Tour description

Every summer the Vatican opens its doors on Friday nights to allow visitors to enjoy the beautiful halls of the museum in a new light. This is a perfect opportunity to enjoy the Vatican Museums' magnificent collection with a special evening ambience and is also a great way to give yourself a break from the heat during the day!

Our expertly guided tour includes the highlights of the Vatican Museums, the mezmerising Raphael Rooms, and a visit to the Sistine Chapel, which is enhanced by the evening atmosphere and the glow of the torches in the garden.

We do not visit Saint Peter’s Basilica, as it is closed to the public during the evenings, so we will dedicate our time to exploring the treasures of the world-famous museums.

This tour is great for those who arrive Friday afternoon and want to get into the spirit of their Roman adventure.

We recommend starting this tour to at 7:30 or 8:00 PM.   

Please note that shoulders and knees need to be covered during the tour. No vests or shorts and skirts above the knees will be allowed inside the Vatican Museums.
