Will be in Rome for 3.5 days in Oct (arriving on a Sun around noon and leaving am Thursday). Originally plan to do the Vatican (museum / basilica etc) on the Tuesday as I heard that Monday can be quite crowded in the Vatican museum and planning to book the 10:30am tour for Tuesday with the Vatican.
I just got a confirmation from the scavi office and had the scavi tour arranged at 11:30am on the Monday!!! So these are my alternate plans:
Spend one whole day in Vatican
Basilica then scavi then get a 2:00pm Vatican tour
But…will that be cramming too much in one day? Too rushed?
Or should I:
Basilica then scavi and spend the afternoon elsewhere like colosseo / forum and have Vatican on the next day?
