I am coming to Italy for the first time and am having a hard time getting my head around how the Vatican visits are laid out. Is visiting the Basillica part of the Vatican Museum Tickets or can you go to the Basillica without a ticket?
I currently have tickets to go on the Scavi tour at 10:00 am and wasn't sure if I could look at the Basillica before the tour and then plan to go the Vatican Museums at 12:00 or how that would work.
I know we want to do the Scavi tour, see the Basillica, and see the Sistene Chapel. Don't kill us but my touring partner and I aren't huge art lovers so I don't think we want to spend a ton of time in the Museums but maybe I am missing something. If someone could give me some guidance I would love it.
We don't think we want to do a tour of the Museums because we are more of the type of people who like to go at our own pace and we don't want to get stuck in front of one piece of art for an overwhelmingly long time because we really aren't that into art.
