St Peters & Castel Sant Angelo Kids Tour Description

Rome, Italy

This great family tour for all ages starts with us avoiding the long lines to enter the amazing St. Peter’s Basilica where your tour guide will talk you through the wonder of the architecture and the many masterpieces by famous figures like Michelangelo and Bernini that await you inside.

All kids love the opportunity to climb the fun winding stairs all the way to the very top of the dome structure (no building in Rome is actually allowed to be taller than St Peter’s) and soak in the unparalleled 360-degree views of not only St. Peter’s Square, but all of Rome in her splendor.

Throughout the tour of St. Peter’s Basilica, your knowledgeable guide will draw your eye and perk up your curiosity with information that goes beyond the ordinary with fun facts and secret history.

From here we will whisk you away on foot towards the ancient, ominous Castel Sant’ Angelo! You’ll learn the fascinating history from its creation at the orders of Emperor Hadrian where it first served as a mausoleum, then a fortress and castle with an infamous prison and torture chamber! 

You will soon understand why the author Dan Brown cited this place as a meeting point for the Illuminati in his book Angels and Demons, and why it was featured so prominently in the video game Assassin’s Creed 2.

We highly recommend the Tours by Luxe experience! During our week in Rome in July, Amy and her fabulous assistants Irenes P and V put together two wonderful tours for us. Our first was a tour of the Vatican Museum accompanied by our guide Jessica, the second to the Colosseum, Palatine Hill and Forum with Letizia. Both guides were knowledgeable, entertaining and fun. We all got a lot out of the tours - it’s so much better than wandering around by yourselves. Discovering secret messages in famous art works or having centuries old graffiti pointed out is just thrilling. It’s also fabulous bypassing the queues and having air-conditioned transfers to and from the sites. We highly recommend the Tours by Luxe experience.
