For a limited time only, you can tour the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel at night! Experience the very best of these two holy attractions when the crowds are light and the atmosphere is more peaceful.

All tours include fast-pass access inside, so no waiting in lines! Tours are kept small to provide guests with a more intimate experience, which enables them to better appreciate the iconic art and architecture. The small setting will also allow plenty of time for your guide to answer any questions you may have.

Listen as an experienced and knowledgeable guide narrates your 2 to 2.5-hour journey through the Vatican at night. All guests are given a private head-set, so you’ll be able to hear everything your tour guide is saying while enjoying the 360 degree views of your surroundings.   

On your visit to the Sistine Chapel you’ll see the finest ancient sculptures and Renaissance art in the world. Marvel at Michelangelo’s two famous masterpieces, his iconic painting of scenes from the old testament that graces the ceiling, and The Last Judgement, displayed behind the altar.

The Vatican and Sistine Chapel are considered holy places, men and women are both expected to cover their knees and shoulders at all times. If you are wearing an outfit that shows your knees or shoulders you are expected to wear a shawl – or purchase one at the museum for a small fee. This rule also applies to children. 

Witness the impressive features of these holy establishments after dusk and away from the crowds. By booking a private night tour of the Vatican you’ll be able to see the very best of this sacred institution, and you’ll be enriched with history and stories every step of the way!

  1. Patricia – United States

    An absolute must! Alfredo's tour was amazing – he was incredibly knowledgeable and personable. His English was phenomenal and his accent was also undetectable so he was very easy to understand and to talk to. It still took a little bit of time to get through security and get ourselves organized but overall we saved SO much time by skipping the line and going at night (a lot less people there than during day). Alfredo also did a really great job making sure that everyone could see the works of art and hear him, and was able to explain the history of each piece and tell us what we should be looking at in each work
