I'll be visiting the Vatican this winter (have one full day, but only one day).
I'm probably going to do a guided tour with one of the "partner" tours like Dark Rome, but it seems that I have to choose either a tour that goes to the Sistine Chapel before the crowds (which sounds like it would be well worth it) OR the tour that includes the Pinacoteca and the Bramante Staircase, which i'd really love to see. There seems to be no tour that does both :(
Any recommendations on what to pick? I'll be there in the first days of January and have been reading that due to school vacation time in Rome, it's as busy on those days as the peak of summer.
Looking for some opinions from folks on what the better option is. Or if there is a different option altogether.
