WHAT TO EXPECT

Welcome to an inspiring journey packed with surprising tales and facts where chapters of history come to life! Immerse yourself in centuries of world-famous art on a 3-hour private guided tour of the Vatican from a Jewish perspective. In addition to the undivided attention of your family guide, you are also treated to a 100% personalized itinerary that speaks to your unique interests and questions.

Your meaningful journey begins skipping the long Vatican entrance lines. You will see the most celebrated of all the Vatican’s treasures—Michelangelo Sistine Chapel—but your guide will also take you to admire other carefully selected works at a pace that will keep the kids engaged. Along the way, you will access rooms filled with priceless paintings and classical sculptures, each with its own captivating stories to tell.

Regarded as Michelangelo’s masterpiece, the Sistine Chapel is the breathtaking attraction of the Museums, which holds extraordinary significance both for religious and for art-loving parents who want to share their passions with their kids. With the help of your guide, you will learn the history and side-stories behind the symbols and allusions the artist left us in the heart of the Vatican. 

Brilliantly decorated with striking frescoes and a cast of colorful biblical characters, the Sistine Chapel depicts scenes from Genesis. Michelangelo tells the story of The Creation of the Heavens and Earth; the story of Adam and Eve and the story of Noah and the Great Flood. Undoubtedly, the hidden messages, the history and the frescoes of this renowned chapel will be an amazing lesson to learn!

Once you have had your fill of the Sistine Chapel, you will enter straight into St. Peter’s Basilica to enjoy Michelangelo’s Pieta and Bernini’s baldachin among other treasures. At the end of our Jewish Vatican family tour, you will have gained a comprehensive insight into one of Rome’ most beloved attractions.
