This tour is more than worth the price. We were the very first group into the Vatican when it opened for the night, we walked right through security with basically no waiting (again, first ones inside, no one was there but us!). The dinner was spectacular, included two pasta dishes, veal, potatoes, and a chicken dish as well as wine and sparkling water. We were completely secluded in the Vatican garden and it was absolutely gorgeous watching the sun set over the lawn and St. Peter’s Basilica. The staff was more than accomadating and even took pictures for us after dinner. Once the dinner was done we joined another tour group and walked through the entire museum and Sistine chapel. Tour guide was amazing and we all had a great time. I will definitely do this again one day if I return to Rome!! One of the highlights of my trip!

Tour Itinerary

See one of the holiest sites in Christendom on a guided walking tour of the Vatican Museums on Friday night, with less crowd and more time to enjoy your time. It includes a comprehensive visit to the Sistine Chapel and St. Peter’s Basilica. Skip-the-line access is guaranteed, saving you long waits in the lines that usually form outside one of the world’s most popular attractions.

Considered one of the most important places in the history of human civilization, start your tour at the museum to see the important collections of art that various popes have acquired throughout the centuries.

Look out for renowned sculptures and masterpieces of Renaissance art. Feel the weight of history and get a sense of the sacred as you spy paintings by Raphael, Giotto, Leonardo da Vinci, Caravaggio and Michelangelo, including his masterwork in the Sistine Chapel.

You don't know where to eat after leaving the Museums by 11pm approximately? Just upgrade the tour so that a delicious dinner at the renowned restaurant Le Carronne is conveniently added to the guided tour rate. Save up money and end your night on an Italian culinary note.
