Posted: 8 Nov 2017 Trafalgar takes Vatican VIP exclusive after-hours dining experiences to the next level

Award-winning operator Trafalgar has revealed four new exceptional after-hours experiences within the Vatican will be available to its guests during the 2018 operating season. Having offered exclusive access to private dining within the Ethnological Museum for the past two years, the global guided holiday brand has now announced further unrivalled VIP dining opportunities within the hallowed city.

Guests travelling on Contrasts of Italy, Grand European, Best of Italy & Sicily and Rome Explorer will 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.

Commenting, Trafalgar’s Managing Director, Theresa Szejwallo said: “We are thrilled to be able to offer our guests the optimum opportunity to experience the Vatican as a VIP after-hours. It truly is an honour for Trafalgar to be extended such privileges to reveal another side of this spectacular site. For our agent partners looking to provide their clients with the chance to truly connect with the places to which they travel, we look forward to working with you to secure your sales success for 2018 and beyond.”

With 70 years’ experience, more than five million guests, 230 itineraries to six continents a completely transparent and genuine 97% satisfaction rate and 52% YOY repeat travellers, Trafalgar is committed to putting the simplicity and fun back into selling its authentic experiences.
