Fancy an After-Hours Private Vatican Tour?
Even the most inexperienced of travellers know that no visit to Rome is complete without a trip to the Vatican City – officially the world’s smallest independent state, in the heart of the culture-soaked Italian capital.
St. Peter’s Basilica, the Sistine Chapel, the Vatican Library, and… people. Lots and lots of people. MASSES of People – collectively known as tourists. Selfies, fanny packs, and the loudest of voices… *sigh*
Yes. Unless you are best pals with 'The Papa' (…didn’t think so), you will have to put up with throngs (and maybe some thongs) of sweaty tourists if you want to see the magnificence of the Vatican.
Until now… Until the After Hours Private Vatican Tour.
What's special about this evening visit?
When 7pm hits, the Vatican Museums close for the day and the crowds disperse. EVERYBODY LEAVES... Everybody, that is, apart from you and the (only) nine others in your group. When the doors close, that’s when you begin your super-exclusive private visit.
The two-hour tour allows you to truly appreciate Rome’s most popular destination at your own pace, in whisper-quiet awe of your surroundings. In fact, you’ll feel like you have the place to yourself.
With so few people around, and no-one jostling for the best camera angle, you can shamelessly gaze at Michelangelo’s magnificent masterpiece in the Sistine Chapel, ask the tour guides countless questions, and meander, dawdle and linger to your heart’s content.
Indeed, you can do whatever you like (apart from steal artwork). After all, it is the VatiCAN, not the VatiCAN’T (ummm... again, please don’t steal any artwork).... (And send my regards to The Papa)
