Visited annually by over 6 million visitors, the Vatican Museums host one of the largest art collections in the world, making it a treasure trove of history. Tackling a museum of this size with children requires careful planning. Do not be overwhelmed by the extraordinary vastness of the Vatican’s treasures, or the length of its lines. Our private Jewish Vatican family tour with skip the line entry, a planned route, and an expert kid-friendly guide at your side is an educational tour with a Jewish perspective that engages young learners and parents.

After skipping the line your own dedicated guide leads you on an emotional journey of art packed with historical information and surprising facts. Michelangelo, Julius II, and Raphael will come alive at every turn. Your guide keeps the whole family engaged in lively discussions with inquisitive questions and insights. Hear the history and stories that bring the masterpieces to life. We focus on works and rooms that tell amazing stories or have a unique history. Discover the biblical images that Michelangelo left us in the heart of the Vatican. In child-friendly language your guide explains the symbols and captivating history of the Sistine Chapel. The secret Jewish messages and the details of the making of that creation are an amazing lesson to learn.

Find out about the myths behind the Greek and Roman statues of various gods, goddesses and mythological creatures. Explore the early history of Italy in the Gallery of Maps containing a series of painted maps of the papal lands. The maps would be incredible enough on their own but the real amazing thing about the Map Room are the decorations on the vaulted ceiling depicting biblical and mythological scenes. Learn the story behind Michelangelo Sistine Chapel. More than 350 figures are portrayed on the ceiling, including families with children and angels and demons, some of them wearing the faces of Michelangelo contemporaries. Children will be amazed at what went into this creation marveling at how the Renaissance artist painted the 12,000 square feet ceiling. The size of the Sistine Chapel is based on Solomon’s Temple in Jerusalem, as described in the Old Testament. The southern wall is decorated with the Stories of Moses, the northern wall tells the story of Jesus Christ, both seen as liberators of humanity. The central part of the ceiling shows scenes from Genesis. Bordering the ceiling there are twelve figures. The seven men are Biblical prophets. The five women are pagan sibyls from ancient times, who according to the Church had predicted the coming of Jesus. Among the prophets from the Old Testament there are Isaiah, Ezekiel, Jeremiah and Daniel. Both the Prophets of Israel and the Sibyls of the pagan world have been included by Michelangelo as a sign that the Messiah was to come not just for the Jews but also for the non-Jewish people. Jewish Vatican family tour ends in St. Peter’s Square, but does not include the Basilica itself.
