My husband and I will be in Rome on November 9 & 10 at the tail end of a trip to northern and central Italy. I've read the threads on this forum about visiting the Sistine Chapel, but most have been during the summer months. My question is, even in early November, should we expect crowds and long lines? Would we have a significantly better experience by spending $200 on a guided tour? The 7:30 a.m. Walks of Italy tour looks good and it gets good reviews, and I often like the information from a good tour guide vs. going it alone, but is it worth the splurge? Grazie - I'd really appreciate your thoughts.
