Count on that being the case in all of Italy, really. And your shoulders must be covered as well. Think about it. You wear church clothes to church. They're not tourist attractions, they're churches.
A nice blouse and long skirt in Italy is a must. Takes care of the entrance issue and the unfortunate toilet issue at the same time.
Also, I wouldn't count on there being a toilet on a tour bus at all. There might be, but as has been mentioned, it's not guaranteed to be in working order.
