On this special tour you will also see the marvelous Trevi Fountain, currently under restoration work, the Pantheon and Navona Square. Cross the Tiber and reach the impressive St. Peter’s Square where you will be blessed by Pope Francis I. If you enjoy walking tours and are limited on time or travel budget, this tour is among our best values.

The "Urbi et Orbi" address and blessing are given each Easter and Christmas from the central loggia of Saint Peter's Basilica in Rome at noontime and are broadcast worldwide through the European Broadcasting Union and other linkups. The address concludes with greetings in many languages in relation to the feast celebrated. On the usual conditions, the Catholic Church grants a plenary indulgence to those who "devoutly receive" the blessing that the Pope give Urbi et Orbi ("to the City of Rome and to the World"). Special departure on Christmas day ensures you to assist the traditional blessing by Pope Francis.
