From April to the end of October, the Vatican Museums are also open on Friday evenings. For German tourists it is a unique opportunity to visit the Vatican Museums and the Sistine Chapel. In addition, our private German-speaking leadership is the best way to discover the innumerable treasures of the Vatican.
Enjoy the special atmosphere of the illuminated rooms and let your private guide show you the most important sights of the museums in a personal way.
The Sistine Chapel
The Sistine Chapel and the Vatican Museums are among the most visited attractions in Rome, with over 30,000 visitors a day. Even if you come with us without queues in the museums, you can imagine here the rush of people during the day. Take the opportunity to visit the Sistine Chapel in the evening. Only in this way you can experience the frescoes of Michelangelo, who painted the vaulted ceiling and the altar wall of the chapel between 1508 and 1541, in all their glory.
The modernized lighting of the Sistine Chapel, especially in the evening, brings out the splendor of the wall frescos made by important Umbrian and Tuscan artists at the end of the 15th century, commissioned by Pope Sixtus IV.
The Vatican Museums
During the evening tour you will also visit other important sights of the Vatican Museums: the ancient statues of Laocoon and Apollo Belvedere, the Belvedere torso and the bronze statue of Hercules. Also: Raphael tapestries, the Geographical Maps Gallery and the Gallery of Antique Candelabra, Raphael’s Stanzas and Borgia Rugs.
For whom is this leadership suitable?
The guide is suitable for anyone who wants to experience the sights of the Vatican in a special way, that is: without many people and with a private guide. We advise families to do this guidance only when the children are taller and in the evening not too tired.
