- 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.
Please note: You must reconfirm immediately after booking, on the phone number provided on your voucher.

Please also note that seating is limited for this event. Your guide will do everything possible to allocate you a seat but on rare occasions this may not be possible.

This tour was so well organised, even though it was very early all the guides were there and quickly got their groups organised. Gigi was our guide and he was great from the start with a very warm welcome and clear instructions. He wasted no time getting us through security and into fabulous front row seats.
Once we were all seated he shared many interesting facts about St Peter's Square and the service we were about to take part in. Great morning, but be sure to ask for Gigi.
