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.

Recommended tour

The Vatican was extremely quiet in the morning and very less crowded. Evan showed us more than usual as we didn't have to fight the crowds! It's a must-do tour while travelling to Rome.

Highly knowledgeable guide

It was great to have someone so passionate about history. Rebecca was highly knowledgeable on the most significant parts of the Vatican. The tour was an informative one I’ve had in a few years.

What an awesome experience

It was our last day in Rome and next morning our flight was booked for Florence. I called this company and asked for the best way to explore the Vatican. Since it’s already around 4 pm so they suggested going for the night tour. We heard them and it was the right decision. Incredible visit with our stunning guide, so proficient with an affection for history, dealing with the tour so well for us. We got a large portion of the features of the Vatican museum and the Sistine Chapel. Remarkable tour. Don’t miss visiting the Vatican at night for a totally new experience.

Incredible memories with better half

Me and my better half made some incredible memories in this guided tour. What a stunning guide who portrayed the entire story with such a large amount of enthusiasm and elegance. Thanks a ton for making our outing great and vital. Of all the things we had in Rome, this Friday night Vatican was the best and recommended to anyone visiting Rome.

Superb and mind-blowing

I really don’t know where to begin to share the experience. We had visited the Vatican more than once but in the daylight. One of my friends recommended visiting the Vatican at night and book the tour with Rome tour tickets since his experience was good with this company. We had an amazing time in the Vatican. We saw much more than the usual time. Superb and mind-blowing Friday night experience. I had no idea the Vatican looks so different at night and it was such a unique experience for us. I didn’t forget to thank my friend for the recommendation.

Absolutely recommended

It was a semi-private guided tour and on Friday night the crowds are much less. We enjoyed thoroughly the amazing art and history of the Vatican museums and the Sistine Chapel. Our group was small and I think a night tour is the ideal way to explore the glory of the Vatican in a less-crowded environment. You'll surely enjoy this tour.

This tour surpassed our desires

We had excellent night views on the Vatican and a concise history of the site. This was a broad tour, covering far more than we expected and surpassing desires.
