• Please note that when the Basilica of St. Peter is closed for religious functions, you will spend longer time in the Vatican galleries with your private guide. The basilica is a church and as such, the Vatican can decide to use it for religious functions without any notice. The local tour operator is not responsible for unexpected closures of the basilica
• There is a dress code to enter the basilica and Sistine Chapel: shoulders and knees must be covered. If this dress code is ignored, you might be refused entrance
