Attend a Papal Audience with Pope Francis I at the Vatican! Tickets may be free but they are extremely hard to come by, so booking in advance is essential. By booking ahead, you're ensuring you won't waste any time trying to get tickets while you're on vacation in the Eternal City. 
  • Papal Audience with Pope Francis I at the Vatican
  • Make a booking to ensure you don't miss this special opportunity
  • Short sightseeing tour with live commentary en route to the Vatican
  • Expert local guide
  • Pickup from centrally located Rome hotels
Depending on the season and weather conditions and the number of devotees visiting that day, the audience can take place in the Audience Hall, St. Peter's Basilica or St. Peter's Square. 
Start this unique day with a comfortable coach tour that traverses Rome. As you pass by legendary landmarks, learn about the history of the city from your guide. See the ancient Aurelian Walls, the villa Borghese, and Piazza del Popolo with its twin Baroque churches and the Egyptian obelisk at the center of the public space. 
Then cross over the Tiber River and pass by the imposing Castel Sant' Angelo, the tomb of Roman Emperor Hadrian, before arriving in Saint Peter's Square.

Skip the line was really helpful with pre-purchasing on Viator with the Papal Audience ticket. However, I think if the organizer / operator can help to deliver ticket to buyer's hotel before the event, it will be a lot more easier upon checking in the hotel for the buyer. He or she can also plan her/his own schedule more easier.

This was very well organised and we had no waiting around and seats to sit on.
A very moving experience.

Very well organised and were given seats very close and got great views of the Pope.
Please be aware this is a one way ticket and you will have to make your own way back to your hotel something we was not made aware of.

I am very fortunate to still have 2 tickets for the Papal Audience. Although I know you can get tickets by emailing the Vatican, but thats no assurance that I can get tickets.

But thanks to Viator. We had a blessed Wednesday morning with Pope Francis in the auditorium.

This was a fantastic experience! While tickets for a papal audience are free, going this route made he experience easy and so enjoyable, the short trip to The Vatican included a tour of the city with some terrific facts and great information, the guide was fantastic and once we arrived we were able to get right in and had amazing seats and a spectacular view! If a papl audience is on your bucket list, do not miss this experience! Worth every penny!

If you want to see the Pope and experience his readings a tour is the way to go. Our guide was friendly and helpful. Our tour allowed us to have seating. This is the only way to go if you want to see the Pope.

This was not as pleasant as I was expected. It was not worthy to book the guide. First, he arrived late at the hotel, 45 minutes after they told us they would pick us up at 8:15. Second, there was no special service or quick access lines to enter the site. We had to go through the same line with hundredths of people like everyone else. Once we got inside, he just showed us the room where hundreths of people were sitting, pointed to empty seats and then left. He was gone shortly after that. Money thrown out and spent for nothing. These services were not worthy. I would have been better off doing it by myself.

The Papal Audience was amazing. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful. They advised us on how to get the best experience from the tour. It was unbelievably superb.
