It’s the sixth year in the row that the Museums have offered visitors the chance to tour the Museums between the hours of 1900 and 23.00 and it follows the great success of the previous night-time openings. An added bonus for visitors visiting the Museums on Friday evenings during these coming months is a series of cultural events and concerts entitled “Il Bello da Sentire” (Beauty to Hear) . The performances will begin at 20.30, last around an hour and do not incur any extra cost.
All night-time visits have to be booked in advance and the complete calendar of events will soon be available on the Vatican Musuems website: www.museivaticana.va
