The Vatican Museums & Sistine Chapel at Night Tour Details

You will be guided through the intriguing history of the museums as you peek around gilded corners and down ornate corridors that house everything from ancient sculptures and monuments to Renaissance masterpieces, you’ll be sure to stumble on something that makes your jaw-drop.

As this tour takes place in the evening you can benefit from less crowding, enabling you to get an up-close and personal look at the awe-inspiring artwork including:

  • Lacoon (ancient sculpture)
  • Apollo Belvedere (ancient sculpture & one of the first in the collection)
  • Canova’s Perseus
  • Ancient bronze statue of Hercules
  • Gallery of the Tapestries
  • Gallery of the Maps

The Sistine Chapel at Night

Perhaps the highlight of the tour is the chance to luxuriate in the splendor of the Sistine Chapel without the rush of tourists surrounding you, and of course without the anxious security guards trying to move you on.

Your private guide will use this opportunity to pick out and discuss some of the finer details in the iconic frescoes and ceiling paintings overhead. The time afforded to appreciate the subtle nuances on such a large scale masterpiece makes the evening tour worth it all by itself.
