Experience the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel when the palaces are at their most peaceful. You’ll see the best of the Vatican Museums. This tour's privileged entrance will let you skip the line in small groups of 20 participants or fewer. Take advantage of these special Friday night openings of the Vatican. Few visitors are aware of the Vatican Museums’ extended opening hours throughout the summer months on Friday night, which means that you’ll share the galleries and the apartments with fewer people, skipping the busiest hours during the day. In the evening light and with fewer tourists, you’ll find it easier to pick out the details in Michelangelo’s famous frescoes. During your tour, your guide will take you to see some of the finest ancient sculptures and Renaissance art in the world, including, the Hellenistic ‘Laocoon’ and the beautiful Apollo ‘Belvedere.’ Enjoy the possibility to go right up to these world-famous pieces. The highlights of the tour are, of course, the Sistine Chapel and the private chapel of the Pope.
