A body temperature screening will be carried out on visitors prior to entering the Royal Palace and starting the visit. The body temperature screening is compulsory.

To be admitted to the tour, visitors must wear a filtering face mask without valve covering mouth and nose. The mask will have to be worn during the entire visit. Inside the Royal Palace, the Palatine Chapel and the Royal Gardens, visitors must maintain the social distancing of 1 metre and avoid gatherings. It is forbidden to move away from the touristic route and/or enter areas forbidden to visitors in order to avoid interferences in areas only pertaining to the ‘Assemblea Regionale Siciliana’.

Visitors must respect the time booked for the visit, arriving on the site 15 minutes in advance in order to allow all the necessary checking, safety and sanitation procedures, as indicated on the booking voucher.
In case the Visitor should not respect these indications, the safety staff, in charge with the control of the vouchers, will not allow them inside the Royal Palace and no refund will be paid. In no case access will be allowed with a delay of over 10 minutes.50 visitors at a time will be allowed into the Complex, so that no more than 200 visitors at the same time will be within the area in the hour time unit.
