Full description
Get a once-in-a-lifetime experience in the Vatican City and attend the Papal Audience with Pope Francis I.

Following a pick-up from your hotel in Rome, transfer to the tour office near the Vatican City. Hear some of the most important stories of the Papacy and Vatican State as you walk to the Papal Audience. A tour assistant will help you find the best spot to see the Pope and his Cardinals as they give the blessing in many languages.

Admission tickets to the Papal Audience are free of charge, but can be very difficult to book. The Pope can cancel any date according to his other commitments, trips or circumstances. This service guarantees your pick-up from centrally located hotels in Rome and the best available seats for the Audience when available. End in St. Peter’s Square once the Papal Audience is over.
