What to expect

After meeting your guide you will have access tickets to attend the weekly General Audience that Pope Francis I presides every Wednesday in either St. Peter's Square or Nervi Hall in the Vatican City.

The Audience consists of small teachings and readings in Italian and other languages (depending on the groups visiting). The Pope greets the pilgrims and groups in each language. The ceremony ends with the Pope and visitors praying together 'Our Father' in Latin (printed on the back of the Papal Audience ticket). The Pope will then impart his Apostolic Blessing upon the crowd and the world and bless any religious articles that visitors bring for this special purpose (such as rosary beads).

Experience an intense, spiritual moment of emotion and reflection, along with thousands of people from all over the world. Feel free to pray or simply observe one of the most incredible, long-standing traditions in the world.

Your experience includes a short walking tour around the area. We will walk to reach St Peter's Basilica. When we arrive in the square, we will check-in with our reserved tickets and pass a metal detector security control. Your experienced guide will then take you to a spot with an excellent view of the ceremony.
