- 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.

I booked this as a surprise tour to celebrate my wife and is 25th wedding anniversary. The Pope had been unwell the week before so the audience was held inside in front of 7000 people rather than the larger crowd outside. I am not a religious man myself but could not believe the enthusiasm of the crowd and the atmosphere is something that i will never forget. Our tour guide GiGi delivered the tour with enthusiasm, charm and wit and made the tour that little bit more memorable. I would highly recommend this if you are a religious person as you will not witness anything like it in a church.
