- Informative, friendly and professional guide
- All entrance fees included
With plenty of time to secure a prime position to see the pope as he arrives, you’ll follow your guide through the crowds to take your seat. Once settled, listen as your guide offers insight into the rich history and traditions associated with the papacy.
Learn the origins of the papacy from the time of the first Christians through the Roman era to the present day, and hear of the famous artists like Michelangelo who contributed to Vatican’s aesthetic beauty. Your audio headset ensures that you'll hear your guide over the hubbub of the audience.
Listen as the cardinals preach to the pilgrims in prayer, and watch the pope deliver his blessings and weekly address, which includes prayers, hymns and a homily.

We were fortunate to have access to the area where the pope was. We were 3 rows back. Very close. Our guide gave an informative introduction prior to her departure while we waited for the pope and the service.
For me, it was amazing.

This was the best of all the tours we took! Extremely blessed to see Pope Francesko at 2-3 mts distance thanks to the place where the tour guide seated us - last line. The Pope passed by in his Papa Mobil right behind us. Indescriptible experience! A miracle that we were able to see him that close considering the thousands of people in the area. Make sure to arrive on time to the meeting point and to have a nice breakfast. Following reviews, we stay long after the Audience finish. We were able to see the Pope again when he was leaving St. Marco Square. Highly recommend!!
