Vatican in the moonlight

This tour will give you the opportunity to experience the beauty and art of Vatican Museums by the moonlight. A fairy tale art!

Everything is more charming by night imagine the Vatican Museums. In the soft Rome’s sunset shadows, lights go on showing galleries and rooms in a new splendor, they enhance marbles and their decorations. But most of all the immortal masterpieces that you can admire are the real stars of the evening! The beautiful statues and sculpture will tell us about ancient Romans while through the Baroque and Renaissance arazzi together with paintings and bas-reliefs we will understand the Italian art through centuries. The core of the Vatican collections are The Raphael Rooms and Michelangelo Sistine Chapel. The two great Masters worked at the papal court in the same years and more precisely at the beginning of 1500 leaving us their masterpieces so close, but so different at the same time. Exactly as much as for renaissance people, their masterpieces still impress and enchant us.

Our two tours booked through Emanuel were awesome.  Our tour guides were very knowledgeable and pleasant.  I would highly recommend Romebylocals to book your Italy fours.  They were very responsive and the rest of the members of my family (all 13) agreed.  Thank you for making our experience memorable.  I will see you in 2 years
