Laura is an amazing guide. She made sure to tell us where to sit to see the Pope up close. She also explained the history and is very detailed. Really learned a lot from this tour. It’s such a wonderful experience. Thank you, Laura!!!

Excellent experience. Our guide, Laura, was very knowledgeable and fun to be around. She guided us to seats very close to where the Pope exits the auditorium (about 6 feet away). In addition to the wealth of knowledge she shared during the tour, she also answered several questions for participants after the tour, and helped us find a great spot nearby for lunch following the tour. Would definitely recommend her and hope we can receive a tour from her again.

Itinerary

Tour duration: 4.5 hours.

This tour takes out the stress of planning a visit to Vatican City. Your professional guide will share stories about the unique history of the Vatican. They'll also ensure that you see the Pope and make the most of your morning attending the audience. Every week thousands of people visit the Vatican to hear the Pope speak during Wednesday’s General Audience. If the weather is nice, the audience takes place in the spectacular St Peter's Square. If it's raining or cold, the meeting happens in the Paul VI Hall inside the Vatican. This modern auditorium was designed by the Italian architect Pier Luigi Nervi in 1971.

After checking-in and meeting your guide, you will walk to the Vatican via the quaint alleys and corners of the Borgo. The cobblestone streets of Rome's "14th neighborhood" next to St. Peter's Square are laden with history and have been home to Popes and famous artists. You'll then find yourself in St. Peter's Square and take in its majesty and atmosphere.

Although the tickets are free, bookings are required weeks in advance, and the process can be difficult. This is where we’re ready to help out. We'll hand you the pre-booked tickets and your guide will get you there in time to find a good place to see the Pope. You may even hold his hand as he walks among the audience and heads toward his seat on the stage. At this unique event, the Pope gives the main address in Italian followed by a summary or greeting in at least eight languages.

Book with us early to make sure you don't miss out. And we won't leave you alone. After the audience, your tour guide will meet you in via della Conciliazione, close to St Peter's Square.
