Know before you go
- All visitors must pass through airport-style security, during the high season this can take up to 30 minutes
- Saint Peter’s Basilica is subject to last-minute closures for religious ceremonies, when this occurs the local partner can offer customers an extended tour of the Vatican Museums; the local partner endeavors to tell tour groups ahead of time if there are any planned disruptions to the Basilica's opening hours, but this is not always possible and in these cases refunds or discounts are unavailable
- On Wednesdays, due to the Papal Audiences, access to St Peter's Basilica is not possible until 1pm
- Government-imposed COVID restrictions for entering countries and venues (like booster shots, negative COVID tests, or vaccine certificates with a QR code) may change with little notice: it is the responsibility of all visitors to ensure they check the official travel advice on the government website
