Vatican Museum Opening Times

by graeme83

I have been looking at visiting the Vatican Museum on the weekend of the 10th November. Is it the case that the museum is only open for 4 hours that weekend? I have been looking at the website and find it a bit strange that such a popular place is only open for such a short time on a weekend. Or have I got my wires crossed?

Hi, you've actually miscalculated/ On 10th November, the museum opens at 1000am and closes at 1.45pm. It is actually open for 3 3/4 hours only.
The following day(Sunday)it is closed all day

Re: Vatican Museum Opening Times

No, you are reading it correctly. The hours are affected by a number of things.

1. In November through February, the Museums are on winter hours. This is not unusual in Italy. The only odd thing is that the Museums open late (see next item).

2. For some months now, in order to combat the long lines at the entrance, tour groups have been allowed in earlier than individuals, whose opening was pushed back to 10:00 a.m. Since the closing time for winter hours didn't change (that I recall), this makes for a short day.

3. The Musuems are closed most Sundays, except for the last Sunday of the month, when the Museums are open and the entrance is free. Remember that this is not a State museum, but a collection of museums within Vatican City, which takes Sunday more seriously than most places.

So, in short, you've got 3.75 hours, unless you sign up for a tour - I think they get in at 9:00 a.m., but do check, because that's a recent development and I am not sure when the entrance actually opens for them...

Hello to all VTers and Ciao Bill,

I can confirm previous posts. From November 5th the Vatican museums open at 10am and do close at 1.45pm with last admission at 12.30!!

Registered travel agencies and tour operators are allowed to make advance reservations for their individual clients (minimum 5 people) or groups escorted by an official professional guide. There are 2 slots available 8-9 or 9-9.45!!

Regards,

Antonio

Travel Tips for Rome

An Audience with the Pope

by fishandchips

When Pope Benny is in Rome, he gives a public audience every Wednesday beginning at 10:30am (sometimes at 10am in summer). It takes place in the Paul VI Hall of Audiences, although sometimes St. Peter's Basilica and St. Peter's Square are used to accommodate a large attendance. Anyone is welcome, but you must first obtain a free ticket from the office of the Prefecture of the Papal Household, accessible from St. Peter's Square by the Bronze Door, where the colonnade on the right (as you face the basilica) begins. The office is open from Monday through Saturday from 9am to 1pm. Occasionally, if there's enough room, you can attend without a ticket.

At noon on Sunday, the pope speaks briefly from his study window and gives his blessing to the visitors and pilgrims gathered in St. Peter's Square.

Sermoneta
is a medieval...

by 10eke

Sermoneta

is a medieval village nestled on the side of the mountains overlooking Latina. If you need to hide from the unrelenting sun in Latina, you can go to the beach or run for the mountains. If you choose for the mountains, try Sermoneta. It is beautiful and still unspoiled.
Location
from Rome: take the 148 S.S. Pontina in the direction of Latina, near Latina take exit FS - Sermoneta.(FS stands for railway station)

From Freeway A1: Valmontone exit, towards Giuglianello, Choruses, Doganella.

Rent a Scooter!

by CourtneyLyn

You know the saying "when in Rome..." Well to do as the Romans do you MUST rent a scooter, or find a resident with one willing to let you hop on the back. One of my most beautiful moments in Rome occured at 4AM whipping by the Roman forum all lit up at night on the back of a scooter.

Be careful though, I have seen more accidents since I have been here. And, you must wear a helmet. A friend of mine has a very funny story. She was getting a ride on a scooter but the owner only had one helmet. They got pulled over and her friend ended up talking his way out of a ticket by saying that he had this opportunity to sleep with an american girl so he had to take the risk of riding without a helmet!!! The officer let him go. Now only in Italy would that be a significant excuse!!!!!

Rome Tip

by maxovna

We ate breakfast and dinner in the restaurant of our hotel in Ancio. I was surprised that they don't serve soup for dinner. They serve first spaghetti, then - the main course: minced meat with mashed potatoes and green peas. For the Russians spaghetti is also a main course.

Good times..

by JerryGozdek

Don't you think that the ban on everything on the Steps is a loss? In good old days u could stay there all night singing, listening to music, drinking wine... And with the ban on such entertainments the place has lost its glory and charm - I think...
