I've received confirmation that I can book a Scavi tour for Wednesday, March 27th at 1:30 PM. I understand that Wednesdays are also the day when Papal Audiences occurs, and I have confirmed that there is a Papal Audience scheduled for that day.
At first glance, I figured I could book a tour of the Vatican Museums for early that morning, take a lunch break, do my Scavi tour, and then from there go straight to St. Peter's Basilica and climb up to the Dome.
Is this doable? I know Wednesdays can be tricky with the Papal Audience, so I wasnt sure how packed it would be and if I'd be better off trying another day?
Another question, is it possible to leave Vatican City after I'm done with the Museum tour and go grab lunch at someplace nearby (like Pizzarium) then come back for my Scavi tour?
