12 noon visit to Vatican & Sistine Chapel?? good or not

Hey guys looking for your advice. Sistine Chapel & Basillica is a must for us on Tuesday as we leave wednesday evening but the earliest I can pre-book tickets is for 12 noon. I'm Afriad this might leave us rushing around and missing out on some of it.

What is the earliest time you can enter the basillica and do you need tickets to get in??

First timer in Rome

Many thanks

The museums are open til 6 and the basilica is open til 7 so you won't need to rush through either of them.

There are no tickets for St Peter's Basilica.

The Basilica and the Museums are completely different. If you can get tickets for the Museums at noon, then go earlier in the morning, say 9 to spend time at St. Peters. The museums are a fair walk from St. Peters so give yourself a bit of time for that. The Basilica needs no ticket but will have a security line.

Yes, men in long pants with shoulders covered. Women in anything below the knee with shoulders covered.
