Full description
This 3-hour Vatican Tour for families is a must-do in Rome! This is a real life history lesson for the whole family, where you’ll discover ancient Rome, culture, tradition and legends, led by a professional, English-speaking guide. Sightseeing can be tiring for children, which is why skip-the-ticket-line admission tickets pay off. Walk straight in and participate in an unforgettable learning experience. Kids will be entertained by interactive learning tools, iPad games, quizzes and treasure hunts.  Starting at the Vatican Museums, you’ll be wowed by the architecture and the immense collection of masterpieces of Renaissance art. This museum is 14 km long, but don’t worry, your guide will customise your experience, making sure you see all the gems. As a family, partake in a fun treasure hunt to engage the kids in conversation about ancient Rome. Make your way through to the wonderful Sistine Chapel, where the first thing you’ll notice is the justifiably famous ceiling. Covered in frescoes, paintings and storyteling, your senses will be overloaded. Then, enjoy an exclusive entrance to St Peter’s Basilica, one of the largest Catholic churches in the world. Inside, you’ll see Michelangelo’s sculpture, Pietà, and be sure to look up and take in the impressive Dome. In the words of Michelangelo himself, "I am still learning", and you can too on this wonderful tour!
