Family-friendly Vatican Tour For Kids With Sistine Chapel & St Peter’s Basilica

Tour Rating 5.0

You are in Rome and would love to visit Vatican City but are not sure the children would enjoy it.  Think again!! This is a great 3-hour, fully interactive tour of the Vatican Museums, the Sistine Chapel and Saint Peter’s Basilica that will keep the whole family fully engaged.  You won’t miss anything.  The wonderful collections in the Galleries of Tapestries and Maps, Raphael’s Rooms and of course the Sistine Chapel and the very imposing Saint Peter’s Basilica.  It has been designed to be a fun, learning experience for the kids but we know the whole family will be captivated.

Reviews for Family-friendly Vatican Tour For Kids With Sistine Chapel & St Peter’s Basilica
Excellent for our tween and teen and for the parents
Maria was an excellent tour guide. She was extremely patient with all our questions about religion and history. My 12 year old daughter walked with her and asked questions the whole time. Maria was very patient. 3 hours went by so fast!
Excellent Vatican family tour
Valeria was our tour guide for the Vatican- she was really amazing! Her knowledge seemed endless and she did an incredible job engaging our 15 yo and 11 yo children. We all learned so much and I definitely feel the tour was well worth the money!
Sara was so knowledgeable...
Sara was so knowledgeable and friendly. We learned a lot, specifically my son. Got to skip long line with only family and Sara guide us around, totally worth it during huge crowds in Vatican. The direction was a bit confusing, make sure call and ask for exact meeting point if first time there. Highly recommended
Sara is great!
Sara did a wonderful job and my kids (boys aged 9 and 11) and I all loved her tour! She knew just how to keep them interested in all there is to see.
Highly recommend
Claudia was an excellent tour guide and helped us navigate the Vatican sites efficiently and away from the heat and crowds. She kept our children engaged and gave us a very pleasant tour.
