What You Can Expect
As you explore this exciting labyrinth of galleries and apartments, see Egyptian relics and Etruscan artifacts alongside incredible Renaissance art by legendary Italian painters Raphael and Michelangelo. Highlights of your tour include the Gallery of Maps, home to 40 map frescoes that date back to 1580, and Raphael's Rooms, four interconnecting chambers adorned with paintings by Raphael and his pupils.
Finally, you’ll make it to the room you’ve been waiting for – the beautiful Sistine Chapel. After your guide explains the significance of this sacred Vatican site, you'll have roughly 15 minutes to walk around inside and gaze in awe. See Michelangelo's famous ceiling fresco, The Creation of Adam, as well as The Last Judgment, a colorful fresco that dominates one of the chapel walls.
Your tour finishes outside the Sistine Chapel, and while entry isn't permitted to St Peter's Basilica in the evening, you can spend as much time as you want in beautiful St Peters Square, where you can take nighttime Vatican photos without the usual daytime crowds!
Evening Vatican tours sell out fast, and only twenty Friday nights are available between May to October.
I would highly recommend this night tour. There were a lot of people but personal attention was given to the group. The guide was knowledgeable and took the time to answer questions from individuals. I was amazed by the amount of visitors who were there on a Friday night.

The tour guide was very knowledgeable about many different aspects of the Vatican. And she never rushed us through any portion of the tour including the Sistine Chapel area.
