See the Vatican, the Sistine Chapel, and more – without the crowds
Dark Rome specializes in small, single-language tours in Italy. The company leads private, 30-minute escorted access to the Sistine Chapel in groups of 10 or less, part of a 3-hour Vatican and the Sistine Chapel Tour. The rest of the tour includes visiting private rooms to gaze at rarely-seen collections in the Vatican.
Exclusively available to Dark Rome, the hidden treasures of the Vatican include the Bramante spiral staircase and the Niccoline Chapel, which is decorated with frescoes by Fra Angelico and gilded with what’s said to be some of the first gold brought back from the New World by Christopher Columbus.
A variety of other Vatican and Sistine Chapel related tours are also available from Dark Rome, as well as Rome walking tours and guided excursions to the Colosseum, Roman Forum, Palatine Hill. Dark Rome also offers tours of Venice, Florence, and Milan.
