Experience the only escorted service of the Papal Audience! Enjoy an informative presentation on the Popes and the Vatican, including what to expect during the Audience.
Thousands of pilgrims from around the globe gather every Wednesday to see Pope Francis. Unfortunately, with limited spots available, not everyone can participate. We book and pick up your invitation for you, so all you have to do is show up. Invitations are completely free but must be reserved and picked up in advance of the audience, something which might be hard to manage if you are visiting Rome from abroad.
For your Papal Audience experience you’ll be provided with headsets, a competent and informed guide, and a thorough explanation of what you will experience during the Papal Audience. You will be guided to the location where the Papal Audience will be held: either St. Peter’s Square or the Sala of Paul VI. Once inside, your guide will explain the origin of the Papacy from the first Christians through Constantine’s era and up to the current wonder of the Holy See.
