Full description
Avoid the daytime crowds and explore the Vatican Museum's stunning art collection and the Sistine Chapel on an after-hours evening tour. This tour, which takes place only on Friday's during the summer, allows you to access the Vatican's immense collection of art throughout exclusive evening access. The work of history's most celebrated artists, Leornardo da Vinci, Raphael, Caravaggio and Michelangelo, decorate the museum walls, which stretch over 7 kilometers and fill 2,000 rooms. With so many important things to see, the Vatican Museum can be an overwhelming place to visit alone. You can simply allow your licensed guide to navigate you through the 2nd-largest museum in the world on a 2-hour guided tour that concludes in Michelangelo's masterpiece, the Sistine Chapel. The evening atmosphere is very tranquil and intimate in contrast to the daytime crowds, leaving you with a unique experience that most visitors to Rome never knew existed.

Our guide took us through every room of the sistene chapel and explained the history. It was only 4 of us so we had individual attention.

There was a bit of a mixup and confusion in meeting time and place by the tour company. It was worked out and tours started 30 minutes later than expected. The guide was very knowledgeable and Interesting but the tour seemed too rushed for me.
