If you are wondering how the Vatican looks after the sun goes down? Well, we have a wonderful tour to experience it. This Friday night tour allows you to wander the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel while avoiding day-time large crowds and the blistering sun. The experience of visiting the Vatican at night is nothing but an inspiration for people who love art, music, and history. You are bound to enjoy the highlights of Vatican museums and the remarkable Sistine Chapel to the fullest. It is a favourite tour of all the guides because according to them it is “an exploration of fantasy”.

This semi-private small-group tour will let you admire the masterpieces of the Vatican Museums in a tranquil and calm atmosphere. Thanks to this extended tour, you will see much more than the usual, for example, Raphael Rooms, famous for their frescoes painted by Raphael and his workshop. You will also visit the Sobieski Room. You will do it all while enjoying the live orchestra which will play soothing classical music in the background, described as an amazing “concert of colours.” Not to forget, the beautifully illuminated Sistine Chapel which exudes the “natural” form of light, imitates the one that Michelangelo had when he was painting his most famous masterpieces. Right at the end of the tour, take a pleasant stroll down to St. Peter’s Square to capture the evening scenery and take some panoramic pictures of St. Peter’s Basilica.

An experience I never forget

The museum incorporates art and artifacts from ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome. Obviously, it additionally incorporates numerous treasures from Europe during the middle ages and the Renaissance. It was really one hallway after another of precious art. The visit to the museum usually ends at the Sistine Chapel. The Chapel was also beautiful and was the only place in the museum in which we were not allowed to take photographs. The Sistine Chapel is a place of devotion and they requested us to remain quiet and courteous in the Chapel. It was really astonishing to stand and look at all of the Michelangelo ceiling work in the Chapel. The exit from the museum leads out into the St. Peter's Basilica square. This tour was not included Basilica but we could stand on the square and took some amazing snap of Basilica. Undoubtedly it was the finest tour in Rome.

Dream came true

I’ve always dreamed of visiting the Vatican for my entire life and last month I got the chance. My husband gave a big surprise to me on our anniversary. He wanted to make the Friday night a special one for me on this day and visiting the Vatican definitely made it my day. My husband told me later that the company knew about our anniversary since he had a conversation with the company owner so they offered us a special discount and our charming tour guide took special care of us. Received heart melting service from this company. Definitely we would recommend this company for planning your visit to the Vatican.

Vatican City is definitely a beautiful place

I found the museum and Sistine chapel to be charming and the works of art to be pleasing. The museum was very large and a full day would not be enough to see it and really take it all in if you visit it yourself. I would recommend that you won't feel rush through the Vatican if you book a Friday night guided tour. You can easily avoid the crowd and heat of the sun. If you have the plan to visit the Vatican just do this tour without any confusion. Rome tour tickets is a great company indeed!

A grand mixture of wealth and richness

Well maintained, the grand spirit of history, art, and sculpture collection amazed me thoroughly. Very exciting to see the Swiss Guard. My partner and I took part in the night tour which took us to the museum to Sistine chapel. You'll never find a place like it anywhere else in the world. Grab it, you won't be disappointed!

A must visit to appreciate the history

The lines to the entrance are usually quite long in the day time so I wanted to book a nighttime tour. I started to search for some websites that are providing a Vatican night time tour. Finally, I had found rometourtickets which seemed legit with everything they did to assist answering questions. They are offering Friday night Vatican tour with excellent facilities. I booked this tour and instantly got confirmation through email. Their services were really outstanding. A good and professional tour operator indeed.

Rome tour would be incomplete without visiting the Vatican

Excellent bit of art and history. My three kids were so excited. They were listening to the guide’s explanations carefully. This is one of the most elegant and rich museums in the world. It is very long and has a huge collection of art and artifacts. Eventually, my kids got tired of watching. Had a great time with my family.

As beautiful as it is

This was a night tour and less crowded which helps to see the amazing collection. It was very nostalgic to visit the museum and the chapel with astounding paintings and sculptures. The Sistine Chapel was very surreal. We silently enjoyed mesmerizing works there.

So beautiful never wanted to leave

Plan to spend several hours here! We were told the plan for around 3 hours, but after seeing the artworks and artifacts it feels that we need more time to stay here. Please book a guided tour before traveling, guided tours are communicative and you won't understand the precious knowledge that they offer without the guided tour.

The Vatican at Friday night is glorious

We went on a group tour. A professional guide was assisted our group. We spent the best time inside the museum as there’s lots of rooms to see and lots of history to read about. It also allows an excellent view of the Sistine chapel. It’s really worth taking the time to visit the museum at night.
