I am going on the Euro Experience in june/july and I recently heard that you can't get into the Vatican or other churches if you have flip flops/sandals on. Do you have to wear shoes that cover your toes? Just curious if anyone has any info on this. Thanks!

    Flip flops are ok. Who wore sandals anda a robe and traveled in europe? LOL

    To 9Lives NO! Shorts are not aloud in Churches of any kind. Shoulders and knees MUST be covered for both guys and girls (modest dress!)

    I’ve read a few threads and have conflicting advice on whether guys can where shorts into churches

    Everyone just keeps saying modest dress (covered knees and upper arms).. But i don’t know if thats for guys, girls or both..

    Does it depend on the shorts, as i have some dressy shorts that cover my knees completely

    It’s for both guys and girls.

    The longer shorts should be ok (as long as your knees are definitely covered) but, I figure, if it’s just for that one day at the Vatican or Duomo or wherever else, then wear pants, just to be safe.

    No tank-tops for guys either, make sure it’s a t-shirt or shirt.
