What you'll do

There is no better time to discover the Sistine Chapel, the Raphael Rooms and the other masterpieces of the Vatican Museums than the evening hours around sunset. Only rarely are the Vatican Museums open at this unusual hour, when the magic light of evening twinkles off countless masterpieces as your expert guide brings them vividly to life. The crowds are usually much smaller at the Museums during the special summer late openings too, meaning you won’t have to fight for the best views. The highlight of our tour is of course the Sistine Chapel, the pope’s private chapel spectacularly decorated by Michelangelo’s frescoes – they look at their mind-blowing best at this hour, and you’ll be able to fully appreciate the great artist’s achievement in the blissful cool of evening with the help of the knowledge of Through Eternity’s expert and friendly guide. So experience another side of the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel by booking a place on our special Vatican Night tour, available every Friday during the Summer months!

My name is Desiree. I am a 31 year woman originally from the Netherlands. After studying tourism, International business and Languages and working in the Wine industry for 4 years I decided it was time for the next adventure.

I love getting to know new cultures, languages, food, wine (& cocktails), reading and dancing. I'm very passionate in sharing my knowledge and interest of the beautiful Italian cities, that I was lucky enough to visit.

I started working for a walking tour company 3 years ago that provides in-depth accessible tours for people looking to do tours on another level. It is called Through Eternity Tours.

Tour felt a bit over the top. Got some art history and the night access to the Vatican, but after going I'd probably suggest doing a self guided tour for cheaper during the day.

Meeting was extremely difficult. I was 5 minutes late and Desiree had the four start without me. She had no interest in helping me. I do not recommend this tour and would seek other professionals for a better experience.

Great tour, had Cristina do our tour. She knew a lot about the Vatican. We were able to skip the line and walk straight in. Was not as packed as day time.

Vasco led our tour to the Vatican! Vasco was super funny, informative, and helped us prioritize which of the Vatican's many treasures to pay special attention to! Because this was a night tour, we were able to spend time in the Sistine Chapple but not the Basilica. 10/10 would recommend!

Our Guide Fede was amazing and very knowledgeable and entertaining. This was my second visit to the Vatican Museums and I was going primarily for my Niece however, Fede made my second visit much much better than my first. There were so many details and so much information Sistine Chapel Fede sat us down to prepare us for what we were to see. I knew from my previous visit how beautiful the chapel is but with this additionally preparation I saw the Fresco’s with fresh eyes and found the chapel a very emotional experience. If you have the opportunity to tour with Fede take it! She made the experience magical
