Religion in Italy

Italy has always had a very religious society, with religion most aspects of life whether art and architecture or government and the legal system.

The seat of the Roman Catholic Church is in Vatican City in Rome, where the Pope resides. Though figures suggest that only 25% of Italians attend mass regularly, it can’t be denied that most Italians are firm believers in their faith.

Mature Protestant and Jewish communities are also present and now there is a growing Muslim immigrant community.

Italy’s cathedrals and churches are religious institutions and not museums. When mass is in progress, it is inappropriate to visit. Be modestly dressed, or you may not be given admittance to a place of worship. Your knees and shoulders must remain covered while you are there.
