Rome: Mind the dress codes

They’re especially strict for visits to the Basilica di San Pietro and the Musei Vaticani: shorts, tank tops, and halter tops are taboo. Shoulders must be covered. Women should carry a scarf or shawl to cover bare arms if the custodians insist. Those who do not comply with the dress code are refused admittance.

    This is true! One of my friends was denied entrance for wearing shorts! She had to go back to the hotel and change!
