Highlights

  • Informative, friendly and professional guide
  • All entrance fees included
Begin with meeting the guide near St. Peter's Square where you will be provided with headsets. 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. You will discover the history of St. Peter's Square created by Bernini in the 17th century as you become familiar with the smallest sovereign state in the world. The presentation unveils the fascinating history of the Papacy and the artists that contributed to the marvel of Vatican City.

Next, witness the audience at Vatican City. Experience the awe and wonder which occurs at the Papal Audience as Cardinals read in various languages reaching out to pilgrims and visitors from the far corners of the world. Then hear the Pope's weekly message as he enters the central stage. Feel free to sing along with the spiritual leaders of the Church and pray with the Pope, the head of State of Vatican City or just sit back and observe this amazing tradition taking place.

Important notice: You must reconfirm this tour immediately after booking, on the phone number provided on your voucher.

Our guide Seth was very nice and we were able to see the Pope who at one point was about 10 feet away! It was wonderful and a once in a life time experience!
