To see the Sistine Chapel, the highlights of the Vatican Museums and St. Peter´s Basilica is an absolute must to complete your Rome experience. But the question is how does a family with kids tackle one of the largest museums in the world? Let us settle your doubts. The Vatican Museums may look daunting with 20,000 works of art on display. Any museum visit could be challenging for families with kids but there is always a way to make a museum visit geared to children. For this reason, we carefully handpick expert guides who love to tour with kids and who are great storytellers! To introduce such amazing artworks to kids you would need only the best. And we give you only the best.
The Sistine Chapel is famous for the extraordinary frescoes of Michelangelo. But there is more such as masterpieces by some of the greatest Italian artists like Botticelli and Raphael. This is a great place to spark children’s interest in art if one knows what really relates to kids. The Vatican collection highlights the most extraordinary ancient sculptures and world class paintings. We interact and actively engage even the smallest visitors. To hear what children think of artworks from two to three thousand years ago is music to one’s ears! Plus with statues of Greek and Roman gods and goddesses, every corner teeming with mythology and mythological creatures which never fail to enchant children, the Vatican tour is really a wonderful experience if done the right way. While St. Peter´s Basilica, one of the holiest shrines in the world, is a sight to behold. Our little visitors could get busy finding the Pietà, counting bees on Bernini’s maginificent Baldacchino or figuring out why St. Peter is always holding the two keys. Learn about the astonishing dome of St. Peter or the Cupola and if you have time you could go and climb it too after your tour. And of course, never leave without knowing more about the Vatican City, a country within the city of Rome, how cool is that! It would be a pity to miss such a great learning opportunity.
So get everyone ready for this three hour Vatican Museums Divine Race Hunt tour and rest assured that this will be a memorable learning and bonding experience for the whole family. We have designed scavenger hunts for 3-6 year olds and 7-12 year olds from simple animal hunt to riddles, word puzzles, missing art pieces and mind-bogglers. Though stay alert, as adults must listen well and participate too! This is a culturally rich tour inside a 9-mile long museum, that is true, but with a carefully planned itinerary, special materials and your dynamic, child friendly guide we can make this tour a fun and actively engaging experience!
Your enthusiastic and fun guide will take you on an exciting journey of learning and discovery in a way that is perfect for kids. Have a taste of culture, art and history through the eyes of your expert guide who will put 3,000 years of history in a nutshell to make you all appreciate every bit of it!
We used Europe 4 Kids Tours for four different tours including the Vatican, and the Coliseum in Rome, Pompeii and Mt. Vesuvius, and a half day highlights tour in Barcelona. All of the guides were excellent and knowledgeable. We had five children ranging from 5 to 12 years of age and every guide did a fantastic job keeping the kids engaged and learning. Of the eight tours we did, these were the best. We would definitely use Europe 4 Kids again and highly recommend them to anyone traveling Europe with children.
Wonderful Vatican tour with our 11 and 8-year-old girls. Only our 2nd day in Rome so everyone was still jet lagged but our guide was great. She was so energetic and interesting – the kids made it all 4 hours hardly a complaint. She took appropriate breaks and helped with inexpensive souvenirs. The scavenger hunts really kept the kids engaged. A must do with kids in Rome!
We visited Rome with our 9-year-old son right after Christmas 2017. It wasn’t our first time, but it was his, and Rome 4 Kids ended up being an integral part of our amazing experience. Thank you so much
