Sistine Chapel Shortcut?

Jump to last reply

I don't know the Vatican museum/Sistine Chapel routine well enough to make sense of this, but it appears that for those wanting to see just the Sistine Chapel without the march through the museum, there may be a shortcut if you go in the morning:

Context Travel's Jessica Stewart reveals in our "Secrets of the Vatican" story that the Simonetti staircase is open to the Greek Cross in the morning. Visitors who go first thing could walk down the spiral and straight to the Sistine Chapel to view it nearly empty — if they arrive early enough.
