Let us book your entrance and guide you to Pope Francis' Public Audience. You'll have just to get involved in this intense spiritual experience, without any stress in planning your day. To live a very immersive experience in Catholic traditions, see Pope Francis himself and learn the unique history of the Vatican City, be part of our tour to Wednesday Papal Audience. The Audience represents a very intense point of contact between the Pope and the faithful coming from the four corners of the world. Pope Francis and the Cardinals will pass through the crowd reaching their stage, greet and bless people in different languages, with hymns and homilies. To get your reserved pre-booked tickets with no stress and gain the sits available closest to the Pope, be supported by an expert local guide and an audio device, and be perfectly on time in this busy and requested great event, we recommend choosing this tour. The Audience may be celebrated in the majestic venue of St. Peter’s Square or in the dedicated Nervi Hall, according to Vatican schedule. If in St. Peter's Square, you will also walk with us close to the monumental Castel Sant'Angelo and along Via della Conciliazione, in order to reach St. Peter's in the background and pass the security check-points to the Vatican City. Our guide will tell you the story and the secrets of the Vatican, suggest where to sit and make your arrival works smoothly despite crowds. Then, at the end of the Audience (about 11:30/11:45 am), you will meet our guide again in Via della Conciliazione 48, to get refreshed with a complimentary bottle of water and to return the audio device. Remember that Papal Audience tickets are free but very much in demand and that making your own arrival at this event could be very hard. So, book them with us in advance to be sure to take part in this once-in-a-life moment.
