Know before you go
- Please note:
- All visitors must pass through airport-style security. During high season the wait at security may be up to 30 minutes.
- Due to the increasing popularity of Pope Francis and the increased activity in organizing mass events at the Vatican, some areas may be closed at the last minute without prior notice. This has already occurred this year and could happen again during your Vatican tour. In these cases the Sistine Chapel and/or St. Peter’s Basilica might not be accessible. If this occurs your tour guide will provide you with a valuable alternative concentrating the tour inside the Vatican Museums.
- A dress code for both men and women requires shoulders and knees to be covered. Shorts and skirts are fine, but must cover the knees.
- This tour is not suitable for kids under 5 years of age.
