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.

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.

I took many photos of the inside of Westminster Abbey accompanied by the Rector who married Prince William and Catherine in 2011.

I have literally hundreds of photos of the insides of the Sistine chapel. As I recall, at least at the time, no flash photography was allowed. It's been a decade or two since I was there though.

I have pictures of three of these iconic places and I'm satisfied. I also obey the rules and others should so that no harm should befall such beautiful works of art.

Can understand if could cause damage or disturb others but otherwise it's a money issue
