Love art, history and cooking? A fantastic way to see the beauty and art of the Vatican and learn to make your very own Italian meal, all in a day. Our Double the Shore Excursion is designed for individuals and families visiting Rome with plenty of curiosity and a limited amount of time.

We will pick you up from Civitavecchia and whisk you away for an exciting family-friendly tour of the Vatican. With Skip the Line tickets, you will be led through the masterful treasure-chest of art within the Vatican. With an expert guide, enjoy all the Renaissance greats - Botticelli’s paintings, Raphael’s Rooms, and Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel. No visit to the Vatican would be complete without discovering the spectacular St. Peter’s Basilica with its stunning mosaics, Michelangelo’s Pieta, and Bernini’s Baldachi.

Next, we will make our way to a stunning, 17th Century Palazzo for an authentic Cooking Class. Set around the corner from Piazza Navona, you can customize your delicious Italian meal, creating either pizza or pasta, pairing it with either gelato or tiramisù.

This private full-day tour can be customized according to your artistic interests and culinary favorites. Perfect for those arriving on a shore excursion from Civitavecchia, ready to discover the Vatican as well as enjoy a fun Italian Cooking Class.
