Highlights

Following the election of Pope Francis I demand for Papal Audience tickets has risen dramatically. Already known for his charisma and eloquence during addresses, Pope Francis I has attracted thousands of pilgrims, traveling from all of the world to see him. Unfortunately, with limited seats, not everyone can participate. Navigating through the masses of people can be overwhelming which is why we have created a service to ensure the best experience possible. We achieve this by providing headsets, a competent and informed guide, and a thorough explanation of what you will experience during the Papal Audience.

We reserve your tickets (which are free of cost), pick them up and bring them to you. We get you inside early to ensure better seats, and we stay with you until the Pope begins his address. Our informed staff takes care of all the details so that you can relax and truly enjoy this special experience!

The Papal Audience Presentation, lead by your guide, unveils the fascinating history of the Papacy and the artists that contributed to the marvel of Vatican City. You will be provided with headsets and guided to the best available space in St. Peter's Square or the Sala of Paul VI. Once settled, your guide will explain the origin of the Papacy from the first Christians through Constantine’s era and up to the current wonder of the Holy See and the recent resignation of Pope Benedict XVI and the election of Pope Francis I.

Experience the awe and wonder which occurs at the Papal Audience as Cardinals preach in various languages reaching out to pilgrims and visitors from the far reaches of the world. Listen to Pope Francis I's weekly message as he enters the central stage. Feel free to sing with the spiritual leaders of the Church and pray with the Pope - the head of State of Vatican City. Or just relax and observe the phenomena while taking it all in. Whatever way you choose to experience the Papal Audience, rest assured that you will be fully informed by our helpful staff so this experience will be a memorable one.

Stephanie was an excellent tour guide. She knew exactly how to strategize the seating and i was able to be first at the corridor and be within a couple meters of the Pope. Stephanie also gave an excellent history and was very positive and pleasant. Great experience.

Stephanie used her experience to find the group an excellent vantage point to witness the audience before the arrival of Pope Francis. She gave the group a very informative insight into the history of the Papacy. She was humorous and involved the group at all times throughout the history lesson. Well worth the early start to witness this magical event.

Guide got us well positioned to see the Pope pass by, and was very informative with her remarks while we waited for the event to start.
