Rome Museums: So, what can take in with me?

Jump to last reply

In preparation for our up-coming trip to Rome, I have been reading official museum websites as well as Fodors threads about what can or can't be taken into the Vatican Museums & the Galleria Borghese. The information has been conficting or in the very least, unclear! Can you help clarify for me?

For example, the Vatican website states that 'it is not permitted to enter the Museums with alcoholic drinks.' Okay, I get that! But am I prohibited from taking bottled water into the Museums & St Peter's Basilica? I have read elsewhere that water is permitted.

The Galleria Borghese website states that 'Cloakroom - It is compulsory to deposit every kind of bag, purse, camera, video camera, umbrella.' So, should I be prepared to carry my wallet & identification with me as I tour the gallery while I leave my smallish shoulder bag in the cloakroom?

Small details, right? I suppose I just don't want any hassles or surprises when I arrive at these venues.

Thanks for your help!
