Tour Description

Our Vatican After-hours Tour with Aperitif is a private skip the line tour that will allow you to visit the Vatican and the Sistine Chapel after hours with a top private guide, enjoying the Vatican with a special evening atmosphere like you have never seen it before. You will have the opportunity to taste a first-class aperitif too. What is more appealing than combining a fresh cocktail with the stunning view inside the Vatican?

Every Friday in the summer months, the Vatican offers the special opportunity to visit at 7 pm. This is ideal for all those whose aim is to visit the Vatican away from the daily crowds and who prefer to enjoy the beautiful Italian Art in the evening, avoiding the summer day's hot temperatures. Not only that, you will also experience Italy's most beloved evening tradition, the 'aperitivo,' getting to sample a local cocktail and snacks.

Enjoying our Vatican at Night with Aperitif tour, you will enter the Vatican Museums with skip the line tickets that your private guide will have ready and waiting for you. You will then enjoy a tasty aperitif right inside the Vatican. The aperitivo is a world-renowned Italian tradition to keep you going until dinner time. It includes both a drink, usually alcoholic but not necessary, and yummy local snacks. It's the perfect way to start your night tour of Vatican!

Feeling refreshed, you will then visit the Vatican Museums, accompanied by an art history expert and fully licensed guide. Your visit to the Vatican will include all the highlights of its many galleries, the Gallery of  Maps, Gallery of Tapestries, Raphael’s rooms and the Gallery of the Candelabra. Of course, you will have a chance to visit the most famous chapel in the world, the stately Sistine Chapel, with its stunning frescoes that attracts millions of people from all around the world every day.

Unfortunately, you won’t be able to visit St. Peter Basilica, because it is closed to the public during the evenings. However, you will be sure to finish the evening amazed by the beauty of the Vatican under the moonlight. A stunning wonder that has to be seen at least once in a lifetime.

If the idea of savouring a first-class Italian aperitif while being blown away by the spectacular beauty of the Vatican and the Sistine Chapel appeals to you, be sure to contact us today. This is no ordinary private tour of the Vatican, our Vatican After-hours Tour is an evening out!
