The special proposal of exclusive entry at 6 a.m. to perform with the “clavigero” or key keeper of the Museums the solemn rite of opening the doors, arriving in the Sistine Chapel while the Museums are still closed.

"Out of hours" guided tour of the Necropolis of the Via Triumphalis and the Pavilion of the Carriages – Groups

An opportunity to discover, in an "out of hours" tour while the Museums are closed, two of the sectors least familiar to the public at large: the Necropolis of the Via Triumphalis and the Pavilion of the Carriages.

The tour is conducted by an educational guide authorised by Vatican City State.

“Out of hours” guided tour – Private

Behind closed doors, after the usual opening hours, the Vatican Museums live a second life, revealing their unique qualities to those who choose a tour experience far from the daytime rhythms and crowds.
The absence of the public and the evocative evening atmosphere make this exclusive tour through 2000 years of history of the Church and Art a truly special experience.
It is compulsory to enter with a guide; the Vatican Museums can provide, upon request, a guide service with specialised staff authorised by Vatican City State.
