Know More about this tour

Your papal audience tour will start with you meeting your guide near St Peter’s Basilica in Vatican city. Put on your provided headset to start your papal audience experience. With your personal audio headset, you don’t have to worry about not being able to hear your guide over the throngs of people. While meeting The Pope is a Catholic custom, the event draws people of all beliefs from around the world, each week.

Following your guide, navigate the crowd to reach your seat, where you will be able to see The Pope when he arrives. While you wait, learn a bit about the history of the papacy in Rome and hear about Renaissance artists like Michelangelo who left such a beautiful mark on the Vatican.

As the address starts, listen to the cardinals leading pilgrims in prayer, and watch The Pope deliver his blessings for the week. The service includes hymns, prayers and a homily. When the address is over, you'll be ready to explore St Peter’s Square on your own.

Note: Immediately after booking, you must reconfirm your ticket using the phone number provided on your confirmation voucher. The local tour operator will ask for your home address, as this is required by The vatican city. Failure to reconfirm your ticket may result in it being canceled.

    What an experience. . .AMAZING! Our guide was so knowledgeable, as she worked for the Vatican 20+ years. She was engaged with the group, gave insightful and informative overview on the Piacy that we didn't know. Our tour was in English and she spoke it perfectly. This seating was ideal and I was able to get pictures, of a lifetime of the pope at the Blessing! This is was by far worth the money. Lots of people were there, so I would recommend getting there early. The guide handled the people trying to cut the line really well. The City Wonders guides are fantastic and when return to Italy next year, we will book any tour with them for sure.

    Great experience with Rafaella! Rafaella found us really good seats in the hall where the papal audience took place. I cannot recommend enough this tour! And ask for Rafaella; she is amazing and even told us some interesting stories of the vatican!

    We were seated almost at the left front corner and his holiness passed by 2x. We were very very close.

    We had such a wonderful time.
    The details sent before gave us all we needed to know in advance.
    Our guide, Monica, was brilliant. She told us lots of interesting facts about Vatican City and got us perfect seats to watch the Pope come past.
    Thank you!

    We were able to get as close as 8 feet to the Pope. Bring Children if you have them. The Pope actually Kissed many children

    The guide was really good and gave us some helpful information and history. She also seated us where we would get a good view of the Pope as he passed by which was great. Getting into the Vatican to our meeting place was confusing as many of us gathered together trying to figure out what we needed to do. I finally called to ask and was given directions on meeting our guide on the other side of the security fence. All is well, we got in, met our guide and enjoyed seeing the Pope. But the start was frustrating as we all worried that we would miss the tour.

    GiGi was terrific. He assembled the group, moved us along, provided us with information and perspective, and was the perfect host. His passion for the ceremony was clearly evident. Well done!
