Respecting Religious and Historical Monuments

Many churches will expect you to cover your shoulders and to dress ‘appropriately’ when visiting. Some churches may also expect to search any bags before entering, leave any suitcases or pull alongs in their storage facilities and will forbid flash Photography or photography of any kind depending. This is because Churches in Rome are Catholic and are seen as Holy entities.

When it comes to monuments – you may be asked not to touch them or stand in certain places – this is because many are thousands of years old – and they are trying to reduce unnecessary damage.
