• Please wear comfortable shoes
• For women, it is required to cover your knees and shoulders while in St. Peter's Basilica
• No large bags are allowed so please leave these at your residence
• Unfortunately, the group tour is not wheelchair accessible
• Please note that the Wednesday morning tour will not visit St.Peter's Basilica, as the church is closed for the weekly Papal Audience at this time. The tour will run as normal, with extra time spent exploring the Vatican Museums in more detail
