Papal Audience at Vatican City

Join a Papal audience in St Peter’s Square! This is a once-in-a-lifetime experience and bookings are essential as you must have a confirmed reservation to attend.

With the election of Pope Francis 1, the Papal Audience has become a lively event! But don't worry... you're in safe hands on this tour.

Firstly, meet your local English-speaking guide who will escort you to St. Peter's Square via some fantastic Roman sights including the Piazza della Republica, the Piazza Barberini, the ancient Aurelian Walls and the famous Villa Borghese gardens.

When you arrive at Vatican City your guide will help you find a good spot to wait for the moment the Pope takes to the stage to give his multi-language blessing.
