Vatican visit

Jump to last reply

We are planning a 2+ weeks trip in May 2014 to Italy (Rome and Amalfi Coast).
We’ll have 6 1/2 days in Rome (1/2 is the first day when we land at 7:45 am, if current flight schedules maintain), with a day trip to Tivoli, and I will come back here later with a detailed plan for you to take a look at. As of now, I keep cutting things, because I realize that even 6 full days don’t allow us to see everything…

So, one of those Rome days (Tuesday, I think) we will visit the Vatican. Most likely we will take the morning Pristine Sistine tour with Walks of Italy, which starts at 7:35am and lasts 3 hrs 45 min (according to their web site).

1) I like that the tour gets us in early, before the crowds, but I hear that after you finish the tour (that ends in the basilica), you cannot go back to the museum to visit areas where the tour does not go. Is that true? Any way we could get back into the museum?
2) I really want to climb up the dome of the basilica, so I guess we’ll have to do that after lunch. Do we need separate tickets for that? Any idea about how bad the lines are, usually?
3) Is it feasible to visit Castel Sant’Angelo after that?
Thanks
