Meet your guide near the entrance of the Vatican Museums and get escorted past the long lines of people waiting to buy tickets for the Vatican's special evening admission. Get into the museum before the crowds and head straight for the beautiful Pinecone Courtyard, where you'll enjoy a delicious buffet dinner with wine.
After your meal, join your guide and the rest of your group for a tour of the Vatican Museums. Learn about the courtyard where you've just had dinner. Walk through the Gallery of Maps and the Gallery of Tapestries. Admire the exquisite frescoes in the Raphael Rooms, including the famous 'The School of Athens' piece.
The final stop on the tour is the Sistine Chapel, with its enormous frescoes by Michelangelo. Your guide will tell you about the frescoes and the chapel itself before you enter, so when you go inside you can be respectfully quiet and soak in all the artistic and historic splendor.
