Enigmas, secret stories, ancient documents, Christian and Pagan symbols: the Vatican is full of them! You will follow a trail through mystery and knowledge, sacred and profane, reality and legends that will make your experience memorable.

The Vatican is the smallest country in the world but contains a very rich collection of art and historic treasures. It would take so long to see them all! We made a selection for you and, on this hunt, you will learn and play with the most interesting and famous artworks. 

Your steps will cross the Gallery of Geographic Maps to find places and historic events in Italy; the Rooms of Animals, that locals call the “zoo of marble”, and the Gallery of Sculptures to identify statesman, philosophers and gods of Ancient times.

You will explore the Rooms of Raphael to decipher the codes of one of the greatest painter ever, the Sistine Chapel to discover Michelangelo and Botticelli hidden portraits and messages, and the Basilica of Saint Peter to learn about the church art and history.

Play againts your mates, colleagues or family members. At the end you will realize that you have learned so much after such a fun and informative challenge!

Between the games, a local tour guide will explain to you the history and the interesting features of the sites you visit.

Cristiana and Roberta were excellent tour guides for our Roman holiday. As a business owner, taking off time is difficult.

After scraping and saving for a year, we decided to take our kids to Rome for some fun in the sun. We visited the Vatican on day one of our vacation, to see the art collection and visit the holy city.

My 8-year-old son wanted to be a gladiator; we had a chance to visit the gladiator school. We toured the coliseum and my daughter loved it. Lunch was great, and then we toured the outskirts for a day.

Touring Rome at night was a great experience; the city glowed like a diamond. The music, the food and the laughter was a refreshing experience. The food was great, loved the Italian Sodas and Ice cream.

We explored the city for 5 days and nights, not all night long. We had a great time; the travel was easy and affordable. I would not change the experience for anything in the world. After five days, I felt refreshed and ready to go back to work.

I hope that you will take the chance to go out and experience Rome for yourself, I am glad that I did.
