Vatican Museums in August - should we/can we?

Jump to last reply

We are in Rome from Wednesday 13th August to Sunday 17th August 2014 and we were planning to go to the Vatican Museums and St Peter's Basilica. However it seems the only day we can visit is the Saturday as it is closed on both the 14th and 15th... (we arrive too late on the Wednesday - 3pm - to make the Vatican I feel but are assuming this time will also be busy since it's before it closes for 2 days?) In your experience will this make the Saturday even more busier than ever to the point of being unbearable? We were planning on arriving at St Peter's early and booking tickets for the 9am entry but might this still prove to be crazy? I am very, very keen to visit but since I am travelling with my family (including 4 teenagers and a 7 year old) I worry that I am going to put them under too much pressure - my husband is not great with crowds in particular! I do have a plan of what we would like to see in the Museums and would limit our time in there to 90 mins for this trip - so could effectively be out by 10.30.

Any thoughts on how we could still visit and keep our sanity or should we just 'save the visit to next time'?
