Following the election of Pope Francis I thousands of pilgrims are expected to gather from all around the globe to partake in the Papal Audience. 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!

You will be provided with headsets and guided to your seats in St. Peter's Square or the Sala of Paul VI. Once seated, 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.
You will discover the history of St. Peter's Square created by Bernini in the 17th century as you become familiar with the smallest sovereign state in the world. Our informed guides will provide a detailed explanation of the events of the Papal Audience and prepare you for your gathering with the new Pope.
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 sit back and observe the phenomena while taking it all in.
