Made up of hundreds of lavishly decorated rooms within the collection of palaces, galleries, chapels, and apartments, the Vatican Museums are home to over 4 miles of exhibitions.
In addition to Michelangelo’s famed “The Last Judgement” and the “Creation of Adam” within the Sistine Chapel, the Vatican has a notable treasure-chest of splendid masterpieces. Be it Raphael’s Renaissance paintings in the Vatican Art Gallery, Nero’s Bath or “The Porphyry Basin” in the Rotonda, Raphael Rooms with the “School of Athens,” the Gallery of Tapestries, or the many magnificent frescoes created by Botticelli, Pinturicchio, and Perugino, an unmatched collection of impressive artwork can be enjoyed throughout.
During the summer of 2016, on the evenings of June 22nd, July 4th, and July 14th, the Vatican will open their doors to a select few. With intimate, after hours tours available, guests will have the extraordinary opportunity to enjoy the Sistine Chapel, alongside the frescoed hallways, opulent rooms, and beautiful galleries that make up the Vatican Museums, after hours with only a handful of others.
The Vatican After Hour Tours is organized with no more than 12 people, these special evenings allow visitors a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to discover the fascinating history of the Vatican in the privacy of a small group. An exceptional chance to relish the majesty of the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel without the crowds!
Often overwhelmed by up to 30,000 guests per day, visiting the Vatican Museums with any of the three remaining after hours tours is a recommended treat for those visiting Rome this summer. To reserve a spot, contact Walks Inside Rome today.
