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.
Upon request, the unique visitor experience can be enriched and sealed with a moment of conviviality and sampling: choose between a tempting aperitivo or a delicious apericena, a buffet lasting for up to an hour.
Itinerary of Private “out of hours” guided tour: Gallery of the Candelabra, Gallery of the Tapestries, Gallery of the Geographical Maps and the Raphael’s Rooms, Sistine Chapel, Gallery of the Vatican Apostolic Library.
