CHURCHESGenerally, churches and sanctuaries are open to visits every day from 6.30/7.00 to 12.00 and from 14.00/14.30 until sunset. Exceptions:
Some churches operate a very strict dress code - strappy sundresses, tank tops, shorts and miniskirts are not considered respectable clothing. The solution for women is simple - carry a large but lightweight wrap to put round your shoulders. Men will either have to wear long trousers and suffer the heat, or do their church visiting (in long trousers) in the relative cool of the morning and change clothes after visiting.

SITES OF INTEREST
Museums, monuments and archeological sites are usually closed on Sunday afternoons and all day Monday. Their opening follow two patterns:
Tuesday-Saturday, 9am-7pm in summer, and 9am-5pm the rest of the year; or 9am-2pm (Sundays until 1pm). These given hours should be considered mere guidelines.
Petrol stations on the motorway are usually open ali day except on Sunday when many (but not all) close. Other stations are open 7.30am-12.30pm and again from 3.30-7pm, Monday-Friday. Some are closed on Saturday and most on Sunday.
Try to drive on a full tank at the weekend, and always keep a supply of several crisp 10 or 50 Euro notes handy to use in automatic petrol machines at self-service filling stations (Aperto 24 Ore- open 24 hours). If your notes are badly crumpled, the machine may not accept them.
