Yet another Vatican museum/Scavi tour question

Jump to last reply

We have reserved Scavi tour tickets for Friday, May 20 at 3:15pm. The response time was fantastic--only 5 hours! My question is this: we (my husband and I and another couple) want to also tour the Vatican Museum and Sistine chapel on the same day, as well as St. Peter's Basilica. We are aware that we will have visual and information overload, but our schedule does not permit any more than one day for this. What would be an optimal time to reserve tickets for the Vatican Museum and Sistine chapel? We were thinking about going around 11:30 or 12:00, but would that give us enough time? We tend not to take tours, but are thinking that a Context or similar tour may be better in this instance. Would this give us enough time to see St. Peter's while there is still daylight, or is it more magical in twilight?

A little background about us--we are not all big museum fans, especially the husbands. That's why I was thinking the Context tour might give us the "highlights" in a couple of hours; otherwise we would literally breeze through the Vatican museum to get to the Sistine chapel. I am planning a few breaks for the guys to feed and water them to keep them going all day.

In your opinions, would you do a self-tour of the Vatican museum or go on a guided tour, given our time constraints?

Thanks in advance.
