During the audience with His Holiness Pope Francis and the tour of the Vatican Museums, Sistine Chapel, and St. Peter’s Basilica, all guests will need to adhere to modest and unadorned dress. Dark colors for the audience are the most appropriate. Women will need to cover their shoulders and knees. Men should wear a jacket during the visit to the museums and jacket and tie for the audience. All events at Vatican City involve extensive walking and steps – we advise all attendees to wear comfortable footwear.


Temperatures in Rome and Vatican City in December may vary from a high of 50–55°F during the day to a low of 37–45°F at night. We recommend a jacket, sweater, or wrap for the evenings, which can turn chilly after the sun goes down. For the local forecast, please click here.
