The most visited places you are not allowed to photograph

I have learnt in my lifetime it's easier to do and not ask permission. Easier to apologize than ask permission. I've taken pictures unaware I wasn't suppose to and no one ever told me to stop. I will continue to carry my camera and snap at will until I'm told not to.

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

Never heard of not being allowed to take photos of the Eiffel Tower when it is lit up at night and "sparkling" for 5 minutes every hour. Took pics and posted them several years ago. No one ever informed us not to do it.

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

Graceland, home of Elvis Presley in Memphis Tennessee is the second most visited house in the USA. Photography is banned for the same reason it is banned at the Sistine Chapel. I agree with the comments that the photo shown is not the Sistine Chapel

The Sistine Chapel is not a museum it is a Chapel next to the Vatican Museum and no photos are allowed and your phone or camera could be confiscated. The reason for no photos is all rights to photograph the art belongs to Eastman Kodak given to them for doing the cleaning and restotation in the 60's.
