Your guide will meet you near Vatican City. Then, skip the ticket line at the entrance of the Vatican Museums.  If required, you can store any belongings you may have in the Vatican cloakroom before the start of the tour. Throughout your tour, your children will join in games and win prizes whilst discovering more about the Vatican’s collections. Marvel at the multitude of ancient Greek and Roman sculptures, as well as the sarcophagi of Empress Helena and Constantina, the mother and daughter of Constantine the Great.  Next, move through the Gallery of the Candelabra, Gallery of the Tapestries, Sobieski Hall, and the sumptuously decorated Raphael Rooms.  Then, enter one of Italy’s most popular attractions, the Sistine Chapel, which is still in use, primarily for the papal elections. The chapel is home to Michelangelo's 'The Last Judgment' and other frescoes depicting Biblical stories, such as the creation of Adam.  From the Sistine Chapel, continue to the most important Catholic church in the world - Saint Peter’s Basilica. This tour is the perfect way to explore all that the Vatican has to offer, as well as keep your children entertained and engaged, as they have fun and learn. Your family will love teaming up to solve quizzes, participate in treasure hunts, and much more. Your guide will personalize your tour, creating a unique experience for your family. Your tour ends in Saint Peter's Square next to the taxi rank and bus station.

What people are saying about Gallery of the Candelabra

Paola managed to get our 6 and 8 year olds on board for an almost 3 hour visit to the Vatican. We greatly appreciated his kindness, his adaptability and his skills. Another big thank you to her, we had made the Colosseum visit the day before with her and it was also very well designed for our children. We strongly recommend the visit, even if it is a bit expensive, exceptional memories for the whole family.

Veronica was great. Absolute recommendation. However, currently: no passage from the museum to the cathedral. So just a museum.

Claudia was knowledgeable, experienced and energetic! The tour was a great pace for kids (age 11 and 8) and parents too.

Art and culture were conveyed in a way that was child-friendly! This is exactly how we imagined it!

The visit was enjoyable, the children managed to be very attentive and interested at all times.
