Full description
Embark on a small-group night tour of the Vatican City, away from the heat and the crowds of the day time. Enjoy a unique view of Rome at its "golden hour," as the sun sets over the grounds of the Vatican. Explore the Cabinet of the Masks, the Gallery of Maps, the Hall of Animals, the Gallery of Tapestries, and Raphael's rooms with your expert guide in a group of no more than 6 people. Additionally, visit a "secret room" which is not open to the general public during the day, allowing for a personalized and memorable experience. Enter the magnificent Sistine Chapel, and be enchanted by the beautiful glow of the sunset which seeps its way in through the stained glass windows. Finish the tour in St. Peter's Square, where you can enjoy the beauty of its night-lit wonder for as long as you wish. Enjoy the surroundings of Bernini’s famous colonnades and take photos of the evening lights upon St Peter’s Square. Take your time and explore the various corners and cobblestones Rome by night has to offer.
