Full description
Escape the crowds and skip the ticket lines to see the masterpieces of the Vatican Museums on this 3-hour evening tour, and explore the galleries long after the large tour groups have departed.

Your friendly licensed guide will meet you just outside the museum, and whisk you to the fast track entry so you can wander the Gallery of Maps, Vatican Library, and much more.

Considered one of the most important art collections in the world, the Vatican Museums are home to legendary paintings and sculptures that popes have collected over the centuries. Go to the Raphael Rooms, the former apartments of Pope Julius II, decorated with important frescoes by the great Renaissance painter.

Continue to the Sistine Chapel to see Michelangelo’s “Last Judgment” under a softer evening light for a more magical experience. Marvel at Raphael’s tapestries, frescoes by Botticelli, Rosselli, Ghirlandaio, and more.
