Summary of The Day: Experience the only escorted ticket service of the Papal Audience! Thousands of pilgrims from around the globe gather every Wednesday to see Pope Francis. 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, 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 once in a lifetime 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 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. 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 Pope Francis .
