This tour is available every Wednesday morning (unless the Pope is absent) and length about 4 hours in total. You will be picked up at your hotel or any other location at 8:15am.
Tickets to guarantee sitting will be pre arranged together with private direct transportation from your hotel to the Vatican.
After crossing the Villa Borghese gardens and passing in front of Castel Sant’Angelo, the ancient pope fortress, we reach St. Peter’s square where you will be admitted to the papal audience (Shorts and uncovered shoulders are not admitted into the audience). After a hopeful message pronounced in various languages, his Holiness will give his blessing. The audience can be held either in the Sala Nervi or in the Square; at any time, the time could change, and in this case, the starting time of the tour will change accordingly. Being part of an audience with the Holy Father is a memorable religious and cultural experience. The Papal Audience lasts about 90 minutes and at the end, you will return to your hotel or at any other place of your convenience.
DiscoveryGuidedTours reserves free of charge the mandatory Papal Audience tickets in order to participate in the Pope Francis Audience.
Cut out the hassle and collect your prebooked ticket directly from your driver when you arrive. Then, head inside St Peter’s Square early to ensure the best possible views of the pope’s address.
