    Stop At: Sistine Chapel, Citta del Vaticano 1, 00120 Vatican City Italy

    On this Vatican by Night Tour you will visit the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel, in the early evening after the daytime visitors have departed. Please note that entry is not allowed into St. Peter’s Basilica as it is closed in the evening.

     You will see some of the Vatican’s numerous treasures, both artistic and historical, many dating back to ancient Roman times. There is a visit to the Gallery of Maps with its 40 amazing frescoes dating from the late 1500s and Raphael’s Rooms, four chambers that house works by Raphael and his students.

     Then, one of the reasons everyone comes to Rome, a visit to the Sistine Chapel. In the tranquil atmosphere of the evening, away from the daytime crowds, you have a full 15 minutes in the chapel to gaze upon Michelangelo’s iconic ceiling fresco, The Creation of Adam, and also The Last Judgement that adorns one of the chapel’s walls. (As talking is not allowed in the chapel your guide will tell you all about the wonderful frescoes before you enter.)

    The finale of the tour is a stroll around St. Peter’s Square, lit by a myriad lights and sparkling under the night sky. In the piazza your guide will point out Bernini’s optical illusions and you will visit the exact spot where St. Peter, who later became the first Pope, was crucified. This area went on to become the foundation of the Catholic Church; a impressive place to end a wonderful evening at the Vatican.
