pace.
Students that book Vatican tours for a student price MUST bring their student ID. It is required at the start of the tour.
Leave the sharp objects behind… The Vatican Museum require all knives, scissors and/or metal tools of various types to be stored in the cloakroom.
You are allowed to enter the Vatican Museums with a bag no larger than 15.7 inches x 13.7 inches x 6 inches (40cm x 35cm x 15cm). Larger bags must be checked in. You must also check backpacks, tripods and other oversized items. Please do not bring large bags on your tours. Spending time at the coat check will disrupt the tour for the rest of the group. If you check bags, you will also have to return to the coat check after your tour, which finishes at St. Peter’s Basilica (a 15-minute walk from the museum entrance).
