FAQ

Q. Can I take photos during my Vatican visit?
A. Non-flash photography is permitted in most areas of the Vatican Museums and St. Peter's Basilica. But, photography of any kind is not allowed inside the Sistine Chapel.
Q. What should I wear on my Vatican visit?
A. Men, women, and children must have their shoulders and knees covered at all times. Low-cut clothing and hats are not allowed.
Q. Can I bring a backpack to the Vatican Museums?
A. Yes, guests can carry bags if they are smaller than 40cm length x 35cm width x 15cm depth. Anything bigger than this, or any umbrellas or camera tripods, must be checked into storage at the beginning of the tour.

Since the tour ends at the other side of the museum, guests who are forced to check bags must leave the tour early to collect them or complete a 20-minute walk back to the entrance after their tour. Those doing the afternoon tour may not be able to retrieve their belongings until the next day. It is recommended that visitors travel light and avoid bringing large baggage.
Q. What is the best time to visit the Vatican?
A. If you want to avoid the crowds, go really early or really late. There are tours on VELTRA that provide access to the Sistine Chapel before it opens to the public and to the Vatican Museums after its operating hours.
Q. What is the best day of the week to visit the Vatican?
A. Visit on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday to avoid most of the crowds.

Most of the museums in Rome are closed on Mondays, the Papal Audience is staged every Wednesday, locals are part of the crowds on Saturdays and the Vatican Museums and Sistine Chapel are closed on Sundays.
