Vatican Museum entrance in relation to the train station

Jump to last reply

Hope someone can answer this, trying searching but didn't find what I was looking for. I also tried looking it up on a map but couldn't figure it out

We will be on a cruise and taking the train in from Civitavecchia to the San Pietro stop. We want to go into the vatican museums first. What is the easiest route from the train station. Don't want to go into the square and then have to walk all the way around, is there an easier way? Is it walkable or do we need to take a taxi or bus from the train station?

I know that there is an exit from after the Sistine Chapel that puts you right at the Basilica without walking all the way around outside. Can anyone give more information on exactly where this exit is? I have heard it is not marked as an exit.

TIA
