Know More about this tourEach summer, when daytime temperatures can reach unbearable levels, the Vatican Museums opens its doors once a week on Fridays after official opening hours. Take advantage of this unique opportunity to experience the Museums in the comfortably cooler evening and join this small-group, headset-free tour of 10 people or less which also includes a luxurious aperitivo buffet inside the Museums & even a classical music concert (select Fridays).
Access is limited to pre-booked guests only, and using our pre-reserved entrance we'll gain access to the Vatican Museums well after official opening hours, when twilight casts a golden glow over the Museums which have been especially lit for this occasion. Once inside, your charismatic English-speaking guide will adjust your itinerary perfectly to include all of the highlights, making it to the Pinecone courtyard just in time to catch the luxurious aperitivo buffet (free drink of your choice included!) and the classic music concert which only goes on select Fridays.
Experience the Sistine Chapel in the less-crowded evening and discover the Upper Galleries of the Vatican Museums including the Gallery of the Tapestries and Candelabra, the Hall of the Maps, the Octagonal Court, and Raphael’s Rooms. You won't miss a single important stop.
Our small groups of 10 people or less are specially authorized to go headset-free inside the museums. No staticky, uncomfortable plastic earphones to get in the way of genuine, face-to-face interaction with your expert Guide - making for the best experience possible.
Your Vatican Night tour ends the main entrance of the Vatican Museums.
