Overview

On this tour, you’re promised an up-close encounter with one of the world’s most significant religious figures. While tickets to the weekly papal audience are free, this tour guarantees you entry and lets you bypass the busy crowds and find a prime viewing position right at the front. Audio headsets ensure you’ll hear your guide’s in-depth commentary, and this intimate tour is capped at only 20 people.

What to Expect

The papal audience is a long-standing tradition that’s attended by both pilgrims and people of diverse backgrounds from all over the world. On this tour, you’re guaranteed seamless admission to this extremely popular weekly event. Meet your guide near St. Peter’s Square in the morning and don an audio headset, which will allow you to clearly hear his or her commentary throughout the tour.

Next, cut through the crowds and find a prime viewing position right at the front of the room. Learn about the history of the papacy and other stories from your guide.

When the event begins, you’ll be perfectly situated to listen to the Pope’s address, watch the cardinals lead pilgrims in prayer, and listen to the hymns, prayers, and homilies that are a traditional part of the papal audience.

When the event is over, you can explore St. Peter’s Square at your leisure.

What an experience

It was an amazing event, thousands and thousands of people seated in the square (all having gone through security long lines). There was a band playing up the front and our guide got us in quickly, and found us good seats right at the front...More

Very special day

I thought it would be a more intimate affair but there was tens of thousands of people in attendance, formal pilgrim groups and ordinary pilgrims from all over the world. It was very cool. But this concept of obtaining free tickets is redundant as for...More

Once you receive your pass to attend you meet in the Vatican plaza. You need to get the pass the day before as it is limited and fills up fast. My suggestion is on the day you go get there as early as possible.

Yes its only Wednesday, but he also does blessing on Sundays after/during mass but he doesn't drive around the audience like Wednesday. Sunday is from the balcony.
