Vatican Tour: some tips for travelers

For those attending Vatican tours is important to know that entry to the Museums, the Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter’s Basilica is permitted only to appropriately dressed visitors. However, the dress code for visiting the Vatican is the same that applies when you enter any church in Italy. Therefore, as a sign of respect both women and man must cover shoulders and knees with appropriate clothing. As a result, low cut or sleeveless clothing, shorts, miniskirts, and hats are not allowed.

The Pope’s Museums draws upwards of 35,000 visitors per day in high season. It is hardly surprising. They are home to the Sistine Chapel and some of the greatest finds from the ancient world. These are inspiring works in the history of art and so almost every visitor to Rome seems to want to tick them off their list. Because of this, taking a privileged entrance tour is definitely the best way to visit. On our Vatican private tours, you will skip the line with an expert guide leading the way.

The best time to visit the Vatican depends on the season. With this in mind, the busiest days are during April-October. Therefore, we recommend visiting off-season if possible.
