    I live in Rome and I can guarantee that the Sistine Chapel will be closed next week.  I don't know if they close the Vatican Museums entirely.  

    They're saying that the Conclave will start on the 11th, so I imagine that things will start closing up once the cardinals start to arrive.  St. Peter's should be open for the duration, except for when the new Pope is announced.  

    Hit me up with Kos mail if you want alternative suggestions.  I teach art history here.
