Vatican schedule

The Vatican is really vast, it's country, the smallest country in the world and it has the world's largest concentration of art works, all contained within 110 acres.

Visiting the Vatican's highlights requires 3 hours and so our tour of the Vatican includes:
Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel and St. Peter's Basilica.

This tour requires walking about 2 miles indoors and you cannot cut your visit short, once you enter you have to go through the whole thing and there are very few places where one can sit and rest.
Therefore, if you have mobility issues, we recommend using a wheelchair for this tour.
The Sistine Chapel cannot be visited separately from the Vatican Museums.

You cannot rush through the Vatican Museums and get to the Sistine Chapel quickly, the place is huge and always very crowded.

St. Peter's Basilica can be visited freely, you don't have to buy any admission fee, but since 9/11 they make you walk through metal detectors and that causes the formation of long lines. Depending on day of the week and the time of the day you get there, you may end up standing in line even more than one hour. If you are a disabled person, or if there is a  disabled person in your group, they will let you avoid the line and walk in through a secondary passage.

If you rent a wheelchair from us instead you can use it for the whole tour of the Vatican.

The "Last Judgment" by Michelangelo
 

Michelangelo - Sistine Chapel - The final Judgment      

How you should dress when visiting the Vatican: Saint Peter's Basilica, Sistine Chapel and Vatican Museums.

The dress code applies also to  the Vatican Gardens and/or the Scavi (excavations under St. Peter's Church).

WEARING PROPER ATTIRE IS A MUST!

Tour of the Vatican - Disposable pants on sale Tour of the Vatican - Vatican City dress code - Warning outside St. Peter's

Something you need to be aware of is that there are monitors outside both St. Peter's and the Vatican Museums, both places have a very strict dress code: no skirts above the knee, no shorts, no bare shoulders (tank tops or sleeveless blouses are banned) and it's preferable to wear shoes. Better not wear flip-flops, also because they're not that comfortable on marble floors... You will not be allowed inside the basilica if you are not dressed appropriately. Slacks and jeans, however, are permitted and so are shorts, but below the knee also for men in the months of July and August. If you are out sightseeing in shorts, miniskirts, tank tops, sleeveless blouses, etc., and wish to enter a church, you must be dressed appropriately. Monitor are inside the church and the Sistine as well and they have the right to refuse entrance, and accompany you outside, if in their opinion the visitor is dressed inappropriately. You can get around this carrying long pants and a shirt/blouse with sleeves in a bag or backpack so that when you wish to enter a church, you can slip these garments on over your inappropriate attire before you enter.

Strict dress codes are especially adhered to at St. Peter's, so it's not even worth trying to enter wearing short skirts, shorts, or sleeveless tops. You will surely be refused entrance.

Again, no shorts, or sleeveless tops, but itís okay to wear jeans. In case you haven't been foresighted enough to carry additional apparel with you and you happen to be at the Vatican wearing inappropriate clothes you can still buy disposable pants and/or t-shirts and scarves on sale in the souvenir shops just outside St. Peter's. In addition to all of this, keep in mind that during your visit to the Vatican you'll be in a sovereign country regulated by it's own rules, where the laws of Italy or those of your own country do not apply! No smoking anywhere in the Vatican! 

All of the above does not mean you have to dress up like you were going to a wedding party, you just need to be covered and decent.

You might be dressed in rags,  but as long as  your sinful flesh is covered, you'll be admitted in!
