I have booked a guided tour for Vatican /Sistine chapel for 1.30 in the afternoon. Will I be able to go to St Peter's square first and have a look around the general area first. If so, how much time should I leave to get into the Vatican to begin my tour?
I am flying at 9pm that night so I wanted to spend all day there if possible.
Also I know I can skip the queue - is it obvious where to go, do you just walk past all the people queing and go straight to security of is there a seperate enterance?
