Vatican VIP after-hours dining
Award-winning operator Trafalgar has four exceptional after-hours experiences within the Vatican for its guests. Having offered exclusive access to private dining within the Ethnological Museum for the past two years, this year has seen new unrivalled VIP dining opportunities within the hallowed city.
Guests travelling on Contrasts of Italy, Grand European, Best of Italy & Sicily and Rome Explorer enjoy al fresco dining under Italian summer skies at the Cortile del Giardino Quadrato (square garden). Situated outside of the Ethnological Museum and boasting spectacular views of the cupola of St Peter’s, feasting here is a true treat for all the senses. Adverse weather contingency is provided in the Bistrot della Pigna, the newly-created dining space within the Cortile della Pigna, also nestled deep inside the historic city walls. Prior to dining, Trafalgar travellers on these four trips also have the opportunity to view the array of incredible artefacts at the Museo Gregoriano Profano.
Holidaymakers choosing Grand Italian Experience or Rome & Tuscan Highlights will absorb the ambience of the city within the Eternal City and enjoy dining with a distinct difference among the artistry of Museo Gregoriano Profano or the stunning surrounds of the Salone di Raffaello of the Pinacoteca, with access to the Museum available pre-dining.
