Customers then have 3 hours to themselves to go off and explore, the options open to them are to: Visit the Vatican museums and Sistine Chapel, visit the Basilica, visit the tombs under the Basilica where past Popes are laid to rest, visit the “Cupola” the area at the very top of the Basilica's dome (this involves a ride in the lift followed by 320 claustrophobic steps), browse around the shops and stalls selling books and souvenirs, lunch break is during the 3 hours free time (packed lunch).
