On our Vatican family tour, we have literally removed the barriers between children and visiting the masterpieces held within the Vatican Museums’ 9 miles of art. This fantastic visit for the whole family starts with No Wait Entry thanks to our Vatican Partnership, a 2-hour itinerary designed for families with children aged 7-12, careful explanations of some of the world’s best artwork, as well as specific activities and materials that your children are going to love.

This unforgettable family experience begins as you walk straight past the long lines at the Vatican, which means you will get in even faster than those in the standard group entrance that most tour operators bill as ‘skip the line’. Your kids will still be full of energy and burning with curiosity as you step into the museum for an outstanding visit with a passionate guide full of insight, stories and games that will keep your children engaged on an adventure that is both fun and educational at the same time.

We have carefully chosen the parts of the museum that your kids are going to like best, weaving a rich narrative that covers not only the Vatican’s timeless masterpieces, but also the history of the Papacy itself. Your young travelers will embark on a journey they will never forget as they explore with their expert guide and imagination to lead them.

See the Pope-mobile, the wonders of ancient Egypt, the Gallery of Maps and trace Michelangelo's inspiration through the Vatican's original collection that led to some of the most important figures in his Sistine Chapel ceiling and Last Judgment frescoes, perhaps the greatest artistic achievements ever.

After the tour ends inside the majesty of the Sistine Chapel, your guide will show you and your family where to gain direct skip the line access to St. Peter's Basilica, which you will be able to explore at your own pace to see more treasures, like Michelangelo's 'Pietà', inside the most important Catholic church in the world.

Thanks to this handpicked itinerary, specific activities focused on making sure your kids get the most out of their Vatican experience and special attention from your expert guide, this fun and informative tour is sure to be a hit with the whole family, and your kids will also feel that you did something special for them.
