Ann was brilliant to book with. She was extremely efficient and provided expert guidance and advice when booking. As a family we thought both tours were terrific. We loved the mask making workshop and the trip to Murano to visit a glass factory.
Elisabetta was brilliant with children. She came down to their level and involved them all the way. I loved the fact she started off showing them a map of Venice and gave them lots of fun quiz questions throughout. It made them active learners without them knowing it. She was fun, polite and a pleasure to have spent the afternoon with. I would thoroughly recommend her.
Samuele tour was good too. Both were very special. The girls had lots of fun and learnt lots. His expert knowledge in finding the right places to do these activities which would suit children was evident and very appreciated. Again, I would recommend him.
I found the tours on the Internet when looking specifically for tours with children in mind. We are already thinking of using you when we visit Tuscany next year!
The only thing I perhaps would have liked would have been a plan of what the tour guides were going to do so we could plan our other days a little better and not repeat anything. Luckily we had not really visited Murano yet but if we had, we would have then repeated the experience.
Apologies for the late feedback. We certainly look forward to using you again.
Please express our thanks to Ann, Elisabetta and Samuele for their parts in our experience. It has been a pleasure dealing with you. Thank you for all your advice and time.

The Museums hold one of the largest and richest art collections in the world. Ranging from classical statues to contemporary works the endless masterpieces are awe inspiring.

With this in mind, we have designed a Jewish Vatican tour focusing on the most interesting bits with the insights of our passionate, brilliant and inspired guides. Hear the storied history behind the treasures you see with a special focus on the Jewish symbols and allusions depicted in the Sistine Chapel. As you travel back in time, your guide familiar with the collection will share a mix of historical information and surprising details with you.
The Vatican’ Sistine Chapel, the site of papal ceremonies used by the Cardinals for their election of a new Pope, is also a masterpiece of history of art. Furthermore, the Sistine Chapel itself matches the proportions of King Solomon’s Temple as described in the Old Testament.

Our Jewish Vatican tour will immerse you in the breathtaking art and history of Michelangelo Sistine Chapel.
