Fantastic tour! Yes, you can get these tickets for free, but you have to stand in line for several hours the day before to get them. Our guide took us to the seats that were closest to the Pope. She also gave us ia 1 hour presentation without using notes. This tour was the highlight of our trip!

This was a well coordinated tour. The tour leader enabled us to secure a great seat for the papal audience and filled the wait time with informative facts about the vatican and St. Peter's as well as the jubilee year. This certainly saved us alot of time in line.

This was amazing!! Oscar did a wonderful job getting us to a prime seat to see the Pope today. While we waited he spoke for an hour giving us details about the Vatican. I would highly recommend this tour!
Thank you Oscar!!

Wow! It was so exciting to see the Pope and our guide, Florinia, got us SUPER close! I was within 10 feet of Pope Francis! This was a once in a lifetime experience and should not be missed if you are in Rome on a Wednesday.

The Papal Presentation was phenomenal. But what made it even more spectacular was the tour guide that escorted our group into the presentation area. Tiffany was very informative, very knowledgeable as she spoke about the history of Rome. She was very fun to listen to. I highly recommend this tour, it is an absolute one of a kind experience.

What a delightful experience! Our lovely guide helped us get great 2nd row seats. It was freezing, and the sun didn't warm us until much later in the morning wear warm clothes!!!. Papa Francesco was so warm and engaging. Thanks Viator for making this a spectacular experience!

We had a fantastic time. The group was very small and it all went by so quickly but I had a fantastic time and learned so much from our guide.

Although this event is free to the public every Wednesday, since it was our first time in Rome - we would have been lost without our guide.

Tiffany was our guide, who grew up in Indiana USA and recently moved to Italy 10 years ago. Needless to say, her English was very well spoken.

Due to the popular event to see the Pope, we had to arrive 3-4 hours early to secure seats. As we waited Tiffany was able to give us brief but detailed history of Rome 101. My favorite is when she used a Ninja Turtle reference, So then the Pope called all the Ninja Turtles to help him with the arts.

Most breathtaking experience! This was the best of the best! Our guide Francesca was phenomenal!! She was not only very knowledgeable but was truly so very kind and made sure everyone had the best of the best including the view of the Pope that was second to none! This was the highlight of our trip and experience that can't be topped! Catholic or not this is a must see, must do experience!

It was a great experience. Would have only been better if I understood Italian, so I could have understood what Pope Francis was saying. Each language got a synopsis but we misse the jokes and personal things you know he said in Italian because the crowd would laugh

Great tour! While you can get in for free the guides take most of the best seats so it is better to tale a tour. I also found the introduction from the guide very interesting. I would reccomend getting there as early as possible as there are several guides leading this tour and seats fill up fast.

Claudia was our guide and found us excellent seats!
She was a perfect guide, keeping an eye on the group and making sure we stayed together and alleviated the fears of an older member of the group who that she might be left behind.
Our seats were extremely close to Pope Francis as he made his way through the square and being on a corner got to see him come by two times! Claudia's talk about the history of the Vatican and St. Peter's was clear, relevant and helpful.
