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.

The artifacts and history housed in the Museum

Booked this tour after reading reviews on the Rome tour tickets website and believe me I was not disappointed. I did a guided tour. I'm not Catholic but was fascinated as much as anywhere else I've visited. The artists, architecture, and history here are nothing short of unimaginable. If you have any kind of interest in history, artworks, or religion you cannot manage to miss touring this wondrous place. If there was an option to spend the whole day here then I could easily stay here all day. Amazing tour :-)

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.

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.

Stunning works of art

This was an awesome Friday night tour with so much to see. It was a wonder to see gold ceilings, paintings, sculptures, intricate carvings. The Italian artists and sculptors were absolutely talented. I don't think any of present-day artists can replicate or create half as good as they created. Recommend a night tour to make the best of the sights, minus the crowds, and scorching sun. Just book this tour with this company and you'll be taken good care of.

The most beautiful art known in the world

We had an incredible time exploring. We did a night tour found on the Rome tour tickets website. Such an excellent trip with a knowledgeable guide in which all the highlights of the museum were noted. The Vatican museum map room was superb and our group was got blessed in the Sistine Chapel by a Vatican priest. Our guide explained the significance of a lot of paintings in the chapel very well. It was a knowledge-gathering tour indeed!

Extremely beautiful and interesting to see

We had a magnificent visit to encounter the Vatican at night. Friday night visit permitted us to meander the Vatican museum and Sistine Chapel while maintaining a distance from day-time huge crowds and the festering sun. The experience of visiting the Vatican around evening time was a great highlight on our Rome trip. You’ll absolutely love it so go for it!!

So much glory gathered in one place

This place became more mystical and marvelous at night. The place is packed with so much history, sculpture and art, that its a must-visit. The tour guide during our visit highlighted the hidden gems and narrated the stories that are quite interesting to hear. I think we had to stay more time to absorb all it has to offer!!!

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!

Marvelous combination of art to witness

We had once a chance to view the museum in a special Friday night tour. It was a mysterious encounter for sure. The museum was vast and it felt like a day isn't enough to see it's all masterwork. But our tour was about 2 hours but nevermind our guide helped us to explain everything within this time. The guided tour gave us an express entry in the Vatican. We were seeing our guide and trying to keep step with her and saw everything.
