Please help me plan Vatican day which includes Scavi Tour

Jump to last reply

We have Scavi tickets for Wednesday, May 23rd at 1:30 . If there is a papal audience that day ( the last I checked, the schedule isn't available for May), it will begin approximately 10:30. We do not plan on buying tickets for the audience. I understand St.Peter's is not open during that time.

I'm trying to plan our day at the Vatican and could use your help. Does this make sense?

9:00 Pre-booked Vatican Museum Tour
lunch
1:00-1:15 Be in line for Scavi
1:30 Scavi Tour
3:00 Tour ends
Climb the Cupola,tour tombs, tour St.Peter's

Questions - approximately how long for Museums? where to eat lunch ? I still need to figure out logistics from Museums to Scavi entrance and Scavi exit to Climbing the Cupola etc.

I've read the Climbing the Cupola information and still can't grasp if there is a visual difference from climbing vs. taking the elevator. Do you end at the same location ?

The daily mass schedule shows a 5:00pm mass. How does this impact touring St.Peter ? I really don't like the idea of disrespectfully scooting around while a mass is taking place.

Thank you
