What to expect

The Pope’s museums open their doors after dusk, allowing visitors to enjoy an evocative and unusual nocturnal experience in the Vatican. Past the crowds with a skip-the-line admission ticket and enjoy a comprehensive tour of the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel.

With the museum housing more than 1000 rooms and encapsulating an astonishing 4,000 years of history, visitors without a guide can find themselves in a maze! Let your guide amaze you with the stories and Vatican secrets behind the fascinating art and architecture while you explore the Gallery of Candelabra, Gallery of Tapestries, Gallery of Maps and many more!

Once the museum has been fully covered, you will move to the room you’ve all been waiting for: The Sistine Chapel. Your guide will take some time to provide an in-depth explanation of Michelangelo’s masterpiece before you enter and can appreciate it for yourself. Finally, you will enjoy a privileged skip-the-line entrance to St. Peter’s Basilica. The tour will finish here after your guide has recounted the incredible history of this most renowned work of Renaissance architecture and home of the Catholic church.
