Vatican visit - shortcut to St. Peter's Basilica through Sistine chapel

Jump to last reply

I am visiting Rome next week and am planning to visit vatican museums and St. Peter Basilica.I will buy vatican museums ticket online on the official web site. I have read that there is a shortcut to St. Peter's Basilica through Sistine chapel . It marked for only for groups, but is otherwise not regulated.
I have read that people visiting individually(not part of group) have used this shortcut to get into the basilica thereby skipping the line outside St. Peter's. Some of these posts I saw are fairly old.
I want to know , if it is still possible to use this shortcut when not part of a group.
Is it a hit or miss or does it always work? Has anyone recently used this?
Based on whether or not I can use the shortcut , i have to decide whether to visit part of group or on my own.
