What to expect

The Friday Evening Vatican Tour is an inspirational tour for people who love art, music and history. You will see the highlights of the museums and the remarkable Sistine Chapel in its entirety. It is your guide's absolute favorite, so let him take you on what is called “journey of fantasy.”

Enjoy a small group tour and admire the masterpieces of the Vatican Museums in a quiet and relaxing atmosphere. This tour is an extended one, so you will see much more than the usual, for example the Raphael Rooms (“stanze di Raffaello”), famous for its frescoes painted by Raphael and his workshop, and the Sobieski Room. You will listen to your tour guide’s explanation of the Sistine Chapel, while enjoying a live orchestra playing soothing classical music in the background described as an amazing “concert of colors.”

The last part of the tour is the beautifully illuminated Sistine Chapel. This “natural” form of light imitates the one that Michelangelo had when he was painting his most famous masterpieces, such as Adam’s Creation and the Last Judgment. After exiting the chapel, the tour will end just outside the Vatican. It is recommended you go for a pleasant stroll down to St. Peter’s Square in order to capture the evening scenery and take some panoramic pictures of St. Peter’s Basilica and see the Vatican residences lit up at night
