A Vatican city by night tour is a tour not many visitors get a chance to experience as tickets are not only limited, but this tour only operates on Friday nights in summer. So, you need to get in early and book now. There are visitors who visit the Vatican by the day, but as the sky darkens, wish to experience some of its attractions in the dark. This tour will not disappoint.
With an English-speaking guide sharing with you fascinating tales, this tour covers the Vatican Museums including Raphael’s Rooms, and also a visit to the Sistine Chapel. Only open in summer, and that too only on Fridays, the Vatican Museums opens its doors at 7.00 p.m. for visitors.
Your private guide will share with you fascinating snippets about some of the most beautiful artifacts your eyes will ever lay on from both the Greek and Roman periods. The Vatican Museums is filled with many wonderful galleries and your visit will include the Gallery of Tapestries, The Gallery of Maps, The Gallery of the Candelabras, and the amazing Raphael’s Rooms – four rooms which were exquisitely made over with paintings.
To experience the Sistine Chapel at night is an experience many crave, but do not get an opportunity to explore. Minus the crowds of the day, you can enjoy the Sistine Chapel and appreciate the artwork of Michelangelo. The highlight is the Sistine Chapel ceiling and Michelangelo’s – Last Judgement. It depicts the second coming of Christ and is a visually stunning piece of artwork that speaks volumes of its creator. Other Renaissance painters such as Pinturicchio, Botticelli, Perugino (Raphael was one of his most famous pupils), and Ghirlandaio also left their mark.
