On Sunday, Rome virtually shuts down on its official day of rest. Meanwhile, state museums and exhibition halls, plus many restaurants are closed Monday. Daily food shop hours generally run from 10 to 1, then 4 until 7:30 or 8, but other stores in the center usually observe continuous opening hours. Pharmacies tend to close for the lunch break and keep night hours (ora rio notturno) in rotation. As for churches, most open at 8 or 9 in the morning, close from noon to 3 or 4, then reopen until 6:30 or 7. St. Peter's, however, has continuous hours from 7 to 7 (until 6 in the fall and winter), and the Vatican Museums are open on Monday but closed Sunday (except for the last one of the month).
