What to expect

Take part in a St. Peter’s Basilica and Dome tour, a unique experience for brave kids and adventurous families!

You'll climb to the very top of St. Peter's Church to enjoy the best views of Rome and you'll have the Eternal City literally at your feet. The climb in itself is a fun adventure as you'll squeeze through a narrow spiral stairwell (approximately 320 steps). After spotting the best landmarks of Rome from the sky, you’ll continue your tour with a fully personalized visit of St. Peter’s Church. Your guide will share kid-oriented anecdotes about the Burial of Saint Peter, Bernini’s Baldachin and Michelangelo’s Pietà, and will answer all your questions about the history of the Vatican.

Leaving the Church, gripped by all this beauty, you’ll be welcomed in Saint Peter’s Square by stunning statues of the Apostles, Saints and Martires dominating the façade of the Basilica and Bernini’s Colonnato. This tour is particularly loved by families with kids as it lets the young explorers have fun in climbing the Dome and exploring the Basilica.
