ITINERARY

Get a guaranteed admission at the Papal Audience in either St. Peter's Square or Nervi Hall. Experience seeing Pope Francis and listening him welcome pilgrims, impart his blessing and lead the prayers. The Papal Audience is not a Mass, but it is definitely a great opportunity to listen to the Pope give a special address in Italian, which will be followed by prayers, a homily, and perhaps some singing. Thanks to our secured priority admission to the event, we will pick you up in the early morning from your hotel and transport you to the Vatican. Live an intense spiritual moment side-by-side with people from around the world. Feel free to pray or simply observe one of the most incredible, long-standing traditions in the Catholic world.

Your experience includes a short panoramic tour of via Nazionale, Piazza Venezia, Corso Vittorio, Corso Rinascimento and the Lungotevere, with drop-off at Piazza dei Tribunali (located about 1 mile/1.6 km from St. Peter’s Basilica). To reach the Basilica, your group will walk past Castel Sant’Angelo and via della Conciliazione. You will check in with our guaranteed tickets in the Square, passing through a metal detector. Our experienced and professional guide will take you to a spot where you will have an excellent view of the ceremony.
