Let's discover in a kids-friendly tour the smallest country in the world! We will discover 3 different sides of the Vatican: as a City, as a Museum and as the core place of Christianity with St. Peter's Basilica.
Your kids will be engaged thanks to some activities / games to be done together during our tour.
Suggested for kids between 5 and 12 years old

Itinerary

Our tour will start with a general introduction to the history and the tradition of the Vatican City State. Then I'll necessarily do a selection of the best pieces of art displayed around the astonishing galleries and courtyards (Pinecone Courtyard; Octagonal Courtyard; Candelabra Gallery; Tapestries Gallery; Gallery of Maps).
READ CAREFULLY
St. Peter's Basilica and/or the Sistine Chapel are subject to last-minute closures during special celebrations/festivities. They might be not accessible for last-minute religious celebrations/security reasons, without previous notice. In case of such events, the tour guide will provide you with a valuable alternative focusing the tour inside the Vatican Museums.
>>> IMPORTANT: The DRESS CODE is strict and requires both men and women to cover their shoulders, knees, and abdomen <<<
>>> The tour is NOT available on SUNDAYS and during all religious holidays.
* Also available without transportation. Just make an inquiry for the actual cost.

A Recent Review of this tour

Flaminia was a nice lady, with a nice attitude. I honestly expected her English to be better. She does speak English but I would not say she's fluent. I asked for the abbreviated version of this tour but she never acknowledge that. We could have made things better for her and for us, but she never bother to ask how much detail did we wanted. By the time we reached the Saint Peter's Basilica my husband was overwhelmed with so much information that neither one of us remembers much of what she said.
