What You Can Expect

Papal Audience Ticket at Vatican City

Visit the home of the Catholic Church

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.

Bus picked us up at our Rome hotel and our witty tour guide and his blue umbrella, led us to our seats. It was all that I thought it would be and more. I highly recommend it!

Great view and pics of Pope.
A little confusing re seating arrangements - but we went early, scoped out a great area, and had a great time.

Pick up was on time. Driver was respectful.
Guide for the tour was very pleasant. Have reserved seats very close to where the Pope passes.
Pope passed by our area 2 x.
Tour worth every penny paid. Questioned those ratings that it is not worth it.
Definitely recommend this to those who want to see the Pope . I do not think we could have gotten those seats without the tour guide's help.
I hope they have a tour which bring you back to the hotel.

This is good that you can get the tickets from this company and they drive you to Vatican City. This is pretty much it, you get a ride to Vatican city, get your ticket and after the Papal Audience you can either ride back with the bus or be on your own. We chose to be on our own.
We got to see the Pope close up. Sit on the areas near the railings because that's where the Pope will ride through on his Pope Mobile. I also recommend that you try find a spot with someone who has a baby because your chance of the Pope stopping inf front of you are greater. We got seats for this, and sat near the railings and near someone with a baby so we got see up close. Warning, when Pope starts driving around in Pope Mobile people go crazy, so you might as well stand up on your chair so you can get good pictures, I did!

It was a great tour and extremely affordable. I would definitely recommend it to people. We started at the meeting point near Termini Station. Then made our way to the Vatican in the bus. The tour guide was great. Offering us little bits of information about Rome, the Vatican and the Papal audience. The lines through security were long but moved extremely fast. And of course the Papal audience was great.
