St Peter's Basilica, Rome, early morning

Jump to last reply

I see from the website that St Peter's Basilica opens at 7am - has anyone visited early and how crowded was it? I'm guessing it would be fairly quiet but I really wouldn't be surprised to hear that there was already a huge queue first thing in the morning.

And is there already a queue for the cupola heading for 8am when it opens.

Got the Scavi Tour booked for 10.15am on a Friday so thinking about doing the Basilica and Cupola early, grabbing something to eat - any recommendations in that area? - and then heading back for our Scavi tour. Just trying to gauge whether it is worth getting there early or just going for it after the Scavi tour.

Doing the Sistine Chapel and the Vatican Museums a different day.

Thanks for any advice.
