Vatican City Walking Tour By Night

The most beloved place to visit in Rome, this unique Vatican tour includes the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel. All must-see destinations when visiting Vatican City - now beautifully illuminated by night and without the crowds. 


  1. This unique Vatican City walking tour by night begins with a visit to the Vatican Museums - one of the main destinations and top things to do in Rome. And you can skip the line, allowing you more time to discover great works of art by Michelangelo and other famous artists. 
  2. Explore works of art in the Pio-Clementino Museum and travel through the Gallery of the Tapestries and the Gallery of the Maps. At 75 meters long the Gallery of Tapestries is named after the elaborate Flemish tapestries that drape its walls. The Gallery of the Maps, painted between 1580 and 1585. takes its name from the 40 maps frescoed on the walls, representing each of the Italian regions and papal properties at the time of Pope Gregory XIII.
  3. Our sightseeing Vatican visit continues to one of the most revered places to see in Rome - and the world - the Sistine Chapel. An absolute must-see in Rome, our guide walks you through amazing works of art including Michelangelo's The Last Judgement - the largest fresco ever painted by one man. As you explore the endless wonders, our guide tells you the stories behind these famous masterpieces on this breathtaking Sistine Chapel tour.

Tolle Reiseführerin
Marilena war eine tolle Reiseführerin. Mit viel Wissen, Freude, Humor und Begeisterung führte sie uns durch die Tour. Sie lenkte den Blick auf Details, die wir sonst nicht wahrgenommen hätten. Leider leidet natürlich der Genuss der Kunstschätze unter dem Massenandrang und der knappen Zeit. Damit muss man leben. Wer Rom besucht, muß / will das gesehen haben. Aber für das Museum bräuchte man eigentlich viel mehr Muße - in einigen Räumen wird man vom Personal ständig aufgefordert, weiterzugehen - stehen bleiben war nicht erlaubt. Aber dafür kann Marilena nichts. Trotzdem eine lohnenswerte Tour - reibungslose Organisation.

10/10 thumbs
We were lucky enough to visit Rome recently, before setting off we booked two tours with Enjoy Rome, one for ancient Rome, and the other for a different day to the Vatican. It was a worry as we had never prebooked a tour before but we need not have worried, the organisation was 10/10 with thorough communication though out, we met our guides at the required point at the right time and then the fun began, our tour guide can not be responsible for the security measures that we had to pass through and putting all that to one side both guides gave us 100% attention, we had radios and headset which meant we missed none of the info, it worked brilliantly. The knowledge of the guides was top notch and although I considered myself knowledgeable I still learned so much. Our first tour was a 10mile walk through the Colosseum, ancient Rome, and took in sights of the city?. Our second tour was the Vatican museums and the Sistine chapel followed by St Peter's basilica. My thanks to both guides but in particular Larisa who made all my boyhood dreams of an ancient Roman tour possible, and thoroughly enjoyable. Thank you. the Vatican, Sistine chapel and at Peter's basilica

Super Experience
Very good experience. Joined the Vatican City tour with Francesco, very good explanation and guide very knowledgable. Did not wait more than 20 minutes in the queue and tour was very flowing. Well done.

A must see
Our first visit to Rome would not have been complete without a tour of the Vatican. This trip was booked as an optional extra with the package deal, so Enjoy Rome tour was selected by package company. 3 hour walking tour including the Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel, and St Peter 's Basilica. Fantastic tour. Priscilla our guide was informative and friendly. Headsets were given to everyone so we could all hear her comments,even if some of us had wandered off for a closer inspection of something that had caught our eye. Lucky to have a surprise welcome and short prayer by priest in Sistine Chapel. Art work amazing. St Peter 's architecture stunning. Note - tour ends at basilica. You can stay and explore the church and the gift shop but there are NO toilets until you have passed out of security into St Peter 's square. Something to consider after a 3 hour walk. Should have used the facilities prior to chapel but did not want to waste any of the 15 mins we were given and wrongly assumed there would be facilities at the tour end. A guide helps you learn so much more about the Vatican, so recommend you book a tour.
