Church Services, Italy

As Italy is a predominant Roman Catholic country, the majority of churches are Catholic. However in all the large cities there are also Anglican and protestant churches, synagogues, and mosques.
In most of the major cities, there will usually be a mass celebrated in English on Sundays, ask at the local tourist information centre for times and addresses.

Churches are usually open 8.30-12.00 and 16.00-18.00 except during services.
Most churches require modest dress for entry especially St. Peters in Rome.
This excludes sleeveless and low-cut tops, short mini-skirts, skimpy shorts and bare feet. Males are also not allowed to enter St. Peters with shorts.

Works of art in churches are often illuminated by coin-operated lighting. Tourists need to show respect and silence when entering a church as while it might contain famous works of art, it?s primary role is a place of prayer and worship. Camera?s with flashes are also not appreciated.
