The Early Entrance Vatican Tour for Kids is a great option for those families with young children that love to start touring around early in the morning, avoiding the great noon Roman heat, or that just would like to see the Vatican free from long queues and a suffocating crowd. The tour starts at 8:00am, before the general opening to the public of the Vatican doors, which means you’ll have much more space for you than the average visitor, while visiting the Galleries, the Sistine Chapel and the Cabinet of the Masks.
By choosing this tour you’re not just taking a decision for you, but for your whole family, and here’s why: getting in earlier you would skip the entrance queue, which could take up to two or three hour to go through at its peak – roughly the length of the tour itself; you would be provided of a licensed, professional, child-friendly guide, who will be exhaustive in its explanations about Rome’s history, about the Vatican and Popes history and absolutely knowledgeable of Roman mythology for all the family members; last but not least, having the galleries, the Sistine Chapel almost entirely for yourselves as you visit it, explore it and will be able to get as freely close as one can is a chance one should not be missing, ever!
Discover one of the hidden gems of the Vatican: the Cabinet of the Masks. This is an exclusive area of the galleries, whose name comes from the beautiful Roman mosaics depicting masks that adorn its floor.
The itinerary you will be following was designed specifically for families, and, among all the aforementioned attractions, you’ll get to be closer than ever to masterpieces such as the Laocoon, Nero’s enormous bathtub, that your kids will undoubtedly fall in love with! And sure that’s not all, folks! You may allow yourselves to have your minds blown away by Michelangelo’s world-famous Sistine Chapel (and you will realize it was worth it by that time, as you’ll see how scarily huge the queue will already have gotten, and you shall not worry about a thing, as you’ll skip it).
A Vatican city tour you will neither forget nor regret!
