Full description
The Vatican Museums’ collection stretches across 5 miles, and a novice can frequently miss some of the highlights by getting lost in the minor rooms. Instead, join this night tour, and allow your expert guide to illuminate to you the great wonders of this special collection.

You can see the Raphael Rooms, where Raphael’s frescoes, like his Philosophers of Athens, delight with their humanist elegance and dazzling color. Experience the extensive range of classical statuary, including treasures like the powerfully masculine and fractured masterpiece, The Belvedere Torso.

Not even the most raucous crowd could ruin the Sistine Chapel, but busy days in high season frequently diminish its impact. Instead of letting the shine of this special place dim, join this night tour and see 12,000 feet of Michelangelo’s frescoes in the serenity of the evening. Your guide will awaken hidden meanings behind these most impressive works, including The Last Judgement and The Creation of Adam.
