Sistine Chapel closed to visitors

Jump to last reply

Starting this afternoon, the Sistine Chapel will be closed to visitors as they begin preparation for the forthcoming Conclave to elect a new Pope. The Borgia Rooms (where cardinals take their midday meals) and exhibition of modern religious art that adjoins the chapel will also be closed until further notice.
Otherwise the Vatican Museums are expected to remain open throughout the Conclave, though closure of some of the sections at short notice is possible. Guided visit to the Vatican Gardens has been suspended since Feb 25th.
