The most visited places you are not allowed to photograph

It's hard to believe that some of the most recognizable and visited places are not allowed to be photographed! For some of them there's a restriction for taking photos inside the buildings, for others you have to buy a permission for photo shooting.

Now we are waiting for your response! What is your opinion? Is there anything you want to share with us? Your comments count!

Photo #5 is not of the Sistine chapel, it is of the Pantheon.

👍🏼Eiffel Tower, Sistine Chapel and Westminster Abbey, I’ve been and seen. We’re allowed to take pictures of the building outside but prohibited to take pictures inside. Lovely architectural buildings!!

John Milette,This is in fact the dome in St. Peter's Basilica. Check it on Google images.

I had no idea photos were forbidden in these famous places! But with technology as it is, couldn't a person video the tour?

I feel it is virtually impossible to police this in modern times , with a camera in every ones phone . I admit to having the odd photo where it was restricted .

John Milette, it may be the interior of the dome of St. Peters

Geoff Joyce, that restriction was lifted.

I'm not sure about the wording of number 6. The sites around Uluru that you're not allowed to photograph are culturally sensitive for the Anangu people because they're either women's sites that Anangu men aren't permitted to see or vice versa. 'Holy' isn't the right word. I know, because I'm a tour guide there.

You’re not allowed to take pictures of the Amber room in the Catherine Palace in St Petersburg either.

John Milette, PLease check your comment John. Photo number 5 is most certainly not the Pantheon....

John Milette, think you are confused. It is the Pantheon. The Sistene chapel does not have a dome shaped roof with an opening. Take a look at other photos on the internet of the ceiling of the Sistene chapel.

Had to buy slides of the Crown jewels in the Tower of London. They were better than anything I could have shot.

I would just love to see all those places. They must be so beautiful. Some places are just sacred.

I support the reason for no photos. I have been to the Sistine Chapel. Lovely.

Some people will object to being photographed. They do have a point.
