Just got my Scavi confirmation for Halloween!!

How cool is that! I made the request way back in early September and had set myself up not to be disappointed if I didn't get in because according to the official calendar they will be closed on that day (how did I get a tour I have no idea) and for All Saints Day.

Yes, and they are supposed to be closed for both days.

The Vatican website is only showing closure on November 1. I'm not trying to be snarky, just make sure other people know that the Vatican is running business as usual on October 31.

Congratulations Booklover!

I, too, made the request back in early September (9/5) and I haven't heard from the Vatican yet aside from the initial confirmation. I'm wondering which day did you send our your initial request?...as a comparison.

Thank you.
