Vatican Museums & Colosseum at night

If you want to see art at night the Vatican museums will return for the fourth year running on 4th May. This has by now become a fixed event in Rome’s spring and summer calendar. So, beginning on 4 May, the Vatican Museums will be open every Friday from 7.00 to 11.00 pm. The Night Openings will continue to 26 October (except for the period from 20 July to 31 August).

MUSEUM SECTORS OPEN TO VISITS: Egyptian Museum, Pio-Clementine Museum, Upper Galleries of the Vatican Museums, (Gallery of Tapestries and Candelabra, Hall of Maps),Raphael’s Rooms, Borgia Apartment (limited to Rooms I, III, IV, XIII, XXVIII), Collection of Modern Religious Art, Sistine Chapel.

This exclusive invitation to visit the Museums by night is addressed not only to all tourists, Italian and foreign, for whom the Vatican Museums are a “sanctuary of art and faith” – to use the words of the Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI – but also and above all to all the Roman public, normally too busy to visit the Museums during the day.
