Pope Francis Papal Audience was memorable and we received numerous blessings later in the week. Pope Francis spoke in different languages and in a parental soft voice. The ride was timely and gave us time to buy souvenirs. I recommend it to save you time/parking and frustrations/finding where to go with thousands of people going to one place!

Audience with the pope was amazing..we got to see the pope really close..second row..One tip is that tix don't guarantee seats so when you arrive make sure to try to get a chair right away you can do your shopping after..But besides that I recommended it and it was well worth it

We were very happy with our tour to see the Papal Audience. there were about 70,000 people in St. Peters Square and we were about 10 feet from Pope Frances. The bus made it easy for us and well worth the cost.

We just returned from Rome and attending the Papal audience was a great addition to our trip. I will say that our day was not quite what we expected or as advertised. It turned out to be a great experience--but our guide did not stay with us and we appeared to be very late to the square. However--if you wish to see the Pope while in Rome and to experience the excitement--it all worked out for the best. Take an umbrella in case it rains--and plan on being out in the square for about 5 hours.

Picked us up at our hotel (just make sure a day or 2 ahead that you contact them to make SURE they are picking you up versus meeting them somewhere), we switched buses to a bigger bus, and were taken very close to the square. We were there around 8:15am, grabbed our chair(hang on to it!) and waited. It's a long wait, but around 9am a clergyman gets on the microphone and reads a long list of visiting groups. This took about an hour while the various groups cheered when their name was called. Around 10:15 am, the Pope appeared in his Popemobile. The crowd near the Pope's path was very deep, so I suggest standing on your chair to a picture of him when he goes by. He goes around twice, so, if you missed him the first time, there's another opportunity. Then he goes to the stage...great photo op if you have a zoom lense. He speaks and it is translated in various languages, and near the end he blesses objects you may have brought. I bought my rosaries, holy cards, and other religious objects beforehand in the US, but you can also buy them in any of the many souvenir shops in Rome. They are cheap in the stores, like 2-5 euros, but more near the Vatican. It's nice to give as gifts, saying its been blessed by Papa Francesco, as they call him. The ceremony is over around 11:30am, and we met our guide outside the ropes and then walked quite far, maybe 1/4 mile, to get back on the bus. Well worth the trip, one I will never forget!

Not enough stars to rate this experience! No words to describe how excited and blessed to be among the nearly 200,000 people in attendance this day. I was able to fight my way through the crowd and get a decent picture of Pope Francis. I am very proud of this picture!
