My husband and I are planning our trip to Rome in July for the weekend and wanting to check a few details about The Vatican.. Is there a dress code for men and women, also are there any days that you cannot see everything due to closing.

Vatican museums are closed on Sundays except last Sunday of every month when they are free and open only in the morning and unbearable crowded. Vatican is an adjective so you should let us know what you plan to see and when will you be in Rome.

We have see travelers turned away for not following the dress code, especially in the summer months where shorts and tank tops are common. But not at the Vatican.
