When in Rome, the Vatican Museums are a must. Nevertheless, the huge crowds that fill the Museums and the daytime Roman heat, can become unbearable. Join us on a night tour of what is one of the most precious art collections of the world, and don't worry about the day-time heat or large groups of fellow tourists.

Skip the line at the Vatican Museums as your guide whisks you past the infinite lines to take you to the Pinecone Courtyard where you will enjoy an Italian style aperitiff. Here you will have the opportunity to taste typical Roman delicacies as well as sip on the traditional Aperlo Spritz.

Follow your guide through the long halls and galleries of the Vatican, while listening to the stories, legends, and myths come to live. Discover the Gallery of Tapestries, one of the most astonishing places of the Vatican. Here you can admire one in a kind needlework of Belgian tapestry makers that were inspired from Raphael's designs and paintings. Learn about how Raphael made an homage to Pope Leo X, one of Raphael's most important patrons.

See for yourself how our understanding of the world has changed through out the centuries while passing by the Gallery of Maps, painted by topographers of the sixteenth century. Learn about the methods used to recreate the topography of the Italian regions and the known world at the time.

Continue your visit of the Vatican Museums as you enter the Sistine Chapel, the star of this experience, and witness Michelangelo's most iconic masterpiece. Admire the brilliance of the colours and details as you gaze at the ceiling and wall frescoes, including the "Last Judgment" and the "Creation of Adam". Learn from your guide about why Michelangelo nearly turned down such a daunting task, and appreciate the significance of his legacy for Western Art.

Book now and live the unique experience of having a drink at the Vatican Museums while discovering its art, history, and mysteries.
