Monica, our guide, did a great job of explaining St. Peters Square history, choosing a Pope, etc. and found us an excellent spot to see the Pope up close.
On this tour, you’re promised an up-close encounter with one of the world’s most significant religious figures. While tickets to the weekly papal audience are free, this tour guarantees you entry and lets you bypass the busy crowds and find a prime viewing position right at the front. Audio headsets ensure you’ll hear your guide’s in-depth commentary, and this intimate tour is capped at only 20 people.
The papal audience is a long-standing tradition that’s attended by both pilgrims and people of diverse backgrounds from all over the world. On this tour, you’re guaranteed seamless admission to this extremely popular weekly event. Meet your guide near St. Peter’s Square in the morning and don an audio headset, which will allow you to clearly hear his or her commentary throughout the tour.
Next, cut through the crowds and find a prime viewing position right at the front of the room. Learn about the history of the papacy and other stories from your guide.
When the event begins, you’ll be perfectly situated to listen to the Pope’s address, watch the cardinals lead pilgrims in prayer, and listen to the hymns, prayers, and homilies that are a traditional part of the papal audience.
When the event is over, you can explore St. Peter’s Square at your leisure.
