Exclusive Friday Night tour in the Vatican Museums

5 / 5 total 100 reviews
Duration: 4 hours
Product code: 3381
Overview

Vatican City may be the smallest country on Earth, but with nine miles of invaluable artwork kept in more than 2,000 rooms visiting it can be overwhelming, especially during the day. If in Rome for a long resting weekend, or even after a busy day at work topping your hard-working week, just indulge in a tour of one of the most important museums in the world led by a professional guide on Friday nights.

You will then be led into the Vatican Museums, one of the most important places in the history of human civilization. Get to know the important collections of art the various popes have acquired throughout the centuries. Look out for renowned sculptures and masterpieces of Renaissance art. Feel the weight of history and get a sense of the sacred as you spy paintings by Raphael, Giotto, Leonardo da Vinci, Caravaggio and Michelangelo, including his masterwork: the Sistine Chapel.

Thanks to our special agreement as Tour Operator Partners of the Vatican Museums you will skip all lines, saving long waits that usually form outside this popular attraction.

I'm so glad we took the Friday night tour! It was definitely less crowded than during the day and the lighting and quiet was mellow and much cooler than during the day.

We would highly recommend this tour! The Sistine Chapel is BEAUTIFUL! The Vatican is usually a pretty busy venue, but it was slightly less busy at night and the temperature had dropped some, too - which was nice. We would do this tour again!

Great tour. If you have limited time in Rome, this is the way to extend your travelling schedule. Fewer crowds in the evening and great opportunity to take night photos afterwards.

We had been to the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel during normal hours, but a friend told us that we must see it at night and this tour gave us that opportunity. Our guide was an art historian and restorer who provided insights and understanding to what we were seeing. Guides are not allowed to accompany tours into the Chapel so we were on our own at that point but our guide had prepared us well for our experience. Being able to observe and take in this incredible masterpiece in a small group setting, for as long as we wanted to stay, was an unforgettable experience!

Amazing! Our guide provided a fun, engaging and educational experience. She was knowledgeable, passionate about the art, the history and provided insights that you certainly not expect to learn from simply wandering through or listening to an audio guided tour. The radio with earpieces made it so easy to hear what she was saying. The evening tour was magical with incredible natural light surrounding St. Peter's. I would highly recommend this tour.

Bijzonder goed idee om vrijdag avond het Vaticaan te bezoeken. Minder heet dan overdag en niet in de rij voor kaartjes hoeven staan. Zondag was de rij voor kaartjes op de St.Pieters Plein honderden meters lang in de brandende zon. De gids was zeer deskundig en wist overal op een leuke manier van te vertellen in prima engels. Helemaal top.

A wonderful experience with a very personable, helpful and knowledgeable guide. This was our second tour of the Vatican and Sistine Chapel on this trip. The Vatican is beautiful at night and the Sistine Chapel is wonderful without the crowds.
