What You Can Expect

Papal Audience Ticket at Vatican City

Visit the home of the Catholic Church

The audience takes place in either St Peter's Square, St Peter's Basilica or the Audience Hall, depending on seasonal conditions and the number of pilgrims visiting on each particular day. Your guide will provide details of when and where to meet the bus at the end of the Papal Audience.

You'll begin this special day with a relaxing coach tour across Rome. Your city tour includes a live commentary and offers a brief introduction to Rome as you travel by bus to the Vatican City. Highlights en route include Piazza della Repubblica, following the ancient Aurelian Walls, the famous Villa Borghese gardens and the northern gate of Rome leading into Piazza del Popolo, where you will glimpse an Egyptian obelisk dating back to the time of Ramses II. Upon arrival at St Peter's Square you will pass the impressive Castel Sant'Angelo, the ancient tomb of Emperor Hadrian.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended March 2014

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

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

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.
