Friday night Vatican Tour

Jump to last reply

If you have taken the Friday night Vatican tour, please comment on your experience. I would especially enjoying hearing from anyone who has done a tour both during the day and evening, to compare the two.

    About 9 years ago, my family and I toured the Vatican museums on the last Sunday of the month (when it is free). Big mistake because it was crazy crowded with wall to wall people.

    Did the Friday night tour 3 years ago (with Context Tours). I think there were less than 10 people in the Raphael rooms. I noticed the frescoes on the SIDE of the Sistine Chapel (by Botticelli, Perugino, Ghirlandaio, et al.) which had been obscured by the crowds.

    Did the Friday night entrance again last year(my travel mates had booked with Context, although I wandered on my own). It was more crowded because I think the word is out about Friday night. But still much less hectic than during the day.

    Not all galleries are open on Friday nights, so make sure you can see those things you are interested in. The Borgia apartments, Raphael rooms, Sistine Chapel, the courtyard and the classical antiquities were open. The Pinacoteca and some other sections were not.

    I would say, if it fits into your schedule, it is a nice way to see the museum and avoid some crowds.
